It’s #FiredFriday in the Reality Teevee program known as The Fourth Reich, and all the morning email thingies are putting down Quatloos on McMaster, the National Security Advisor as being out:
“After firing his secretary of State this week, President Trump is preparing another White House shake-up, this time moving toward replacing national security advisor H.R. McMaster. The timing remains unclear, and two White House officials said Trump might want to keep McMaster until after a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The three-star Army general is seen as a calming force, but he’s also been said to have bored and irritated Trump by meticulously laying out the pros and cons on major policy questions. On Twitter, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the two have a “good working relationship” but conspicuously didn’t rule out the possibility that change could come soon.”
But of course, all is calm and well:
Just spoke to @POTUS and Gen. H.R. McMaster – contrary to reports they have a good working relationship and there are no changes at the NSC.

Assuming Elmira Gantry Huckabee-Sanders is wrong and or lying is always a winning bet, the Villagers believe that the Russian Usurper will put John Bolton into the vacancy:
“Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports that inside the West Wing, the most oft-mentioned potential successor is John Bolton, U.S. ambassador to the U.N. under President George W. Bush.
- Bolton is as hawkish as they come — author of an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal last month with the provocative headline, “The Legal Case for Striking North Korea First.”
- This would be an ironic outcome for Defense Secretary Mattis, who helps moderate the president’s impulses. The SecDef has clashed with McMaster but would face a more forceful National Security Council under Bolton.”
For a guy who claims that Chimpy got it all wrong, Comrade Stupid certainly seems to have a thing for his retreads.
