Inferring from A to B-- this sequence of events:

A: John Kelly, former White House CoS, decides that the interests of the nation take precedence over the well-established and generally honorable obligation of discretion as a former WH official. This is obvs not a decision Kelly takes lightly, but the interests of the nation are paramount to him. He begins talking.

B: Within 24 hours, Hope Hicks, Reince Priebus, and Sean Spicer are suddenly back on the WH payroll, where presumably, legal obligations will assure they do not have the option to make such a decision.

Dude, could you BE any more transparent? Well, translucent orange, anyway.

Seriously, if I, a hick from the sticks who tries real hard not to pay too much attention to the shenanigans at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in the interests of my own mental health, can figure that one out...

...WHO do you think you're fooling?

incredulously,
Bright

4. Because he really does think he's the smartest guy in the world!

Reminds me of the John Cleese quote:

"Stupid people have no idea how stupid they are."

And I read recently that Trump called Bloomberg after the 2016 election to ask for some advice. Bloomberg told him to hire the smartest people as advisors. Trump said he didn't need that because he was the smartest guy! (paraphrase)

2. Recommended.

An unethical person will generally surround himself/herself with unethical people. There is less conflict that way, and they all understand each other.

10. Taxpayers will be paying their

salaries, so tRump won't be affected at all. Hope will be back on her knees, steaming his pants. Using a suit steamer of course, since no other "steaming" is possible for little Donnie. When will Lewendowski be back, since he and Hope were a "thing"? Oh, and the wife beater, too, they were a "thing" also. What is Hope's job description "Comfort Keeper"?

13. They're fooling all the Jebus Jumpers who buy into the Prodigal Son story

They'll see it as proof of people who left seeing the brilliance and superior wisdom of the Orange Blob and have now been welcomed home. Kelly obviously missed the point and is now full of hate and we all know how much they dislike that kind of hate. If something doesn't fit their world view, they just dismiss it as the devil's work.

If a fellow hick from the same sticks has figured that out, you can probably take it to the bank.

15. We need to get up a pool for

how long Hicks, Priebus, and Spicer last this time ... in Scaramucci units of course.
