..."Any implication that that these four people quit is wrong," one senior State Department official said.
"These people are loyal to the secretary, the President and to the State Department.
There is just not any attempt here to dis the President.
People are not quitting and running away in disgust.
This is the White House cleaning house."

Just because someone resigns does not mean that they are not obligated to work till a replacement is in place. They could be held liable for breach of contract and that means everything they earned may need to be returned as per their contract they signed. It is also not limited to money they earned on the job.
Oh yeah, I forgot, we are dealing with the government. Scratch what I said.

What this says to me is that the senior management were there for partisan reasons, rather than to serve ALL the citizens who pay their salaries. It's proof in fact.
What the hell do you think Trump's actions are if not partisan...or better still just a protect Trump act? and they will be replaced by whom?
Washington and surrounding areas also have a deal of people below the poverty line 17% + is one given, while the average age is quite young in Washington, and most surrounding areas at 33 years old.
Just because Trump doesn't want these old hands, is proof of nothing.
Let's remember Trump is no fan of laws and people of the law for instance, unless they work in his favour.

This kind of news makes me wonder ... many options !
This is the official narrative... and who am i to rebut that.
But ...with a little knowledge of politics.. .. it could also be:
- They were given a choice, either resign gracefully else we will fire you .
- They were not there for the job, only because of agenda's and "friends"
- They have so much to hide and be ashamed of... and decided that running in a group might be safer
- They don't represent the country, only their own ideology. Willing to disrupt the country because they can not handle democracy.
- They got a pension from Sorros, he pays anyone who can disrupt the current office.
Time will tell.
Really? Cause I just picture it like the people who abandoned King Joffrey when they realized he was a lunatic.

We do not need waterboarding. Just give me some powdered alcohol, a bag of pop rocks candy, a gerbil tube with 1 gerbil, and a cup of water.
I can make them sing.

Well maybe trump shouldn't have provided such idiotic choices for appointees. I mean come on, Carson as head of housing? No qualifications. Tillerson as Sec of State. Please. Anenergy exec? That's a joke to most well informed people across the world.
I don't think you understand what exactly leadership is and what a Cabinet Secretary actually does.
Tillerson is the PERFECT choice for SOS....perfect. What is a joke is how long the idiot dem politicians are taking to approve Trump's A-list for the Perfect Team. Politicians only have experience in politicking. That's all they know how to do. Jeez!
