Is there a doctor (Ph.D.) in the house?

White House dysfunction is not a laughing matter and should not be treated that way on TV news shows. It's Chaos, Not Comedy.

H.R. McMaster was an “adult in the room” among adults in the room. The national security adviser is decorated war hero and Ph.D-wielding intellectual — one whose dissertation was a treatise on the hazards of allowing a president’s self-interest to override the better judgment of military experts and the diplomatic corps.

After taking the reins from disgraced Turkish government agent Michael Flynn, McMaster evicted his predecessor’s team of crackpot Islamophobes from the National Security Council, and won a war of attrition with Steve Bannon.

Of late, Kushner, McMaster, Cohn, and Sessions are all on the ropes.

McMaster scaled back Kushner’s portfolio but didn’t completely oust him or first daughter Ivanka Trump.

Now, the adult in the playpen is GONE.

General McMaster joins a VERY LONG LIST of people who have either been fired or resigned from the Trump administration.

Trump replaced H.R. McMaster as national security adviser in a move harmonized by choirboys (chief of staff) John Kelly and (Defense Secretary) James Mattis.

Following the arrival of Trump in the White House, the meaning of the words “adult” and “grownup” underwent a remarkable shift. They now refer far more to Kelly, McMaster, Mattis, and (to a lesser extent) Tillerson than the cry baby (Trump).

Trump's lead lawyer Jumps (Trump's sinking ship)

That "John Dowd Resigns as Trump's Lead Lawyer in Special Counsel Inquiry" should NOT come as a surprise to anyone with more than half a brain.

Some reported that President Trump's lead lawyer, John Dowd, resigned on Thursday as his strategy for cooperating with the inquiry grew increasingly at odds with Trump's desire for a complete shutdown of the RussiaGate investigation. Dowd advised against it but it was a do-or-die moment for the barrister.

Good lawyers would not take (of keep) a client like the trumpster in the dumpster. Dowd got out with damp shoes - while he could.

Others reported that John Dowd, had resigned from the President's personal legal team handling the response to the Russia investigation because Dowd, in urging the President to resist attacking people turned out to be a mismatch for Trump’s retarded insistence on belittling and bullying the unfaithful.

Trump's lawyer quit at a high-stakes moment for the president in the Russia probe. Call this “High Stakes Moment” Taj Mahal #2.

His departure comes as Trump has sought new additions to his team dealing with the special counsel investigation.

While you were distracted by President Trump threatening to fight Joe Biden in a septuagenarian slapdown, this happened: John Dowd, a personal attorney to President Trump, resigned!

Kana: のうあるたかつめかくす

Translation: A skilled hawk hides its talons.

"In Japan, someone who uses their talents only when necessary, is thought to have a “hidden coolness” that is highly respected and admired.

You can see this in any of Akira Kurosawa’s old samurai movies’ like Yojimbo (a.k.a. Fistful of Dollars), and on occasions when good guys do not possess this ability to “hide their cards,” they are always cast as the comedic relief, such as the pair in “The Hidden Fortress.”"

and, the comedic relief of Donald Trump.


Koreans (North and South) took it an mental instability.


That is NOT toughness... that is Trump "hyperbole."

Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump consistently broke from political orthodoxy in his effusive praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

His glowing statements on Putin have become central in stoking the suspicion that he and his campaign were somehow connected to Russian interference in the election.

Read about it HERE.

And laugh - comic relief.

DOPE penalty

Well... I think Trump is guilty of smuggling a dope...

into the Whitehouse!

“For Steve Mnuchin and Reince Priebus, he was an ‘idiot,’” reads the book.

“For Gary Cohn, he was ‘dumb as shit.’ For H.R. McMaster he was a ‘dope.’ (!!!) The list went on," Wolff wrote.

McMaster Called Trump ‘Dope’ With The Smarts Of A ‘Kindergartner.’

Trump knows VERY LITTLE outside of bullying. IMO, Trump is a 10¢ thug.

He talks tough - when you give him a dime to call someone that cares to even hear his voice.

