Beggars belief-thanks Max:

I guess we misunderstood Donald when he wrote that tweet in 2012.

It was not that 3 in 3 years are too many but that 3 in 3 months is the goal.

After ten days of employment, Scaramucci has been removed from his role as Communications Director.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40782299
Thinking about it; I bet Spicey and Michael Short are happy they resigned so quickly

And a sort of related quote from CNN today
Quote:
We have gone from an America where people watched three networks that provided a uniform view of the world to one where everyone can pick their own channel, message, and now even their own facts.
Who ever thought the US Presidency would become a cross between reality TV and a soap opera?

Now the pattern is set, the next US President will certainly be from the same genre

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

To be honest, who needs a communications director if the boss has a Twitter account and likes to speak through that?

The Russia net keeps on tightening...

I think I'll actually be sad once he's gone. There's no way HRC would have given us this level of entertainment for so long, and Pence is as dull as ditchwater. Enjoy it whilst it lasts guys, not long now.

I completely agree.
A soap opera one can dip into every day with always some startling news.
The only difference is I would have stopped watching a TV series long ago because the story lines are so unbelievable.

There was the size of the inauguration crowd, who won the popular vote all the way down to the firing of Scaramucci!

And always in the background more continuous entertainment from the rolling thunder of the Russian affair, Trump's business affairs and Trump's family!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Now it seems that Donald Trump dictated his son's statement about his meeting with the Russian lawyer (who had represented the FSB (source)) also attended by a former Soviet spy (source).

Trump 'dictated' son's statement on Russian lawyer meeting

If Trump Senior had not been informed about this meeting, as Trump Junior claimed, why would he dictate the statement? But perhaps it's not significant other than to show that Trump Senior wanted to take matters in hand.

Unless Trump Senior went so far as to be considered obstruction of Justice!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Seems we were all wrong about the reason that Scarmucci was fired

Anthony Scaramucci has been fired as White House communications chief after Trump learned he cannot do the fandango.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Don't believe anyone has posted this yet:

New York Post spoofs Trump administration with Survivor cover

We have an ongoing contest in the office: who's next?

We crossed out the ones who have already been axed, and anyone who wants to participate pays $2 and picks the name of the next person to be axed. He/she who wins gets the goodie pot. Then we restart.

Gotta create your own entertainment.
