‘He hasn’t murdered anybody’: Internet does collective spit-take after Trump declares ‘great day at the White House!’
Donald Trump on Monday reviewed his own White House reality show, after a chaotic two-week period that included three public ousters, the appointment of a new chief of staff, a profanity-laden rant from the former communications director, historic legislative failure and a unilateral ban on transgender people serving in the US military.
A great day at the White House!

“A great day at the White House,” Trump declared, just hours after the abrupt “resignation” of Anthony Scaramucci—who was reportedly escorted off of White House grounds after his dismissal.
Trump’s comment follows similar assurances by the president and his staff that the White House is not in chaos, despite the administration cycling through multiple high-level officials over the past few weeks.
Folks on Twitter were equal parts amused and disgusted by the president’s remark. Read below:
