dude.
just give it up.
he's a bad actor. you trusted him to be smarter than he is,

he underestimated the magnitude of the job and the various requirements








You make a very well thought out and convincing argument, well let me see, hmmmm, perhaps I should just give it up. NOT!

Try something a bit more articulate and convincing next time.

Homeland Security spokesman shoots down ‘fake news’ story with one tweet


Very soon after it was announced today that Reince Priebus was out as White House chief of staff, a report began circulating that appeared to prove the ineptitude and incompetence of the Trump administration. Until one tweet from a spokesman for the Department of Homeland Security shot it down.

Shane Harris of the Wall Street Journal tweeted from his social media account on Twitter.

“A DHS spokesman tells me the department has received “no guidance” on who is now the acting secretary of homeland security,” he said.

The vacancy at the Department of Homeland Security will come from retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, who had been the secretary at the department, but will become the White House chief of staff, replacing Reince Priebus.

But before the story could grab hold, David Lapan, presumably a different Department of Homeland Security spokesman, corrected Harris from his own Twitter account.

“Untrue that DHS received no guidance on acting secretary,” he said. “[Secretary Kelly] remains Secretary – [Deputy Secretary] Duke becomes acting [secretary] on Mon.”

Was this why you were asking that goofy question?

You might not want to use that source much. Priebus himself said that Kelly is replacing him.

What goofy question? You just confirmed my suspicion. Homeland Security, not the White House, fell back on their own protocol and issued a statement, answering the media's questions of "who's in charge of Homeland Security?". Trump hasn't selected or announced Duke as a replacement for Kelly, Homeland Security did, because it's protocol.

But, make no mistake, this White House knows nothing of protocol nor does it understand the ramifications when the Orange Dictator's tweets whatever ideas are rolling around inside his cranium.

You may want to actually read the source before commenting on it.

Your post showed your bias. DHS has leadership and only those who hate Trump seem to be having a nutty over it for their own reasons surpassing sanity and comprehension.

Trump won... get over it.

Kelly is a great man and a true defender of America, which is why democrats hate him. They hated Preibus, until Trump fired him, and they thought they could make hay off of it. Some democrats are truly despicable and clearly anti-America.

LOL........There's some deflection!

Trump tweeted that Kelly was the new White House Chief of Staff, but said nothing about the vacant position that this transition will leave at Homeland Security. Kelly's replacement will have to be confirmed by the Senate, and if Trump chooses to promote Duke, which I doubt he'll do, then he's going to have to get confirmation for her replacement too.

That's a lot of work to do before we get a replacement to head the office that protects our borders from terrorists! But hey, Trump is mad because he didn't get his Obamacare repeal.

Trump's tantrums are so transparent, even if his administration lies through their slimey teeth to hide them!

I am not so sure I would consider Kelly a true defender of america if he is taking a staff job instead of using his skills where they are needed as Secretary of Homeland Security. This is more the move of someone who is a bootlicker yes man trying to climb the ladder. As he is a former general its par for the course though.

God we can only hope so what a drip
she reminds me of Bachmann every time she's staring into the camera like she's getting her passport photo taken while she waits for the questions. SO FAKE. so fake.

how do people learn to look so vacant? I am so weak at controlling my facial expressions....

how people can pull off that absolute plastic "pose" camera smile mag-cover photo-opp say-cheese face for extended periods, even when under pointed questioning..........? Are they just so vapid that they don't have anywhere deeper from which to gaze? more than just the lackluster of a dusty and smudged lens from an aim-and-shoot camera you buy on the subway to take pics of the tour you're going on......

anyway - off topic, but the sooner she's gone the better