Perhaps Trump IS an old fart that wants to share.

But I, for one, am not buying any of it. Not even for a dime.

register to vote

and vote!

If you are half as horrified by the trumpster in the dumpster's inept immaturity as the rest of the western world, CHANGE CONGRESS.

We are past ANOTHER tipping point.

Republicans pushed back against Donald Trump for firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

McCabe shouldn’t have been fired days before he was due to retire in an episode that risks demoralizing and “smearing” agents, said Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

“He should have been allowed to finish through the weekend,” Rubio said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” …two days before he was set to retire after more than two decades with the bureau. “I would’ve certainly done it differently.”

Saturday morning, Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) harshly criticized Trump’s decision to fire former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, adding that he doesn’t think it bodes well for his party.

“Candidly, it looks like retribution and a bit vindictive,” Dent said. “And I think it’s unfortunate. The man said he’s resigning, and on a Friday night before his 50th birthday, he’s fired to take away his pension? I don’t like… this. I really don’t.”

McCabe took on the role during one of the most tumultuous and politically charged periods in F.B.I. history. Mr. McCabe was at the center of the inquiries into both Mrs. Clinton's use of a private email server and the Trump campaign's connections to Russian intelligence officers.

In the Wall Street Journal: This time one year ago, the assumption dominating political coverage was that the only people more stupid than Donald Trump were the deplorables who elected him.

Trump disproved that (WSJ) theory over the weekend.

The bottom line is this:

Your "stable genius" FAKE PRESIDENT will look for a loyalist to polish his boots!

vindictive, not vindicated

'Jeff Sessions' fired McCabe late Friday night, citing reports from the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility and Office of the Inspector General that stated that McCabe improperly disclosed information to a news reporter…" (it was the trumpster in the dumpster, not the Jeff with the heff)

In the statement, released at 9:59 p.m. EST, Sessions said that based on the inspector general’s report and the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, “I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.”

McCabe was expected to retire today, his 50th birthday, when he would have become eligible for retirement benefits. “Sessions’ decision” will likely severely cut or even eliminate those benefits – at least for the time being.

Shortly after midnight (on Saturday morning), about two hours after Sessions issued his statement, Trump Tweeted:

"Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI - A great day for Democracy. Sanctimonious James Comey was his boss and made McCabe look like a choirboy. He knew all about the lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the FBI!"

In response, McCabe released a fiery statement. “I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey.”

McCabe turned over his notes to special counsel Robert Mueller’s team, according to several reports. The revelation came as… John Dowd tried using McCabe’s dismissal as a call to end Mueller’s criminal probe of Trump. The opposite effect is taking shape.

Republican Rep. Charlie Dent (Pa.) said Saturday that firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Friday night looked like a "vindictive" act of Trump.

"I don't like [the] optics of this, & I have to tell you, it looks like the AG may have been browbeaten into this. He's been publicly humiliated by POTUS many times. I don't think this bodes well"

Just how vindictive is the Donald?

While there is a quite a list to choose from, one stands out. In 1999, Donald Trump’s father died. His deceased older brother’s family was cut out of the will. They subsequently sued the Donald because they were once in the will, but claimed the Donald took advantage of his father’s advanced dementia to cut them out.

But that’s not the REALLY vindictive part.
This is: Trump retaliated by withdrawing the medical benefits critical to his older brother’s grandchild.

“I was angry because they sued,” Trump explained in an interview.

What kind of billionaire withdraws the health insurance of an infant with cerebral palsy in a fit of pique?

Being prepared to kill a baby out of vengeance toward their parents… now THAT is an extreme kind of vindictive.

'The White House is in meltdown'

"Here we go again," said Bill Press on NBC News. "Another top Trump advisor fired, resigned, or run out of a job. [This is] one more indication of a White House in complete disarray. Trump can’t attract good people to work for him, perhaps more important, can’t even hold onto the mediocre ones he’s got."

Trump's inability to hire and keep quality people is the most glaring example of the "total meltdown" under "Trump's lack of leadership," he said.
