Thread: Trump White House "Toxic on a day to day level

    Trump White House "Toxic on a day to day level

    President Trump once yelled at Chief of Staff John Kelly so viciously that, per the New York Times, Kelly told staff that “he had never been spoken to like that during 35 years of serving his country.” Trump once screamed at Attorney General Jeff Sessions so viciously that Sessions, per the Times, described it as “the most humiliating experience in decades of public life.” The president also once called up National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster for the express purpose of — you guessed it — screaming at him.

    There is a clear pattern of Trump, through his own personal viciousness and carelessness, abusing and alienating his top deputies, publicly as well as privately. This obviously creates an extremely difficult if not downright hostile work environment in the White House.

    The consequences can be hard to see on a day-to-day level, but experts say Trump’s repeated humiliations of his staff destroy staff White House morale, suck up valuable time better spent on policy, and drive away top talent. This makes the White House function less effectively as an organization, weakening its ability to deal with real crises like North Korea and Puerto Rico.

    “This administration is toxic and dysfunctional,” says Paul Musgrave, a political scientist at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. “The weak link is Trump himself.”

    That's how far I got before I laughed and didn't read any further. It seems like every day the Slimes and the other prog rumor mongers come out with some crazy story, only to have everyone involved immediately say it's not true. At this point I just assume they're lying and don't bother reading their crap.

    And they all take up the gauntlet. One news outlet will make up a story, then all the other monkey-dos will take it up - "Such and Such reports that blah blah blah!"

    PS, nobody cares what progbot armchair psychologists "think", either.

    Aren’t you the one complaining about all the leaks coming from inside the White House and how it was unpatriotic? Now you say it’s just lies? Pic an opinion. Or an original thought

    Nope. Must have been the voices in your head. Perhaps the same ones who told you that I thought national pride was wrong.

    I'm the one who has been saying for years that the progpress makes chit up out of thin air and uses it to slander whatever Republican catches their attention.

    I wonder what the length of service is working in management within any of the Trump Corporations...
    One would think if this is true they would constantly be crying on the evening news..

    Yet in fact..it's the opposite.

    Have you not seen how many people have been fired or resigned from
    His administration already?

    Are you really paying that little attention
