Trump Administration* - Fired / Quit

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Trump's revolving door of shame

... All Trump had to do was say some version of: “The people have put me here, and I know what I don’t know, and I’m calling on the very best minds that our party and our country have to offer. I need your help, and I need your expertise.” He could have built a truly first-rate administration.

That moment has long since passed, and now no one with a reputation still to lose wants to have anything to do with this calamity. What we sensed then, and know now, is that Trump isn’t a guy who asks for help. He’s not inspired by talent and intellect; he’s threatened by it.

Trump told us long ago exactly what kind of manager he is — the kind who needs to know he’s the smartest guy at the table.

No wonder he’s had so much trouble filling the chairs.
Forum post, not sure if it's fully accurate:
Here's some FACTS for ya. In the past 53 years, demos held office for 25 of those years. Dems had 3 executive branch indictments, 1 conviction and 1 did time in prison.

Republicans held office for 28 years, had 120 criminal indictments of executive branch officials, 89 convictions and 34 did time is prison.

President Obama administration Had ZERO. Not so much as a major scandal.
So many wingnuts, so little time.

I'm starting to think this Trump feller doesn't know what he's doing.

I think it's going to be easier to track a list of people that are still there.

‘SNL’ Weekend Update Host Colin Jost: White House Is Basically Just ‘That Dead Mall in Your Hometown’ at This Point (Video)

... “Who still works in our government?” Jost said to kick things off. “Like, who still does an actual government job? At this point, the White House is like that dead mall in your hometown. It’s just a sunglasses kiosk and a couple of raccoons fighting in a JC Penney.”

Jost mentioned how Hick resigned from her White House post in order to pursue “other opportunities,” an idea that Jost found hilarious.

“You know things are bad when a 29-year-old with no experience, who works directly for the president of the United States, thinks ‘I gotta get out of this dead end job!'” Jost joked. “She’s resigning to pursue other opportunities the way people on the Titanic decided they wanted to start seeing other boats.”

... And, of course, the meeting President Trump had this past week with lawmakers in which he suggested strict gun control laws only to a day later seemingly reverse course after meeting with representatives from the NRA.

“So he was alone in a room with a bunch of gun enthusiasts and they somehow managed to change his mind,” Che said. “You know that once happened to me. I once spoke out against gang violence but then after a very private meeting with the Bloods on the roof of my building I realized I disagreed with myself too.”

Guests on this Weekend Update included “SNL” cast member Cecily Strong as Hope Hicks to read a touching goodbye letter to folks in the Trump administration ...

Top Trump economic aide Gary Cohn resign

Comments:
TRUMP FANS: why do you think people keep fleeing this administration?
I can't imagine how much Trump must be tired of winning by now...all this winning is exhausting.
Just clearing space for the "best" people?
Trump running this once proud nation like one of his casinos. Failure.
Trump will be having a Job Fair next week. Illegals welcome!!!!!!!!!
I'm running out of popcorn!
Trump only hires the best! And when they see what a trainwreck he is, they bail!

At this point I'm assuming that on Trump's old Apprentice show, "You're fired!" was usually edited in to replace contestants' "I quit!" or the producer saying "He's not around any more. He got arrested."

"Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!"
- Current Trump Tweet

Wikipedia: Gina Haspel:
Haspel ran a "black site" CIA prison located in Thailand in 2002. The site was codenamed "Cat’s Eye" and held suspected al Qaeda members Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri and Abu Zubaydah for a time. The Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA torture specifies that during their detention at the site they were waterboarded and interrogated using no longer authorized methods. Declassified CIA cables specify that Zubaydah was waterboarded 83 times in a month, was sleep deprived, kept in a "large box", had his head slammed against a wall and he lost his left eye. Zubaydah was deemed, by the CIA interrogators, to not be in possession of any useful intelligence.*

Haspel later was the chief of staff to Jose Rodriguez, who headed the CIA's Counterterrorism Center. In his memoir, Rodriguez wrote that Haspel had "drafted a cable" in 2005 ordering the destruction of dozens of videotapes made at the black site in Thailand.
* Despite this, he's still been held without trial for 16 years.

So, a very good day for torturers even if Saccone loses.

Wow.

Maybe next:

DeVos gets cold shoulder from White House after interviews

Yeah, the N. Korea meeting is never gonna happen. Meanwhile, Dolt .45 has announced to the world that N. Korea is as important as the US and Kim is as important as POTUS. Kim wins.

And James Schwab, ICE spokesperson, quits over having to lie for Trump admin including Sessions. Maybe should be in "Heros" thread instead, but gone is gone...

The very first words of the video, POSPOTUS: "The state of California, they are doing a lousy management job."

:lol: Oh, the irony.


I'm seeing many comments along the lines of:
Tillerson is the ONLY TRUMP ADMINISTRATION FIGURE to name Russia as being complicit in the poisoning in UK. Trump probably ordered him to retract the comment and he refused. Tillerson will be the next person through Mueller’s door. Mueller has his questions all ready. Go, Mueller!
The Trump people can stop calling this fake news
Trump just said last week that Tillerson leaving was FAKE NEWS! What a clown.
It's so strange that whenever the News sources predict this months ago, the GOP and Russian sympathisers call it "Fake News". I'm starting to see a pattern.
Ok, 2 weeks ago Trump had no idea that Putin wanted Tillerson fired so he called it fake news. Nothing strange here.

Oh yeah, and this guy...

Trump’s personal assistant John McEntee fired from White House and escorted out due to ‘unspecified security issue’

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world ... 53816.html

Wonder what he did or didn't do.

....fired and escorted off of the White House grounds because of an "unspecified security issue"....

....reports indicate that he was not allowed to gather his personal belongings before leaving....
That sort of scandal could happen under ANY incompetent leadership. What really gives it that Trump era derangement, given the above:
...Still, although that swift departure suggests a potentially serious violation, reports indicate that Mr McEntee will now assume a new role in the President's 2020 campaign....

Comments:
You can get fired from Trump's white house over a security issue?
The Titanic didn't have this much staff turnover.
Just think, sooner or later Trump will have fired everybody and you or I might have a brief stint working at the White House.
sounds like he knows something.....on the payroll to keep quiet
Kaitlan Collins (Covering the White House for CNN)
‏Verified account @kaitlancollins

NEWS: Johnny 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 tells CNN.

This source says the charges are not Trump related.
"financial crimes" - Irony.
