    At least he had the dignity to meet Trump in person and offer resignation.
    **Edit: I meant other way around. Coffee injection not taken effect yet.**


    The big issue is the mostly empty staffing in the department.
    Reports are they are hundreds of people short to implement Trump policies (what few Trump issued).
    This is is having to fill one more.

    In itself, it is not all that much.

    Against a background of dysfunctional chaos, with staff positions unfilled, others unsure of their position, authority, or power, some already having been fired or asked - or offered - to resign (Sally Yates, General Flynn, James Comey), with more dismissals, resignations, and firings undoubtedly to come, I think it is a portent.

    Trump does all his communications through Twitter who else does he need?

    I signed up for a Twitter just to follow Trump to see if people were posting the occasional stupid post or to see if all of his tweets are cringe worthy.

    He's the only person I follow and I've lost like 10 lbs from vomiting so often. I really hate his use of Twitter.

    It will be his downfall. Truly convinced. He thinks it's a way to "clear the air" from MSM - but it is actually kerosene.

    Count me impressed.

    Actually, I follow Mr Trump on Twitter; unfortunately, one must keep abreast of what he - insert appropriate verb here - says/whines/writes/thinks/feels.....

    glad you are losing weight, sadly I think trump feels "justified/verified/glorified" due to the amount of followers he has, in America we glorify stupidity and well, here we are.
    MSM sucks.

    I'm really surprised that no one in his circle has been able to convince him to knock it off. Nearly every tweet he fires off does more damage to his administration. He's his own worst enemy and he's completely oblivious to that fact.

    Does Hillary Tweet as well. If she does maybe I can get back into my 34s by labor day.

    I couldn't bring myself to "follow" that account. Luckily, I found @burnedyourtweet, which gave me a chuckle before having that "vomit in my mouth" taste. Sadly, while you can still view previous tweets, it hasn't been active the last few weeks.

    For those who haven't seen it, here's a sample in action:

    Actually, I have just read (on Twitter) - a screen grab was posted to serve as confirmation on the part of the comedy writer who tweeted the piece - that he - Mr Trump - actually takes the time and trouble to block people he dislikes, or whom he thinks have hurt his feelings.
