Is there any reason to suspect or to even hope should would do something that would amount to a grand gesture? I've seen zero indication that she's anything less or more than a xenophobic, prevaricating, paleo.... in short, 100% Trumpette.

No, I can't imagine her being loyal enough to her staff or the nation to do something that principled.

Not technically a White House resignation, but probably WH-related

Trump is having problems finding a new Sec of Defense, with at least wo prominent canidates turning it down. Who can blame them?

Maybe they're hearing him ask if they want to be "Secretary of The Fence".

(did I make that joke already? Never mind, it fits here too)

Working for the current White House has become the epitome of the "career-limiting move".

The rate this shutdown is spiralling the USA into the sewer, the next to be voted off the island will be one of:

1) Mitch "The Turtle" McConnell
2) Mike Pence
3) Donny.

Kushner is taking longer than advertised to fix our relationship with Mexico and China, reform from the ground up the Veteran's bureau and the tax code and bring peace to the Middle East.
Trump should fire him and get someone to get these few things in order.

Who told him to do that?! What a waste of talent! Donny is in deep trouble and needs some handy scapegoats around in the White House to foist blame on. Get Jared back there stat!

The one you are probably thinking.

The job of Keeper of the Royal Stool was to collect the King's #2s and determine by their size, shape, texture, and bouquet, whether the King was still in good health.

Ahh, a well rounded education. There are some really weird jobs that were associated with Royalty in the past, and some are still sort of around, such as the Keeper of the Royal (Queen's) Swans whose job until 1993 was the counting, looking after, and protecting the Swans on the River Thames. In 1993 it was split into two jobs, the Warden of the Royal Swans who is responsible for the annual Swan Upping, which is basically a swan census where they catch and ring all the swans on the river and check out their health, and the Maker of Swans who is responsible for the welfare and health of the swans, educating people, going and seeking out sick birds to get them treated, and rounding them up to clear the river for rowing competitions. What a fun job....

Trump reportedly swore at acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney during a recent meeting with the Democrats.


Quote:
President Donald Trump lashed out at acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney during a Situation Room meeting with Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, earlier this month, a White House official said Sunday.
According to the official, Trump cut Mulvaney off toward the end of an unproductive meeting on re-opening the federal government, as Mulvaney was attempting to negotiate up from the $1.3 billion Democrats offered the White House.
"Stop, stop, just stop -- What are you doing? You're ********** it all up, Mick," Trump said, according to the official who was in the room for the negotiations.

The mistake was probably that he was making a legitimate attempt at negotiation.

"He" as in Mulvaney? Doesn't Mick know Donny is the best negotiator? Look at the deal he struck with the Dems! MUCH better!

And another one bites the dust: RAJ SHAH, senior White House spokesman.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/14/u...ite-house.html
Quote:
Raj Shah, a top spokesman in the White House press office, has left and joined an arm of a Florida-based lobbying firm, officials said Monday.

...

His departure comes as the White House press and communications teams have been depleted. Several aides have moved on to roles at government agencies or have left the Trump administration entirely.
It also probably doesn't help that he is obviously not a 'Murican.

Of course not. He was born in Connecticut.

And worse yet, he graduated from Cornell!
