Adventures in Babysitting

In the White House East Room Monday, President Donald Trump held a news conference with the Canadian Prime Minister that was standard and drama-free. But that belied what is going on behind the scenes: a White House in turmoil.

Multiple Trump sources describe aides as worried that on any given day they could get fired because of a leak, or because another White House staffer may be out to get them. In fact, some campaign aides initially upset about not getting jobs inside the White House now say they are relieved to not be involved in what some of their friends call a toxic environment.
As for the White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, sources inside several Trump fiefdoms tell CNN that for now, he is on safe ground -- despite Trump friend, CEO of conservative Newsmax, Chris Ruddy, dissing Priebus this weekend as "weak."

One alliance that appears to be solid right now is that of Priebus and chief White House strategist Steve Bannon.
They have a close working relationship, several administration sources told CNN, and Bannon sees Priebus as a partner.
One source jokingly said Bannon and Priebus are "co-parenting."


Just what every U.S. president needs: Babysitters!!
Then there's the Mad Dog Flynn hot mess. Little Kellyanne (also a babysitter and spin mistress) took front and center announcing Thumper has every confidence in Flynn. An hour later, White House spokesman Sean Spicer said something different.
"The President is evaluating the situation," said Spicer said in a statement.
( I hate it when that happens!) But no worries, because Stephen Miller jumped in to save the day. HOW, you ask?? By focusing on VOTER FRAUD. YEP.
So....resignations, co-parenting, lying,"evaluating" AND the ever popular VOTER fraud. What could possibly go wrong tomorrow?

I love how people like you bitched and moaned about "respecting the office" over the last 8 years. How when people would give Obama pet names you were quick to remind them of his allah given name, and how they should use it. If not for anything at least out of respect of the office. Yet, in no time you are quick to do the very thing that you were so adamantly against them doing. Gosh, there is a word for that...it is at the top of my finger tips. Oh well! It will come to me.
Thanks from Sensible

I've seen this before Clara. It's how all toxic company environments are run.

It's common in the construction industry with high turnover rates.

It's how Trump runs his companies. It's why he has lawsuits against him for invoices he didn't pay subcontractors that did work on his buildings.

It's a culture of corruption. In the case of Trump, one giant ponzi scheme by intimidation, and threat of lawsuit, or ruination through defamation of character, and black listing.

I never read De Princitibus (The Prince) by Niccolo Machiavelli but wish I had. I think reading that book would explain palace intrigue and/or politics.

I couldn't get into it. It should be open source.

I get it. I just find it amusing that as an anarchist I waited until the great shrub was out of office before I took personal shots at him and did the same for O-Bomber and for 8 years, as I watched the democrats morph into the puddle that they have become, they had a constant and viable complain IMO to the conservatives. "You may not like him but he is the POTUS, so you should at least respect the office". They did not even give King Trump a chance to do anything close to the crazy shit the previous two had done before they started in w/ the slander. Sad really.

More reasons to seperate the states.
Thanks from coke

Okay Okay!! I plead guilty to the nicknaming, but come on, Sab, Trump just BEGS for it with every pore of his chubby body. Admit it. I certainly DO respect the Oval Office...and those gold draperies Don has picked out are going to be gorgeous.

So did the great shrub and O-Bomber. Every time they opens their mouths. Yet many people found the ability to restrain themselves where you have not. I think that you, especially should be reminded of this as for some reason or another feel the need to comment on other people's lack of manors from you ivory tower. Glass houses and all.
