Donald Trump’s White House ‘an absolute effing trainwreck’ behind the scenes, says insider

NPR’s National Security Correspondent Mary Louise Kelly said she had spoken to a White House official on Wednesday, who succinctly described a scene of chaos. “I just reached somebody inside the White House today and asked them to describe, what’s the mood like in there? What’s going on in the halls?” ” Kelly told the NPR Politics Podcast. “And this official said, it is an absolute effing trainwreck”

Ms Kelly also described “a lot of empty desks in the basement of the West Wing,” which is where senior members of the National Security Council usually reside, after many abandoned their roles after clashing with the Trump administration.

    Fasting moving train wreck I’ve ever seen.

    NPR…the American version of CBC.

      Trump should refund the federally-funded Corporation for National Broadcasting. According to the Wiki entry, NPR gets 10% of its revenue form this corrupt agency. The NPR is utterly corrupt.

        And they never mention the huge revenue stream they have from the marketing rights to shows like Sesame Street.

      I almost stopped reading after the first word; NPR but her Wiki page gives an even more detailed CV:

      “Mary Louise Kelly is an American broadcaster and author. A reporter and host for National Public Radio (NPR), and before that at CNN, and the BBC,
      her writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, The Atlantic, and other publications.”

      Pretty much speaks for itself.

      NPR specializes in “in depth” fake news.

    If it is true, then Trump is simply draining the swamp

    Gosh if it comes from NPR it must be true, right?/sarc

    The media have so lost it that they are reporting on their own fantasies now.

    • Hannity’s interview with Paul Ryan is a real eye-opener — he claims that everything is still on schedule (even with Dem obstructions). Worth watching if you want a more eloquent fact-filled description of behind-the-scenes.

      • Brett_McS

        Unlike many I think Paul Ryan is a genuine reformer: he was the only one to touch the entitlements third rail. So I am hopeful that he will follow through with the opportunity they have been given.

    Oh gee, Trump spends the last several months attacking, humiliating ridiculing the media basically calling them liars and democrat party mouthpieces.

    Now, *unexpectedly* (of course) an unnamed (of course) source comes forward and reports that behind the scenes is all a “trainwreck”. Gee what a “surprise”.

    And I, as a member of the public am supposed to believe it.

    Oh, piss off.

        In time for the last episode or two of Victoria!

  • The Trump/train-wreck analogy reminds me of when “eco-warriors” remove railway spikes, misalign a few tracks to derail a bunch of tanker cars, hence causing an oil spill. Then they put out a communique denouncing the harm to the natural environment caused by transporting oil by rail.

    Government desks empty of DemonRats in the White House is a feature not a bug.

    Is the leaker’s whine about the fact that Trump has drained the swamp and cleared the rails?
