07.31.17 Anthony Scaramucci RESIGNS as White House Communications Director Comes less than a week after hiring
JULY 31, 2017 Washington, DC (ABC/WBEN) Anthony Scaramucci resigns as White House Communications Director.
This comes the same day John Kelly was sworn in as Chief of Staff. Sources tell ABC Scaramucci resigned, asking to be redeployed at the Export Import Bank as chief strategy officer.
Scaramucci had not been on the job less than a week. It may be most memorable for an expletive-laden conversation with a New Yorker reporter that disparaged other members of the Trump team.
SO strange...a friend of mine on Facebook runs the Warren William fan site!
Mooch came in, did the job, and is gone. Think hitman.
But I digress.
Understatement of the year. LOL
I will simply say that Trump’s hold on power is more tenuous than we would like to think. He is surrounded by a sea of resentful and crafty enemies and he needs to run a tight ship. That is how you win battles.
FWIW I supported Trump and donated heavily to his campaign. Yet I feel no need to rant at those who dare to sincerely question some of his decisions. Constructive criticism is a healthy thing. Nobody is perfect.
Thank you for the reply. Yes, the “palace intrigue” may be a bit exaggerated and/or overblown, but you know the old saying: Perception is reality.
When Bill Clinton came into office the WH was in disarray for quite awhile until David Gergen (a Republican at the time) was brought in to restore order. In that case, Clinton’s early days were not very productive until things settled down.
I hope Kelly is able to keep the perception from becoming a harmful reality. He’s a strong leader and should make a good Chief of Staff. Like him or not, Gergen was good in his job. But IMO the best model for a great CoS is Jim Baker (1981-1985).
This was a terrible decision and all of this make the president look weak. That said this is all theater for the ugly.
Trump's Whitehouse might be a bit of a mess but the nation during a hot summer isn't boiling over in fact Trump's America is starting to beep bop along as Trumps optimism pushes back the Obama depression.
The republican in Congress need to be brought to heel all this jackassry in the Whitehouse isn't helping.
Don't forget Mama and Prison.
My ex wife ran over my dawg in in my sixty four half ton pick up
as I was pukin by the side of the road
Been Sippin a Tennessee Bourbon at the DoNuthin FlyOver bar
Was a hard time breakin mama outta prison
given twenty years for wavin Old Glory at the Bundy ranch where the BLM left some scars
and the snowflake hippie judge said it was a bridge toooo far...
Okay needs work but I'm off and running now..
Of course. Conversely, gratuitous disparagement is both uncalled for, and effectively aids and abets the Enemy.
Sometimes the distinction between the two is in the eye of the beholder, but sometimes it's more objective than that...
Warren was a marvelous actor and I have yet to see one of his movies that I didn't thoroughly love.
He was in the original version of an O. Henry story ( LADY FOR A DAY ), that was later remade with Bette Davis ( who was fantastic ) but the movie, A POCKET FULL OF MIRACLES, was otherwise mostly miscast. The original was far and away superior in EVERY way.
Groupthink is a dangerous thing that can lead to intolerance. Simply having a different view does not justify unfounded charges of disparagement or aiding an enemy. You may disagree but I believe a vigorous and constructive public dialogue is always preferable to suppressed thought.
Thankfully we have the freedom to openly express our views in this country. Such openness has been a hallmark of our great democracy.
