CNN political commentator Amanda Carpenter took a swipe at the prima donna status of the Trump White House.
During a panel discussion Tuesday, host Jake Tapper cited a Wall Street Journal report that revealed the only people who feel secure in their jobs at the White House are related to the president.
“Last time I checked we didn’t have a royal family, but they sure like to act like it,” Carpenter said. “How hostile of a workplace is this? They treat the people who go to serve them in good faith with such hostility and slam the door on them as they go out.”
She asked what the possible purpose could be for such an action.
“I mean, I really wanted to give Melania [Trump] a fair chance, and I thought she was doing a great job as first lady, until you had that moment with the ‘I just don’t care’ jacket,” she confessed.
Democratic strategist Symone Sanders was floored by the fact that the biggest scandals for Michelle Obama were when she wore a sleeveless dress and told children to eat their vegetables.
Even the host noted he’s not clear how anyone can avoid the first lady “throwing shade on a sitting deputy national security official.”
The panel all agreed that the Trump White House has become more like “Survivor” than an episode of “The Apprentice.”

Condi Rice deflects Trump’s racism by saying slavery was just ‘a number of people being treated badly’
Former National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice on Sunday blamed Democrats for racism after she was asked about President Donald Trump's controversial bigoted statements.
During an interview on CNN, host Fareed Zakaria asked Rice about some of Trump's most racist statements, like telling Democratic congresswomen to "go back" where they came from. And when he said there were good people on "both sides" at a neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville.
"When you hear Trump, this is a repudiation of everything you were trying to do," Zakaria pointed out.
"The president needs to be a lot more careful," Rice agreed. "Race is a very delicate and raw nerve in America. We have the birth defect of slavery, we have the birth defect of a number of people being treated badly."
Rand Paul snaps at Liz Cheney over Iran warmongering and announces plans to help her opponent
Appearing on CNN's "State of the Union" with host Jake Tapper, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) took several shots at Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) over her desire to attack Iran and her defense of departed White House adviser John Bolton.
Asked about his ongoing feud with the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, Paul said the congresswomen is out of touch when it comes to American's taste for war.
“The Iraq War, President Trump has said, was the biggest geopolitical blunder of the last generation," Paul explained. "It destabilized the Middle East and increased the strength of Iran and tipped the balance toward Iran, so really there was nothing good about the Iraq war and Dick Cheney, Liz Cheney and John Bolton still don’t get it. They are still advocating for more regime change in the Middle East.”
‘There are some women who’d beg to differ’: Watch CNN anchor’s epic response to sexism in politics
On Saturday, CNN anchor S.E. Cupp gave a passionate lecture about the sexism female politicians face during political campaigns.
The host read a quote from a "top" advisor to former Vice President Joe Biden.
“I don't know of anybody who has taken as sustained and vitriolic a negative pounding as Biden ...really the most vicious press I think anyone's experienced,” the Biden advisor told Politico.
"Come again? What's that now?" Cupp asked in disbelief.
"I think there are some women who beg to differ," she noted.
