In politics innocent underlings resign to take the heat off their boss all the time (think Shirley Sherrod).  Porter is not one of those times though.

Hope Hicks is going to feel this one.

Why did he quit? Not like they would have fired him for that since nothing matters anymore.
 
2018-02-07 04:12:26 PM  
Kelly knew about it and wanted him to stay anyway. More evidence that Kelly is a giant piece of shiat.

Porter also was denied security clearance because of this, but handled all the material Trump read. I imagine a large amount of that is classified. Good job guys.

Porter was "in like Flynn".  This means that the White House was pretending it did not know about his career-killing indiscretion, until the damn media told the damn public.

Well, when you have an administration like Trump's you're going to have some self-selection in the hiring pool going on which will skew towards assholes with issues.

Sanders has issued a new statement in which she re-used her earlier sentence about Trump and Kelly having full confidence in Porter. So the president and his chief of staff are now saying they have confidence in a guy who is resigning over domestic violence allegations. WTF?

Focus, people. Focus. The real threat is gays. I'm not sure why, but I'm sure about it. A little heterosexual domestic violence here and there is a small price to pay to make sure we end the danger posed by the gays, whatever that threat may be.
