Priebus, of course, could not accept that. And so he resigned.
This is exactly what Trump wanted.
Nope! Remember, Trump keeps saying he trusts Anthony's judgment, he's letting him call his own shots.
BUT WAIT! A HERO COMES TO THE RESCUE TO SAVE THE DAY!
Gen. John Kelly comes in as the new Chief of Staff, and almost on his FIRST DAY on the job, calls Scaramucci in and FIRES HIM.
Then 2 weeks later, after Kelly is brought in. "John is calling his own shots. I trust his judgment. He made this call to let Anthony go."
That's what they're supposed to see.
You know how you know the hatchet man strategy worked?
He takes all the ill will with him when he goes. Everybody LOVES the boss & the new guys who came in cuz of Hatchet Man.
So when Trump runs a brief disinformation sting by bringing in a hatchet man to fire people for him & bring in new staff. they don't see what's occurring.
It worked beautifully. And it demonstrates some things about Trump and his team.
How'd that work out for both Bushes, Reagan?
How'd they respond?
By constantly investing their time & resources into STOPPING him now that he'd tipped them off what he was trying to do.
Far from explaining what he's really trying to do, Trump gives them 1 cover story after another that fits their worst biases about himself.
Right now, there are other cover stories in play to fool Dems & DNC Media and keep them out of Trump & his team's way while they accomplish their goals.
Far from trying to thwart this investigation, they'd leave it alone.
Because I watched them FLAWLESSLY pull off smaller, shorter ones already. Done so well, nobody in the media ever caught on.
