Why All The Conflicting And Contradictory Stories....

We hear that Trump is unhinged and losing it. He's blowing up in the WH. He hates everybody there. Kelly is on the outs and will get fired.

Then today - they trot out Kelly and he basically refutes all those stories and says everything is beautiful.

What are we to believe any more. What is fact? What is fake?

Who's snowing who?

I just can't take anymore of these Chutes and Ladders.

Is Mueller even real?

1. No person keeps their job

For very long by going on national TV and announcing their boss is a narcissistic child and the team is in chaos.

2. Occam's Razor--Trump has a long history of chaos and conflict.

Ergo, I doubt it's any different with him as President.

Nothing has changed in him as President from the 71 years of him before he was President.

5. Precisely. He can somehow function marginally in his own Category-5 shitstorms.

The rest of humanity -- the sane ones, anyway -- can see right through him, and spot him for the phony, grifting bullshitter that he really is. And knowing that fact, it's doubly hard to listen to that braying jackass spew out his self-congratulating, self-involved, self-profiting, LYING crap. And then to be dragged into his personal dramas that may, at some point, result in a genuine existential threat to this country.

#45 is definitely the bull who carries his own china shop around with him. He is coarse and common, and transforms everything around him into a vulgarity.

3. This situation reminds me of Invasion of the Body

Snatchers or The Stepford Wives. If I were still a sane employee in the White House I would be afraid to fall asleep at night.

6. I wouldn't be surprised if the story changed the outcome

Trump plans on firing him, it leaks, Trump keeps him on for now to avoid more embarassment.

10. Yes to all that, but it won't matter

Kelly is going to resign at the first opportunity. He would have resigned already, except he knows he has to be the one to shoot Cheeto when he tries to start World War 3. It could be any day now.

8. The fact that they have to trot out Kelly - means the stories are true

9. I wouldn't expect Kelly to say anything different.

Just like Tillerson and his press conference.

Drumpf said "You go out there and tell them everything's under control and I'm a great boss to work for..."
And they did it.

Anyone who's had to deal with top brass in crisis, whether military or corporate, understands that no matter what, admission of failure or ineptitude is never an option unless there's no way it can be hidden.

Drumpf will fire everyone and threaten them with the NDAs they signed before he allows anyone to imply anything is going wrong or that he's incompetent.

11. There have been a lot of false stories right here.

Perhaps they're wishful thinking, but they do us no good.

12. You might as well say you can't determine who is telling the truth

between Weinstein and his growing list of all-star accusers, since they're both giving very "contradictory" accounts about what happened...

13. Trolling Everyone

The whole country. This is what he does. When you actually listen to a conman, he tells you upfront exactly what is going to happen.

The only problem we have now is anyone's personal refusal to accept what is right before their eyes.
