Anderson Cooper: “White House Officials Are Fearing The President’s Anger”

One day from the release of the redacted Mueller report Donald Trump continues to be on the defensive on Twitter.

This followed several similar tweets Tuesday. As CNN’s Anderson Cooper said, “For someone who says he’s not worried about what’s in the Mueller report, the President has a lot of current and former staffers worried about being named in it, and potentially facing his wrath.” CNN is also reporting that a GOP source says Trump “is going to go bonkers” after the report is released.

Watch what else Cooper said above.

In Times Of A National Emergency…

The United States has:

  • An acting Secretary of Defense
  • An acting Secretary of Homeland Security
  • An acting White House chief of staff
  • An acting Secretary of the Interior

And the “acting” status may not change for some of the positions. From the Washington Post:

On average, though, Trump’s agencies have spent much more time being led by acting directors. He’s had 388 days on average in each of the years of his presidency in which a department was led by an acting director.

So what’s behind this? One reason may be to avoid nasty Senate confirmation fights. And “acting” ends up being like a job tryout.

From Bloomberg:

“It’s now been more than a year since Trump had a full, confirmed cabinet, something he’s only had for about four and a half months of his presidency. He’s unlikely to change that any time soon.”

In the end, Kirstjen Nielsen joins a very long list of former Trump administration officials.

After Nielsen’s departure there remain only three women in Trump’s cabinet: Gina Haspel at CIA, Elaine Chao at Transportation and Betsy DeVos at Education, and DeVos is most likely the next to go.
