Something new happens is the White House every couple of days. Someone resigns; someone is moved into a different area; Trump gets up off of the couch; Reince Priebus loses the lock on Trump’s phone; as Rosanne Rosanadana used to say; “it’s always somethin.” Sunday the White House daily schedule was released, but Sean Spicer’s name was not on the list. Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be giving the daily press briefings. The news services are asking: “Where in the world is Spicey?”
The word from Sanders is that he has “taken on extra duties.” Really? It has been known for a long time that Trump was not happy with the creativity of lies he was disseminating to the press. He thought he should be better at his deplorable job.
One possibility is that he is replacing Mike Dubke, the communications director who resigned last week. Whatever the truth is, we will have one less reason to find laughter at the expense of the White House staff.
The truth is that reports of a tumultuous environment in the White House have prevented multiple individuals from accepting usually coveted positions. As of last count, Trump has failed to fill more than 1,000 necessary positions, including a director for FEMA. With the hurricane season fast approaching, this alone could prove disastrous for states which supported Trump in his election bid.
Trump’s weak temperament has forced him to throw tantrums frequently, and has created very unpleasant working conditions in the West Wing.
When Saturday Night Live returns for its new season, who will be left to parody? Will Melissa McCarthy have a podium to push around?
Please re-post; thank you.
