After Donald Trump went on a firing spree on Tuesday, it’s been revealed that there are more exits from the White House about to take place. Personally, I would have thought Attorney General Jeff Sessions would be the next to go, but sources told CNN’s Jim Sciutto that Trump’s chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser H.R. McMaster may not be with the administration much longer — and that could take place as soon as this week. However, some officials say the shakeup at the White House may take a couple of months. The removals won’t take place until replacements have been chosen.
On Tuesday, the former reality show star abruptly fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Twitter. Then, Trump’s longtime Trump aide John McEntee was escorted off the White House grounds without even being able to collect his belongings first. It was revealed that McEntee “mishandled his taxes” and apparently, Trump didn’t apply extreme vetting once again to his staffers. McEntee is an online gambler, and apparently one in real life, too, as he tied himself to a toxic administration. In a strange move, Trump then rehired McEntee to work on his 2020 re-election campaign. It’s almost as if anyone can roam the halls of the White House: wife beaters, gamblers, reality show stars, etc.
Then, Trump fired the fourth in line to be Secretary of State, Steven Goldstein.
If you ask Trump, there is ‘no chaos’ in his administration, but if you look at that revolving door at the White House, it paints a different picture with an exodus of epic proportions taking place. Meanwhile, Trump is using his Twitter account this morning to yell at Democrats for blocking his nominations. Maybe if he chose ‘the best people’ instead of the worst, that would help. Also, Republicans control the House and the Senate so it’s impossible for Democrats to obstruct his picks.
It’s amateur hour in the White House. Wake me up for the finale, k?
