'Leadership, Fitness and Sex': Trump aide moonlights as podcast host

Source: Politico

An official on Trump’s National Security Council — where stressed-out aides aren’t exactly known for their ample free time — has launched a website and related podcast on leadership.

-snip-

The host is retired Rear Admiral Garry Hall, who serves as the NSC’s senior director for international organizations and alliances. The “Admiral’s Almanac,” a podcast available on a personal website, appears to be a side project for a man whose day job is, in theory at least, punishingly busy.

It’s not clear whether Hall has the White House’s permission to offer his personal thoughts online, or whether he might be breaking any rules. But his foray into audio entertainment has startled former NSC officials who note that senior NSC directors generally avoid the limelight and are — or should be — pressed for time.

“To plan or record a podcast in your spare time perhaps would suggest that you’re not devoting your full attention to the mountains of work on the desk of any NSC staffer, most certainly a senior director,” said Ned Price, an NSC spokesman under former President Barack Obama

Another former Obama NSC official said this was "in serious ‘what the f---' territory.”

But then, the entire Trump admin seems to be in serious WTF territory.

5. The fish rots from the head. The entire WH staff is monetizing their jobs. But don't worry...

If you fall on hard times you might get a cardboard box of "shelf-stable foods". If you're lucky, Boss Tweet might even toss it at you during his press conference.

6. another destroyer appointment

Hall has plenty of time because he's there to either destroy the post or let it wither and die.

And BTW:


At one point, Hall stresses that what separates good from great leaders is the willingness to be held accountable. “The great leader accepts accountability without equivocation,” he says. “The troops can smell the lack of accountability at the top.”


Will TrumPutin be pleased to see that?
Some reporter should ask the Huckster.
