Leaks have hurt every presidency since before I started following politics. They have been the source of major, and minor embarrassments of every administration. Think back eight years ago. In the first year in office, there were no fewer than 18 “scandals” that plagued the Obama Administration. A lot of them came to light because of leaks to the press. And I’m not just talking about WikiLeaks or Edward Snowden.
Well, the same thing is happening to Donald Trump. He’s got a leak problem, and everybody knows it. The sad thing is, Trump actually knows why he’s got a leak problem and he needs to do something about it. He’s got a bunch, and we’re talking hundreds here, of people that were Obama appointees that are still hanging around Washington in their old jobs, and they are doing their best to try and discredit, delegitimize, and hurt the Trump presidency.
The Trump team knows about this and have urged The Donald to do something about it, like fire them, and replace them with someone more loyal. Frankly, I would have thought that is the first thing you do when taking office. You get a list of every employee that Obama put in place, you ask for all of their resignations, and you dump them. Then you get to work putting your people in their place. How elementary is that?
The leaks going on in the Trump administration are going to continue unless and until the president does something to get rid of these idiots. They are there for one reason only and that is to embarrass the president. The quicker he can get these people out of their positions, pare down the size of government (most bureaucrats are Democrats to begin with), and start running lean and mean, the quicker he is actually going to be able to get things done without all of the sideshow antics that the snowflakes are throwing at him.
Case in point is this crap with Jeff Sessions. The Democrats smell blood in the water and think there really is something there but they have no proof. So what do you do if you have no proof? Well, in their playbook, you scream louder and longer and something will emerge. Or at least, that’s their theory. But in our world…I’m talking Earth here, it doesn’t work that way. Typically, if someone does something wrong, you do your due diligence, you find out what the facts are and you prosecute based on facts. The Democrats don’t know how to do that. They throw facts to the wind consistently (it’s about the only thing they do consistently). And they run on emotion. Oh, they’re really good about running on emotion. Unfortunately, it’s totally wrong. You don’t prosecute cases based on emotion, and they shouldn’t be prosecuting anything Trump or his team does on that. You do it based on facts. Their problem is, they don’t have facts…they’ve got innuendo. That’s all they’ve got. Oh, and lots of Obama people still hanging around willing to leak stuff. Lots of that!
Donald, take some advice. Get rid of anyone that got their job in the last eight years. You don’t need them anyway…the government needs to chop about 50% of its workforce!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
