Another member of the Trump team has been ousted, adding yet another name to the long list of departures from a White House that has an unprecedented problem with staff turnover.
John McEntee, Trump’s personal aide, has been fired due to the fact that he’s currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for “serious financial crimes” reports CNN. McEntee joined the Trump team during the campaign and has stayed close to the reality televisions star’s side since.
McEntee was escorted out of the White House yesterday. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has refused to answer questions about the departure and called McEntee’s departure a “personal issue.” The Wall Street Journal adds that he wasn’t even permitted to gather his belongings before he was removed from the premises.
Despite the ongoing investigation and the unavoidable fact that McEntee could be a criminal, the Trump campaign has already announced that he will be joining them as a senior advisor as part of the president’s reelection bid. The move demonstrates once again that Trump and those in his orbit have little if any regard for the law and sympathize with those who choose to break it.
The news comes on the tail of the bombshell announcement earlier today that Trump has fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and intends to replace him with the current CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
The Trump administration is clearly in a state of chaos bordering on outright anarchy. The unstable game show host running things from the Oval Office seems unwilling or unable to impose any kind of order from the top, and it’s spreading throughout the entire government. At this point, one would have to be a complete fool to accept a job working for Trump. Those who do inevitably end up alienated and humiliated by the end.
MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin has been keeping a running list of all the staff that the Trump White House has hemorrhaged and it’s staggering.
