White House staffers are scrambling to find ‘a way out’ of the Trump admin — but nobody wants to hire them

Published

on

The atmosphere inside President Donald Trump’s White House is darker than ever — and many staffers are trying to finagle exit plans amid a job market that doesn’t want them.

Sources that spoke to BuzzFeed News claim “many mid- and low-level staffers are anxious to leave and are actively looking for jobs elsewhere,” and viewed the abrupt resignation of White House communications director Hope Hicks as a “tipping point.”

But one former Trump administration official said the job market for ex-White House staffers just isn’t what it used to be.

“I’ve talked to several people in the last week trying to find a way out, but they can’t get out because no one is really hiring people with Trump White House experience,” the source told BuzzFeed. “Not a fun time to say the least.”

He also admitted that “things are still pretty bleak” inside the administration that’s been wracked with even more scandal than usual.

Another source close to the White House said he’s spoken to people still within the administration about finding jobs on the outside.

“The White House has lost Hope,” the source told BuzzFeed, making a pun about Hicks’ departure. “That about says it all, right?”

The number three Senate Republican, meanwhile, responded to Trump’s series of bizarre comments on over the past few days about guns and tariffs by calling them “wild.” On Wednesday, Trump stunned Democrats and Republicans alike by saying he would like to see police “take the guns first, go through due process second” to prevent mass shootings, and followed the strange remark up on Thursday by announcing he plans to impose tariffs on aluminum and steel.

“You saw it, right? It was wild,” Sen. John Thune (R-SD) said. “I just I think the president’s going to have to narrow his list of issues that he would like to see addressed and figure out … what’s realistic.”

‘Absolute immunity:’ Kayleigh McEnany claims Trump has monarch-like powers despite Supreme Court ruling

Published

on

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday said that President Donald Trump continues to believe that he has "absolute immunity" from prosecution despite a Supreme Court ruling that said otherwise.

At a White House briefing, McEnany argued that a high court ruling which gives prosecutors the right to subpoena Trump's financial records is actually a "win for the president."

"The president was making general point about deference and on the principal of absolute immunity," she explained. "He believes there should have been more deference [to him by the court]."

Trump’s is appealing to an electorate that is ‘dissolving before his eyes’: columnist

Writing in The Atlantic this Thursday, Ronald Brownstein says that Donald Trump is running for reelection for an America that "no longer exists."

"Trump in recent weeks has repeatedly reprised two of Richard Nixon’s most memorable rallying cries, promising to deliver 'law and order' for the 'silent majority,'" Brownstein writes. "But in almost every meaningful way, America today is a radically different country than it was when Nixon rode those arguments to win the presidency in 1968 amid widespread anti-war protests, massive civil unrest following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., white flight from major cities, and rising crime rates. Trump’s attempt to emulate that strategy may only prove how much the country has changed since it succeeded."

Trump is a friendless ‘psychopath’ who now sees Kavanaugh and Gorsuch as enemies: Art of the Deal ghostwriter

Published

on

Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were nominated by Donald Trump, voted with the majority on Thursday against the president. Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter behind “Trump: The Art of the Deal,” says that the president now views the two Supreme Court justices as his enemies.

“The psychopathy is why he does what he does,” Schwartz told CNN. “He has no conscience and so breaking the law for him is no big deal.”

The Supreme Court rejected claims by Trump's attorneys that the president enjoyed absolute immunity, but the rulings may still allow him to keep his financial records secret until after the November election.
