Trump on Charlottesville brawls: “There is no place for this kind of violence”

A Virginia rally of white nationalists that erupted Saturday in violent clashes with counter-protesters brought a rain of condemnation from public officials. Following heated protests on Friday night where 15 were injured, protests became more violent on Saturday with one person killed and 19 injured after a car drove into a crowd of counter-protesters. Since then Trump has been criticized for his tepid response to the heart of the problem because he didn’t condemn the white nationalists for creating the violent climate. The Governor of Virginia issued a state of emergency following the death of one protester and said the “Unite the Right” protest was an illegal protest because they didn’t seek a permit.

Scaramucci was too-Trump for Donald Trump

Even by the standards of the Trump administration, the Scaramucci era was brief to the point of abrupt.
Many who recently learned about the sudden departure of Anthony Scaramucci as Communications Director have been pondering what happened to cause him to leave so quickly. Some Trump supporter theories are that Scaramucci did what he was hired to do and that was to get rid of Reince Priebus, even if it cost them Sean Spicer’s resignation. There are now talks of Spicer returning since he resigned in retaliation to Scaramucci being hired. Others believe Scaramucci was let go because of reports that the new Chief of Staff, John Kelly, wanted Scaramucci out. Then there are others who believe Scaramucci was too much like Trump and would take the spotlight off of Trump in the media and that Trump doesn’t like to be outshined.
I think it could be a combination of all three, but I always believed John Kelly wouldn’t put up with someone like Scaramucci. However, if he expects to bring any order and hierarchy to the White House, Kelly will have to rein in Donald Trump, something that hasn’t been possible since he ran for President.

Senate confirms Christopher Wray, Trump’s choice for FBI

The vote was 92-5 for Wray, a former high-ranking official in President George W. Bush’s Justice Department who oversaw investigations into corporate fraud. Wray, 50, inherits the FBI at a particularly challenging time given Trump’s ousting of Comey, who was admired within the bureau. Wray won unanimous support from the Senate Judiciary Committee last month, with Republicans and Democrats praising his promise never to let politics get in get in the way of the bureau’s mission.

Asserting his independence at his confirmation hearing, Wray said: “My loyalty is to the Constitution and the rule of law. Those have been my guideposts throughout my career, and I will continue to adhere to them no matter the test.”

Trump’s firing of Priebus sent Twitter into frenzy

President Donald Trump’s firing of White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on Friday and on Twitter sent the Twitterverse into a hilarious meme frenzy.
Surprisingly Trump chose DHS Secretary John Kelly as the new Chief of Staff to replace Reince Priebus. Many believe Trump plans to replace DHS Secretary Kelly with current Attorney General Jeff Sessions, since he recused himself on the Russia investigation. Some pundits believe Trump will replace Sessions with someone more loyal to him, like Rudy Giuliani. In the end, Reince is the third top official to resign or be fired in the Trump administration. First, Michael Flynn was fired, then Sean Spicer was replaced by Anthony Scaramucci and now Reince Preibus was replaced by retired general John Kelly. Who will be next to go in this game of thrones and political musical chairs?
