4. Does this mean Jared and Ivanka will also be fired?

If John McEntee is fired because he doesn't have security clearance, shouldn't that also apply to the Jarvanka kiddies?
For that matter, the entire Trump clan should be fired.

Just sayin'

7. Remember "not related to the President"

However factual and true there will always be the nonsensical mantra to be uttered by the establishment that installed him "not related to the President"

The assholes that installed him never get the full credit as idiots that they are. Wanting and telling it like is should never be below us. We are not being uncivilized when we call out the pond scum for what they are

9. "McEntee would be joining the reelection effort as a senior adviser for campaign operations...."

Keeping those good guys you know!


Minutes after news of his departure broke, the Trump campaign announced McEntee would be joining the reelection effort as a senior adviser for campaign operations.

13. This could be a big deal.

It occurs to me that the firing of the SOS could be linked to this. IF they can get him to talk the whole nest of vipers is going down. Getting rid of Rex just pushed it to the back page.
