None of these personnel changes will make a difference. The one personnel change that really would solve the problem is controlled by that same person, and there's no way in hell the president is going to fire himself.

In contrast, Trump has been complimentary of Kelly, telling reporters he calls him "chief."

I'm not sure how I feel. I hope Kelly can get the White House in order at least for a while. I don't want Trump out too soon. Famous last words, but I want him to damage the Republican brand as much as possible, I want the investigation to have enough time to work, and I want the upcoming elections to be a shiatshow for the GOP.

I bet every waking moment, Kelly wants nothing more than to punch Trump in his fat f*cking face.

No one can control Tump. Not even Kelly. Not even a naked Ivanka.

The supporters are shiat. There's nothing solid about them. When you squeeze shiat, of course it's going to come slipping out.

It's amazing to think that even at this point, if Trump just manages to go a week without praising Hitler or calling someone a coont, the media will still give him the "Trump is being more Presidential now" story.

It would be a hell of a fight, but Trump would still win.

Look. Trump dumped Bannon and hasn't said anything offensive in the past 20 minutes. Can't you see he's more presidential now?
Seriously though, if Trump manages to keep his mouth shut about the events in Boston, his poll numbers will creep up a couple of percentage points

Chef is the other word in German for Führer. Imagine how successful Hitler would have been with a well manged cabinet where amateurs were discouraged from meddling in affairs where they have no expertise.

Agree. Don't bring this parking garage of failure down too soon. The cyclone of ineptitude needs to keep unroofing the trumpster trailer park until it's too late for a Pence pinch hit to divert the destruction of the midterms.

I think you guys are subjecting yourselves to a torturous pipedream. The Republicans will prove themselves adept at divorcing him from party and there are enough cracks in there to do so. Outside shot at someone like Paul Ryan getting burned from staying too close, but I doubt even that.

It's the soft bigotry of low expectations. The expectations for the current president are so low that even a mole digging a tunnel underground could climb over it.

Good luck. Every GOPer I know, save one, believes the media is just making stuff up about Trumperdink, and he's really a great leader who's being sidetracked by unfair investigations.

Also SOROS! and BLM/antifa are spreading propaganda through the fake news.

Kelly might not need to corral him necessarily. Heading off all the dumbsh*ts who think they've got a great idea to share with Donnie is a good step in the right direction. Perhaps sad to say, but minimizing the noise may be the only way to get Donnie to focus. We might even see him read more than a page at a time in his daily briefings.

I've spent the last two days listening to NPR. Not because I wanted to, but because the guy who owns the unit next to where I've been working turned his radio up full blast to NPR... then went home and locked the door. But, I digress. NPR has been treating all the news about anything even tangentially related to the Trump administration as 'very serious news.' In other words, they aren't covering a smoldering trash fire in a flaming dumpster on a train wreck, they're covering a real serious President. Liberal media...

I don't know what Kelly's political beliefs and ideologies are, since he is part of this administration, I doubt they align with mine. However, if he can bring any level of professional conduct to White House operations, I'm okay with that.
 
2017-08-19 01:49:56 PM  
Let's hope he's obsessed, like that guy down at the cd/dvd factory.

At first I was so mortified that the reality clown pussy grabber was elected that I really believed a Pence theocracy would be better (less humiliating, and not good by any measure). Then I started thinking about other countries buffoons and embarrassments and maybe we can survive the "some Nazis are probably fine" idiot.

It helped that the Obamacare repeal didn't go well. And it helps that the buffoons can't seem to do anything right. There's some bad collateral damage with the CSR payments to insurance companies that will destabilize insurance markets and kill people...and apparently those with student loans are farked but the pace of farkery could be much faster with a functioning government.

So I'm coming around the hoping he stays till the midterms. Of course, when he says something completely boorish and shameful I change back to the thought that actual Hitler would be better.

It's the darkest timeline indeed.

Why does it feel like Kelly slapping the sh!at out of a cheeto-faced-buffoon in his first week on the job is entirely within the realm of possibility?

There's some kind of time distortion emanating from Trump, so it's confusing. Kelly's actually beginning his fourth week on the job.

In fairness to the media, going a week without praising Nazis would make Trump more Presidential than he is now, so their stories would be accurate in that case.

Doesn't really matter how much organization and discipline he brings to the administration, the elephant in the room (Trump) will still remain. The moment he does anything to try reeling Trump in will be the moment he's shown the door, or at the very least demoted. I give Kelly about 6 months tops before he either quits or gets shiatcanned.

By firing Bannon, he did actually Make America Great Again to a very small degree. I think economists call that a dead cat bounce.
