“I fired White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. I got tired of hearing that there is someone mentally unstable in the White House. #Bannon” – Donald J. Trump (18.08.2017).
It took him 210 in office before the White House Strategist Stephen Bannon got fired, the former Campaign Manager of Trump and the know Republican President Donald J. Trump. Clearly, the White House is still in shambles and in major troubles. A general has already reshuffled with a new close Trump aide this week with Hope Hicks as White House Communications Director, which is the third one just in that position. Therefore, you can wonder if Jared Kushner will become the Strategist too, since Trump has now so few to trust.
NBC reports today:
“Statement from the Press Secretary
White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day. We are grateful for his service and we wish him the best” (White House/NBC 18.08.2017).
This is just a shocking, but not surprising at this point, anyone hired by Trump will most likely be fired by him. Not because it just their fault, but anyone else than Trump has to jump on their sword. The suicide and doubling down might come naturally to Trump, but he will blame his aides and his people. Not take the blame himself. That Trump is a racist is now sure and he tries defend himself with another sacking. Not that it makes him brighter or wiser. It doesn’t, just look like more chaos in the White House.
Just like the New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzia reports: “ Source close to WH on Trump: “this whole idea that he plays three dimensional chess & we play checkers is bullshit” Adds he rarely has plan. Source close to WH adds “what the hell does it matter at this point?” who’s running the show, since “they’re not getting anything done.”Source close to WH says they’re “worried” about the survival of Stephen Miller and Kellyanne Conway.“I don’t see any senior decision makers around the president besides the Vice President who are real conservatives.” – source close to WH” (Olivia Nuzzia, 18.08.2017).
This sort of reporting is believable, as it seems, since the White House have fired and hired without any plan or any consideration of plans or strategy. Therefore, the second Chief of Staff has been allowed to fire White House Communication Director Anthony Scaramucci, but Scaramucci was also the reason for the fall of Sean Spicer and Reince Preibus. Therefore, the random sackings and the failing administration shows it’s perspective.
Certainly, John Kelly might want the White Supremacists, White Nationalist and the Neo-Nazis away from the White House, but than the Chief of Staff has to evict his master, President Trump. President Trump are clearly supporting Confederate ideas and “Unite the Right” initiatives, as he never has spoken or denounced the support of Grand Wizard David Duke, neither Jason Kessler or Richard Spencer for that matter. There have been enough grand standing racists he likes to be affiliated with, therefore, shuffling out Bannon will not clear the house of white trash. There will still be some left behind.
There is still Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka, they are not sound minds as well. Both of them has views and perspective not far from Bannon. If not in the same league as Bannon. So, it is not like the shop has none disturbing forces there. The most disturbing one is the President. A President who has sentiments in favor of the Alt-Right, the Neo-Nazis, White Supremacist and White Nationalist, a false-romantic favors for the Confederate heroes.
This is the American Experience right now… but let’s hope Robert Mueller team can do something about this White House, have enough indictments and criminal conspiracy, to charge and collect close-knitted personnel and high-ranking officials to impeach Trump. Because the American people should hope for someone who is not a racist-in-charge, but a man who stand behind certain values and moral standing with their people. Peace.
Let me just say I had a milk longer in the fridge than the length of time Anthony Scaramucci was working for Trump. Because Scaramucci started his work on the 21st July 2017. Anthony Scaramucci are than hired White House as the new Director of Communications. While he arrives, Press Secretary Sean Spicer resigns as an effect of the hiring of the Wall Street Financier. But, suddenly today, after General John Kelly is hired and sworn-in his oath to be the New Chief of Staff after this after Reince Priebus resigns or was sacked Friday the 28th July.
“President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci as Communication Director, as requested by the new chief of staff, John Kelly” (New York Times, 31.07.2017).
