Trump Snaps At Mulvaney: ‘I’m In Charge Of The Hatch Act!”

The president has some issues with reality, which must have come from his life of privilege including never being held accountable for his actions. This has led to the president of the United States acting like an utter buffoon with zero sense of humility.

Trump’s latest target for abuse os Mick Mulvaney, who has some serious making up to do after he went on national television and told the world that the president committed quid pro quo in Ukraine and that he does it pretty regularly otherwise. Oh, and Mulvaney also told Americans to “get over it.”

Mulvaney tried to walk back his statement, saying that the press and every other person who hear him, mistook what he was trying to say, which was quite literally that Trump withheld federal aid from Ukraine unless they agreed to investigate the DNC server and Joe Biden.

Stepping back and seeing that damage Mulvaney had done, Trump decided that new rhetoric was needed. He then sent Mulvaney and Mike Pompeo to do the network tv rounds Sunday morning to make up for the blunder.

It didn’t work.

Mulvaney, who unwittingly told the truth, got his boss in big impeachment trouble. According to reports, this isn’t the first time Trump has taken his anger out on Mulvaney. Allegedly, Trump became so enraged at Mulvaney that he yelled at him during a summer meeting with top aides after Mulvaney warned him against violating the century-old rule.

According to Yahoo News:

The meeting in question occurred in June, a month in which at least two prominent officials in Mr Trump’s administration had been cited for potential violations the law.

Those two were White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway, and White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump — the president’s adult daughter — should be punished for violating the law, which barres government employees to advocate for the election or defeat of a partisan political candidate.

That’s when Trump allegedly snapped at Mulvaney for even suggesting that the president had to abide by the laws of the United States. Trump reportedly shouted, “I’m in charge of the Hatch Act.”

Nothing could be further from the truth, however, because the Hatch Act was designed to keep a president in check.

The report continues:

That mocking followed after Mr Trump was forced to choose a different site for the next G7 Summit, after he was condemned for choosing his own resort in Florida for the event.

Ms Conway, who the US Office of Special Counsel recommended be removed from her office in June for violating the Hatch Act on “numerous occasions”, has mocked the idea that she would be removed for her advocacy on behalf of the president.
