Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney was recently named acting White House chief of staff, set to replace John Kelly.
He may be gone before he’s given an official title, though.
During the 2016 election, Mick referred to Trump as “a terrible human being.”
President Donald Trump has already expressed dissatisfaction with incoming acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney over his 2016 comment that Trump is “a terrible human being,” Axios reports.
According to Axios, Trump has complained about Mulvaney to multiple people, reportedly saying to one close adviser, “Did you know [Mulvaney] called me ‘a terrible human being’ back during the campaign?”
Mulvaney’s thoughts on Trump’s views of a border wall with Mexico:
From The Hill:
Incoming White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney called President Trump’s views on a border wall “absurd and almost childish” in 2015, according to comments unearthed by CNN investigative unit KFile.
In an interview with a South Carolina radio station in August of 2015, Mulvaney said a physical barrier like a fence or wall at the U.S.-Mexico border would not provide a final solution to immigrants entering the country illegally, according to CNN.
Mulvaney, at the time: “The fence doesn’t solve the problem. Is it necessary to have one? Sure. Would it help? Sure. But to just say build the darn fence and have that be the end of an immigration discussion is absurd and almost childish for someone running for president to take that simplistic of [a] view.“
More on President Trump’s next (and third) chief of staff, Mulvaney:
He most recently served as the Office of Management and Budget director. While Mulvaney was named as an acting chief of staff, he will step down from his role as OMB director, a White House official said. A senior administration official said there is “no time limit” for Mulvaney to remain in the top White House post.
It’s okay to be racist – if your target is white. Agree or disagree?
MSNBC was pretty perturbed that Trump considered “six white guys” to be his next chief of staff.
From Free Beacon:
MSNBC hosts Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi bemoaned the White House’s shortlist of potential candidates to be the next chief of staff being “all white guys.”
Ruhle: “You and I talk about business all the time. That’s a major position, and the six people that they have put out that are short-listed, are all white guys. I cannot think of one single public company right now, that if they had an open senior position like that or a board seat, you would never in 2018, say that the short list is one, two, three, four, five, six white guys.“
Want to know a secret?
Barack Obama had four chiefs of staff over eight years.
All were white men.
A CNN host asked Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper (D), who is considering running for president, if America needs a “white guy” in the White House come 2020.
Camerota: “You know the debate that the Democratic Party is having right now. Is it time to have somebody of color and a woman and somebody younger or somebody more establishment?“
“I think the Democrats across the country are going to help decide that. I’m not sure it’s clear what is exactly needed. But I do know there are a lot of strong options, and that list shows the strength of the Democratic Party. They’re people from all walks of life.“
What a time to be alive, huh? It must be nice to say whatever comes to mind and never get called out for it.
Sure, that’s why the First Amendment exists, and yet conservatives are held to a higher standard on nearly every subject.
Hillary Clinton can blurt out that all black people look alike, whether joking or not, and the media doesn’t bat an eye.
But imagine if President Trump said the same thing. Heck, imagine if a Republican candidate said the same thing.
There would be wall to wall coverage.
How about the time Clinton referred to black men as super predators?
The problem is hypocrisy – plain and simple.
Check out Hillary’s latest where she blasts Trump’s “streak of racism” and “whole package of bigotry” (despite no facts to back her claims)…
Clinton: “This is a person who believes in very little, but he does have visceral responses to what goes on in the world around him. He does have a strong streak of racism that goes back to his early years. I include his anti-immigrant tirades because he characterizes immigrants in very racially derogatory ways, but he was Islamophobic, he was anti-women, he really had the whole package of bigotry that he was putting on offer to those who were intrigued and attracted to him.“
Clinton: “He was, from the very first day of his campaign, raising the [specter] of criminal immigrants and the like. So the anti-immigrant piece coupled with things that he said, the kind of people who supported him, former Ku Klux Klan members and the like, the message that we called the dogwhistle, was incredibly loud. It was: ‘I’m on your side because I don’t like the same people you don’t like. Or at least I’m going to say I don’t and that counts for something.’“
Here are the six words Hillary uttered about black people:
“I know they all look alike.“
Top aides say Clinton may very well run for the White House again in 2020, despite not being able to walk down a short set of stairs by herself.
Who could forget Hillary tripping down stairs while overseas?
What about her epic coughing fits out of thin air?
How about when Clinton needed help up the stairs at Aretha Franklin’s funeral?
According to an MIT professor, bots helped boost Hillary Clinton’s chances of success in 2016 over candidate Donald Trump.
Talk about backfire.
