According to 2016 election exit polls, only 38% of voters considered Donald Trump qualified to be president. 17% of those who thought him unqualified voted for Trump anyway, perhaps because he promised that as a wealthy businessman, he would be able to hire the best people to advise him.

Trump White House’s Revolving Door Of Staff Changes Expected To Continue In The New Year

The Trump administration’s high staff turnover has been unusual for modern presidencies.


retired House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), to better manage the White House’s political outreach, Axios and The Washington Post reported Thursday. Few Trump officials have deep experience and ties to Capitol Hill.

Kelly has sought to create order among Trump’s coterie of advisers since taking over for his predecessor, Reince Priebus — one of numerous senior White House officials to leave their positions this year under various circumstances.

The latest to leave was adviser and former “The Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman, who disputed the conditions of her departure. Newman said that she resigned after “a candid conversation” with Kelly. Other sources said that Kelly fired her.

The White House did not return a request for comment. Before Christmas, senior administration officials told reporters that it was typical to expect staff departures and changes as Trump approaches the first-year mark of his presidency. They dismissed the frequent resignations and firings, praising Trump and Kelly for having a “well-managed” administration.

Yet Trump’s revolving door of officials and advisers has been unusual for modern presidencies, according to analysis of White House staff turnover from Brookings Institution fellow Kathryn Dunn Tenpas. In the first year of Trump’s presidency, about 34 percent of senior officials have resigned, been fired or reassigned to other roles, she told the Wall Street Journal.

The next highest staff turnover rate in recent administrations was 17 percent, after former President Ronald Reagan’s first year in office in 1981, according to her analysis.

This is pathetic. do they really think people are this stupid? Or are they?

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-approval-poll-offers-no-negative-options/

The joint fundraising committee of President Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee released a three-question "Inaugural Year Approval Poll" that offers readers no option to give a negative assessment of the president's first year in office. The only options for "how would you rate President Trump's first year in office" are "great," "good," "okay" and "other."

A CBS News poll released earlier this month found Mr. Trump had a 36 percent approval rating.

According to a Gallup poll released earlier this week, Obama is the "most admired" man in America, a title he's held for the past 10 years. Of those polled, 17 percent said the former president was their top pick for the most admired person.

Richter sarcastically tweeted, “This is just how innocent people talk.”

During the interview, Trump emphatically said the phrase “No collusion” 16 times and said the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign puts “the country in a very bad position.”

Virtually every Democrat has said there is no collusion. There is no collusion. And even these committees that have been set up. If you look at what’s going on — and in fact, what it’s done is, it’s really angered the base and made the base stronger. My base is stronger than it’s ever been. Great congressmen, in particular, some of the congressmen have been unbelievable in pointing out what a witch hunt the whole thing is. So, I think it’s been proven that there is no collusion.

Trump was just getting started by beating interviewer Michael S. Schmidt over the head with his repetitive catchphrase. When Schmidt asked what Trump’s expectations were regarding Robert Mueller, the interviewer was cut off. “I have no expectation,” Trump said.

I can only tell you that there is absolutely no collusion. Everybody knows it. And you know who knows it better than anybody? The Democrats. They walk around blinking at each other.

Trump believes he will be treated fairly in the case looking into the Russia collusion that he vehemently denies.
Schmidt pressed the subject of Mueller, asking when the Special Counsel would be done with Trump and whether the uncertainty bothered him.

No, it doesn’t bother me because I hope that he’s going to be fair. I think that he’s going to be fair. And based on that [inaudible]. There’s been no collusion.


But I think he’s going to be fair. And if he’s fair — because everybody knows the answer already, Michael. I want you to treat me fairly. O.K.?

Richter has been quite vocal about his opposition to Trump and has taken jabs at him on several occasions. He compared Trump to a genocidal dictator when Washington Post political journalist Chris Cillizza asked, “I ask again though: Why can’t Trump be praised for delivering a good speech full stop?”

God. This is so scary. How can you not believe these two? Isn't Trump aware of these comments by these two? Does he not know that he is being handled? Is he that stupid?

http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/31/politics/b...ssia/index.html

Veteran journalist Carl Bernstein said Sunday that President Donald Trump's lawyers are telling him what he wants to hear about the probe ending soon to prevent Trump from firing Mueller.

