Trump seems to thinks his failures are all somebody else's fault..

Donald Trump is considering a major purge of his top White House staff as he searches for a "huge reboot" following the most damaging week of his presidential term, political sources in Washington said on Sunday night.

Taken aback by the fallout from his sudden dismissal of James Comey, the FBI director, and on the hunt for someone to blame, the president was said to be toying with firing senior allies, from Reince Priebus, his chief of staff, to Sean Spicer, his combative press secretary.

I think Kellyanne has bowed out saying she's had enough of Trump.

“Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough claimed that White House counselor Kellyanne Conway felt “so dirty” supporting President Trump on their show that she once said she needed to “take a shower,” the Washington Examiner (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/morning-joe-hosts-claim-kellyanne-conway-only-supports-trump-for-the-money/article/2623100) reports.
Said Brzezinski: “She would shill for Trump in extensive fashion and then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off and she would say ‘Blech, I need to take a shower,’ because she disliked her candidate so much.”
Scarborough claimed Conway once said, “I don’t believe in this guy. He’s just my client. It’s just a paycheck… I’m just doing this for the money.”

I guess if you consider both this and his TV Apprentice show, the man does possess one very real talent. He fires people.

Actually he doesn't. If you look at his real business staff he doesn't fire people very often; as a matter of fact there's a real critique of him is that he is to loyal to those he works closest to.

Interesting. Perhaps he feels they have done well for him and he relies on them? The current WH staff has not built up a track record of success to build that loyalty (I guess).

The problem is not firing those who serve but having seemingly competent people able to step into the breach. He has no more friends to hire and those who used to call upon him have distanced themselves... Trump has stalled already on many open federal political appointee spots.

Lonely and secluded can be heartbreaking. He can't even get served by his wife in the WH.

They were all disloyal officers.

Not gonna end well. Achieving this pinnacle isn't great for Mr. Trump's mental health.

So he's going to switch to a bunch of losers who will consent to work for the deranged idiot, eh?

He has to be, they do all the real work. But being president is a very different thing as he's finding out. You can't do deals witHout consulting congress, the SC, and public opinion.

He's going to fire all the people who overheard him telling secrets to his Russian visitors.

In the end, he can't solve his problem by firing other people. He's the problem.

And the people he fires are free to talk.

Not the only one contemplating some faces changing at the White House.

This *is* impeachment grounds, if true.
