Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will replace the Southern elf and either he will shut down the Mueller investigation, starve it by cutting the funding to the minimum, or let it carry on through some sort of "double secret probation" in the Dean Wormer tradition. Literally this is Trump trying to hide from his shady-to-the-ninth-degree past.
And so Sessions joins Steve "Meatsweats" Bannon, Omarosa "They're going to make me a Clue character" Manigault Newman, Reince "Sounds like a type of potato chip" Pribus, Hope "Overload" Hicks, Anthony "My mouth is too big" Scaramucci, Sean "Rage Mode" Spicer, Don "Leaving before this incriminates me" McGann, Chris "Masochist" Christie, Rex "First Secretary of State fired since 1945" Tillerson and a pile of other ex-Whitest House, ex-Federal Government top-level bureaucrats. The Littlest Klansman will probably write his book, like everybody else seems to be, about what a space cadet Trump is as Preznit 45.
Trump can still be nailed on the emoluments (which are an ongoing thing because of his continual income from foreign locations), the inauguration committee shenanigans, etc., as The Atlantic points out.
The Republicans haven't won, they've lost because they let a novice with no legal intelligence become President of the US, which means they get to wipe his butt when he poops and keep him pacified like a baby because his brains are now tapioca. I'd rather do twenty years in the mines at Kolyma then be a nanny to a Grandpaw-Baby, but the White House staff do....and that's why they keep quitting suddenly.
A sockpuppet of Strelnikov, without NOW with the Admin powers of Strelnikov.

This must be part of what happens to great empires on the way down. If I'm not mistaken, two of his sons, his daughter, and her husband are still listed as "official advisors to the president". All still on the Trump Org. payroll as "top level management" as well. They must be delegating a lot of management decisions to someone else. How would any mortal human have the time and energy to work two management-level jobs at once?
What really gets me is the utterly insane amount of crap now being posted on Wikipedia about Trump and his administration. No other US president has EVER had this volume of semi-useful information put up. And listed. Hundreds of articles, mostly useless stubs. Some of it quite shrieky and absurd ("biased" doesn't quite cover this). A fine demonstration of pure Wiki-Autism.
Me, as a completye outsider has the feeling, well, election time is coming soon, is this a right observation? And think the same as the Afganistan peeps, they have seen coming in there house and leaving the house the French, the English, the Russians, the Americans and they all have left again. And the same will happen with this clown. But for you decent Americans I feel often sorry.
I think the election of Donald Trump was more of throwing a wrench in the political machine (i.e. "swamp") that is Washington D.C. There's a great anger in both political parties for not understanding or even wanting to understand the common U.S. citizen's concerns. This anger has been building for a long time and I don't see it going away. If Trump's main constituency is the white, rural, working-class/farmer male, then he is failing his constituency. He's not bringing back the industrial working-class jobs and his trade policies are not helping farmers. Yes, he's tapped into the anger, but he's not bringing in solutions to resolve that anger.

That was what indeed what it seems to me too, protest voting.
We have had someting similar with Pim Fortuyn. A complete clown and frustrated man. A angry man too, he ended up bad. He was shoot down. He has caused years of political instability, with all kind of extreem side effects as for instance Geert Wilders. But now was written in the newspaper the Dutch voter is sick and tired of this big mouth but not any solution politicals and we are returning to the middle of the road.
These idiots are a stone in the water and it need simple time people understand these clowns are no solution, the End. My mother always said America is like the sea, it will wash itself clean and I think she was right. That was in the time of Nixon.
A wise king like we have sounds oldfashion, but gives at least stability. But of course you can't compere a "operetta state" like Holland not with America.
