THE EXODUS FROM THE WHITE HOUSE
On June 2018, we took note of a report that sixty percent of the State Department's highest ranking diplomats have voluntarily left the foreign service. This past week, we expanded the search to include everyone we could still remember being in the Trump administration who for one reason or another has come and gone, beginning with James Comey, head of the FBI and his successor, Andrew McCabe, along with Patrick Kennedy, Undersecretary of State for management and Sally Yates, former Acting Attorney General.
Others whose names immediately come to mind, due to their prominence in the news, include Reince Priebus, once chair of the Republican National Committee and for a brief spell, Trump's Chief of Staff. Then, there is Priebus' one time equal in the President's inner circle, Steve Bannon, Chairman of Trump's 2016 campaign.
Bannon once described the President of being a "two button machine; the 'on button Trump' being full of flattery; the 'off button Trump,' resentful and quick to express anger." Bannon's biggest error: denigrating Trump's son-in -law, Jared Kushner.
Looking at the list of headliners, who've come and gone beginning with Nikki Haley, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nation, John Kelley, Chief of the President's Staff longer than anyone, Rex Tillerson, former head of Exxon, General Jim Mattis, former head of Homeland Security, National Security Advisor General H.R.McMaster and Hope Hicks, White House Communications Director, it would be difficult if not impossible, to assemble a more able team. All gone, but not forgotten.
Before you leave, I was told that many recipients could not read last week's essay, "Trump Trumps Treaty." If you still wish to read it, You'll find a link to it on the Archive of Prior Commentaries below. This was caused by my Mail Server limiting the number of addresses to whom I can now address each mailing.
