The uproar over President Donald Trump’s continued existence in office has escalated even more in recent days over the sacking of chief of staff Reince Priebus, the foul-mouthed tirade by the new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, the defeat of the Obamacare repeal bill and the questioning of Jared Kushner by the Senate Intelligence Committee in the ongoing investigation over the suspected collusion by team Trump with the Russian government.
The sacking of the ineffective Reince Priebus was probably the right move – replacing him with the effective and focused Homeland Security head, retired General John Kelly. Trump’s public bullying of his Attorney-General Jeff Sesions as “weak” and “beleaguered” was appalling. The Scaramucci tirade was totally beyond the pale and besmirched both the office of president and the man who had appointed this verbal thug. The defeat of the Obamacare repeal bill was a serious setback. The questioning of Jared Kushner went precisely nowhere.
The media is engaged in a competition for the most hyperbolic imagery to convey the full horror of the Trumpian apocalypse. According to the New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd: “The dark pandemonium of the Trump West Wing has become a wormy scene worthy of Hieronymus Bosch.”
But this horrified fascination with the wormy hell that is the Trump White House does not explain the indifference of the mainstream media towards a swamp from which it averts its gaze — because this points to the fact that, rather than Team Trump being involved in situations that undermine the security and constitution of the United States, it is the Democratic Party that is increasingly in the frame.
