Real presidents spend a lot of time choosing their closest advisers. The members of their cabinet, Chief of Staff, national security advisers, budget managers, and others are carefully selected based on their experience and talent. This does not apply to the current buffoon in the White House. Apparently, he puts names in a hat and whichever one he pulls out has a job; temporarily.
Trump fails to have a single qualified man or woman on his staff. So, after choosing Mick Mulvaney as his temporary Chief of Staff, and learning about a previous evaluation of himself by the man who will be closest to the president, his anger is unjustified.
Trump asked one trusted adviser: “Did you know [Mulvaney] called me ‘a terrible human being’ back during the campaign?”
The entire quote is even more damaging, but facts are facts.
“Yes, I’m supporting Donald trump. I’m doing it as enthusiastically as I can, given the fact that I think he’s a terrible human being.”
Trump is on his way to his millionaires only club, Mar-a-Lago for 16 days. At midnight last evening Trump shut down the government. He doesn’t care; it’s time to party. F**k the United States of America and the underpaid workers who will have an un-merry Christmas. He is all that is important. What an a**hole.