"There are many times he has expressed, I'm told by people in the White House, the desire to fire Mueller, the desire to pardon people under investigation including his family," Bernstein, a CNN contributor, told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union." "His lawyers are telling him what he wants to hear -- that's what I'm told -- by lawyers in the White House, they're telling him what he wants to hear to keep him from acting precipitously and to go off and fire Mueller in a rage, or fire (Deputy Attorney General) Rod Rosenstein in a rage. They have an out-of-control client."
Bernstein added: "The President of the United States, in their view, is out of control most of the time, in their view, when it comes to this investigation."


Bernstein's partner of Watergate reporting fame, The Washington Posts' Bob Woodward, appeared alongside him on the program, telling Bash he expects Mueller to leave no stone unturned in the investigation.
"Mueller is going to do this job," The Washington Post's Woodward told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union." "I think some of the Trump lawyers are fantasizing when they think it's going to be over quickly. There is no reason the Mueller operation is going to close up; they're going to want to be thorough."

Trump vs Nixon

Woodward and Bernstein drew parallels between the Trump administration and Nixon administration, which they famously covered during their time together at The Washington Post.
They both said Trump's behavior toward the press is similar to Nixon's during his presidency.

"Nixon in Watergate tried to make the conduct of the press the issue instead of the conduct of the President and the men around him," Bernstein said. "Donald Trump has gone even farther; he's tried to undermine the credibility of the press as a national institution, to the detriment of the country, by these broad attacks on the press."

Woodward defended the press but said that some political commentators haven't been fair in their remarks about the President.
"The tone is a big issue here," he said. "And lots of reporting -- particularly in television commentary -- there's a self righteousness and smugness in people kind of ridiculing the President."

Steve Bannon Tells Michael Wolff: Trump Is ‘Not Going to Make It’
The ex-White House strategist says in ‘Fire and Fury’ that he’s setting the stage for ‘when I am president’ and that the current occupant is toast.

Harry Siegel
01.04.18 1:20 AM ET

“He’s not going to make it,” Steve Bannon says of his old boss Donald Trump.

The former campaign manager and then White House chief strategist, now back at Breitbart, gives the president he takes credit for electing (“I came up with a solution for his broke-dick campaign in about a day”) a one-in-three chance of ending up impeached, of resigning, or of limping through one term before walking away.

Bannon says everyone in the White House thinks of Trump like a child. So this fits right in and makes this so believable.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/someone-spoofed-michael-wolff-apos-080503254.html

A hilarious spoof excerpt purporting to be from Michael Wolff’s new tell-all book about President Donald Trump’s administration has gone viral.

Twitter user @pixelatedboat shared a fake extract, which they joked was from Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, online Thursday night.

The parody paragraphs, below, describe Trump’s (fictitious) frustration at not having “the gorilla channel” available on his White House bedroom television, and his staffers’ subsequent amusing attempt to appease him:

While attempting to discredit Michael Wolff’s controversial new book about the Trump administration, former aide Sebastian Gorka unwittingly confirmed that White House staff were told to cooperate with Wolff. The Trump White House’s pushback against Fire and Fury has largely centered around the president’s claim that he did not give Wolff unlimited access and approval to hang around the West Wing and gather stories. But in a column for The Hill, Gorka revealed that he’d been asked to comply with the author: “When I met Michael Wolff in Reince Priebus’ office, where he was waiting to talk to Steve Bannon, and after I had been told to also speak to him for his book, my attitude was polite but firm: ‘Thanks but no thanks.’”

Before Donald Trump and Steve Bannon were enemies, they were allies. And not long before that, Bannon was part of an effort to sink Trump's presidential hopes -- even if Trump didn't know it. A conservative watchdog group led by Bannon tried to discredit Trump in the early stages of the 2016 Republican presidential primary by shopping a document alleging that Trump had ties to mobsters, according to conservative sources and a copy of the document reviewed by CNN.

The anti-Trump opposition research was the work of author Peter Schweizer for the Government Accountability Institute, which he cofounded with Bannon in 2012. It described years of alleged business connections between Trump companies and organized crime figures, allegations that have circulated among Trump detractors for years.
