  1. I’m at a loss as to where to begin to comment on the circus act taking place on Pennsylvania Ave. The RNC Debates were acts I felt couldn’t be topped, but the circus “animals”, with Donald as the Ring Master, is totally on a rampage. We need a lot of tranquilizer darts to calm them down.

    • Kellyanne has lost ALL credibility. Good for CNN for banning her! When all is said and done and she’s looking for her next job, she will find that if you aren’t credible, you’re unemployable.

  2. Like Aaron, I’m at a loss also to add much to what Kurt Eichenwald wrote. There just doesn’t seem to be any way to explain how someone as unfit to serve as Americaa’s president managed to con his way into the Oval Office – but it’s clear that his outright ineptness is starting to take its toll; and we’ve just begun a very long 4 years to come. And it’s not just in policy make is one can see from the Salon article – Trump and his inept crew are just plain inept at virtually everything – even with how to use the facilities.

    I’m just going to post a couple related articles which address the absolute dysfunction that has befallen the White House:

    From Poliitico:

    Trump leans on ‘fake news’ line to combat reports of West Wing dysfunction

    The president appears especially irked by the growing narrative of Bannon as the real power in the White House.

    President Donald Trump on Monday lashed out via Twitter at a series of news reports revealing the turmoil inside the White House, leaning on his crutch of “fake news” as he struggles to control a hardening narrative about a dysfunctional West Wing.

    One of his missives came from Air Force One en route to Tampa, Fla., as Trump panned a New York Times report that detailed the friction inside his administration and its early stumbles.

    Two weeks after an adviser memorably characterized the falsehoods coming from the White House as “alternative facts,” Trump is increasingly turning to his “fake news” line to try to puncture swelling storylines that are unflattering to his nascent presidency and counter the unfounded claims coming out of the White House. That’s despite the fact that not too long ago, Trump’s critics were the ones pushing the “fake
    news” term to describe false reports that proliferated on the internet during the presidential campaign to boost Trump’s candidacy.

    From Salon:

    Donald Trump’s White House is plagued with dysfunction: reports

    President Donald Trump is not having an easy time adjusting to the White House.

    Trump and his aides are frustrated by everything from figuring out how to use
    the cabinet room’s light switches to not letting the constant anti-Trump protests bother them, according to a report by The New York Times on Sunday. The article, which interviewed “dozens of government officials, congressional aides, former staff members and other observers of the new administration,” also described how Chief of Staff Reince Priebus is concerned by the growing influence of Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, although that may be somewhat offset by Trump’s reported frustration at
    feeling like he hadn’t been fully apprised of what his executive order allowing Bannon to sit on the National Security Council would entail — indicating that he had not read the executive order before signing it.

    As other reports have also indicated, Trump spends a great deal of time watching television, even installing an updated TV in one of the White House rooms so he can follow the news broadcasts while eating his lunch. At the end of the day, when he isn’t
    exploring the White House, he watches TV in his bathrobe, which combined with his regular TV-watching throughout the day has caused some aides to feel his TV-watching is excessive. Trump also seems to be as concerned with the look of his new White House as its actual policy making, reportedly poring through a list of 17 window covering options for the Oval Office and ordering his staff to arrange as many
    televised events in that room as possible.

    One friend of Trump, Newsmax Media CEO Chris Ruddy, criticized the
    president’s staff, telling The Times, “I personally think that they’re
    missing the big picture here.

  3. I blame Reagan. It was Reagan that started the attack on American public institutions. He is the one who pushed the idea that the government was the problem. Next you got Fox News and it’s endless attacks on Bill Clinton. Between these these two agents of anti government hate speak our countries demise was born. Now we have a president that claims anything that doesn’t make him look good or doesn’t support his twisted view is fake news. Our country is in the most danger it has seen in a hundred and fifty years.
