Media says White House officials are reportedly STAYING for the same reason they are LEAVING

Amid the departure of now-former chief strategist Steve Bannon, it seems the media has a good explanation for why there hasn’t been any resignations tendered by White House officials over President Donald Trump’s remarks about Charlottesville.

…they are STAYING because Trump is an idiot.

This coming from many of the same folks who said recent turnover was from people LEAVING because the president was an idiot.

In what amounts to an excuse to pile on Trump, Mediaite said Sunday administration officials are NOT resigning so they can “keep Trump in check.”

The article laments that “nobody has quit in protest of the president’s comments,” and points to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s response to Yale classmates, who insist he has a “moral obligation” to resign — never mind that they distort Trump’s remarks as “support of Nazism and white supremacy.”

“I feel compelled to let you know that the president in no way, shape or form, believes that neo-Nazi and other hate groups who endorse violence are equivalent to groups that demonstrate in peaceful and lawful ways,” Mnuchin said in a statement, according to CNN.

Citing Axios AM, which uses the always reliable anonymous “senior administration officials,” readers are told how the noble staffers stick around for the greater good of mankind.

“You have no idea how much crazy stuff we kill”: The most common response centers on the urgent importance of having smart, sane people around Trump to fight his worst impulses. If they weren’t there, they say, we would have a trade war with China, massive deportations, and a government shutdown to force construction of a Southern wall.


These same individuals apparently also stick around because they like the power, but that doesn’t seem to strike the press as problematic. No, we’re to believe that Trump is the bad guy.
