Trump Fires the Acting Attorney General

After the Acting Attorney General refused to defend his Executive Order, Trump fired her.

President Donald Trump fired acting Attorney General Sally Yates on Monday night, hours after she said the Justice Department would not defendTrump’s executive order on immigration.

Yates had determined the order could not be defended in court.  So Trump fired her.

This act is Nixonian at its worst.

    Republicans should never be forgiven for letting things go this far. Mr. “You’re Fired” should be in a hospital, not the oval office.

    Rasmussen poll. Conservative leaning historically..Time will increase this as his success mounts.

    It’s early, he has yet to purge the obama scum..the toilet is still swirling before the pipe..

    All of Trump’s nominees so far are unqualified, evil, or have lied in their confirmation hearings. Sometimes a combination.

      In no way may that be untrue Richard..and we see now that if Trump can keep them in eyes view they are no threat to us..that would be the thing a guy like Andrew Jackson might do. Trump is so less impressed by the offices of government than the ability to defend the People’s interest more to the degree than any recent presidents who favor practically anybody besides Americans..I might use the Flint example all the way through of empty promises and democratic failed leadership.

      So far he has told those basically raping the US taxpayer that their charges are too high and we aren’t paying that. The most recent was big pharma plainly told and federal purchasing program mainly medicare buying their drugs can negotiate and the prices are too high and are going to come down..see what they do.

      It is clear enough Trump is keeping his own counsel on most things and as in high business telegraphing little of his future plans..The MSM is out of the loop..and there is no claim to any press he must submit to, he can disperse his message in numerous and he does. I believe the future ass kickings of sacred cows has only just begun.

        So you believe Trump is deliberately appointing bad cabinet members just so he can keep an eye on them? From here it looks like kakistocracy.

    Orrin Hatch is such a statesman when he doesn’t get his way.

    Sen. Orrin Hatch blasts Dems for acting ‘like idiots’ in holding up Trump nominees

    “I’m really tired of this type of crap,” Hatch said as Republican senators sat down Tuesday morning only to be greeted by an empty Democrat side of the room. “I mean, my goodness, there’s no excuse for it.”

    Well, except for this one, you stand-out, on-call hypocrite:

    “We have great concern that Senator Hatch is asking us to vote on two nominees today who have out-and-out lied to our committee,” Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown said at a news conference.

      “Keep your friends close, your enemies closer”…Trump doesn’t want wars, doesn’t want the giant ripoff to continue.

      After all this fake to stop him..do you think he is faking? Look around at your party. Figure that might well be a mistake.

    Well Richard, so far it is not.

    He has called out the MIC (the Boeing flap) AND Big Pharma (prices have to DROP, as Medicare is the biggest customer, drop a lot he said).

    As both these industries have been patently fucking us the American Citizenry in PLAIN SIGHT along with the collusion of democrat hacks and repuke mooks in a pretend 2 party duopoly fraud. These are very welcome statements!!

    Best stuff I have heard on the matters. Ever.
