Donald Trump: “I hate everyone in the White House! There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!”

Courtesy of Vanity Fair: 

At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.”

In recent days, I spoke with a half dozen prominent Republicans and Trump advisers, and they all describe a White House in crisis as advisers struggle to contain a president who seems to be increasingly unfocused and consumed by dark moods. Trump’s ire is being fueled by his stalled legislative agenda and, to a surprising degree, by his decision last month to back the losing candidate Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican primary. “Alabama was a huge blow to his psyche,” a person close to Trump said. “He saw the cult of personality was broken.”

According to two sources familiar with the conversation, Trump vented to his longtime security chief, Keith Schiller, “I hate everyone in the White House! There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!” (A White House official denies this.) Two senior Republican officials said Chief of Staff John Kelly is miserable in his job and is remaining out of a sense of duty to keep Trump from making some sort of disastrous decision. Today, speculation about Kelly’s future increased after Politico reported that Kelly’s deputy Kirstjen Nielsen is likely to be named Homeland Security Secretary—the theory among some Republicans is that Kelly wanted to give her a soft landing before his departure.

I think a lot of us predicted that Trump would end up hating this job, and would ultimately want to find a way out.

In fact even Steve Bannon thinks that Trump has little chance of surviving his first term: 

Several months ago, according to two sources with knowledge of the conversation, former chief strategist Steve Bannon told Trump that the risk to his presidency wasn’t impeachment, but the 25th Amendment—the provision by which a majority of the Cabinet can vote to remove the president. When Bannon mentioned the 25th Amendment, Trump said, “What’s that?” According to a source, Bannon has told people he thinks Trump has only a 30 percent chance of making it the full term.

However until whatever happens happens, we are left with a very volatile commander-in-chief who is becoming less stable as time goes on.

If the Congress does not do its job, and Trump's handlers walk away in frustration, the consequences could be devastating.

    How a growing Christian movement is seeking to take control of the top sectors of American society

    They have close ties, we found, to conservative U.S. politicians, including Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry and more recently President Donald Trump.

      "It is not focused primarily on building congregations but rather on spreading beliefs and practices through media, conferences and ministry schools.
      It is not so much about proselytizing to unbelievers as it is about transforming society through placing Christian believers in powerful positions in all sectors of society.
      It is organized as a network of independent leaders rather than as formally organized denominations."
      "This includes “extreme” experiences of the supernatural, unorthodox beliefs and practices, and financing as well as marketing techniques that leverage the power of the internet." Most INC Christian groups we studied seek to bring heaven or God’s intended perfect society to Earth by placing “kingdom-minded people” in powerful positions at the top of all sectors of society."

      " “seven mountains of culture.”

      These include business, government, media, arts and entertainment, education, family and religion. In this form of “trickle-down Christianity,” they believe if Christians rise to the top of all seven “mountains,” society will be completely transformed."
      ...society would have biblical MORALity, people would live in harmony, there would be peace and not war, there would be no poverty.”

    WATCH: Louisiana sheriff rages against releasing ‘good’ prisoners because ‘we use them to wash cars’

    ...In a press conference held this week, Prattor said that keeping some of the “good” prisoners in jail was necessary for the prisons to keep functioning because they could provide needed labor that you couldn’t get out of more violent and dangerous prisoners.

    “The [prisoners] that you can work, the ones that can pick up trash, the work release programs — but guess what? Those are the ones that they’re releasing!” Prattor fumed in his attack against criminal justice reforms. “In addition to the bad ones… they’re releasing some good ones that we use every day to wash cars, to change the oil in our cars, to cook in the kitchen… well, they’re going to let them out!”

    He puts a lot of propaganda out there that his people love him but we know different right? He has to force them to love them or he will poison them. I saw a clip where he had actually poisoned a Ukrainian leader and had the gall to smile at him face to face as if he had done nothing. That's cold.

    “He threw a fit,” Trump’s advisers are now saying about him in reference to the Iran nuclear disarmament deal. He was “livid.” He was “furious.” Why? Because he didn’t want to have to allow a deal with President Obama’s name on it to remain intact, and because he didn’t really understand it anyway.

