This has got to hurt.

The Trump Administration is heading for a breakdown like we’ve never seen before, signaled by the erratic behavior of its own POTUS and First Lady.

While Trump continues to fire off ridiculous, unhinged tweets, Melania Trump had her own fiasco yesterday as news broke that the First Lady had called for the firing of Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel, who is an aide to National Security Adviser John Bolton. White House employees later told the media that Ricardel would be fired as per Melania’s request.

That request is now being ignored. According to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Ricardel is still working in the White House today and that the First Lady’s demands have momentarily been ignored by her own staff. CNBC’s Eamon Javers reported:


Sarah Sanders just told me that Deputy National Security Advisor Mira Ricardel still works at the White House this morning and is here today. Asked if that means she will be here for the long term, Sanders said if there are any developments she will let us know.”

This is just insane. The Trump administration is incapable of getting its act together and presenting like a functional, working White House. As there have been various reports of Trump’s staff ignoring his own unreasonable requests in the past, it seems as though the Trump administration is also ignoring the First Lady as well. The entire administration is a disgrace to America, and it seems that even its own staff needs to protect the country from the Trumps.
