Trump Administration* - Fired / Quit

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

How many serious financial crimes can a 27 year old commit?

His father is a GOP producer and agent.
University of Connecticut QB.
Production assistant for Fox News.
WH aide.

Seems like the opportunities were there for an ambitious young man. ;) I'll bet that POSPOTUS and his kids (maybe not Tiffany) all committed their first serious financial crimes while they were still in high school.

This is interesting:
"McEntee's younger brother, Zac McEntee, played tennis at the University of Connecticut and currently is a body man for Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin."
Might we get a twofer?

Fired by tweet, from the same 'hero' who would go running into a school firefight.
I would love to see someone like colbert do a serious quest for evidence that trump has ever fired anyone face to face. The man is an unbelievable coward.

White House fires top Tillerson aide

... As undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs, Goldstein was the fourth highest ranking official at the State Department. He was sworn in on December 4.

With Goldstein gone, the State Department has only one permanent undersecretary in place out of six. The other, Undersecretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon, plans to retire when his successor is confirmed. Two additional nominees are pending approval by the senate....

Rex Tillerson heard about his firing via Twitter. Comey heard about his from television.

The one "signature" Trump spiel, the thing that he was sort of known for on his TV show, was firing people. In real life, he's too much of a sissy to even do that.

Come to think of it, the TV show participants were never in the same camera shot at the moment that he uttered, "You're fired." Hmmm.

Next up?
Besieged from within, VA's Shulkin hangs on as support wanes

Senior administration officials say Shulkin is increasingly on thin ice with President Donald Trump after a bruising internal report found ethics violations in connection with the secretary's trip to Europe with his wife last summer....

Also, apparently he wasn't the one deciding whether they'd be fired.

Not surprising to me. Little of what "reality" show participants say and do, at least what we're allowed to see, is unscripted. It's all about what the producers think will boost ratings.

You're a moderator, right? If so, how about editing your first post in this topic with an asterisk after 'Administration' in the title? :D

we missed this guy

"Another official departed the West Wing last week under similar, if less ominous, circumstances. Justin Caporale, first lady Melania Trump’s director of operations, resigned due to issues with his security clearance, according to a source familiar with the matter. A spokesperson for the first lady declined to comment on Caporale’s departure."


and we should all be thankful that our prayers and good thoughts for fox offspring and trump patriot John McEntee were answered by the almighty godtrump

"Despite those issues, McEntee quickly landed on his feet in Trump-world—hired by the president’s re-election campaign. Brad Parscale, the campaign manager, did not respond to questions about McEntee’s hiring."

Hard to tell what's family and what's government and what's just Palin and simple dumbasses, but it appears that Vanessa just quit her position.

Maybe she doesn't want to defect with the rest of them at the North Korean border when Kim Jong-in offers Trump a more appealing deal.

Do you think it's a coincidence that the daughter-in-law of the Grabber in Chief splits when her oldest daughter becomes a tween?

Interesting theory:
This may be a ploy by Jr to give her his assets before he goes to prison.

Ironic that this gets you fired by a casino mogul. Daddy's money? He hasn't had very high paying jobs.
