‘Most insane scenario’: CNN panelist says Trump White House is ‘Survivor meets Apprentice meets Game of Thrones’
CNN panelists noted Monday that the Trump White House resembles a reality TV show now more than ever.
Karine Jean-Pierre, an Obama campaign alumna who went on to work in the 44th president’s White House, said that in her years in the last administration, “there was never this type of drama.”
“[The Trump White House] is Survivor meets The Apprentice meets Game of Thrones,” she said. “It is the most insane scenario that you have.
“You have staff who are stabbing each other in the back, leaking things,” Jean-Pierre continued. “But the problem is, it’s not TV reality. This is real life. They should be governing a country instead of infighting constantly.”
The former White House staffer’s comments came days after CNN host Jake Tapper, who hosted the panel she spoke on Monday, noted that President Donald Trump firing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson via tweet was akin to GoT‘s infamous “Red Wedding” scene.
