Rumor has it DNI Coates will be the next to go....and the problem is, whenever trump dumps someone, he replaces them with an acting whatever so no vetting, and someone who is far worse than who they've replaced.

Awful.

I see some who aren’t necessarily slime balls but are totally unqualified for their jobs

Do they have to go one by one? We can’t boot all of them at once? More’s the pity.

I keep wondering what will happen when Pence is let go. In the book he will write how much will he reveal or will it be only pipedreams.

Especially as it currently looks like a Trump family member might replace him. I think he will be let go but that family member will be held until 2024.

"he replaces them with an acting whatever so no vetting, and someone who is far worse than who they've replaced."

this is the crucial issue. SO dangerous. Even if you have complaints or reservations about how our government is run, this issue, and our here and now, is horrifying in its implications.

I'm sorry I may be out of the news loop, but which family member could replace Pence and why? Just on the surface, a family member being VP is all sorts of wrong. Yeah, yeah I remember Bobby, but this is P and VP. All sorts of wrong.

I love that Melania is in this rogues' gallery, so apt. I wonder what the odds are on her serving her entire term?

Some think Coats will be next, leaving our military Intelligence vulnerable.

It’s funny you say that pap when it is Trump who gets on TV every chance he gets and throws shade on Biden and everyone. He didn’t say anything bad about Epstein though, did he? I wonder why? Just distanced himself.

Pap, It would be good if you made a comment on the topic, which is how many of Trump's gang has guit or been fired, rather than make a non sequitur slur.

DeVos and Carson head departments Trump doesn't care about so they're safe.

I had forgotten all about Rick Perry. Now there's a newsmaker!

Trump Has Now Had More Cabinet Turnover Than Reagan, Obama and the Two Bushes

Donald Trump has now had more turnover in his Cabinet in the first two and a half years of his presidency than any of his five immediate predecessors did in their entire first terms.

According to data collected by the Brookings Institution, the resignation of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta marks the ninth Cabinet member to leave the Trump Administration, one more than the previous high under President George H.W. Bush.

The others who have left: Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen as well as her predecessor, John Kelly, who left Homeland Security to become White House chief of staff and then left that job as well.

The list does not include Energy Secretary Rick Perry, who reportedly has plans to leave.

By comparison, six Cabinet secretaries departed during Reagan’s first term, eight during H.W. Bush’s presidency, four during Clinton’s first term, two during W. Bush’s first term and three during Obama’s first term.

I am surprised that the number of "acting" officials does not bother the Republicans. Non sequitur slurs seems to be all they have.

The number of "acting" cabinet members is just one more M.O. of Trump. It is just one more way he is ruling by chaos. Keep 'em guessing gives him ultimate control (or so he thinks). I agree with Batya that this is an incredibly dangerous policy for our nation.

Still have, apparently, Joaniepoanie...

And we can add Ocasio-Cortez, Pelosi and many other good women to that list as well.

Oh well, it takes one to know one, as they say.

Trump could replace Bolton with someone worse?

Surprised that Wilbur Ross isn't up there. He makes more sense than Hannity.

@Batyabeth - conspiracy theory says that the reasons trump takes Ivanka on his little international junkets where she tries to ingratiate herself (think recent G20) and she was recently handling talks about Brexit with Liam Fox, Britains trade secretary is because trump is going to dump Pence and appoint Ivanka as his running mate. Then if he is re-elected he will soon resign and she will become the first female President. Yecch!

This link is from the Guardian and talks about LIam Fox apparently apologizing to Ivanka for Darroch's remarks re trump

And all the "love" they show Democratic lawmakers, and the liberal forum members

Hah! It's a perfect scenario! And then Ivanka can pardon her daddy. I'll bet they've actually considered this possibility.
