The Trump Administration is nothing but a true crime syndicate and has brought shame upon this nation. Scandal after scandal has been the norm ever since Trump’s electoral college win. The New York Times reported today that there was a physical altercation in February at the White House that was bad enough that the Secret Service had to get involved, and the fight was between two of Trump’s closest allies. The throw-down was between Chief of Staff John Kelly and Trump fanboy Corey Lewandowski.
The altercation started after Kelly and Lewandowski met with Trump in the Oval Office over the Rob Porter controversy. After the meeting, Kelly became enraged with some of the things Lewandowski said about him and the way he handled the controversy. Kelly called to have Lewandowski escorted out of the West Wing, and tempers flared as the two began arguing. The Times said that:
‘Mr. Kelly grabbed Mr. Lewandowski by his collar, trying to push him against a wall, according to a person with direct knowledge of the episode. Mr. Lewandowski did not get physical in response, according to multiple people familiar with the episode. But Secret Service agents were called in. Ultimately, the two men agreed to move on, those briefed on the episode said. Still, people in the West Wing who learned at the time what had happened were stunned.’
Apparently, coworkers and former coworkers of Kelly aren’t impressed with the job he’s doing. There have been reports of Kelly and National Security Advisor John Bolton getting into shouting matches and Anthony Scaramucci has recently even been talking about the hissy fits Kelly throws. Really none of this should be surprising considering the train wreck the Trump administration has been from day one. With today’s news that Trump has admitted to being a white nationalist, things definitely aren’t looking up as far as the leadership in this country goes.
