Happy trails and fare-thee-well to Melissa McCarthy impersonator Sean Spicer. Regarding incoming communications director Anthony Scaramucci:

Quote:
Trump has been pushing for Scaramucci to come in for a while, according to a source familiar with the decision.

Since the communications director job was open, he would install Scaramucci in that role. This source added that Spicer worried Scaramucci wouldn't know Washington and that it would fall to Spicer to do both jobs, which he considered to be untenable.
That's right - ol' Sean was apparently concerned that SOMEONE ELSE might turn out to be a Washington-illiterate fuck up.

I love that Trump admitted he didn't know what that phrase even meant and everyone just nodded like "yeah, we know."

Someone needs to get Trump under oath, it really doesn't matter about what, since he's incapable of not lying.

If the Fox News folks wanted to make Trump follow a liberal agenda, they probably could get him to do it.

They can defend Trump on the Russia stuff, and then segue into how the ACA is really a Republican idea and we should expand it and Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are betraying Trump, etc. etc. Trump would tweet out how it's unfair Obama gets credit for Republican ideas and we need more ACA, not less - except this time we'll do it right because Trump is better than Obama.

How many people on this message board actually consider themselves communists, anyway? Lots of socialists or anarchists, but the only person here I can think of who's identified as a communist is Caligulette, who hasn't posted in awhile, sadly. (And I don't believe she's ever advocated a Soviet-style system, either.)

I saw a good piece a few days ago about how this administration, for all that it complains about the "fake news media", is to historically unprecedented extents a creation of the media. Nearly everything it does seems calculated in terms of media response. I wish I'd saved the link.

(There have also, of course, been pieces written about how Fox & Friends seems like interactive television for a specific four-year-old, namely the president*. I apologise to four-year-olds everywhere for the libellous comparison.)
