As Mike Flynn departs amid Russia blackmail suspicions, the dysfunction inside Trump's regime is boiling over. There's talk of multiple investigations into multiple staff members, even blaming Obama 'sleeper cells' inside the White House.
Today's New York Times includes yet another exposé of what an increasingly hobbled hot mess Team Trump is. The piece includes a whopper of a quote from one of our nation's senior-most defense officials. Get a load of this.
Army Gen. "Tony" Thomas, leader of the U.S. Special Operations Command.
Gen. Tony Thomas, head of the military’s Special Operations Command, expressed concern about upheaval inside the White House.
“Our government continues to be in unbelievable turmoil. I hope they sort it out soon because we’re a nation at war,” he said at a military conference on Tuesday. Asked about his comments later, General Thomas said in a brief interview, “As a commander, I’m concerned our government be as stable as possible.”
But Mr. Flynn’s late-night departure just added to the broader sense of chaos at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. In record time, the 45th president has set off global outrage with a ban on travelers from Muslim countries, fired his acting attorney general for refusing to defend the ban and watched as federal courts swiftly moved to block the policy, calling it an unconstitutional use of executive power.
The president has angrily canceled a summit meeting with the Mexican president, hung up on Australia’s prime minister, authorized a commando raid that resulted in the death of a Navy SEAL member, repeatedly lied about the existence of millions of fraudulent votes cast in the 2016 election and engaged in Twitter wars with senators, a sports team owner, a Hollywood actor and a major department store chain. His words and actions have generated almost daily protests around the country.
Yep. Or in other words, it's just another Tuesday under Trump.
Then newly-promoted Army Gen. Raymond "Tony" Thomas assumed command of U.S. Special Operations Command Mar. 30, 2016.
Man, there's a lot going on today.

Disney has denied rumors that the Trumpbot in Disney World’s Hall of the Presidents would not have a speaking role due to a combination of the president’s toxic reputation, Disney employees’ animus for him, and Trump’s own unwillingness to schedule a recording session.
