Oh, his ass isn't leaving that place early, that much I'm sure of. Barring a smoking gun - and unless he's as stupidly paranoid as Nixon, we're probably not getting something that concrete - that leaves no one able to protect him, Republicans aren't impeaching their parties President, whether they like him or not.

His re-election chances are harder to predict. Hindsight is 20/20, but 2016 really was a perfect storm for him to be elected. He's not even super popular with conservatives and the displaced factory workers in the Rust Belt - the low key MVP's of putting him the White House - are starting to sound like they're realizing the "outsider" they took a gamble on won't help them either and are giving up. He's got incumbency going for him, as going by history they are typically re-elected, but history would also say a guy like him never would have made it where he did, so who knows. It depends a lot on who they field; if the Democrats try Hillary again, he's got a great shot, anyone else and it's a toss up.

Newsflash for everyone calling the Democrats liberals, socialists et al, you're wrong. The Democratic party is a right wing party. Both major US political parties are right wing, just the Republicans are even further to the right than them.
A lot of us are aware, thanks all the same.

It looks like a lot of hate on this guy cost him the job he chose over his wife. I am surprised.

To be honest, I'm not. This administration is a circus, with positions starting to seem like a revolving door. The only surprising thing to me is that it was this soon, but it looks like that's down to the new Chief of Staff.

What, did it turn out this lapdog (Scaramucci) wasn't White Housebroken? That's one heck of a turnover rate of positions he gets to choose who to hire to fill them.

Well, we do have a president whose primary claim to fame was firing people...

You have a point. I thought the same thing when I saw the latest job vacancy.

And with this latest one lasting just days, I suppose he has no concern about looking incompetent?

Kind of annoying how he likes to go on about unemployment levels when he can't even hire people he'll keep or won't resign, as well as all the vacant positions he's supposedly still yet to fill.

Aaaaand another one is removed. Y'know, the White House is beginning to look like a revolving door of staff-hiring/firing. At this rate nothing will EVER be accomplished.

The bigliest!

This isn't a presidency... his family has just put him in taxpayer funded manchild daycare for a few years.
