President Donald Trump’s national security adviser H.R. McMaster is leaving the White House as early as next month, NBC News reports.

"Next month" means 31-61 days from now. "As early as next month" can be even later. So it's very unlikely that General McMaster will be the next to leave.

It certainly isn't "Fat Bottomed Girls". That was President Clinton's theme song.

Why is it that every time I see the name H.R. McMaster, I think of H.R. Pufnstuf?

I have it narrowed down to:

a) Bob is your best friend
b) Bob wants to tie your mother down
c) Bob is looking for someone to love
d) Bob is under pressure
e) Bob is in love with his car

I was right.

Gary Cohn to Resign as Trump’s Top Economic Adviser

I'll go further and predict that there will be even more staff changes before General McMaster leaves.

Well, the article says he's expected to leave in the new few weeks, so McMaster may beat him to the door.

The exodus continues.

Trump ousts Tillerson, will replace him as secretary of state with CIA chief Pompeo

Add one more, quite abruptly.

Trump's personal assistant, John McEntee, was fired and escorted out of the White House Monday by security after issues with his security clearance. I would add that for some of the people with clearance issues like Jared Kushner, this may soon be a moot point, because he won't have access to much of anything in a federal prison other than a bar of soap.

Hopefully you'll be doing so by repeating what Clinton is saying, making sure the voters know who she is and what she thinks. That should help.


I'm expecting you to go door to door and talk to the white married women and explain to them, that per you and Hillary, they need to quit listening to their husbands and think for themselves. Please get this message through to them loud and clear. Will you do that?

At some point, Republicans may realize they aren't running against Hillary and Obama anymore (or Nancy Pelosi in most cases) and actually have to address real voter concerns. We'll see how successful their current strategy is in Pennsylvania tonight.

And yet another update.... the dominos are falling fast and furious at the Trump White House.

Steve Goldstein, Undersecretary of Public Affairs for the State Department (the #4 official at the State Department), was fired today as well. His offense: contradicting the Trump account of how and why Tillerson was fired.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/13/politics ... index.html

At this point, the rats need scuba gear to get away from the Trump ship of state.

bob has a much more effective strategy in mind. If they don't vote for the democrat, he will sue them. After all, ethical lawyers threaten lawsuits all the time. Especially when their feelings get hurt.

Just one little observation, bob. If trump, or anyone else running for, or in office, in a televised speech used the N-Word to describe anyone or any group, they would be toast. I would be sickened by their bigotry. Hill-babe did exactly the same thing to people who decided not to vote for her. My feelings are not hurt by her. I am sickened by her bigotry. I am even more sickened that she feels free to express such hate on an international stage, and that it is accepted by people like you. That's my opinion, bob. No links to biased websites or cherry-picked "studies" to back it up. Deal with it.

I've already done so at least once. The white married woman in question is my sister. Who lives in Pennsylvania and who told me in so many words that she usually just lets her husband tell her who to vote for. I told her that this year needs to be different and explained why I think that. I believe she was receptive to my pitch.

She's got a lot of friends. Many of whom also are white married women who live in Pennsylvania. And my sister isn't shy so I don't think she'll have any issues sharing whatever conclusions she reaches. --Bob

You expect us to realize it before the media does? Thanks for the confidence.

So now she's letting her brother tell her who to vote for.

I guess you missed the part where I "explained why I think" that this year needs to be different. The goal, of course, was to give her information she can use to make her own decision.

I'm hoping that this year her husband lets my sister tell him whom to vote for. --Bob

Out of curiosity, how many times have you been sickened by Trump's bigotry? And is it more or less of a sick feeling than you get from Hillary bigotry? And do you get more sickened that Trump's bigotry is accepted by a lot of right wingers?

I'm surprised you manage to put in a day's work without calling in sick from all the bigotry flu you're exposed to.
