When powerful people give sought after jobs to their undeserving (and incompetent) family members and friends, for the purpose of social status and to help them have a superficial sense of value and self-worth; and also to others as either payback for favors or with the expectations of receiving them. Meanwhile, the people who are actually worthy of those jobs, are given no consideration and thought of as being expendable.
The Senator promised to appoint the best candidates for jobs, but as soon as he was elected, the first job he handed out was to his dipshit son. He could barely tell you his title, much less how to do the job. Nepotism in politics would be laughable if it wasn’t so sad.

Appointing one family no matter how unqualified they are.
Donald Trump appointed his daughter's husband to be a key member of his administration. Despite the $2.5million in bribes paid to get into Harvard Jared had mediocre grades, an acumen for making horrible business decisions and a general lack of real-world qualifications. Jared has an impressive resume including bringing peace to the Middle East(after reading 25 books), solving America's opioid epidemic while on a golf outing with his father in law, negotiating Mexico to pay for the wall with his housekeeper, brought peace to North Korea and China, reforming the USA criminal justice system, and helping to reform the US Government into a privately owned company in a blatant act of nepotism.
