This says it all G. The first and last, sentence in your link.
When Donald Trump promised he’d drain the swamp, he didn’t tell us he meant he’d be getting rid of his own people.

Can the last one out of the White House turn out the lights?

Can't feel sorry for any of these people. All through the campaign and up until now, they've lied. They'd tell us that we didn't hear Trump correctly. Or what he said is not what he meant. They'd constantly tell us the truth is false.

They assisted this man in his quest to convince us that our democratic institutions were completely broken. That they should be seen as partisan, ignored and dismantled. All this time they were promoting a menace to society, the rule of law, and our way of life as being the greatest. One can only hope what the future holds for them is pay back.

I heard an interesting analysis; the host of X22 predicted this was going to happen. Basically, what he said was that Trump needed to build his administration from the ground up, and since he didn't have all of the candidates for the various staff positions at-hand he had to employ RNC people, whom he was going to get rid of at first oppty.

On the other hand, it seems to me that Trump likes to pit his staff against each other, which is a terrible way to get anything done. I used to work for one of these manipulative types, and all it did was breed dissension and waste time.

As a supervisor of 12 highly-trained professionals, I vowed never to repeat that mistake. Instead I created a series of interlocking teams. (Lesson learned: never assign the same work at the same level of authority to two or more people,) Pitting people against each other is a terrible way to run things. It may work on reality TV but it doesn't work in real life.

Anyway, I assumed Reince would be out the minute he was appointed. I always thought he was a sop to the RNC, and not really on Trump's side. What I don't "get" is how Steve Bannon cozied up to Reince; what does that say for Bannon's future with the WH?

I posted this in the other thread, but I thought I'd post it here too.

It's not fair to include nominees, because they were never "in" to being with, so yours is a biased list. Here is the corrected list, separating the "fired" from the "quit" or "never confirmed" list

Quote:

- YOU'RE FIRED!
- Michael Flynn, National Security Advisor- definitely fired
- Katie Walsh, Deputy White House Chief of Staff - yeah, pretty much fired
- Boris Epshteyn, a Special Assistant to the President - hard to say if he left or was fired
- Shermichael Singleton, Senior Adviser at HUD- fired. Really. Escorted out and everything.
- Craig Deare, the NSC’s senior director for Western Hemisphere Affairs - yep, fired too.

***

GOODBYE
- K.T. McFarland, Deputy National Security Advisor- is Ambassador to Singapore, not "fired"
- Monica Crowley, advisor to the National Security Council quit because of charges of plagiarism, not fired,
- Andy Puzder, nominee for Labor Secretary never confirmed
- Vincent Viola, nominee for Army Secretary never confirmed
- Philip Bilden, nominee for Navy Secretary never confirmed
- Anthony Scaramucci, White House liaison to the business community - BACK AGAIN!
- Marcus Peacock, senior White House budget adviser at OMB left to become a lobbyist
- Todd Ricketts, nominee for Deputy Commerce Secretary never confirmed
- Mark Green, nominee for Army Secretary never confirmed
- James Donavan, nominee for Deputy Treasury Secretary never confirmed
- Mike Dubke, White House communications director quit



However, don't forget to add Sean Spicer.

Strictly from a non-political viewpoint, it thrills me to see so many powerful people being put out of work.

It's not cool losing a nice job because of circumstances that are beyond your control, is it Assholes!???


The idea that they'd be unemployable after this is just too much to hope for, but a guy can dream, can't he?

America loves a winner!



The GOP didn't want Trump to win, and he won anyway. Reince et al from the GOP were trying to sabotage the admin from the inside.

Good fucking riddance.

I agree, BUT it was remarkably bad judgment by Trump to put these people in their positions in the first place. I never liked the choices of Priebus, Spicer, Sessions, Flynn, and just about everyone else he appointed. I like Mattis, Tillerson, and Ivanka. That's about it.

Time will tell on that one.

I still think that all of this possibly is just his way of draining the swamp.

Love Trump or hate Trump, or be completely indifferent to Trump....

But you've got to admit that a whole lot of big shots are getting their walking papers.

The MSM constantly being embarrassed is just gravy.

What we see now as bad judgment might have been meant as a show of concession and willingness to work with those who openly mocked and impeded his campaign.

Trump is a novice at D.C. games, but I suspect he's a quick study. Folks forget, because the Media aren't shoving it down our face 24/7, but in Clinton's first term, he had to go to his 3rd choice for AG, Janet Reno, before it stuck. And quite frankly, she turned out to be a disaster, so for all the talk about ' there's no such thing as on-the-job training for being President ' , there really kinda is. Becaus there's no other job like it.

This is a great point, and i think many have forgotten about it.

It reminds me of former Dallas Cowboy quarterback Don Meredith singing at the end of Monday Nighty Football:

"Turn out the lights, the party's over"

Ha!
