Trump friend: Priebus ‘in way over his head’

Posted by | February 13, 2017 08:58 | Filed under: Media/Show Business Politics

Those words come from one of conservative media’s most keen observers of national politics, NewsMax’s Christopher Ruddy, who spoke with the Washington Post.

Ruddy publicly argued that Trump should replace his White House chief of staff.

“A lot of people have been saying, ‘Look, Donald has some problems,’ and I think he realizes that he’s got to make some changes going forward,” Ruddy said in an interview with The Washington Post.

Ruddy went on to detail his critique of White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus: “It’s my view that Reince is the problem. I think on paper Reince looked good as the chief of staff — and Donald trusted him — but it’s pretty clear the guy is in way over his head. He’s not knowledgeable of how federal agencies work, how the communications operations work. He botched this whole immigration rollout. This should’ve been a win for Donald, not two or three weeks of negative publicity.”

Ruddy insisted that he was speaking only for himself and not for the president, and he would not reveal whether Trump had confided in him about Priebus, saying the conversation was private.

    It seems like priebus is kind of the only guy there that has any idea on how Washington works, I would think he would be somewhat of an asset. I think they just want to throw someone under the bus so why not him?

    More faux news from Newsmax’ Ruddy. He’s dangling to replace Rinse, wash and repeat.

    “the guy (Donnie) is in way over his head. He’s not knowledgeable of how federal agencies work, how the communications operations work. He botched this whole immigration rollout.”-self inflicted sodomy.

    “Way over their heads” describes the whole Trump team

    They could insert just about any member of the team at the beginning of “… is in way over his/her head.” Problem is, they’re dragging the rest of us down with them.

    Yeah, it couldn’t possibly be Trump’s fault. He’s the greatest who ever was. He’s so great in fact that you’d never think anything could possibly get in the way of him winning and winning and winning till we’re all sick of “winning.”

      You forgot to add “sad” to the end of your message.

    For his other job, Reince only had to wade through shite. In his new job, he needs fins and a snorkel just to get through his busy day. A kind of Divine Justice:

    UNpresident Rump and his entire WH staff are in over their heads. So are the Repulsives in Congress. Bribes, blackmail, and other monetary “gifts” fill the pockets of Eddie Munster and The Turtle plus many others. They should all be locked up!

    What does it say about a party that makes a clean sweep of the house, senate, and WH, but can’t do anything but put out one fire after another …. day after day.
    Day twenty something feels like 8 years already …
