Trump Regime

“He’s like a kid”

The notion that Trump has not fired his chief of staff Mick Mulvaney ahead of his impeachment because Mulvaney 'knows too much' is evidently true as Politico reports that Mulvaney will be leaving the White House in a matter of weeks.

Even though he's still Trump's chief of staff, Mulvaney has reportedly been shut out of almost everything and he will be escorted away as soon as the Senate's short-lived impeachment trial is over.

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is widely expected to leave his current position once the Senate wraps up its impeachment trial and the intense scrutiny of the West Wing settles down, according to five aides and confidants to President Donald Trump. [...]

Lately, he has been left out of major personnel and policy decisions, and he is not driving the strategy on impeachment even though he occupies what is historically the most powerful job in the West Wing.

“He is there. I’ll leave it at that,” said a Republican close to the White House when asked about Mulvaney’s status. “He’s like a kid. His role at the dinner table is to be seen and not heard.

Mick Mulvaney and his fellow members of the Flying Monkey Caucaus once breathed fire if President Obama even looked in their direction and now one of the caucus's co-founders has been reduced to the kiddie table.

There's no current reporting that says he's definitely taking the job, but it appears that fellow Batshit Caucus co-founder and former chairman Mark Meadows could be taking Mulvaney's job. Politico reports that Meadows has been hanging out around the White House in recent weeks and Meadows just announced that he won't run for reelection.

It's truly remarkable how the loudest opposition voices of the Obama-era became the ultimate boot-lickers of the Trump era. And you know what Meadows is going to learn that Mulvaney undoubtedly has?

Everyone who works with Trump is eventually humiliated. And I can hardly wait.

    This has merely proven without a doubt that these people are incapable of learning – from either the past or the present. There continuously is a revolving door of sycophants ready to take a position and then throw themselves on the pyre at their Dark Lord and Master’s request. None of them seem to question the wisdom of this or grow a spine. Like the hydra of legend, one of them gets chopped off and a new one grows back.

    “Remarkable.”

    You’re being sarcastic, right? Just checking.

    Mick Mulvaney took the job knowing that for Donald Trump, loyalty flows upward and never downward. He was going to be the fall guy at some point, because that’s the way Trump operates.

    Mark Meadows, if he is indeed given the job, will, at some point, prove to be just as conspicuously incompetent—or plain unlucky—as Mulvaney and will, shortly thereafter, find himself unceremoniously turfed out.

    I still say the next Acting Chief of Staff will either be one of Trump’s kids or Trump himself.
