The Mooch Had A Very Bad Week

Anthony Scaramucci (a.k.a. The Mooch) had a very bad week. A short one too.

President Trump appointed him communications director over the objections of Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Mooch’s Very Bad Week

Spicer got mad and quit, sort of. Mooch fired Priebus. His wife divorced him. Harvard Law School listed him as dead. He called Priebus a f-ing paranoid schizophrenic in a New Yorker interview. And then new White House chief of staff,  stand up straight shooter Marine Gen. John Kelly, fired him.

Kind of like Jack Ruby whacking Lee Harvey Oswald.

Oh, and his ex-wife gave birth.

It was a week with the makings of a country song.

Jeff Sessions Goes To Bat Against Gang Violence

Trump snubbed Jeff Sessions in a speech about  MS-13 gang violence last week. Sessions was in El Salvador to actually do something about it.

Carrier Pigeon 2.0

In the old days battlefield communications occurred via carrier pigeon. In a postmodern update, Trump tweeted transgenders out of the military.

Carrier Pigeon 2.0

Defense secretary Mattis was “appalled” that the president tweeted his way around his own command structure.

McCain called it, “yet another example of why major policy announcements should not be made via Twitter.”

The military is awaiting “further guidance” before enforcing the policy.

Teflon Trump

During the campaign Donald Trump was called the Teflon Don. Criticism didn’t stick with his base.

But now that he’s president, what really doesn’t stick is advice. He ignored advisors Sean Spicer, Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon when he hired the “Mooch” as communications director.

Spicer got mad and quit.

Sessions Renews Federal Asset Forfeiture Program

President Trump gave an interview to his favorite newspaper, the NYT. He allowed that he wouldn’t have appointed Jeff Sessions Attorney General had he known Sessions would recuse himself from the Russian allegations.

Meanwhile A.G. Sessions has been busying himself by renewing the federal asset forfeiture program.

A little pithier mention of the property grab plan would have helped this cartoon. But I still like it.
