Trump's Cabinet Ready to Bail

Don't get me wrong. I'm no fan of Jeff Sessions, but Sessions has been Trump's most loyal fan/supporter and he's been getting the shaft for the last couple of days. The tweets are becoming nastier by the hour.

"Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign - "quietly working to boost Clinton." So where is the investigation A.G."
"So why aren't the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?"
"I am disappointed in the attorney general," said Mr Trump. "He should not have recused himself almost immediately on taking office.

"If he was going to do so he should have told me and I would have picked someone else.

"I think it's a bad thing for the presidency, and that's the way I feel."

Anyhoo....now just imagine being one of Trump's OTHER cabinet members...and watching this go down. Here's what the Washington Monthly (Martin Longman) has to say:

I wrote yesterday about the possibility that Rex Tillerson might resign as Secretary of State. He has a list of things heís angry about, but one item is that he doesnít like how Attorney General Jeff Sessions is being treated. If Erick Erickson can be believed, Tillerson isnít the only cabinet member who is displeased with the presidentís attacks on Sessions.

ďIf he can get treated that way, what about the rest of us?Ē one of the Presidentís Cabinet secretaries asked me with both shock and anger in his voice. I am told reports about Rex Tillerson (not who I talked to) are legitimate. He is quite perturbed with the Presidentís treatment of his Attorney General and is ready to quit. Secretary Mattis (also not who I talked to) is also bothered by it. They and other Cabinet members are already frustrated by the slow pace of appointments for their staffs, the vetoes over qualified people for not being sufficiently pro-Trump, and the Senate confirmation pace.

In fact, the Cabinet secretary I talked to raised the issue of the White House staff vetoes over loyalty, blasting the White House staff for blocking qualified people of like mind because they were not pro-Trump and now the President is ready to fire the most loyal of all the Cabinet members. ďItís more of a clusterf**k than you even know,Ē the Cabinet secretary tells me about dealing with the White House on policy. It is not just Tillerson ready to bail.

Washington Monthly | Trump?s Cabinet is ?Ready to Bail?

Andy Borowitz: Sessions Urges Melania to Work Harder on Cyber Bullying

(The Borowitz Report)—Saying that the problem “is far worse than I imagined,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday urged First Lady Melania Trump to intensify her campaign against cyberbullying.
Speaking to reporters from his office at the Justice Department, Sessions said that, whatever Mrs. Trump had done to eliminate the scourge of cyberbullying, “It clearly has not been enough.”
“From my perspective, cyberbullying is very much a growing problem,” he said. “And with every passing day it gets worse and worse.”
Sessions said that, while he understands that Mrs. Trump has many other responsibilities as First Lady, “anything you can do to get cyberbullying to stop will be very much personally appreciated by me.”

“Please help,” he said, his voice quavering.
In an official statement released later in the day, the First Lady said that she had “kind of forgotten” about her campaign to stop cyberbullying but that she would “get right on it.”

I was thinking about this very thing driving home yesterday. tRumps cabinet is filled with people that are anything but lapdogs, yet he expects them to lay down, roll over and give him their absolute, blind loyalty and complete obedience. You don't become a billionaire CEO by being someone else's lapdog. The people tRump has appointed are not going to sit idly by and let him run roughshod over them. They'll tell him to fuck off and then they'll walk.

Sessions was one of the first actual GOP party people to support tRump. If he'll turn on Sessions, he'll turn on them all. They will resign and NO ONE will want to work for him. We could wind up with a completely non-functional government. We could be witnessing the first actual collapse of an administration in our history. That's fucking scary.
Thanks from Clara007

Trump has every right to be disappointed in Sessions. If Sessions was going to recuse himself he should have made that apparent to Trump before taking the job. Although, I am a fan of Sessions and I hope Trump keeps him on.

As much as I dislike Sessions I have to admit he was correct in recusing himself. tRump is an egomaniacal moron that's putting himself above the law.

Sessions was part of the Trump campaign, he has to recuse himself on matters related to the campaign.
I doubt Trump knows anything about ethics and conflicts of interest, but surely someone in his brain trust must be familiar with the concept.
