      Possibly, which is why he resigned. Trump pointed at the door and said, "GET THE [naughty word] OUTTA HERE!" so he did.

    Why would anyone who actually knows anything about economics and business want to work for Donald Trump?

    Im just surprised any of them ever gave it a shot thinking they could make a difference.

      Why would anyone want to work for Trump? Well, the salary may have been good...
      Why would anyone stop working for Trump? The drugs wore off.

    The officials insisted there was no single factor behind the departure of Mr. Cohn, who heads the National Economic Council.

    Biggest factor = d1ckhead boss.

    Reprehensible as it was, gassing was a conventional and accepted method for execution at the time. It is a stretch to equivocate the two.

    One thing for sure... Over the past 13-14 months, we've all learned how to drain a swamp.

        Gary Cohn and Anagram gone on the same day. Everybody’s jumping ship!

        Too bad Mr. Cohn has zero chance of ever regaining any shred of dignity. They all had to sign it away while swearing an oath to serve the constiTrumption.

          Anagram's gone?
          Shoot. I so hoped to learn a few things from him.

          Mr. Cohn left more or less of his own volition. At least I assume that's what ''resigned'' means.
          Anagram, on the other hand, ''had a little help'' with his departure. He sat on the basket of the HCPP trebuchet, yelled insults and ignored advice to ''get down from there.'' When he kept on yelling insults and all but dared Phil to launch him, Phil obliged him.

          To be fair Cohen is a tremendous d1ckhead as well.

          Until the departure of Cohn, I was hoping the tariff nonsense was a childish attempt at gaining some bargaining leverage (in the NAFTA negotiations). It appears that my hopes were ill advised.

          If the adults don't take over soon, we're in for a bumpy ride

            Never get your hopes up when Trump is involved. No matter how bad you think things could get, he'll find a way to make them worse.

                'Remember Alas? This is a song about Alas.'

                'Dallas Alas.'

                'She asked me why the singer's name was Alas.'



                I guess they just didn't understand traditional Irish songs, many of which are about Alas...
