Trumps administration cant clean house because its leader is too soaked in scandal

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/7/11/17546970/trump-pruitt-shine

"The ethical and moral standards inside the White House have dropped so low that even on the way out the door, conservatives are painting the comically corrupt former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt as a martyred hero victimized by the hysterical liberal media.

“I am just so disappointed in the president’s failure to support Scott against the angry attacks from the loony left,” Republican donor Doug Deason told Politico. “Nothing he did amounted to anything big. He was THE most effective Cabinet member by far.“

Presidential administrations are large, and it’s impossible to build one that’s entirely scandal-free. But you can vet people properly, you can drum-out malefactors who slip through the cracks, and you can build an institutional culture in which team members are rewarded for exposing impropriety rather than rewarded for covering it up.

But inside the Donald Trump White House, grifters, abusers, racists, and harassers still get hired; they lurk around the Oval Office after they’ve been found out; and even in the rare instance where they’re forced out, it’s only grudgingly."

4. Biased is fine, if you're right.

 

Tell me more about the brilliant idea to keep detainee families together and give them ankle monitors.

You can cut and paste from this 2015 fox news article if that helps.

11. The parents made that choice to separate their family when they left the house guy.

 

No liberal caterwauling will change that or the color of the sky.

Just gotta learn to live with it bud.

14. Lefty isn't ever ever right, you just like to say that,

then when proven wrong you act like it never happened.

It is why you find yourself where you are.

3. 95 percent of it is leftist/dem/swamp axis generated nonsense...

And pretty much everyone knows it.

You dems put your chips on the wrong numbers and lost.

And now you're reacting to it in the worst, most self destructive ways.

Get on board or get left behind, but you aren't stopping this train, so you may as well just disabuse yourself of the notion now.

15. The economy is quite enough.


The wall can probably wait until the second term. Assuming he has one, of course.

Ya figure if y'all scream and shout enough, that folks will want the obama shit-midas economy back?
