It’s time for a total crackdown on the scum that still permeates the Trump administration almost two years after the election.
President Donald Trump said Thursday that he will “weed out” individuals inside his administration who he does not like, echoing remarks from his wife, who told ABC News that there are people working for her husband who she does not trust.
During a live phone interview Thursday morning with Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” the president said “it was more true” in the past, when he was first establishing himself in Washington, that he distrusted members of his administration. But he cited U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who announced her resignation this week, as an example of the “great people” who now fill his administration.
Trump said he would do away with those he does not like.
“Are there some I’m not in love with? Yes. We’ll weed them out slowly,” the president said.
Trump also identified Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as “a star” of his administration, specifically highlighting his negotiations with North Korea. Trump unceremoniously fired Pompeo’s predecessor, Rex Tillerson, last spring amid reportedly simmering tensions between Trump and Tillerson and rumors Tillerson had called the president a “f—— moron.”
Melania Trump was more direct in her negative opinions about some in the administration. ABC’s Tom Llamas, who spoke to the first lady during her trip to Africa, asked her about rumors that she was the White House “gatekeeper,” dictating to the president whom he should and shouldn’t allow into the administration. He also asked her whether there are people in the administration she doesn’t trust.
She responded flatly: “Yes.”
“I give him my honest advice and honest opinions, then he does what he wants to do,” she told Llamas.
Melania is the only person Trump can truly trust. And I suppose his sons. But they’re not going to be as wise in such matters as hunting traitors.

As far as why it is that he even has to deal with this scum…
When Nimrata Randhawa was finally let go after her two year-long rampage attempting to start a world war, a lot of people were like “why did he put her there in the first place?”
Do you people even know how this system works?
All cabinet members must be confirmed by the Senate. Meaning that when he first arrived, there was simply no way to get people in positions if they were actually good people on board with his program, because the Senate was not on board with his program.
This is not a dictatorship, regrettably. He does not have ultimate power just because he’s President. And there wasn’t a list of “solid guys” who support the Trump agenda who he could install at cabinet level. He just had to put up with the crap of a bunch of scumbags.
But now, with the help of outrageous Jewish Democrats, he’s transformed the entire Republican Party.
These people are now at the point where they understand that their only option is to either quit (Flake, Corker) or get with the program (Graham).
And a resounding win in the midterms would give him carte blanche to just appoint whoever he wants to these positions.
