Despite Donald Trump recently declaring his first few weeks in office as some of the best any president has ever had, those of us who understand reality know that his administration has been an absolute train wreck since the moment he was sworn into office. The only way anyone can actually believe that Trump’s time in office has been incredibly effective and successful is if you’re someone who was gullible enough to actually vote for the idiot.
Though this is what we should expect from someone like Trump, a man who never admits failure and always claims everything he does is the best it’s ever been done.
While most of the country has been distracted by what’s going on in Syria, there have been rather interesting reports indicating some major shakeups that could be coming to the White House. Most notably the removal of Steve Bannon from the National Security Council, and sources saying both he and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus could be on their way out of the administration altogether. If true, that would mark three huge moves in a brand new administration (along with Michael Flynn’s resignation a few weeks back).
These reports also include allegations that some aren’t too thrilled with the roles his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner are playing within the administration.
Clearly these aren’t signs of calm and stability within the White House.
Well, if you listen to Kellyanne Conway, everything is perfectly fine. According to her ramblings, these reports are nothing more than Trump’s critics trying to create distractions from “the success he’s had this week.”
Despite basically dismissing these reports as fabricated attacks, she still defended any possible turmoil as all part of Trump’s business genius and desire to not surround himself with “yes men.”
“Donald Trump as a businessman and certainly as president of the United States surrounds himself with a diverse group of people who are brilliant who have different expertise, who have very strong opinions,” Conway said.
“And this is a man who’s very comfortable receiving different insights and different inputs from people,” she added. “He’s never surrounded himself with a bunch of ‘yes men’ and that strength and diversity of opinions leads to the president having many different inputs.”
Fun Fact: Donald Trump has essentially refused to allow anyone who he felt was critical of him during the campaign as part of his administration — an issue he’s actually battled with Defense Secretary James Mattis over.
But this idea that Trump doesn’t want “yes men” around him is an absolute joke.
Donald J. Trump is the type of person who thinks he’s the smartest person in every room he’s in. While he might listen to some advice, ultimately he wants people to tell him that he’s a genius, an amazing businessman, and that every bit of supposed success he achieves is because of him. As we’ve seen plenty of times since he launched his campaign, he wants to take the credit for anything he feels he can spin in his favor (even if he had nothing to do with it), while blaming anyone and everyone but himself for anything negative.
According to some of these reports, one of the issues that could be leading to Bannon’s departure has to do with the “#PresidentBannon” hashtag used by people suggesting he’s the one pulling Trump’s strings and is the real “president.” This has apparently upset the fragile ego of Trump, someone whose insecurity is unlike anything I’ve ever seen before.
Though I’m not going to pretend for a moment that Conway saying something absurd is shocking. This is a woman who’s easily one of the most ridiculous people in politics. A seemingly soulless political mercenary who’s proven time and time again that she’ll say whatever she needs to say as long as she thinks it’ll benefit her own ambitions.
