People may feel as if they are in Alice In Wonderland‘s world when they hear about the next strange thing that occurs in Donald Trump’s presidency. Certainly, it appears that POTUS’ cabinet is the 21st century version of the Mad Hatter’s tea party. This just happened.
CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta was barred from the White House and its grounds by the president. After Acosta and CNN took the next logical action and sued, the administration gave back Acosta’s credentials. The journalist has just dropped some more logic on the country with this tweet:
‘Alexa did this really happen today? Two days before Christmas the Secretary of State calls the Secretary of Defense to tell him he’s out and the Secretary of Treasury (from the beach in Mexico) gets on the phone with the banks to make sure they have money to lend people.’
Acosta was wise to use logic in the face of Trump’s illogical White House. It seems Trump made his fairly new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo relay a message of doom. True, the Secretary of Defense James Mattis gave his two-month notice when POTUS decided on the spur of the moment to abandon our allies the Kurds. Rather than let Mattis’ use his two months to hand off this really huge job, Trump got angry over Mattis’ advice in his resignation letter. Trump had Pompeo can him on the spot.
When the U.S. leaves Syria, Turkey and ISIS will crush the Kurds. So much for treating our allies well.
Then, there was the Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin on a Mexico beach soaking up the sun rays with his movie star wife. Rather than deal with the worst stock market since the Great Recession, our great secretary of Treasury just dialed up the big banks. He was just checking to make certain they had enough money to make loans.
