"There is no chaos, everyone wants to work at the White House !"
That was Donald Trump on Monday.
In the 413 days of his presidency (and I use the term loosely)
A lot of people have disappeared from the White House.
Now with the dismissal of Andrew McCabe, another one bites the dust!

Remember this is why we pay taxes. It's actually not just so Donald can go to his golf club and play golf all the time.
Rumor has it ( or maybe it's Alex Jones ) when Obama was in office, Christianity was under attack and we couldn't even say Merry Christmas
Everyone was getting abortions whether they were pregnant or not. Men, woman and children!
They came and took all the guns which is a little weird...how did they pull off all those mass shootings then?
Oh right...guns don't kill people.
Maybe it was all because there were just too many people working for the government.
So perhaps Donald and his immediate family is just what we need.
No governing, no experience no plan.
Ya, that should work out just fine...
Oh and if I were you Jeff Sessions I'd watch my back.
The clock is ticking...
Have a wonderful weekend!

...and d'ya think he was really joking about the Chinese president having a good idea about taking permanent office...8~P Yeech... YAM xx
Sessions, McMaster, Kelly, Shulkin, Carson - who'll be next?ReplyDelete
Dang, that's some list Noodle, cats need to take over!ReplyDelete
Musical chairs in high places. That's just what we need. Oh, and no ambassadors to some of the most unsettled regions.ReplyDelete
I wonder when our comander in chief will bite the dust. I sure got my finger cross he doesn't make it a second term...I just wish he would just get bored and leave the office.ReplyDelete
Coffee is on
That's a long list ! PurrsReplyDelete
Yeah, things are crazy and kind of getting a little scary. The clown's gotta go!ReplyDelete
The very idea that one of the most important jobs in the world could be done by someone with ABSOLUTELY ZERO EXPERIENCE was ludicrous, right from the start.ReplyDelete
I didn't realize how many had been let go, I knew it was a lot, but not that many. You look so cute :) XOReplyDelete
WOW I didn't realize it was so many! Scary--and I love that you used the word cavalcade--a word that is seldom used but so lovely!ReplyDelete
Ain't gonna be anybuddy left pretty soon, Noodle. We can only hope.ReplyDelete
It is very simple. We have a dictator and dictators eventually take away all personal freedom in order to keep EVERYTHING under their control. Beware, America. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, personal freedom of choosing your friends, your mate, your vocation, all are under scrutiny by this administration. He is a madman.ReplyDelete
My Mom predicted today that Stormy is going to be Trump's karma........she is interviewing with Anderson Cooper next week. My mother seems to think that soon we will watch Trump being taken away in handcuffs, we can only hope catchatwithcarenandcodyReplyDelete

The list of the Trump's chaos firings and resignations is long. The McCabe firing just hours before he retired is the meanest petty one yet. The list of bad acts lengthens nearly every day.ReplyDelete
We wonder where the tipping point among the Republicans comes... We susect it is approaching. The sooner the better.
