As we noted previously, the Fourth Reich has called back some advisors who left or who were You’re Fired’ed to hold some interesting jobs. ‘Sporting Life’ Johnny McEntee, who was walked out for being a security risk due to his gambling debt (they didn’t even let him pack up his office or even take his jacket), recently returned to 1600 to head the presidential personnel office, and Axios tells us that he’s already making his mark:
Johnny McEntee called in White House liaisons from cabinet agencies for an introductory meeting Thursday, in which he asked them to identify political appointees across the U.S. government who are believed to be anti-Trump, three sources familiar with the meeting tell Axios…
- McEntee told staff that those identified as anti-Trump will no longer get promotions by shifting them around agencies….
- McEntee’s job already is being tested with Trump’s decision to tap Grenell, a staunch loyalist who has never worked for an intelligence agency, as the Acting Director of National Intelligence. Trump has said it’s only a temporary move until he names a new permanent director.
- But his efforts to put a Republican congressman in that job, thereby plucking him out of a Senate race with a complicated GOP primary, aren’t going smoothly.
So instead of identifying talent to hire, they are conducting a pogram to rid the gubmint of people with questionable loyalty to Hair Füror.
Most head hunters are looking to fill spots, this one is looking to put heads on pikes.
