President Trump wasted little time after the midterms to preview what the next two years will bring to Washington.
In the most public forum — a White House press conference — the President ripped CNN’s correspondent Jim Acosta for brutish behavior towards his press staff.
An hour or so later, he fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appointed Matt Whitaker as Acting AG as announced on Twitter.
“We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States. He will serve our Country well,”
A few hours later Acosta’s White House press credentials were pulled for his press conference outbursts.
The Sessions firing created a Democratic firestorm on the future of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, since Whitaker is on record as saying there was a need to choke of Mueller’s funding since the wide-ranging probe is going nowhere.
It’s been a couple of years since we had “Fast and Furious” associated with the White House, but the next two years will be filled with spontaneous acts that will create screaming headlines and draconian reactions in the liberal press.
Take the Sessions firing. So many Democratic leaders and former Obama administration officials came out with “Constitutional crisis” and “crossing a red line” comments on the fate of the Mueller probe that it showed a talking points email blast must have went out to the rank and file to plaster all over Twitter and cable TV.
Let’s see what happens today to wipe out any and all reactions to yesterday’s news. I have a sense that the next two years will be exciting and spellbinding and will change the face of American politics forever.
