Trump destroyed new chief of staff Mick Mulvaney: ‘You just f*cked it all up’

Published

on

Former chief of staff John Kelly has been gone for a little over one month and already new “acting” chief of staff Mick Mulvaney is reportedly hacking off the president.

Axios reported Sunday that Mulvaney got quite the dressing-down from President Donald Trump, who blamed him for misshandling the shutdown talks.

In an awkward scene in front of Congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle, Mulvaney attempted to negotiate the dollars for the wall on a sum both parties could agree.

“If Dems weren’t OK with $5.7 [billion] and the president wasn’t OK with $1.3 [the Democratic offer] … he was trying to say we should find a middle ground,” one source told Axios.

Trump cut him off, the source said. “You just f*cked it all up, Mick.”

The source called it “kind of weird,” noting it seemed Trump was annoyed with Mulvaney.

“As a negotiator, Trump was resetting,” the source said. “Mick was not reading the room or the president.”

White House officials called it “exaggerated” and alleged the two men “joked” about it after the fact.

"Gloom settling on Democrats as they realize they’ve taken their best kill shot & missed. Dems in despair. Republicans United. @realDonaldTrump survives & #Impeachment all over but the shouting," said Rivera, hopefully not literally saying that Democrats wanted to shoot or kill the president.

Lockhart responded to the comment by mocking the Fox News host, saying that he was only making the comment to help get his contract renewed.

Published

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) is one of the handful of members of Congress who have served as managers for President Donald Trump's impeachment trial. He has not only navigated the past week of the trial, but he conducted the first major hearing.

After the New York Times revealed key facts from former national security adviser John Bolton's upcoming book, Schiff said that it was clear the information Bolton has is why Trump blocked him from testifying.

“I think you have to for the sake of the office,” Trump told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham when she asked if he would block Bolton.
