Trump Names Mick Mulvaney Acting Chief of Staff

Trump Names Mick Mulvaney Acting Chief of Staff:  President Trump has named budget director Mick Mulvaney as his acting White House chief of staff, capping off a week of frenzied speculation about who would take over from John Kelly in this key West Wing role.  

Geez, what happened?  They must have had a staff meeting and someone yelled “hey - last one out the door is Chief of Staff!”  Got to admit though, I’m a bit surprised about Mick Mulvaney - I thought someone like Gary Busey, Sarah Palin or Roseanne Barr made a lot more sense for an administration with the type of internal structure Trump has set up. 

Anyway, the White House is now claiming that Mulvaney was actually Trump’s first choice for the position.  Yea, his first choice - right after the 215 other people who turned down the job just before him.  And when asked if he had expected to be offered the job, Chris Christie told reporters “look, we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”  And we all know Christie knows about crossing bridges, 

All I know is, before I’d take a job trying to manage Donald Trump’s affairs, I’d be damn sure my office was equipped with a well-stocked liquor cabinet.  Hell, if I were advising Mick Mulvaney, I’d tell him about the smartest thing anyone can do before going to work for this administration is establish a GoFundMe page to cover all your future legal expenses.

Suppose you gave a party, and nobody came. I hear tRump was so desperate to fill the position, he offered it to Omarosa.  Personally, I was pulling for Jared to get the job – I'd love to see tRump fire him in a couple of months. Mulvaney was so reluctant to take the job, he insisted on keeping his post at OMB, as a fall-back position – that's not a joke.

What's the over/under on his time in office?

Mulvaney looks like a puppet who auditioned for the Howdy Doody job, but got turned down as too unattractive while still maintaining very wooden. What a klutz.

Wonderful, Johnny.
Now I can start my next book: Life and Times of William Proxmire
~no time to wallow, guys~
anything to shed my 'other imposed moniker' as a 'marshmallow journalist';
and I must learn what book influenced Steve Bannon....
Sorry to come off so blirtatious, Monsieur Robish - just dropped another fist full of dollars on the over under and, a beautiful little ol' lady keeps handing up requests on a yellow stick'em for 'Summer Wind' - and I'm rare'n to go with as a perfect prime rib sandwich, to go with ''s only rock n' roll and I like it (like it) yes I do....'
