Agree…this bears watching, but then again, they ALL do. This is what you do when you want a government to FAIL!
Rexit is official.
I wasn’t even aware Trump had a PA…but he’s out the door today too.
Wow! Do not see that one coming.
fuckin haahahahahaha! REXIT I’m dying
Yeah I was struggling to wake up this morning so reached for twitter to see if there was any rage to jumpstart me out of bed, my eyes popped open and I almost didn’t even need coffee.
Re: John McEntee
President Donald Trump’s longtime personal aide John McEntee was fired because he is currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes, a source familiar with his firing told CNN.
A spokesman for United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement has resigned, saying that he could no longer “bear the burden” of spreading falsehoods on behalf of the Trump administration.
How dare John McEntee get caught for financial crimes by Homeland Security…doesn’t he know he might tarnish our wonderful-walking-on-water- POTUS? Shit, why did I even get out of bed today!?
And, of course, this (from the CNN article): “Minutes after news of his departure broke, the Trump campaign announced McEntee would be joining the reelection effort as a senior adviser for campaign operations.” They must be looking for advice on how to launder more money into the campaign.
Never forget: the sword dance.

Steve Goldstein, Top Spokesperson at the State Department
The following article has some good background information on this Trump appointee and the circumstances surrounding his firing. I didn’t realize he was the fourth ranking official in the State Department.
I do a little indoor rowing myself and until now I never knew that there was such a thing as “competitive indoor rowing”. What a sheltered life I’ve been leading?
Thanks to WTF for the many ways I am enlightened every day, & I only wish they were all as pleasant as this sideline.
And it’s only been one week since this tweet
What is even happening anymore?!
but there is no CHAOS
Rumored: Another cabinet switch up?
Head of NASA to retire
Do any of these people even know what their title is anymore? You can’t just switch people out and then into positions that require senate confirmation. Pompeo isn’t “hired.” He needs confirmation. Ugh.
Yes, they will need to be confirmed by the senate, the lone exception is the of the Deputy Director of the CIA, Gina Haspel, as she will become the Acting Director until she can be confirmed by the Senate. As acting Director, only Trump can force her out.
Rexit continues…Tillerson’s Chief of Staff & Deputy Chief of Staff.
Larry Kudlow - a Trump loyalist - to replace Gary Cohn.
