It's an interesting theory, but I simply think Trump believes he can now get away with a girlfriend.

It's not a theory. The president is mentally unwell.

Hope Hicks is returning to the WH bc Trump has become unmanageable due to his worsening dementia. It's a desperation move- Hicks may be the only person he'll listen to. He has already crashed & burned. She can't fix the unfolding disaster. She can't create a "dead cat bounce."

Who in the f--- is Tom Joseph? Might as well copy some random poster from the DailyKos.

I see no a priori reason why Donald Trump can't be demented and still cheat on his wife.

Send Nulli. Maybe a fellow brainmush can get through to him.

Looks like Trump wants a wingman or two.

Reagan was shot in the head. His brains were literally scrambled.

Republicans decided he deserved a second term.

Intelligence isn't a trait conservatives value in their politicians.

Incorrect.

Yeah, it was the Alzheimer's that scrambled his brain. Hinckley's Second Amendment remedy got Ronnie Raygun in the chest.

obama surrounded himself with sycophants and Trump should have done that three years ago, but better late than never. Also remember obama replacing the Bush judges, ambassadors, etc.

--Trump installs Loyalists

Oh no! Unprecedented! Impeach now!

Not to change the subject, but I will. Has anybody noticed 45's right eye looks odd? It seems smaller than the left, rather squinting or drooping. Somebody at another site thought it was a sign of a mini stroke or maybe even cause by taking drugs. Just curious.

For good measure, Reince Priebus and Sean Spicer are both coming back onto the WH staff.

Do you feel better now?

This is an outrage. Obama hired political enemies and people he didn't like. who worked against everything he did, and he never fired them! /snark

Jesus. The headline is more loaded than the toilet on a Greyhound bus. Installed? Loyalists? Purge?

LOL. so hysterical.

Hillary would have put her knees behind her ears to be on the inside of that cabal.

Hope Hicks. Less than a pretty face.

Well actually, he did. He didn't fire military leaders just for disagreeing with him. He kept Republicans in charge of some federal agencies and kept people around from the Bush era.

Trump fires anyone who disagrees with him. The turnover from this administration is higher than anyone could have imagined.

I'm not surprised you weren't aware since you prefer 4Chan for your news.

Um...
Hillary was Obama's Secretary of State.
Do they not teach about the Reset Button in St. Petersburg?
Awkward!

Tell that to Michael Flynn.

Disagreement is one thing. Working to undermine is another. Obama kept control by using the Espionage Act as a political weapon. He kept a tight lid on leaks. I'm also sure that he inspired far more loyalty than Trump is capable of because Trump demands it but doesn't respond in kind. Regardless, the leaks coming out of Trump's administration has been an absolute torrent. Some of that is on him being a D-bag. Having said that, if it becomes obvious than an underling as actively working against POTUS the only logical course of action is to remove and replace.

Trump installs Loyalists in top jobs

And what the hell did anyone expect him to do? Appoint a bunch of never Trumpers?
