To say that the Trump White House is a bit chaotic would be a genuine understatement.
I don’t mean this is any sort of negative way, and the economy certainly hasn’t shown any signs of being bothered by the West Wing bickering, but there is some undeniable tension at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as of late. This could stem from any number of anti-Trump tirades being launched from the left side of American society, including a plethora of “resistance” plots that have been hatched and subsequently quashed from within the White House itself.
Through it all, First Lady Melania Trump has remained the epitome of class and etiquette. But cross Lady Trump, and you will suffer the consequences…
A feud with the first lady’s office is expected to cost a senior national security adviser her job after she sparred with East Wing staff and other key members of the Trump administration.
The dispute spilled into public view in extraordinary fashion on Tuesday when the first lady’s office released a statement calling for deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel’s ouster as reports surfaced that President Donald Trump would fire the official.Trending:
A White House official confirmed to CNN that Trump has told people that Ricardel will be fired. But the official said she has been given some time to clear out her desk. It was not immediately clear when she would officially make her exit.
And Melania sent Ricardel off with one of the most brutal sentiments ever committed to stationary.
“It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that (Ricardel) no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House,” the first lady’s communications director Stephanie Grisham said in a statement on Tuesday.
The statement amounted to a stunning public rebuke by a first lady of a senior official serving in her husband’s administration. It came after reports surfaced earlier Tuesday indicating Ricardel would be pushed out of her post after less than seven months on the job.
Ricardel’s offensive actions have yet to be publicly disclosed.
