The new measure of power in Washington

53 Views
Message 1 of 1

It is becoming painfully apparent that Trump has found himself in a very bad position of his own making. He has mismanaged his own staff to the point they can no longer even pretend to go along with his lack of policies and his "casual cruelties" (to quote Dubya).  So, they are starting to establish distance with the president by showing they are not as incompetent or as ill mannered as he.  Trump was unwilling and now unable to staff up so he is forced to hold on to any staff who will continue to work with him. 

 

How much will Trump take and still keep you in the position is the new power metric in Washington. 

 

The new measure of power in Washington is how far you can go criticizing the president at whose pleasure you serve. The hangers-on and junior players must do it furtively and anonymously. Only a principal like Gary Cohn, Rex Tillerson or James Mattis can do it out in the open and get away with it.
