Trump says daughter, son-in-law played no role in departure of White House counsel McGahn

Source: WaPo

President Trump went on Twitter on Thursday to deny news reports that his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner played a role in the announced departure of White House counsel Donald McGahn.

Trump announced Wednesday that McGahn, a low-key, 50-year-old lawyer who has been at his side since the early days of the 2016 presidential campaign, would leave his post at the White House in the fall.

“Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner had NOTHING to do with the so called ‘pushing out’ of Don McGahn,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Thursday morning. “The Fake News Media has it, purposely, so wrong! They love to portray chaos in the White House when they know that chaos doesn’t exist-just a ‘smooth running machine’ with changing parts!”



Multiple news organizations reported Wednesday that there had been friction between McGahn and the president’s daughter and son-in-law, both of whom are advisers at the White House, which has experienced unusually high turnover under Trump.

6. Which really means

They were involved too with his being run off after they found out he was talking all along with Mueller, and means Mcgahn knows everything on them also.

19. If you're always changing parts....

then your machine isn't running at all, dipshit!

A "smooth running machine" is a machine that is well made from the beginning (and yours certainly wasn't! ) is well lubricated (by the sweat and labor of it's workers), and is constantly being examined for any defects in the final product. There are so many defects in your "final product" (tax cuts for the rich, the Korea foul-up, Russians owning your administration, trade wars, to name a few) that the machine is utterly useless and should be scrapped. That means you, Donnie Dipshit. You were nothing but scrap before you took your first step inside the White House, and you've gotten so much worse ever since.
