John McEntee, President Donald Trump's former body man who was fired in 2018 amid an investigation into his alleged financial crimes, will lead the Presidential Personnel Office, multiple news outlets reported Thursday.

Former White House chief of staff John Kelly forced McEntee out over issues with the young aide's security clearance. The issues were related to online gambling problems and mishandling of his taxes, the Wall Street Journal reported.

McEntee was also the subject of a financial-crimes investigation by the Department of Homeland Security.

McEntee was reportedly escorted out of the White House in March 2018 without being allowed to collect his belongings, including his jacket. ..........................................................

1. He can't get any halfway competent or honest people to work for him any more.

The bottom of the personnel barrel is being scraped.

3. You want to know what the hell is going on?? Simple:

Inferring from A to B--this sequence of events:

A: John Kelly, former White House CoS, decides that the interests of the nation take precedence over the well-established and generally honorable obligation of discretion as a former WH official. This is obvs not a decision Kelly takes lightly, but the interests of the nation are paramount to him. He begins talking.

B: Within 24 hours, Hope Hicks, Reince Priebus, and Sean Spicer are suddenly back on the WH payroll, where presumably, legal obligations will assure they do not have the option to make such a decision.

Dude, could you BE any more transparent? Well, translucent orange, anyway.


And now McEntee.

He thinks he's being "Machiavellian" or something...

incredulously,
Bright

4. It's all very simple, tRump wants people he can trust (i.e. not rat him out)

He's turning our government into an extension of his mob organization, and Billy Barr is his top enforcer and enabler.

13. He routed outlet drain hose all the way around

and back into the intake system. Closed-loop full recirculating perfection.

It's like the human centipede, but in ouroboros configuration, looping in on itself...

10. Isnt it obvious by now? a mob boss WANTS people capable of breaking laws & doing questionable

deeds without argument or complaint.

THOSE are the qualifications of the job Yall are being naive to write it off as incompetence or no one wanting to work for him.

14. I think it's funny that all these people

Just so happened to be available for hiring again in the first place...

None of them managed to get a cushy job in that time? All of them ready and willing to head back to where they left in shame?

15. The cupboard of people wanting to work in the WH

must be down to crumbs so small even a mouse would ignore them.
