Trump’s “everything’s fine” act is starting to really fall apart. As he continues to maintain that his White House is a bastion of calm and thoughtful resolve, people are jumping ship faster than the staff on the Titanic.
Now, it’s become clear that not only is Trump well aware of the discord, but he’s sowing it himself.
Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who famously flamed our at the position after only 10 days, has been going on cable news shows and trash talking current (for now) White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
He’s blamed Kelly for the “terrible morale” in the White House and gone so far as to call him “General Jackass” on the air.
A source close to the President says that Trump is well aware of what Scaramucci’s saying on the air and that he even encourages it.
“I like conflict. I like having two people with two points of view,” Trump said Tuesday during a news conference. “I like watching it, I like seeing it.”
He seems to think the White House exists purely for the purpose of being his personal reality TV show and he’s executive producing the whole thing. He’d better figure out how to recast or this thing’s getting cancelled.
