Trump's shrinking West Wing

After a summer of departures by senior officials, none have been replaced, with current staff taking on double roles while other jobs are eliminated altogether.

The problem has been recruiting people to join to a White House where five major investigations – four overseen by congressional committees and one run by special counsel Robert Mueller – are the background static of daily work life, uncomfortable to listen to but hard to tune out.

But staffing up is far down on the list of Trump’s priorities right now. As he heads into an autumn fight on tax reform with a Congress he feels does not respect or fear him, the source close to the president described his mindset, in recent weeks, as “the worst it’s ever been.”

“He feels like this is not what he signed up for, and his accomplishments are being underplayed,” the person added. “He just looks around and says, ‘when is this going to get better.’”

His only accomplishment so far appears to have been to make Nazis brave enough to openly parade on the streets of the US.

If that’s his only accomplishment, then he can look around all he likes but it isn’t going to get better for him. :lol:

It will never get better, he's going to have fierce opposition every day for the next 3.5 years. It won't relent and (hopefully) it'll kill him.

Did he really not notice that Obama also had zero support from the opposition party?
It's like he honestly thinks that calling people Twats on Twitter is going to make getting support from those people easier.

It will just continue to baffle him and give him a reason to moan like a little bitch at his rallies and his fans will lap it up while ironically saying anyone who points out how pathetic he is is a snowflake who can't handle the truth.

Death's too good for the banana split. Needs to do some serious jail time first.

He pardoned a racist so there's that.

That's part of the same accomplishment. Don't give him two credits for the same policy.

It could get better for him, if, say, there's a 9/11-grade terror attack on US soil, or he declares war on North Korea. But that's artificial inflation of his numbers based on fear/wartime patriotism, similar to how the GOP benefited from 9/11 in the 2002 midterms.

I can honestly see him declaring war just to bump his numbers.

Presumably his response to the flooding in Texas and Louisiana will boost those crucial crucial numbers to deter him from killing some people.

Even though he's not really done anything to suggest he even sympathises with those who have lost everything.

They say tax is slavery, not theft. :dread:

I went to Buffalo a few weeks ago on a day trip and it really is stunning what a difference it is to Canada. Everything feels like it's just falling apart there infeastructure wise.

Oh they say tax is theft as well or at least they do on the politics forum and they say it with such conviction it's almost admirable in a "You're strawberry floating off your rocker mate!!" kind of way which to be fair would confuse the hell out of them.

The tax is theft thing comes from Ayn Rand.

What is it with crazy right wingers blaming the weather on the gays? :lol:

If we are going with the theory that God will send floods because of his massive disapproval of an elected political leader, then maybe she should be looking at who has recently taken over as President? A far more credible theory is that the Muslims are right and Allah is pissed off at Trump’s travel ban.

Gods obviously angry that not enough people are playing D&D any more and that's the real reason the climate is changing.
If the government mandated everyone play for 2 hours a day things would go back to normal real fast.
