    More than 40 high-level people have fled or been fired from the trump administration in its first year, and even more are headed for the exits. They know what’s up. He’s dirty. He’s guilty. There’s no use in sticking around.

    According to two officials, Trump’s decision to launch a potential trade war was born out of anger at other simmering issues and the result of a broken internal process that has failed to deliver him consensus views that represent the best advice of his team.

    On Wednesday evening, the president became “unglued,” in the words of one official familiar with the president’s state of mind.

    A trifecta of events had set him off in a way that two officials said they had not seen before: Hope Hicks’ testimony to lawmakers investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, conduct by his embattled attorney general and the treatment of his son-in-law by his chief of staff.

    Trump, the two officials said, was angry and gunning for a fight, and he chose a trade war.

    Unglued? Angry? Gunning for a fight? Thankfully he chose a trade war and not the big red nuclear button… but what about the next time he becomes unstuck?

      It’s all blow, you’d do better following what he’s doing, rather than what “sources” are saying about him. Trump is a ring master, and the clowns are frenzied.

        A few of this week’s wounds to trump – all inflicted from within:

        – zig-zag comments on gun control
        – an announcement on steel tariffs that caught his own economic team by surprise and sent the Dow plunging
        – his ongoing battle with his attorney general
        – reports that foreign governments were scheming to exploit the inexperience and financial vulnerabilities of son-in-law Jar-Jar (and what a can of worms is opening up there)
        – WH lost Hope

        Some ringmaster – no amount of spin from his supporters changes the reality that trump’s administration is in utter self-inflicted chaos. And if you seriously believe that trump is ring-masterly in his behaviour then you’re as deluded as Alan and David.
