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.
I am sure he has a cousin or fox news personalities to fill the positions

Bump. Updated. Shulkin becomes the 4th to be gone. After 14 months, I don't think 4 out of 23 is that high. Again, I'd be curious to see how that stacks up to prior admin.

None of the other 18 most recent Presidents had more than 1 Cabinet member leave at this point. :lol:

EPA head. He paid about 1/3 of market rate to live in a DC condo owned by a lobbyist who had clients with matters coming before the EPA. A real dumbazz.

I just read Stephen Miller, who as we know is one of Trump's most influential advisers, is thirty-two.

I'd never looked up his age, but I pegged him as at least 40 (if not older). I'm stunned he's barely older than I am...time has not been good to this Nazi-wannabe.

Same for Sarah Sanders - looks about 10 years older than she is.

My buddy Rhett has been bald since high school.

True story - last year we were meeting our daughters teacher. She walks in, reeking of coffee and cigarettes, and apologized for being late. She had to get her middle schooler to school b/c she missed the bus. She tells us that it's her birthday and she can't believe she's 29. My wife and I were shocked. This woman looked to be in her 40s, easily. :shock: :o

Bald can be fine if it's done right; Miller should just shave the entire thing at this point.

And wtf? Sarah Sanders is 35?

Constant anger with libruls, immigrants, and non-whites can't be helping them out either.

He did once he got to college. The half-moon with a deserted island up top is a bad look for a 19 yr old.

Ha.

I grew the beard partly b/c I look very young for my age. ALthough, the grey hairs are helping me look every bit of my mid-30s. Otherwise, I look like I belong in high school.

People usually peg me at or near my age, and I still get IDed at about 50% of places I go.

And no, I'm not a centrist...I have a few moderate/conservative streaks, but I'm mostly liberal as all here know. Although I'm not sure why you're pointing out I'm not a centrist.
