Trump Insists White House Is Running Very Smoothly, Then Gets Hit With Resignations Galore

We could talk no end about how unconventional President Donald Trump is in every conceivable way, not least his incredibly high turnover rate in the White House. Less than two years into his presidency and he has already reached record levels with the sheer number of people he has fired or who have quit on him from his administration.

Not to worry, though, because he recently put out an angry tweet that contained the words “FAKE NEWS MEDIA” in all caps. So that obviously means case closed.

Since the midterm elections, there has been an especially high level of turmoil in the White House, as you might expect. But Trump insists that the facts have been misrepresented and conveyed inaccurately by the Fake News Media just to smear him. Here’s what he had to say:

“The White House is running very smoothly and the results for our Nation are obviously very good. We are the envy of the world. But anytime I even think about making changes, the FAKE NEWS MEDIA goes crazy, always seeking to make us look as bad as possible! Very dishonest!”

The statement (which, of course, was released on Twitter) curiously made no mention of the very high profile firing of his Attorney General Jeff Sessions immediately after the midterms, nor his replacement with someone with an extremely dodgy history who has been called “unconstitutional”.

He also failed to mention the extraordinary intervention of the First Lady in White House politics, leading to the ‘reassignment’ of a senior foreign policy aide and national security adviser, nor the departure of Nikki Haley, Envoy to the United Nations, previously thought to be one of the most prominent Trump loyalists. And that’s all in very recent memory.

What’s more, there’s no reason to think it will stop there. Trump has been dropping not at all subtle hints about which senior officials he might be planning on randomly firing next for weeks now. For instance, he recently dropped a clanger suggesting he was tiring of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Other officials who could be under threat include Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. And those are just the ones that have been leaked or discussed publicy.

As well as all that, the President has still not appointed a permanent replacement for Scott Pruitt, former administrator of the Environmental Proection Agency, who was fired this summer. Nor has he selected a replacement for Nikki Haley. The chaos never ends.
