the trumpster in the dumpster's white house can be described only in terms of

Trump’s personal lawyer resigns - - President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, will no longer lead the legal team responding to the ongoing Russian investigations.

This news came the day after Trump’s legal team spokesman, Mark Corallo, resigned. It isn't difficult, reading these teal leaves:

Some folks recognize good advice (but not the trumpster in the dumpster) Kasowitz has worked with Trump since the early 2000s, representing the president in the Trump University fraud case. Trump refunded $25 million as a settlement deal for students who paid for worthless Trump University real estate seminar programs. That’s 80¢ on the dollar. YUGE!

Life goes steaming along on the Trumptanic.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer abruptly resigned Friday as pressure mounted from a broadening investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

Spicer quit after Trump named Anthony Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier, as the new White House communications director.

Trump used the occasion to lash out at the media, claiming his administration had “accomplished so much” and been “given credit for so little.”

Spicer’s resignation marked an escalation of tensions within an administration that has seen its legislative agenda falter at the same time it has been buffeted by an investigation into alleged collusion with Russia.

Neither Corallo nor Spicer have so far offered a rationale for their departures, but both step down as Trump wades into ever more perilous legal territory.

Trump aides have floated the idea of pre-emptive presidential pardons and Trump himself has warned investigators not to look into his family finances.

Scaramucci — who took the podium for the first time —dismissed reports of infighting, telling reporters: “I think the White House is on track.”

Trump plunged his White House into fresh crisis when he appeared to take special counsel Robert Mueller to task.

Mueller is examining whether Trump or his aides colluded with Russia’s apparent efforts to help tilt the 2016 presidential election in Trump’s favor. With the investigation apparently extending to financial transactions, US media reported that Trump allies were looking for ways to discredit Mueller’s investigation.

The White House has pointedly refused to rule out the possibility that Trump would fire Mueller — an act that would prompt a political firestorm and perhaps a constitutional crisis.

Trump lost the 2016 popular vote by 2,864,974 votes according to the independent, non-partisan Cook Political Report.

Clinton's final tally: 65,844,610

Trump's final tally: 62,979,636
