And speaking of White House Survivors, Preibus is being talked about as a possible candidate to replace Ryan. Right now the only GOP contender in Ryan's district is an open White Supremist who posted a anti Semitic tirade last month on facebook which prompted the head of the Wisconsin GOP to denounce him and say he has no place in the GOP...
This morning there is a scramble to find a respectable candidate for that distreict, and Preibus is among the front runners.

Does Priebus live in that district or is this a carpetbagger's situation?

Have no idea.
But ,to be honest, Carpetbagging in another distreict of state you have been a long term residence of does not carry the stigma of carpetbagging across state borders.

Is there a video of a rat staying around for two years, attempting to steer the ship, eating from the first class pantry, watching everybody else drown and then hopping onto the Carpathia like he owns it?

Seems like ... Trump dressed up as a three year old, throwing cripples over the side as he bullies his way into a lifeboat ... would be more appropriate.

Well if Jeffy Sessions can get one, Pruitt should be able to as well. Wonder if he is that dumb, or that wedded to his job...

Perhaps this thread should reconsider its focus on who is going to be staying on the island, not who is leaving.

He can't fire him at all. Pence was elected. Pence can tell Trump to go screw himself and if something happens to Trump, Pence is President. Other then breaking ties in the Senate, Pence has no purpose whatsoever.
