    Values blond hair...racist...dictator...hmm, who does that sound like?

    JohnCook Australia ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ. Russian born Trump is making a mockery of this job. Why did the Trump family adopt this little Chernobyl waif ? Of course it was a tax scam but it came unstuck when it was found little Donnie had been exposed to radiation poisoning. Well we all know that causes skin discoloring and small hands that canโ€™t develop to normal size. Low IQ and uncontrollable lying are symptoms also .
    Doing moronic things and denying that it was you is again another symptom. Pussy grabbing is high up on side effects.

    I really respect Mr. Ayers for not taking that job. He would have been labeled a traitor like Trump. Trump is poison and will go down in history as the most corrupt President as we've ever had. A man who was more loyal to our enemies than to the American people. I can hear history Professors now. "The thing about Trump is that he could not tell the truth. He averaged ten lies a day. We will be studying why this man was a traitor many times over this semester and we have a lot of ground to cover." Songs

    Let me get this straight... The President of the United States is guilty of conspiracy with Russia, and paying off porn girls for sex, then paying THEM off for their silence, during the election (thus using election $) and all the while making biz $ to build hotels in the Middle East and Russia, yea, a lot. So, to get this straight, the US President is a real estate salesman. Dude...thought that was he was from the beginning. See?

    It's clear that the WH is turning the next Chief of Staff hunt into a bad episode of The Apprentice. Unfortunately for the WH, it's backfiring on Trump because people are turning him down, and the ones applying are even more incompetent, visceral, and toxic than Trump himself. So I do hope Stephen Miller is selected. My money is on Cory Lewandowski or KellyAnne Conway.
    I have to laugh at Santorum turning down the WH offer, so he says. Like anyone would offer him a job at the WH. There is no way Jared Kurshner will let Chris Christie inside the WH. Ultimatum would be made, either Christie goes or Jared will take Ivanka and leave the WH.
