Tillerson Fired

His days were numbered since he called Trump a fucking moron. But I guess he found out about this from Trump’s tweet?

And he’s not the only one fired today:

It’s just 10AM!

Question of the Day

How do you spend $139,000.00 on doors? I mean, that’s like 9K more than it takes to fuck up a hush agreement to a pornstar.

The U.S. Interior Department is spending almost $139,000 on new office doors for Secretary Ryan Zinke, according to public records.

The Associated Press first reported the expenditure, which it said was for three sets of double doors in Zinke’s office.

According to records posted online, the project — described as “Secretary’s Door” — cost $138,670, and are to carried out by a Maryland company called Conquest Solutions. The company’s website says it specializes in building automation systems. According to government records, Conquest Solutions was the only company to bid for the job.

Resignation of the Day

It’s really impossible to keep up with these:

Gary D. Cohn, President Trump’s top economic adviser, plans to resign, becoming the latest in a series of high-profile departures from the Trump administration, White House officials said on Tuesday.

The officials insisted there was no single factor behind the departure of Mr. Cohn, who heads the National Economic Council. But his decision to leave came after he seemed poised to lose an internal struggle amid a Wild West-style process over Mr. Trump’s plan to impose large tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.

“Gary has been my chief economic adviser and did a superb job in driving our agenda, helping to deliver historic tax cuts and reforms and unleashing the American economy once again,” Mr. Trump said in a statement to The New York Times. “He is a rare talent, and I thank him for his dedicated service to the American people.”

Mr. Cohn is expected to leave in the coming weeks. He will join a string of recent departures by senior White House officials, including Mr. Trump’s communications director and a powerful staff secretary.

I mean, he’s insane right? Every new character that pops up on Presidential Apprentice is zanier than the next:

What Did I Miss While the Power Was Out

Welp…

Trump has started a Trade War:

President Trump threatened a new tax on cars imported from the European Union (EU) on Saturday in response to threats of retaliation against new U.S. tariffs.

The EU said Friday it was weighing potential tariffs against a wide range of U.S. goods in response to Trump’s announcement that the U.S. would impose tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on imported aluminum.

“If the E.U. wants to further increase their already massive tariffs and barriers on U.S. companies doing business there, we will simply apply a Tax on their Cars which freely pour into the U.S. They make it impossible for our cars (and more) to sell there. Big trade imbalance!” the president said in a tweet Saturday.

The head of the EPA (who thinks global warming is fake), also thinks Evolution is an unproven theory.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt dismissed evolution as an unproven theory, lamented that “minority religions” were pushing Christianity out of “the public square” and advocated amending the Constitution to ban abortion, prohibit same-sex marriage and protect the Pledge of Allegiance and the Ten Commandments, according to a newly unearthed series of Oklahoma talk radio shows from 2005.

Trump thinks term limits are a joke:

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says he thinks it’s great that China’s president now holds that office for life and muses that maybe the U.S. will do the same someday.

Trump’s remarks were met with laughter and applause during a luncheon for Republican donors Saturday at his South Florida estate. CNN said it obtained a recording of the remarks.

I’m not even sure what’s going on here but I’m going to go out on a limb and say it’s terrible:

Mister Magoo

In this story about Mueller’s investigation looking into Trump’s attempts to get Sessions to resign is this tidbit:

Behind the scenes, Trump has derisively referred to Sessions as “Mr. Magoo,” a cartoon character who is elderly, myopic and bumbling, according to people with whom he has spoken. Trump has told associates that he has hired the best lawyers for his entire life, but is stuck with Sessions, who is not defending him and is not sufficiently loyal.

Ok, granted, that’s a funny nickname. BUT IT IS NOT SESSIONS JOB TO BE LOYAL TO TRUMP. GAHHHHHHH.
