The 'Right' is Wrong

There is a pattern beginning to emerge this morning that is coming from the Republican right-wing. They are trying to salvage a President who is "spiraling downward."

First, they want citizens to excuse President Trump's reckless and feckless behavior by blaming it on his spokespersons. They must be kidding.

Surely, Sean Spicer is not a professional political spokesperson. Look at his resume. Equally certain is that Reince Priebus is a competent political leader. Witness Priebus being a survivor in the Republican Party during turbulent times.

Wait a minute, maybe Priebus is part of the problem, the creator of turbulence. His product is also Donald Trump.

Does the lemon law apply to Presidents?

"Right pushes Trump to make staff, press changes
By Jonathan Easley

President Trump’s allies are pushing him to make drastic changes as the White House deals with persistent leaks and a communications strategy they believe has spun out of control. 
There is a broad sense among Trump’s media boosters and early supporters that his staff is failing him, beginning with chief of staff Reince Priebus and extending to press secretary Sean Spicer, whose job security has been the subject of endless speculation.
Now, some of the most influential figures in conservative media are openly auditioning for Spicer’s job, calling for the ouster of communications director Mike Dubke or pushing the White House to fight back against the media by ending press briefings altogether."

He's a lemon.

McMaster told reporters in the White House briefing room Tuesday that Trump’s disclosure to the Russians was “wholly appropriate,” and based on “open source reporting.” The Washington Post’s Greg Jaffe has a good piece on the difficult spot McMaster finds himself in, particularly given that his book, “Dereliction of Duty,” criticizes the generals under president Lyndon Johnson for not standing up to a president who was peddling half-truths in order to keep the war in Vietnam going. “The president was lying, and he expected the Chiefs to lie as well or, at least, to withhold the whole truth,” McMaster wrote. “Although the president should not have placed the Chiefs in that position, the flag officers should not have tolerated it when they had.”
