Regarding your implication that the other choice would have been better, there's this:

McFarland's candidacy was plagued by media and other allegations that she overstated her credentials. The New York Times reported that McFarland's claim that she had written part of Ronald Reagan's "Star Wars" speech was false and had actually been written by Reagan's "top national security advisers," which did not include McFarland.[7] Regarding her being the highest ranking woman of her time at the Reagan Pentagon, the newspaper reported that this was also false and that two women at the Pentagon at the time held higher ranks

The left, including you, whose stated goal is is obstruction by any means, would have had a field day with that one.
Huh? McFarland is the deputy national security advisor. Harward wanted to bring in his own staff and get rid of mcfarland and the reat of Flynns loony tune crew. Trump refused that, so Harward declined the job.
