You're fired! You quit? Hey, where ya goin'?

More than one in three Trump administration staffers have left the White House in its first year, a pace that far eclipses the rate of departures in the previous five White Houses, according to a study done by Kathryn Dunn Tenpas of the Brookings Institute.
The pace of resignations, firings and other assorted departures from the Trump White House is twice what it was in George W. Bush's first year as president and triple that of Barack Obama's first year in office.
And, it's not just any sorts of departures; a large number of Trump's senior-most staff have left in the first year alone.

7. More like...

a businessman who expects ongoing results. I tend to think he disregards character issues as most executives tend to do. If people are valuable, they use them until their negatives outpace the value. Doesn't surprise me that liberals don't understand how business professionals work.

4. It is hard to fine good help

when you require them to pledge loyalty to you, and you don't have the most stellar history of supporting people under you.

9. An old adage in business...

Hire slow...fire fast...

You do your best and you take your time to find great candidates, but if you make a mistake fire them quick and find someone new. Cow shit doesn't turn into chocolate sundaes if you set it in the sun and wait. It just stinks.

10. The Downside

To all the turnover is that many of those who leave against their will then work to undermine the administration.
Just today Anthony Scaramucci tweeted: "Based on FBI testimony, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly almost certainly knew about credible allegations of domestic abuse against Rob Porter at least six months ago - then recently forced others to lie about that timeline. Inexcusable. Kelly must resign."

The White House ends up looking like its in chaos, who is going to want to work there? A tv show is one thing, running a nation is entirely different.

11. Trump mocked Obama for his turnover rate.

"3 Chief of Staffs in less than 3 years of being President: Part of the reason why @BarackObama can't manage to pass his agenda," Trump wrote in one 2012 tweet.
