On Monday, Trump denounced “so-called leaks” coming out of the White House on Twitter, calling them a “massive over exaggeration” brought on by the “Fake News Media in order to make us look as bad as possible.” He went on to say that leakers are traitors and they will find out who they are.
Then, that evening, Kellyanne Conway, counselor to Trump, went on Fox News and was asked about Trump’s reaction to the leaks on Twitter. Conway said that she expects White House changes as a result of these leaks, but perhaps, the strangest part of the interview was when she made a statement saying:
‘If you come to work at the pleasure of the president and you have the privilege and blessing of coming today, every, today, every work in this, in this White House…then you oughta be competent…you oughta be loyal…’

So, apparently, Kellyanne “works at the pleasure of the president,” which must mean that he runs his administration like a Russian brothel where his staff should take pride in doing whatever he requests whenever he desires it. Conway also stumbled on her sentence sounding either drunk or stoned out of her mind considering she couldn’t even coherently communicate her thoughts.
Nevertheless, Trump should be flattered that Conway is “competent” and “loyal,” and aims to please her president on a daily basis. So all the traitors need to head for the door as soon as possible.
Here’s what Twitter had to say:
