    As Deputy Director......hasn’t she been doing the grunt work anyway? Now she can delegate even more. She just might want to secure all the dirt she can on Trump before he fires her.

    That's the problem though - in her previous position, she was getting actual work done. As Director, she'll spend her time doing circus performances.

    It looks like Germany wants to arrest her. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartanntp

    The way I heard it... Tillerson heard he was fired by way of Trump's tweet (twitter?). Trump is truly lacking in class (among everything else)! Truly a moron!

    What does that make now for changes in people? 25 or 26? Also, read somewhere that he has not even filled posts he was supposed to and has a revolving door with the positions he has filled. Doesn't bode well.

    This is a big deal, if one likes government to function. My understanding is that many organizations are basically ghost towns now, between positions not-yet-appointed and people leaving for greener fields. Talking with some of the agencies I work with, there is a concern that soon nobody will be left who knows how things operate.

    If this continues long enough the President will be reaching deep into his arena of supporters for cabinet positions. Maybe Williamsmith and Alan will be tapped. The
    Donald could do worse.

    I have to say that provided the country survives Trumps first term, I have thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. Too bad it comes at the expense of some people’s sanity. Quit expecting him to act like a President, however that’s supposed to be. Didn’t we lose all dignity in that office a long time ago? Exactly what standards should Trump be living up to? Trump doesn’t take anyone’s advice anyway so he might as well fire them all. It is a damn bloody circus isn’t it? A little awkward.
