It’s awful. And babbling, ignorant psychopaths like you, who use words like “shithole” to describe places they know nothing about personally, should just stay the fukkk out.

You can move but you can't run away from yourself.

It is a long letter so I'm sure Trump didn't read it. If he did he wouldn't understand the implications. My question is whether or not Trump fires Mattis once the fine folks from Fox-n-Friends translates the letter for him.
I guess the answer to my question is yes.

Trump says Mattis to leave by end of year

I laughed at you first post and then laughed again thinking about it when I read about Matis leaving by New Year. I thought the same thing when the first announcement about Mattis was made. I was surprised this guy lasted for so long.

So had any other president had so many people leaving his administration in their whole presidency, not just a couple of years?

Just had lunch with a group of pro-dump pro-build-the-wall family members. Tomorrow I get to spend the day with a whole different group of pro-dumpsters. And they all call themselves christians. I think it's time for Krampus to step in and help clean up the family tree.

So I’m trying to find data for total number of people that have left previous administrations, I’ll get back to you on that, maybe. 8)

I will say that in most presidencies almost one of every cabinet member leaves the administration within an eight year span. For four year presidencies the numbers are I think, quite lower.

This article is one of many that illustrates the magnitude and chaos of the Trump presidency as to people leaving their positions.

You’re Hired! You’re Fired! Yes, the
Turnover at the Top of the Trump
Administration Is … “Unprecedented.”
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/201 ... ation.html
The flurry of changes at the White House and cabinet level is “unprecedented,” according to Max Stier, the president and chief executive of the Partnership for Public Service, a nonprofit organization that specializes in federal government management issues.

“The disruption is highly consequential,” Mr. Stier said. “When you lose a leader, it has a cascade effect throughout the organization.”

A New York Times analysis of 21 top White House and cabinet positions back to President Bill Clinton’s first term shows how unusual the Trump administration’s upheaval was through the first 14 months of a presidency. Nine of these positions had turned over at least once during the Trump administration, compared with three at the same point of the Clinton administration, two under President Barack Obama and one under President George W. Bush.
“If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”
“The Constitution requires a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president of wrongdoing.” R. Mueller

Just informed my better half that I will be absent from this years festivities with her family. Though I do have a good excuse, I will be working late xmas eve and right back at it the day after xmas.

I could barely hold my contempt for them at thanksgiving, I am not about to push it for another day so soon. Thanksgiving brought about a conversation on how if the victims of sexual assault don't inform the authorities immediately it never really happened. It took everything I had to hold back the fact that it's great that the not 1 but 2 different grandsons you have who have been convicted of sexual assault had victims came forward promptly, cause that year and a half the one did in jail and the draining of your sons life savings for legal fees for the other would not be truthful huh. Where are your great grand kids this xmas? Oh wait their daddy is not allowed to have any form of custody because he has "issues".

Yup I can hardly wait for the peace and solitude of a long nap that day.