    It is inherent with the job of President that people will disagree on policy and be critical of performance fairly and sometimes unjustly. If Trump has, as speculated by observation of his behaviors, narcissistic personality disorder he would be intolerant of any criticism or facts that would not fulfill his sick need for narcissistic supply. Trump obviously has insatiable sick needs that he Is the best, the smartest, all powerful and divine perfection never making a mistake and he makes all of the rules. Any facts or truth that do not fulfill what he believes he is entitled to enrages him to lash out labeling it fake news and the sources “liars”.

    It is habitual for him to declare he “makes the best deals” then declare Obama, Tillerson or whomever made a “disaster”. In psychology this is called “splitting” claiming a positive polar opposite contrasting, splitting someone or something to a polar opposite extreme negative. In spite of his advisers Trump seeks extremes often condemning, undercutting to humiliating them via Twitter and rallies.

    He was never fit to serve nor be POTUS.

      I think it is great to help military spouses to feel good and become employable. Do these events they constantly put on have much impact? Or is it 85% a production to make the event stars look good and have good PR? That Bonnie Amos is sure a go getter and her husband is a big deal. The top brass like him but he sure is hated. I guess he isn't that honorable and he sounds like a jerk. Not all Marines consider him a leader, not a good leader.


      It gets pretty wierd for some Marines when they call the military spouse "First Lady". She has been annoited and why? Doesn't her work stand on it's own?
      I get why so many hate them. The good news is they are no longer living in the Marine commandant’s house. A historic house for the Marine Corps commandant on Capitol Hill’s Barracks Row, it is like a palace. Made for royalty. The 196,000 active-duty Marines do not live there. It is for Marine royalty like Amos and spouse.

      She looks lazy just hanging out at her house while her husband is always gone and only one kid is 5 or 6 months. She could have been back at work a month or so after birth like other mothers and fathers.

    OT?
    "In mid-August, Ronan Farrow, an NBC News contributor, had secured an interview with a woman who was willing to appear on camera, in silhouette, her identity concealed, and say Harvey Weinstein had raped her, according to four people with close knowledge of the reporting. It was a pivotal moment in a testy, months-long process of reporting a story that had bedeviled a generation of media and Hollywood reporters."NBC tried to put a stop to the interview with the woman accusing Weinstein of rape. The network insisted he not use an NBC News crew for the interview, and neither was he to mention his NBC News affiliation. And so that was how Ronan Farrow wound up paying out of his own pocket for a camera crew to film an interview."12 people inside and outside NBC News with direct knowledge of the reporting behind Farrow’s story suggest a different cause of death. All of the sources who spoke to HuffPost asked not to be named, either because they weren’t authorized to speak to the media about the story or because they were fearful of retribution from NBC News executives."
    "Farrow, who began reporting the story in January and by late July had interviewed at least eight women, some on the record, had been told twice that the story was “reportable,” meaning it had passed the network’s stringent fact checking and legal process, according to four people with detailed knowledge of the process. A separate NBC investigative journalist was also asked to re-report his work, and her review raised no flags," Auletta, after having reviewed Farrow’s reporting, said on camera something along the lines of, “If NBC News sits on this evidence Ronan has, it is a black eye for the organization and a huge scandal.” “Ronan Farrow, who came to us about two months ago, had very serious reporting already accomplished,” said David Remnick, editor in chief of The New Yorker. “And with extremely hard work, and with work with a lot of my colleagues here at The New Yorker, he deepened the piece and made it publishable. And it is something that exemplified great investigative journalism.”

    "That weekend, when “Saturday Night Live” executive producer Lorne Michaels was criticized for not including any Weinstein jokes, he told The Daily Mail that “it’s a New York thing,” suggesting something similar. NBC insiders have told HuffPost that this has led some employees to wonder if this was an internal talking point that NBC executives were using to justify the lack of coverage."The news that NBC had the audio of Weinstein admitting to sexual assault shocked and frustrated NBC News employees who spoke to HuffPost, saying that the mood in the newsroom had grown dark over the missed opportunity to break a big story.

    It reminded several people who spoke to HuffPost of another time that NBC lost the chance to break a story involving a man admitting to alleged sexual misconduct.

    In October 2016, NBC News had the now infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Trump saying he liked to grab women “by the pussy.” While the footage was owned by NBC, it was ultimately published by The Washington Post."
