Is it really worth it?
Is it really worth putting up with a maniac for a boss in order to be a VIP in the White House?
Is it worth putting up with the tantrums and the hissy fits?
Must be, since Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon are still there today.
Before heading off to his so-called “winter White House” in Palm Beach, Florida, on Friday, President Donald Trump summoned some of his senior staff to the Oval Office and went “ballistic,” senior White House sources told ABC News.
The president erupted with anger over the latest slew of news reports connecting Russia with the new administration — specifically the abrupt decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign.
And apparently Trump didn’t care who saw this juvenile display.
With Marine One waiting on the South Lawn, Trump and his team engaged in an animated exchange — captured by press pool cameras peering in through the windows from the White House South Lawn. Trump then left the office for the helicopter, taking the hands of his young grandchildren and joined by his daughter Ivanka and Kushner.
So, naturally, Trump had to continue the tantrum.
As President Trump was in the air aboard Marine One headed for Air Force One on the tarmac at Joint Base Andrews, a last-minute phone call was made from the West Wing to the team on board the president’s plane with a directive to remove Priebus and Bannon from the manifest, sources said. They would not be coming to the Sunshine State.
So … what happens if some huge crisis develops somewhere in the world while Trump is taking it easy at Mar-A-Lago and his senior staff are all back in Washington
