LOL this is just wonderful satire. Oh, wait, it’s real???
Priebus who has acted like he still is infatuated with Trump since being canned (or whatever the story was), is one of the few people in that administration that hasn’t signed a non-disclosure agreement. So keep it up Mooch.
Arthur Schwartz, a friend of Anthony Scaramucci who has been referred to as his publicist, warned Reince Priebus that he would “start dropping oppo” on the former White House chief of staff, adding “Mistress much?” in a Sunday morning tweet.
The tweets have since been deleted, but of course, screenshots live on forever:
Since McCain switched his vote and killed the Obamacare Repeal effort,
Trump has encouraged police brutality:

The police have disavowed Trump’s remarks:
The SCPD has strict rules & procedures relating to the handling of prisoners. Violations of those rules are treated extremely seriously.

Priebus was fired or quit or some combination of that. And Scaramucci’s wife has made like Spicer and Preibus and has run for the hills.
At this point I am really hoping Trump goes golfing so we as a nation can get some damn sleep.
So far the Inverse Trump Square Law is holding up well. Since Trump’s little victory on Tuesday of the Repeal debate vote passing, Trump has tweeted a transgender ban in the military to the military’s surprise, had the boy scouts apologize for his bizarre speech at their jamboree, had his director of communications go on an unhinged rant with a reporter for the New Yorker, had McCain go Maverick killing the Skinny Repeal Bill and hopes of getting Obamacare Repealed, and lost his chief of staff.
Just another typical week in an insane administration.
In the early-morning hours after Senate Republicans’ last-ditch attempt to repeal Obamacare failed, a common narrative began to emerge: that while three “no” votes from Republicans killed the bill, only Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) saved the day.
CNN called it “John McCain’s maverick moment.” The Washington Post described it as “The night John McCain killed the GOP’s health-care fight.”
To be sure, McCain’s vote against the bill was dramatic and decisive. He flew back to Washington from Arizona less than two weeks after he was diagnosed with brain cancer, after having surgery to remove a blood clot from above his eye. He made a sweeping speech about returning Senate procedure to a time of bipartisan, transparent cooperation. Then he proceeded to briefly horrify ACA proponents by voting yes on a motion to proceed vote, and yes again on the Republican Better Care Reconciliation Act.
So when McCain cast a performative last-minute vote against “skinny repeal,” it immediately overshadowed the two women Republican senators who did far more to halt Republicans’ reckless efforts to repeal Obamacare. Sens. Lisa Murkowski (AK) and Susan Collins (ME) repeatedly stood their ground against the three health bills their colleagues tried to ram through the Senate.
Murkowski and Collins were the only Republicans to vote against a motion to proceed with the health care bill debate. Both women cast votes against the Better Care Reconciliation Act, which could have led to 22 million more uninsured Americans. They both also voted against the Obamacare Reconciliation Act — repeal and delay — which could have led to 32 million more uninsured Americans.
