Likewise. He probably thought he could tame Trump.

I go with Carson - that $31k china set could doom him.

McMaster, then Kelly, then Sessions. The other ones could go in any order.

Lots of rumors - perhaps being floated by the White House - that Trump's thinking of firing Sessions, appointing Pruitt to AG (where he wouldn't need confirmation), and letting Pruitt "deal" with the Mueller annoyance. :suspicious: There have been a lot of these scenarios floated before... so, may not happen. But, seems like a move he would make, and not much anyone could do about it without passing legislation to protect the special counsel.

Of the 23 cabinet level jobs in the Trump admin, after 14 months, 17 are still in their current jobs, and 19 still with the admin at the cabinet level. Only 4, Reince Pubis, Tom Price, Rex Tillerson & David Shulkin are gone. That doesn’t seem to be that high a turnover rate. How does that compare to prior administrations?

Sec.of DOHS: Gen. John Kelly- Moved to Chief of Staff. Replaced by Kirstjen Nielsen.
Sec Def: Gen James Mattis
Sec. of Transportation: Elaine Chao
Sec. of State: Rex Tillerson- GONE after 14 months.
Sec. of Education: Betsy DeVos.
Attorney Gen: Jeff Sessions.
Sec. of HHS: Tom Price- GONE after 8 months. Replaced by Alex Azar.
Sec. of the Treasury: Steven Mnuchin
Sec. of VA: David Shulkin- GONE after 14 months.
Sec. of Commerce: Wilbur Ross
Sec. of Interior: Ryan Zinke
Sec. of HUD: Dr. Ben Carson
Sec. of Energy: Rick Perry
Sec. of Agriculture: Sonny Perdue
Sec. of Labor: Alexander Acosta

Cabinet Level

DeVos and Carson are skating on thin ice. That Lesley Stahl interview with DeVos was brutal. Cringeworthy, even.

Oh, and BDK made a funny. Reince Pubis? :lol: Priebus.

And before someone says I forgot the Nat Security Advisor, I did’t. I assumed the NSA would be considered a cabinet level position, but the sources I found that listed cabinet level positions didn’t include the NSA.

Yeah, and which is a more consequential position? NSA or HUD?

Looking just at the cabinets doesnt exactly paint a complete picture. :lol:

In terms of foreign policy? They are both interventionists to the hilt.

Or is there some reason John Bolton is "turrible" not related to foreign policy? Because that's his bailiwick.

That was my point, thank you.

At least Bolton is honest about it.

President Trump’s announcement Thursday afternoon that he was replacing national security adviser H.R. McMaster with former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton reportedly ruined White House aides' plans to announce multiple administration departures at once.

Politico reported that White House chief of staff John Kelly and other senior aides were waiting for potentially bruising inspector general reports on Veteran Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson.

He might as well fire all of them and get it over with.
