The first year of President Donald Trump's White House has seen more firings, resignations, and reassignments of top staffers than any other first-year administration in modern history.
His Cabinet turnover exceeds that of any other administration in the last 100 years.

At this point they're all clearing out before they get charged. Not that I blame them.

@cicerone imposter,
On a very serious note, I worry about the morale of the staff working in such a circus like atmosphere. Not for my personal politics but because it crucial the White House remains stable, alert and ready for anything that threatens the country.

I don't know how you can do your best work when the entire day every day is interrupted by tweets, vendettas, fits of pique and wondering if you will have a job or will it go poof without warning. I doubt the staff is given enough time to even sign a 'goodby' card for people who quit, get fired, get replaced or sent into time out.

The kiss of death seems to be Trump stating a name and declaring them to be a great guy, a person of quality, a good good friend, just the best, very loyal, one of the finest, just fine fine quality person and suddenly your lights are punched out.
Some of the recently dumped have told stories about speaking in a friendly fashion to the President by phone then several hours later Trump is tweeting his gratitude for their service and announcing who will be the lucky replacement.

On a very dark note, any current or former White House Aids, Spokesperson, chief of staff or Cabinet member, press secretary who has to appear before a House or Senate committee or be interviewed by special counsel will need to hire a lawyer or several lawyers to guide them thru the investigations or hearings. This can easily run into 6 figures and it comes out of their pockets (there is no such thing as free legal representation.

During Watergate and Iran Contra, Justice department officials/investigators were all over our Agency. It's incredibly unsettling, you'll hear about an employee being called to a conference room and read their rights by Justice officials. Morale plummets, and really good people get disheartened and look for work elsewhere.

I'm thankful I'm retired and no longer subject to the ill will and bad karma these investigations engender. It's probably going to take 10 years for the career employees in the white house to breathe easy again.

@glitterbag,
the hell of it is that it's all of his own doing. His ego is so inflated and sensitive to anything that even hints of "another opinion" that he tweets out of the blue with nonsense and distractions that are borderline paranoia.

Come come now... Clearly, these are just unfortunate souls who couldn't take being so close to the splendor that is Trump... Their poor, fragile minds must just have collapsed, unable to compute his sheer genius and magnificence. But let's be fair. Clearly, as you must agree, Trump is akin to Superman as Superman is akin to us poor mortals: so far above us in competence, strength, and all other virtues, that there just is no one in the United States fit to be a member of his White House...

That is, of course, apart from YOU!

So look at it this way: these plebs are just making space up there to house you, in all your splendid magnificence, so you can help Trump lead us all into the new era of peace, justice, and prosperity for all!

No matter what anyone thinks of this administration or screams "Fake news!" there are two things which are easily verifiable:
  • His tweets and
  • The revolving door
While tweets can be falsified, Twitter's own database is a different animal, shut down from the public. But even if you want to play the game that Twitter is out to get 45, then come back to the revolving door.

One or two people leaving is normal and expected. They get sick or tired or they're offered better $$ elsewhere or there's a personality conflict or their family needs them or the like. Sometimes people are indicted, of course.

But this kind of volume turnover speaks for itself.

@jespah,
Trump doesn't know how to manage any organization if this is an example of his management style. It speaks volumes of his incompetence. When people leave their jobs of their own choice or fired at very high rates, it's a sign that the job isn't worth the poor organization policies in place. The blame goes to the top boss. How he managed any business is a mystery, if this is an example.

He not only is an incompetent bad administrator but clearly he’s not competent mentally.

@Ragman,
Some have claimed he is suffering from dementia, but that's been his mental state every since he came into public view. That he has a history of bigotry and lying should have destroyed him from public view, but there are about 40% of Americans who still support this bigot and liar. Probably, most are older, uneducated men. They admire his wealth that he inherited from daddy, and he declared bankruptcy four times. If that's fiscal competence, we're all geniuses.

Absolutely. When even Trump's lawyers need lawyers, it really is time to GTFO.

“We’re going to be tied up in court for the rest of our lives with this deal,” he added, referring to if Clinton were elected. “She’s not going to win the election, but I’m just saying. If Hillary is elected, she will be under protracted criminal investigation likely followed by the trial of a sitting president. This is just what we need.”

Donald Trump during the campaign.

@Blickers,
It can be a nightmare and financial ruin for most of the ordinary people. During Iran Contra investigations one career employee was under outrageous scrutiny because he was a point of contact for Oliver North. The senior employee was basically the person who had to shuttle requests from Col. North to another tier at the Agency to be fulfilled or denied. Our guy's big mistake was trusting North to be honest....North got a pardon, our guy was demoted and saddled with huge legal debt. Our guy was not part of the illegal activities, his sin was trusting that all of Col. North requests were legitimate, some were some were not.

That really is bad, when the little guys get saddled with legal bills of six figures. The famous people get millionaires or organizations run by millionaires to give them posh jobs to pay those bills. The little guys get financially killed. The advantage of civil service is not so much that it pays a lot, but that it's secure. When that part goes, you're screwed.

They usually have pretty good pensions too. My brother worked for the State of California, and he got his kids to work for the state for the benefits.

Of course I am. But, of course, we should not forget that Trump is the man, perhaps the only one, with enough (brain) power to handle this massive threat, the Hercules that can once and for all put this hydra down...
But even Hercules had to have help in that job, he couldn't do it alone. And that is of course where you come in!

So it is vitally important that you, greatest of minds, team up with the true genius Trump and be the Iolaus to his Hercules: help him handle this terrible, terrible threat. I'm sure that the massive power of your combined minds can solve this problem once and for all!
