Now that Donald Trump is no longer even close to functioning as his mental state collapses, we’re getting a clearer sense of who’s actually running his White House. He long ago ran off most of his senior advisers, and he seems to have given up on most of his family members. So who’s pulling the strings at this point? In short, two white supremacists and two idiots.
Trump met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday night and hammered out a firm budget deal. But then Trump was promptly talked out of the deal by two bona fide racists on his staff: White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Giant Forehead Guy Stephen Miller. Kelly proved his racism when he used his prior position as Homeland Security Director to kick as many non-white immigrants out of the country as possible. Miller proves his racism every time he opens his mouth.
Beyond the White Hood twins, there aren’t that many advisers remaining in the building. By now you know the list of all the Trump White House advisers, ranging from bad to very bad, who have been fired or resigned in controversy. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is still very much in the mix, to the point that she’s been caught writing some of his tweets, and at times she appears to be making up policy as she goes during her briefings. She is, of course, an idiot. She’s not the only one.
Donald Trump appears to no longer be taking any advice from his daughter Ivanka Trump or his son-in-law Jared Kushner. He’s also publicly distanced himself from his eldest son Donald Trump Jr after he got caught up in the Russia scandal. That’s left Trump with only one option, and he’s begun routinely sending Eric Trump on Fox News to defend him. Eric is, of course, also an idiot. So with Trump now essentially a pile of Jello, his absentee White House is being run by two white supremacists and two idiots. So much winning!
