'You have no idea how much crazy stuff we kill: Trump aides admit why theyre afraid to quit

In interviews with Axios, some aides to President Donald Trump have admitted that they are afraid to quit their White House posts over fears of what he might do without their guidance.

While there have been rumblings that conservatives are reeling more than usual after Trump’s disastrous response to the Charlottesville violence, some White House aides feel a responsibility to stick it out over fears of what Trump might do.

According to Axios, “You have no idea how much crazy stuff we kill,” was the most common refrain, with author Mike Allen noting the responses center “on the urgent importance of having smart, sane people around Trump to fight his worst impulses. If they weren’t there, they say, we would have a trade war with China, massive deportations, and a government shutdown to force construction of a Southern wall.”

More frighteningly others admit in a roundabout way, “We like the power.”

1. Looking forward to these cowards' post-White House job searches

"There seems to be a gap in your employment record starting January 2017. What's that about."

"Uhhh, I was, uh, in prison. Yeah, kind of embarrassing."

"I seem to recall . . . wait, weren't you in the Trump administration?"

"No, no! Hand to God, it was prison!"

3. What a load of BS. These people believe exactly the same as loser donny. If they had any ability for

introspection or empathy they'd never have accepted or lobbied for their position. In all probability their stint in this White House will prevent may of them from infesting both the public and private employment worlds.

Just like the leading Republicans who never lifted a finger to stop any of the racist, xenophobic, harsh anti-womane beliefs from their party these jerks have a lot to answer to.

I hope no one is fooled by puff pieces like this bit of PR fluff.,

Thanks for posting this article; it's always good to know what we're up against.

4. If Trump needs a babysitter so he doesn't do something insane it's 25th Amendment time (n/t)
