The Donald Trump White House is a gong show. The Comey firing and all these neverending Russia allegations are dragging down his entire administration and are surely leading to an early impeachment exit. What’s made it worse has been the hyper-partisanship of his staffers and advisers, and all these attacks on the press and their credibility. That, in turn, is simply adding fuel to all the “Trump Derangement Syndrome” you are seeing in the media nowadays. Basically, all the problems are self-inflicted.
Now, the latest set of rumors circling the swamp in D.C. have to do with the hapless Sean Spicer and whether he will be turfed as press secretary, in the wake of all this disastrous media his boss has been getting lately. Stories have been floating that Kimberly Guilfoyle, of Fox News’s The Five fame, might replace him. The word was that Guilfoyle was up for the press secretary job, but now there are stories that it’s not happening anyway and that the Trump administration doesn’t want her and thinks she is using the White House for herself.
What is interesting is that Guilfoyle’s background isn’t so much the media, but the legal profession! She was a prosecutor for years in the great state of California. (California: worst bar exam in the country etc. etc.) Honestly, though, I don’t know why she would even consider this job. It’s working for Trump, people. Most sane folks would run like hell.
Anyway, this whole story is yet one more distraction for this administration, on top of all the rest of them. No doubt, though, they need a complete re-set with the media, because constantly being at war with them all the time is no way to go.
