Trump just tweeted that news stories that HHS Sectrary Azar was out of the loop on the Corona VIrus and was being blamed for the outbreak are "fake news" and he and Pence have every confidence in Azar.
Given the fate of others Administration officials about whom Trump has said that, Azar is dead meat for sure, only question is timing.

Not that this couldn't have been predicted:

Mulvany out as C of Staff; sycophant Mark Meadows is in.

d4m10n 6th March 2020 06:43 PM

Mulvaney, out!

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy! It's a good thing that Trump surrounds himself with only "the best"!

The Great Zaganza 7th March 2020 01:17 AM

Meadows will have a hard time being a greater kissass than Mulvany.
But he is the perfect emissary to Northern Ireland....

Puppycow 7th March 2020 01:40 AM

Reason??

Did Mulveny offend the Mad King?

Puppycow 7th March 2020 01:54 AM

Apparently he had "fallen out of favor" for reasons like coughing during the president's press conference.

According to Wikipedia and the agency itself, Mulvaney is still director of OMB. How does that work when he's in Northern Ireland?

The schadenfreude when a filthy piece of Trumptrash like that disgusting little leprechaun learn that they aren't special and they weren't immune from being the toy the petulant toddler wouldn't grow tired of is exquisite.

d4m10n 8th March 2020 09:06 AM

If you think that was some high-octane schadenfreude just wait until the title of this thread stops being metaphorical.

Trump endorses Sessions' opponent in Alabama Senate primary

He displeased the Mad King. But we already knew that.

The irony is that Sessions was one of the very first Republicans in congress to endorse Trump.

The Great Zaganza 10th March 2020 11:00 PM

With multiple people in the White House exposed to the Coronavirus, the term White House Survivor might revert to its literal meaning...

I got a sick feeling Dr.Fauci might be on Trump's hit list. Yes, Fauci is civil service, but, let'
s face it, if the President wants to get rid of you, he can find a way.

Giordano 11th March 2020 12:40 PM

It may be more like ETTHS: Everything Trump Touches He Slimes.

Of the the many mysteries to me is how anyone considering cozying up to, or working for, Trump cannot know this.

dudalb 11th March 2020 01:04 PM

I remember Bannon saying he was sort of a Thomas Cromwell to Trump;ie, somebody who gains power by doing the King's dirty work.
Too bad Bannon forgot what Henry the Eight ended up doing to Cromwell.

I was going to post the same thing. Dr. Fauci appears competent, confident, and has no problem with contradicting (correcting) many of Trump's false statements. I don't know if he falls under Trump's thumb, but I'm sure he's really pissing him off.

Not exactly a White house departure, but significant regardless...

From: https://www.politico.com/story/2019/...nt-gop-1444836
Rep. Will Hurd of Texas, the only black Republican in the House, won’t seek reelection in 2020... "I have made the decision to not seek reelection for the 23rd Congressional District of Texas..."

Gee, I can't understand why a black republican would have any reservations supporting a party that was headed by Donald "Neo-nazis are fine people" Trump.

I sure hope Bolton is aware right now that when retribution comes looking for who was responsible for aiding and abetting a global pandemic into the USA that all fingers will be pointing at him. And that he is ******** himself.

Trump, on the other hand, won't care a jot if everyone else goes under the bus but him. Even his veep and his family.

I don't get it... She made comments equating coronavirus with impeachment... Why would they suspend her for that? That seems in line with comments made by trump and supporters.

Virus = Impeachment = Hoax

I think FoX lawyers are starting to get worried that they can get sued for causing harm for deliberately spreading misinformation despite knowing the facts.

That's paywalled, here's one at Bloomberg. Looks like she wanted to amplify Trump's original "fake news hoax" reaction but left it a little too late.

Fox Business is fairly independent compared to mainstream Fox News. From what I've seen, though I haven't seen that much. They slammed Trump over Helsinki.

The LA Times one came up for me.

"Coronavirus Impeachment Scam" is just nonsensical. I wonder if what she said would have been OK without that highly misleading graphic.

ETA: Real businesspeople need real business news, even if they are personally conservative. So I think Fox Business distances itself somewhat from Fox News. Different niche.

Read this interview with him and weep

He certainly seems to be trying to make the best of a bad job

NDA or no NDA, I'll bet he is the sort that if Trump fires him, he won't hesitate to go on the talk shows and say, "The man is an idiot." That isn't covered by any NDA.

I could be wrong, though, but I predict he won't be fired. I predict he will be shoved into a corner and ignored.

Craig4 27th March 2020 02:07 AM

And Dr. Fauci is ******. Of course if we lose him, so are we.
