Lifelong Dems control the White House, however...
When Donald Trump won the election, someone at Amer. Thinker said that with Hillary as President we would have been playing Russian Roulette with six bullets in the chambers of a six-shooter - and with Trump we are playing that game with three bullets in the chambers. I thought it was prescient then - and it is still prescient. There is chaos here and American voters - and politicians - still need to grow up. But I'd rather have Trump as the starting point than "vote for me, deplorable peasants" Hillary.
To make an analogy with former NY Mayor Bloomberg, he was a lifelong Democrat but a businessman who graduated M.I.T. He was far to sensible for the NY Democrat establishment and he knew it, so he ran as a Republican and got elected and reelected. He had - and has - his faults but he ran a reasonable decent administration and kept crime rates down and the subways running. I have a similar view of Trump with the exception that Trump has a stronger advocacy of America's military.
Well, Ringling Brothers Circus went out of business recently. And apparently the clowns and jugglers have moved to Washington to advice BOTH parties.
Lifelong Democrats Now Control the White House

The conversion is now complete. The Republican Party no longer has any significant influence in, or around the White House.
Twitter feeds report that Reince Preibus is no longer the White House Chief of Staff. Preibus, who accompanied the president on Air Force One to a Long Island event today as his last act, served the president for just over six months.
I would amuse myself by thinking he listened to the tweet of a fellow Wisconsinite and former church-mate when he offered his resignation at almost the exact moment I tweeted him, but Iâ€™ll just enjoy the coincidence.
(Again, please note, Iâ€™m only making the implication in jestâ€¦ EVERYONE has been begging him for months to save face and jump ship.)
CNN reports that Preibus submitted his resignation to the president last night. White House staff appeared surprised as they found out about the change through Twitter and news feeds like everyone else.
His replacement will be General John Kelly (ret.), who has been secretary of the Department of Homeland Security for the first few months of this year will likely have no problem with the management side of running the White House. However, his lack of legislative/political experience may prove to be a liability for a job already handicapped by a president whoâ€™s own management style is so erratic that itâ€™s hard to blame anyone for not being able to control the daily maelstrom coming from the West Wing.
