When the people the administration initially hired were corrupt or incompetent, then they are all fired or quit, who is left who is willing to work for this administration?

We're in the actual dregs of our political class now. There's no depth this administration is incapable of hitting.

Seems like a shallow pool to choose from. Second time he's had to replace a major appointee with another major appointee.

Kelly went from Sec of Homeland Security to Chief of Staff, now Pompeo goes from CIA to Sec of State.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been linked to efforts to get US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson removed from his post for his attempts at mediation in the Gulf states’ feud with the kingdom of Qatar, leaked emails have revealed.

Correspondence obtained by the BBC from the inbox of Elliott Broidy, a major donor of President Donald Trump with millions’ of dollars’ worth of UAE business links, show that he met with Mr Trump in October 2017 and told that the US leader Mr Tillerson was “performing poorly and should be fired at a politically convenient time”.

He also reportedly called Mr Tillerson, the former CEO of oil giant Exxon Mobil, “weak” and a “tower of Jello”, that “needs to be slammed”.

A blow-by-blow account of the meeting was sent to dual Lebanese-American national George Nader, who has recently been speculated to be person of interest in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election which bought Mr Trump to office.


Tower of Jello that needs to be slammed?

It sounds like John Kelly told Tillerson on Friday to expect a Trump tweet but didn't explain what it was.

This doesn't make any sense to me:

He gets escorted out of the White House, and immediately gets hired by the campaign. He's still under investigation!! Wouldn't you wait until that was over?

Honest question, can this country handle another 2 1/2 years of this [expletive]?

The bench is getting really shallow, and it was already full of B-list people to start with. We are heading below replacement level.
