Why the Scariest Nuclear Threat May Be Coming from Inside the White House

Lots of Trump voters had become disaffected by the dysfunction of Washington DC and believed a "disrupter" had a better chance at positive reform as any conservative GOP candidate. We tried to warn you.

Trump turns out to be exactly the president that extremists wanted; one who would tear apart the functions of executive authority and radically realign regulatory matters in the hands of the states. 

As Michael Lewis points out for Vanity Fair, there are many critical functions of the federal government that are necessary to the health and security of all the American people, and that these functions rely on capable, qualified civil servants.

Lewis points out the tragedy unfolding as a result of the Trump presidency; only halfway through his first year. Trump's indifference and incompetence has crushed the personnel ranks of the Energy Department, now headed by the most clueless appointee in the agency's history, former TX Gov. Rick Perry. (Ukrainian pranksters recently engaged Perry in a half hour discussion broadcast to the world. He thought they were representatives of the Ukrainian prime minister. Oh well.)

The same disintegration of talent and expertise is happening in other federal entities: from the State Department to the US EPA and Department of Interior, from the FDA to the USDA. Trump said he would "drain the swamp". Nothing could be further from the truth.

He has created a viper's nest of influences in the White House, all competing for his attention from one second to the next. Meanwhile, the functions of the federal government are crumbling. The GOP Congress is not lifting a finger.

It is a dangerous world, Trump supporters have made it much, much more dangerous.

To my observations, its not so much Trumpism that's wrecking things, its the vice pres Pence and his cohorts that's the primary bad influence and driver of the wrecking ball agenda.

Pence is the viper!!!!!!!!!
Schrumpf is the patsy. Or use full idiot.
