I think it would be interesting if at the next state of the union, the potus announced an abrupt about-face on a current, high-profile topic.

No middle man (except I guess the live communications equipment), just a non-context-twistable statement, from his mouth to everybody’s ears. Something like: “Efective at 0900 EST: All sales of all firearms & ammunition will be prohibited in the United States”.

What would the headlines say? (“POTUS Mutilates The Constitution!”) What would happen if he gave his opposition exactly what they supposedly want? Would they suddenly not want it anymore? Or just not want to discuss the issue anymore?

Maybe the media would create a diversion by featuring a few females to interview that were “former interns”, to claim unspeakable, horrific acts of sadomasochistic abuse at his hands. I mean; anything would be preferable to waiting on the edge of our seats to find out what our next directive from the expert panel of “lashing out” children is.

Maybe the press would report something relevant, instead of causing chaos & then saying “OMG! It’s so chaotic!” At any rate, it would be fun to see how they would react with anything but agreement for getting exactly what they asked for.

Sorry but it’s just getting old. And it’s sad. This level of naivety doesn’t just evolve in one generation.

There is no such thing as a former Trump supporter. They don't exist. They LOVE this guy no matter what he does.

Did this included the latest casualty? The ambassador to Mexico?

Think the buzz is more about those hired / appointed by the Trump Admin.

Hmm, they might smile or jump for joy, and the major media outlets might cover it.

You know, exactly like what happened literally a day ago with Feinstein.

Democrats aren't like Republicans, who have an illustrious history of opposing their own positions and voting against their own bills just because a Democrat had the nerve to agree with them.

Palace intrigue hasn't stopped Trump from implementing 65% of his agenda already. What is the excuse of his predecessors, all 'smart' career politicians? Makes them all look like idiots.

Trump has implemented 65% of his agenda already. He gets more done in chaos than a certain president who had the presstitutes kissing his black arse.

Insults, lies, poorly-sourced conspiracy theories, ... It's as if Trump himself is defending his administration on this thread.

This is the problem with trying to have an honest conversation. If I agree that the staffing has not gone well, even that is not enough. I get grilled about exact names. Maybe you are trying to suggest that everyone who worked for Obama then went out of his or her way to act in Trump's best interest? Geez.
No offense intended, but if you can't offer any names or specific positions, that means saying Obama holdovers are the problem, or part of the problem, is really just an unsubstantiated claim. Unsubstantiated claims are not terribly conducive to honest conversation.

Clearly, a new president is going to want his own people in policy-related roles, but I suspect that some mid-level or lower level employees are just there for a paycheck. Replacing all of them seems like a pretty low priority. If he wants to do it, anyway, fine, but the focus should be on getting the right people in place at the top first.
