He has made similar remarks about Chris Liddell, a deputy chief of staff at the White House, according to people familiar with the matter. Heís also asked advisers whether his counselor Kellyanne Conway would be a good chief of staff, other people said.

3. Mickey is not going anywhere soon.

Remember,he is one of the King Pins in the Tea Party and Trump needs these Suckers to survive in the short run. Mark Meadows is not about to see his pal go down in flames anytime soon. Same for Leningrad Lindsey.

14. I vote for Conway. Like her boss, she's a dumbbell, a liar, inarticulate, devoid of a thought...

...apparently senile and has a spouse who clearly has no real love for her.

Match made in hell, I say.

15. On Craigslist: Tremendous employment opportunity at White House. Must have tiny heart.

This is how the Craigslist job posting would read for replacing Mulvaney as White House Chief of Staff:

Tremendous employment opportunity at White House. Must have tiny heart, no conscience or ethics, with blind loyalty a must. Candidate must be of moderate intelligence, be able to resist telling the truth as needed. Do not anticipate tenure or long-term employment. Benefits are HUUUGE.
