Tongue in cheek, just don't bite it off.

In summary, while things are typically disorganized and dumb in the Trump administration, they are now getting disorganized and dumb in a way that has widespread consequences: (More) people in the Middle East dying gruesomely, people losing their paychecks in the U.S. at Christmas, and maybe an unprecedented crisis of government regarding the president’s corrupt debt to foreign powers. #MAGA!

These types of articles are becoming all too common:
Why Mattis Had to Go

On Wednesday, the administration hastily announced a conference call to brief the press on the president’s Syria decision, then struggled to explain what it was and when or how it would happen. The Pentagon pointed reporters to the White House; the White House told reporters to talk to the Pentagon. It was a level of chaos I hadn’t seen in a decade of covering U.S. foreign policy.

Steve Mnuchin, who I guess qualifies as the leading adult left in the administration, apparently just put out a press release that said he confirmed with the CEOs of the six largest banks that they do not have liquidity issues. This is the kind of announcement that made sense in December 2008. It's odd, since it's the exact opposite of reassuring, almost like he wants to alarm the public.
