In other news, a federal judge has struck down Alabama's insane anti-abortion law that allowed lawyers to represent fetuses. Yes, that was a real thing.
Meanwhile, a British prankster apparently tricked Anthony Scaramucci into thinking he was arguing with Reince Priebus on the internet.
Finally, here's a curious anecdote from the AP's profile of Trump's latest chief of staff and former DHS secretary John Kelly and current defense secretary James Mattis:
Mattis and Kelly also agreed in the earliest weeks of Trump's presidency that one of them should remain in the United States at all times to keep tabs on the orders rapidly emerging from the White House, according to a person familiar with the discussions. The official insisted on anonymity in order to discuss the administration's internal dynamics.
It's hard to know what to believe here, but if it's true that they formed this pact, it appears they were legitimately worried that Trump may issue illegal orders or stage an anti-democratic coup of some sort.
If that's the case, why agree to serve in his administration? Well, maybe to stop him. It would be harder to stop him from the outside. Like I said, it's hard to know what to believe. More often than not, they look like enablers.
The Joint Chief's very public decision last week to tell Trump to stuff his anti-transgender tweets seemed to me like an indication that they've had just about enough of him. That's not normal, but neither is Trump.