That General John Kelly wanted to get rid of Scaramucci wasn’t strange. Since Scaramucci did everything in his power to disrespect and humiliate Priebus. This was during interviews, in conversations with the press and directly to anyone. Making sure that everyone knew that Priebus wasn’t his boss, because that the friend in Donald Trump. How stupid of him to believe the newly found loyalty and trust in the President. That he would have the back of Scaramucci, the second Director of Communication in 6 months.
This is some of the words Scaramucci said in his brief time as an employee at the White House(most people has had milk longer in their fridges):
““Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac…’Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’” (…) “OK, the Mooch showed up a week ago. This is going to get cleaned up very shortly, OK.” (Chris Cillizza – ‘Anthony Scaramucci’s absolutely bananas quotes to the New Yorker, ranked’ – 27.07.2017 link: http://edition.cnn.com/2017/07/27/politics/scaramucci-lizza-quotes-ranked/index.html).
So the first order was to get rid of the man, who was the last straw to get rid of Piebus. Somewhere in the world must both Spicer and Priebus be laughing at the cruel intervention. Certainly, Kelly are just considering how Scaramucci would not follow protocol or respect the chain-of-command. As Scaramucci, would always get close support from his friend and confidant Trump. Seems, like Trump could ditch him like cold-coffee.
You can wonder who wants the position now as Mike Dubke resigned on 30th May 2017 and Scaramucci got hired on the 21st July 2017. Let see who is the next Tinkerbell who wants the job, maybe one of them folks sitting on the coaches at ‘Fox and Friends’, even Sean Hannity might want his title for a minute. Tomi Lahren might want a gig, since she is free for hire very soon. Alex Jones might want some extra funds for different court trials and secure income compared to trading specialized vitamins on InfoWars. Who knows who they are going to hire, maybe on of the Goodfella’s at Sinclair Media?
Who knows who wants this tainted position in this New York Gang administration. Total chaos and now General in his right mind would like to stir this pot. Nothing that comes out of it is edible, it is all destroyed and its reputation is shattered by the levels of sacrifice of loyalty to Trump, but he does not reciprocate. Maybe new WH Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has the answers or Kellyann Conway has some wisdom, because now there is yet another victim in the sack-race. Then who is up next?
The Republican Party should be shocked and in awe of the latest casualty in the White House. The former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, the long-time Republican National Committee (RNC) staffer. Who know was dispatched out of the White House like a cold coffee. This after the new Director of Communication Director Anthony Scaramucci has unleashed headbanging interviews and tweets about the possible leaks from Prebius. Not that he is the only one, but he main culprit in the eyes of President Trump and his new hire.
The White House under President Trump hasn’t been stable and will not be so. Since the in-fighting and power-struggle, seems to be order of the day. Instead of leading a steady ship, Trump prefer reality-show shocks and scandals. This is West-Wing and Political Drama’s on TV on Steroids. But this is just another Friday for the Donald.
Press Secretary Sean Spicer left because of Scaramucci, Mike Dubke resigned in May from his position as Communication Director in May 2017. Than, after the Spicer left, the Deputy Spokeperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders become the Spokesperson! Gen. Mike Flynn was fired after foreign relations and financial support, that damaged his position in the cabinet as a National Security Adviser after 18 days. So that the Reince Priebus leaves the White House, says a lot about the 6 months of Trump. And the General John Kelly are the one, who has the stomach to control the White House. So, the General went today from being Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to White House Chief of Staff. Clearly, he is running for loyalty to the state, but might as so many before be eaten by Trump’s leadership.
So the ones coming directly from the GOP or the Republican Party are now the first to fly the ship. The ones who has political suction and worked directly for the party. It isn’t the ones coming from Goldman Sachs, the ones coming from the Wall Street or as business leaders. They are staying in their cabinet position. But the ones who had a political affiliation and political life before becoming part of the Trump Administration. Are now being left behind, they are the rare fruit in the administration. The New York Gang is trying to wreck the White House.
