Thanks to the @washingtonpost for this:
Just to make this clear, let’s remind ourselves of the top Trump administration officials who have left in disgrace, been credibly accused of corruption or incompetence, or both. Here’s a partial list:
#MichaelFlynn, natl security adviser: On job <1 month b4 resigning; pleaded guilty to lying to #FBI re contacts w/#Russia.
#ReincePriebus, chief of staff: Resigned after 6 mos, comically ineffectual.
#SeanSpicer, press sec: Terrible liar, resigned after 6 mos.
#AnthonyScaramucci, communications director: Lasted 10 days after series of unhelpful media appearances.
#RobPorter, staff sec: Resigned after allegatns of domestic abuse surfaced frm 2 ex-wives.
#StephenBannon, chief strategist: Pushed out after 7 tumultuous mos.
#RonnyJackson, @WhiteHouse MD: Nominated to be sec of VA ; w/drawn after allegatns of unprofess behavior.
#BrendaFitzgerald, dir @CDC : Resigned, caught trading #tobacco stocks.
#ScottPruitt, EPA administrator: Resigned after too many scandals to count.
#TomPrice, secretary of @HHSGov : Resigned after controversy about profligate use of govt & private aircraft.
#SebastianGorka, dep assist to @POTUS: Pushed out when he failed to get a security clearance & no one could figure out what he actually did.
[cont 6] -- you fill in the names
- "When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out," fired
- Nine more, all "resigned"
[cont 7]
Several people forced out, probably because they were too sane, too honest, overly concerned with ethics, or all of the above.
#AngellaReid , @WhiteHouse Usher, too close to the Obamas, booted May 2017.
#MikeDubke @WhiteHouse Communications Dir., here today, gone May 2017.
And SO MANY MORE! (I grow weary...)
