Trump’s horsewhip-carrying chief of protocol will resign after intimidating State Department staff: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s chief of protocol plans to step down just ahead of the G-20 summit in Japan, according to Bloomberg News.

Sean Lawler, whose job includes assisting the president in diplomatic talks overseas and with foreign leaders in the White House, faces an investigation from the State Department’s inspector general for intimidating subordinates, including carrying a horsewhip around the office.

The president reportedly did not care for Lawler, at one point asking officials why he still works at the White House.

Mary-Kate Fisher, the assistant chief of protocol, will stand in for Lawler and accompany Trump on the G-20 trip.

Cooper interviewed Steve Cortes about the president's racists outburts at the four young women of color in Congress that are known collectively as "The Squad."

The host read the dictionary definition of a demagogue.

"A leader that makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises to gain power," Merrian-Webster published.

Republicans in Congress are angry about Trump’s latest racist comments — but not because they’re racist

However, as many of them make clear in conversation with reporters, the fact that these comments were racist is not the main reason they are angry at the president. Rather, they are frustrated that his comments are hogging the news cycle, which leaves them incapable of discussing their agenda — and of criticizing the agenda of the Democratic representatives he targeted.