The are now reports that the GOP loyalist plan is a max exodus from the White House, since they have now cut deep ties with the Republican Party. This with firing Priebus and Spicer. Even Dubke has worked directly for the party. There aren’t many officials left in the cabinet or around Trump who resemble the party, unless the RNC and GOP represent the 1% of the Republic. If so, than it’s status is perfect. Plus, most of the ones behind has some history and connections to Moscow or had financial ties with Russian associates, which at this present moment is a giant plus if Trump wants to hire your American to his staff.
We can just wonder what else will unfold. Since there been rumors for a week that Priebus might fall. There been similar on Sessions, but he doesn’t have the heart and wants to serve the Republic. Therefore, Trump has directly axes him and make it publicly. That will yet another step into Obstruction of Justice, but at this point, Trump is a villain in a public office. Civil Servants and people wanting to make a career should wait until this presidency is over. Since the risk of total humiliation and utter disgrace might happen to you.
Do you think Priebus wanted this stain on his legacy, do you think Spicer will be proud showing clips of his defense of Trump to his grand-kids? Surely somewhere is White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon pounding on how to use his Breitbart back-channel and how else to play out his political career behind the scenes. Since President Trump get all the slack, while he can in the backroom do as he pleases. Even Vice President Mike Pence should wonder what is next, since he has to come with a lie and excuse, when Trump does something or tweets some nonsense. That is just occurring with steady pace and unlimited misunderstandings of role as President.
Enough for today, President Trump might unleash more foolishness soon. We can never know, but deflections from what matters is essential. Because knowledge of misuse of power and lawbreaking breaches to reach power should never be accepted. Peace.
Today the Communication Director of the While House Michael Dubke officially resigns. The resignation letter was delivered to President Donald Trump on the 18th May 2017. As the director recalls himself in a statement:
“In a private meeting with the President on Thursday, May 18th I tendered my resignation as Assistant to the President for Communications. I offered to remain in the position through the President’s International Trip and he accepted. The reasons for my departure are personal, but it has been my great honor to serve President Trump and this administration. It has also been my distinct pleasure to work side-by-side, day-by-day with the staff of the communications and press departments. This White House is filled with some of the finest and hardest working men and women in the American Government” (Michael Dubke, 30.05.2017).
It is hard to have seen a Communication Director in the White House of late, as the President Trump is never steady on the message, neither is the people representing him like Sean Spicer, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Stephen Miller and Kellyanne Conway.
While Katrina Pierson and Boris Epshteyn are now gone already, one has become part of Sinclair Media, while Pierson has left the map totally. Certainly, she can still explain the difference of aircraft’s that is still in use.
Well, what is more worrying is that the White House had a Communication Director like Dubke. Since nothing has seemed controlled or even well messaged out of the Trump Administration. That is also in par because the President counter the message of his people before 24 hours has gone. So it is not Dubke fault, but he would be the fall guy. The guy beaten day-by-day because of the Administration erratic behavior.
“Dubke founded Crossroads Media in 2001 and brought it to a level of national prominence during the 2008 presidential campaign. It is “the premier Republican media services firm,” according to a description on its website. And Dubke has “a unique understanding of the relationship between political strategy and public policy development,” the website explains” (Acosta & McKirdy, 2017). So Dubke has worked on his own with media and serviced the current majority party in the Senate and Representatives House at Capitol Hill. So he should have enough experience and know what was coming when getting the Communication Director at the White House.
Still, he couldn’t have envisioned that the White House would be as hazardous or complex as the President and his team isn’t coherent or not portraying itself like so. Therefore, for a person who has some sort of pride in his work or even want his image not tarnished. It is wise that he is stepping down in the midst of speculations and the Russian Probe. This together with the toxic legislation and the lesser popularity of the President. So he is wise in this manner, though it would have been wiser not to even accept the position in the first place.
Today, is just a mark of further speculation of how fragile and how the futile state of the White House. Just months into term of the President. This is the second resignation of this administration, first one since Michael Flynn. If the erratic behavior and the trouble waters doesn’t get cleared. The dirt and the problems will lead to more people resigning. Even as this administration hasn’t hired the needed people in and around the departments and government agencies. Peace.
