Suffice it to say that things aren’t going well today for Donald Trump and his staff inside the White House, after a federal judge quickly intervened against Trump’s executive order banning people from seven Muslim countries. The rogue staffers within the White House, who continue to leak embarrassing things that are being said and done behind the scenes, are now painting a picture of a full scale meltdown.
“POTUS fully overwhelmed after full week on the job. Things spilling over into out of office lives for everyone,” was the first missive this morning from the rogue White House whistleblowers. “POTUS fuming after judge order last night. Suggested having agents to “do it anyway” & ignore order. Preibus said to be at wits end,” they went on to explain. And furthering the earlier talking point about Chief of Staff Reince Priebus already considering resigning over Trump’s erratic behavior, the latest word is that “COS Priebus said to be using appearance on MTP this morning to guide decision to stay or go. Positive panic by many at prospect of his resg.”
After Reince was finished with his television interview, word came that “Priebus calling @MeetThePress interview “disaster.” POTUS appears uncooperative on fixing EO problems, more worried about press coverage.” And Donald Trump’s ongoing series of tweets attacking the New York Times appears to be causing internal strife as well: “POTUS sowing real discord by being more interested in NYT than the work of being POTUS,” adding that Steve Bannon is encouraging Trump to irritate Preibus, Mike Pence, and Paul Ryan.
