Trump Fears He’s ‘Surrounded By Snakes’ So He’s Hiring Loyalists To Keep Him Safe

Paranoia runs deep. Into your life it will creep. — Buffalo Springfield

Donald Trump is sick and tired of disloyalty and so he’s taking action to eliminate it. Trump has found out the hard way that perfection in staffing is a relative concept. People who he blithely sent through the West Wing revolving door a year or two ago are now looking great in retrospect, next to the likes of Rex Tillerson who called him a “fucking moron” or H.R. McMaster who called him an “idiot” and a “dope.” Compared to that, having Reince Priebus, whom he once ordered to kill a fly, back on board is a comfort.

Along with Priebus comes Sean Spicer and Hope Hicks, along with Trump’s former body man, John McInteen, who was fired by John Kelly because he had a gambling problem which led to a security clearance issue. McInteen is set up to head the Presidential Personnel Office, which will give him the power to hire everywhere in the federal government. Here we go with “only the best people,” fascist edition. Axios.

Why it matters: Trump has increasingly become furious with what he sees as a federal government full of “never-Trumpers.” Administration officials tell Axios Trump feels he’s surrounded by snakes and wants to clear out all the disloyal people.

  • Trump sees McEntee as the ultimate loyalist, and he has assigned him the powerful role of picking personnel across the federal government.

What we’re hearing: Trump has been asking for names of people he should fire. Many on the outside are more than happy to oblige.

  • He was furious about former D.C. Attorney Jessie Liu, who he had nominated to serve as the Treasury Department’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes, after hearing from a number of people, including Rep. Louie Gohmert, that Liu was someone not to be trusted.

This is looking like the beginning of Trump’s version of the SS. They were loyalists to Hitler and charged with ferreting out anybody who wasn’t and disposing of them. Let the purge begin.

That’s “Paranoia strikes deep…”, for what it’s worth. Either way, IMPOTUS is genuinely paranoid as well as phobic. Amazing what a tiny amount of self worth is hiding out in that massive ego.

Will never complete. the US remains in its current political form as 1/2 of the Anglo-American world power right up to the day of its being wiped away by the Kingdom of God.

Of course he is surrounded by snakes. Snakes of a feather. Yes I know that snakes don’t have feathers, but these snakes do. Those sleazebags who protect him and follow his every command are a special breed of snakes; Snakes so vile that they too are disliked by other snakes. The current GOP class behaves like they were residents in Slitherin. No! Make that worse than the Slitherin crew.

Well, it would be likely that he is surrounded by snakes. Look what he has been for years , and I’d say some ( many ) , call Trump the biggest snake in the government, along with the great BARR ( snake ) . Trump has become a (huge python), choking the life out of the Democracy we used to call America . So as birds of a feather flock together. So do snakes, breed other snakes, and hangout together. Trump’s problem is he doesn’t really look at himself as the snake he is . He , like the guy… Read more »

It’s not the snakes he should worry about. Even though he’s an idiot he knows that Karma always comes around. And it’s headed his way.

Even the mentally ill and diminished capacity (wearing giant red ties) smell something burning. There’s no place to run. There’s no place to hide. The more you fight and try to pretend it’s not coming, the more obvious it is to everyone that’s it’s just around the corner and that smell is your own hinny on fire.

What’s coming is heat-seeking and smells bull-pucky, and you’re the primary source of both in the neighborhood. So Donny, gird your loins, then bend over and kiss them goodbye, because it’s coming. It’s coming for you.

Come on, this is silly! Trump isn’t worried about being surrounded by snakes . He knows they won’t bite him– he is too poisonous — there is no antidote to his venom. Maybe for the snakes’ sake we can come up with one in November.

That makes me fucking sick and this is IDENTICAL to how Hitler operated-when are all the ignorant Americans going to step back and actually look objectively at what is happening…so sick of the fucking economy as that is EXACTLY what drove Hitler
