The Leakiest Ship Ever-- And Mikey Suits Probably Will Have Trouble Sleeping Tonight


Is Señor Trumpanzee going to install a boxing ring in front of his desk in the Oval Office. Like he's always said, his style of management includes having his employees fight with each other. Collegiality is not a trait is encourages. Back-stabbing is. He's a sick cookie... always has been. But what would you expect from someone whose father was a KKK thug and whose grandfather ran a whorehouse? Sunday afternoon, Axios' Jonathan Swan posted a really hilarious Age of Trump leak: Stunning Oval Office leak: Aides fight in front of Trump-- about leaks.
Shortly after word leaked that Kelly Sadler had taken a nasty shot at John McCain, President Trump convened a meeting in the Oval Office for a tiny group of communications staffers, according to sources familiar with the gathering. Sadler, Mercedes Schlapp, Raj Shah, and John Kelly all gathered in front of the Resolute Desk for a conversation with Trump about the leaking problem. They were the only people in the room, though the door to the outer Oval was open.

The president told Sadler she wouldn’t be fired for her remark. He added, separately in the conversation, that he’s no fan of McCain. Then Trump, who had grown obsessed with the leaking problem, told Sadler he wanted to know who the leakers were. Sadler then stunned the room: To be completely honest, she said, she thought one of the worst leakers was Schlapp, her boss.
Schlapp fought back like a mad dog and Sadler ratted out several other White House staffers for leaking as well. Eventually someone leaked the whole mess to Axios, the best place to go with White House gossip that will instantly be read by everyone in DC. Several people with enough connections to be listened to seriously have told me that Trump himself is getting all this crap leaked. Does that illustration above look more like a White House leaking or more like a White House crying?

You can't count this as a leak, per se, but a crazy pair of Trump tweets this evening seems to have sunk felon Mikey Suits' campaign to reclaim his old congressional seat in Staten Island and south Brooklyn (NY-11). There's plenty of speculation that either Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy or Rudy Giuliani talked Trump into endorsing Dan Donovan over Grimm.

Grimm tweeted back: "All the endorsements in the world can’t change the facts: Donovan has failed to pass even one substantive bill into law, and has voted against President Trump every time it’s mattered-- from failing to repeal Obamacare, to banning sanctuary cities, and even against tax cuts," the tax cuts that Donovan voted against despite the moron-in-chief claiming otherwise ... in his Adderall-fueled tweet.

Dan Donovan tweeted too:
