IS TRUMP A BACKSTABBER?
Umm, those days of yore. Gone are those Good Old Days when Trust was a major factor in people lives where you were compensated for your work efforts. Not, if you work for Trump.
It has been established that working for Trump has a short shelf life, a limited lifespan of whatever Trump capricious behavior decides at any given time, in other words is more of a one way short term than a long term endeavor and can even be right down hazardous not only financially but to your future in general.
Take for example all of the different issues confronting the Trump Administration and Associates, even if you were not the target of Investigations or involved on any shady dealings the fact that you work within a circle of individuals that may or may not be involved on a Federal Investigation which may come under indictment may be enough to require you to testify before a Court, the House or Senate. All of a sudden you’d have to lawyer up and lawyers, in the Washington DC area are not cheap, it will break a proverbial Piggy Bank wide open draining finances substantially.
But that is the least of your problems. While you may think that working for Trump has you in a good footing the ground beneath your feet could turn into Quick Sand faster than you can say WTF! All of a sudden you’ll find yourself Outside Looking in, into Trumps Experiment of an Alternate Fantasy World at which time and much too late you come to the realization that you’ve been “Trumped!”
Trump so far has shown that as much as he always insist on others pledging Loyalty to Him that’s a favor that he does never returns in kind in other words you have to be Loyal to Trump but Trump does Not have to be Loyal to you it’s a one way take it or leave it ticket to help boost his image and ego while taking all the credit and sacrificing nothing,
Good examples of Trump’s short leave pat on the back only to Backstab them a bit latter:
During the Elections Trump praise left and right FBI Director James Comey for going after Hillary’s e mails and until recent had nothing but good things to say about him. Then Trump asked Comey to drop Michael T. Flynn with a; “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go” at an Oval Office meeting. In February Trump also reportedly asked Comey to pledge his loyalty three times during a dinner in late January 2017 Documented by Comey’s on a memo immediately afterwards. When Comey did not respond favorably to Trumps demands he got fired
Several people who have spoken with the president told Philip Rucker of the Washington Post that Trump has been quick to blame his staff for the blow-back from axing Comey Privately, Trump has lashed out at the communications office at the time led by press secretary Sean Spicer and communications director Michael Dubke and has spoken candidly with advisers about a “broad shake-up” that could include demotions or dismissals. Job Security?
Trump fired Acting Attorney General Sally Yates. A key official involved in the investigation of national security adviser Michael Flynn. Yates warned White House Counsel Donald McGahn that Flynn lied to Vice President Pence about his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, later testifying that she expected the White House to take action because Flynn was “compromised” and potentially “susceptible” to blackmail, in the Justice Department’s estimation. As a “Thank you” Yates was fired even though you can say she had it coming because of her refusal to back Trump’s travel ban, according to the New York Times.
Over a month later Trump fired Preet Bharara a U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York since 2009. He was reportedly investigating Rep. Tom Price then Trump nominee for Health and Human Services secretary Unexpected move because in the weeks after the election Trump met with Bharara and asked him to stay in his post when the new administration took office, Bharara agreed and then was fired the day after the prosecutor refused to return a call from Trump he said on an ABC News’ interview. Bharara said he viewed direct contact from the president to himself, as a law-enforcement official, to be an inappropriate breach of protocol and reported it to the office of Attorney General “Jeff Sessions” on March 9. “Twenty two hours later, he was fired on March 10 by Sessions.
Trump fired Angela Reid as the White House usher. The Washington Post first reported that Angella Reid had been relieved of her duties on May 5 no reason was made public even though there were reports that Trump wanted a loyalist in that position. She joined the White House in 2011 under then President Obama taking the place of the first African-American to hold the post, Adm. Stephen W. Rochon. While Trump officials said it isn’t uncommon for staffs to transition between administrations, it is unusual for a chief usher to be dismissed reported USA Today.
Chris Christie an early supporter of Trump, it came as a surprised when he was unceremoniously let go some said fired from the Trump transition team. A former U.S. Attorney, Christie once prosecuted the father of Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner some said that was the reason he had fallen from favor. Politico reported that Trump was concerned about “Bridgegate,” scandal in which the governor’s former top aides were convicted after accusing Christie “of knowing more about the shutdown of the George Washington Bridge than he let on however Christie came back. Appointed to lead a task force to combat the opioid epidemic, after which he got Axed, again.
White House National Security Council Director Craig Deare was fired for making fun of Trump, behind his back. I threw that one in, as a Bonus!
Enter Campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, whom was slapped with a misdemeanor battery charge by Florida police for an alleged altercation with a female reporter at a campaign event as Trump was being scrutinized throughout liberal and conservative circles for unapologetic ally defending Lewandowski even after police released surveillance video showing an interaction between the campaign manager, the former Breitbart reporter and Trump. “I’m not saying Corey’s going to be fired or anything because I don’t think he’s going to be, at least not at this juncture,” an unnamed source from the campaign told POLITICO, then Trump fired Lewandowski on June 20th-2017.
What they all have in common? They dared boldly go where not many had dared go to before, defy Trump, rubbed Trump the wrong way (it’s worth nothing that some were investigating Trump, his administration or campaign) or got “Praise by Trump, perhaps a bit too much giving those individuals a sense of “Job” Security, only to be Back-stabbed by Trump shortly after.
And this does not even begin addressing all of those that have currently left the Trump Administration, but in case you are interested, there are many Help Wanted Positions currently available at the White House, any takers? Share, Comment, Blog Below!
