Trump Administration* - Fired / Quit

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Sarah Sanders for Governor of Arkansas? Trump Urges Press Secretary to Run After White House Exit

Makes sense, it's not like she had any dignity left to preserve by ditching POSPOTUS.

Get out the violins and the guy that plays "Taps" on the bugle. Another one hits the road, Jack. This guy is maybe second shortest serving after The Mooch; not sure, don't care.

U.S. EPA senior official falls short of calling climate change a crisis

We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy - sun, wind and tide.... I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.

Admiral who was to become Navy's top officer to retire instead, citing bad judgment

"bad judgment" applies to everyone that agrees to work under POSPOTUS.

Ah, the headline could also be interpreted as it would be bad judgement to become CNO for trump; the Admiral is probably thinking it would also be bad juju to work for trump in that he may be asked to do "crazy shit" like McGhan was asked to do. Hell, nobody wants to do crazy shit except maybe trump and his family. Also, the Admiral could not take the thought of himself being referred to by Don Jr. as 'the C and O." It was just too much.

:lol: exactly. I look for Acosta to be next, especially if the FL state attorney office keeps up with their assertion of Acosta's revisionist account of the Epstein case. Unless of course that wingnut Bondi woman is still FL Attorney General. I don't know if she is.......she isn't, but a new Republican took her place this year. Her husband is a DEA agent.

Makes more sense than when the huckleberry moron said that he would appoint chuck norris as Secretary of Defense.
