Only room for one in the spotlight, and that's the soon to be hero of Korea, or so the deal maker thinks. If he fails in this, as he is bound to, I wonder who he will blame first? CNN?

Whoever he blames, and he'll blame somebody, the one certainty is he will never blame himself.

And that's not even all. Within the past hour, from the time of this post, the latest to go is Trump's personal aide John McEntee.

CNN wrote:McEntee was nearly constantly at the President's side.

Kinda reminds me of how Martin Bormann was constantly at Hitler's side.

Longtime Trump aide fired over financial crime investigation

By Kaitlan Collins, Jeremy Diamond and Jeff Zeleny, CNN

March 13, 2018

(CNN) - President Donald Trump's longtime personal aide John McEntee was fired because he is currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes, a source familiar with his firing told CNN.

The charges are not related to the President, the source said.

Minutes after news of his departure broke, the Trump campaign announced McEntee would be joining the reelection effort as a senior adviser for campaign operations.

McEntee escorted from the White House on Monday, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN. Two sources said McEntee was pushed out because of issues with his security clearance, making him just the latest aide to be forced out because of difficulties obtaining a full security clearance.

McEntee declined a CNN request to comment.

"We do not comment on personnel issues," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told CNN in a statement.

McEntee, who joined the Trump campaign in its first months, is the latest of the President's longest-serving aides to leave or announce plans to leave the White House, following the resignation of White House communications direct Hope Hicks two weeks earlier.

McEntee served as Trump's body man during the campaign and into the White House alongside the President's longtime bodyguard Keith Schiller, who left the White House last fall. The role meant McEntee was nearly constantly at the President's side.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the news of his exit.

Trump reelection campaign manager Brad Parscale announced McEntee's hire alongside that of Katrina Pierson, a Trump campaign spokesperson in 2016 who will join the 2020 campaign as a senior adviser.

"As we build out our operations for the 2018 midterm elections and the 2020 reelection campaign, we are pleased to welcome back two outstanding members of our 2016 team," Parscale said in a statement. "We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country."

McEntee is just the latest aide to leave the White House amid issues with his security clearance, after White House chief of staff John Kelly enacted a series of reforms following the scandal involving disgraced White House staff secretary Rob Porter.

Kelly sought to limit access to classified information for aides with longstanding interim security clearances and several aides have since left the White House after it became clear their applications for a full security clearances would not be approved.

Wondering who's heads are next on Trump's chopping block? Have a look. I find it quite significant that tomorrow is the Ides of March.

I'll repeat what I've been saying for months - how would you like to be a history teacher 50 or 100 years from now, trying to explain the Trump presidency to your class?

But don't worry - only 2 years, 7 months, and 19 days until the next presidential election . . .

Trump’s new CIA Director and her secret torture history in Thailand.

Gina Haspel, a veteran CIA clandestine officer picked by President Donald Trump on Tuesday to head the Central Intelligence Agency, is a controversial figure, backed by many in the US intelligence community but regarded warily by some in Congress for her involvement in the agency's black-site detention facilities.

Haspel ran a secret CIA detention facility in Thailand codenamed "Cat's Eye" but better known as Detention Site Green. Two suspected members of the al Qaeda militant group were subjected to waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques at the facility.

Three years later, still during Bush's presidency, she helped carry out an order to destroy videotapes of the waterboarding at the Thai site, which simulates drowning and is considered a form of torture, according to those people.

Such facilities are called "black sites" because their existence is unacknowledged by the US government.

Every Thai government and army commander since 2002 has denied there every was such a site on Thai territory - which is the point of the very existence of "black sites".

The exact location of the Cat's Eye site has remained secret despite hundreds of attempts by Thai and foreign media to discover its actual whereabouts.

Ahhhh, a new Trump appointee. Perfect - a woman who ran a secret torture chamber and then tried to destroy evidence of it. Why do I think she's probably a mistress, complete with whips and chains, deeply into B&D - and she ain't the one in bondage?

Maybe we should start a pool to guess how long she'll last before Trump fires her too or she resigns . . .

I'm convinced that Trump is firing some of his staff members knowing full-well that they plan to resign just to mask the reality of the situation.

This thing with Stormy Daniels could escalate into something much bigger than some suspect. She's an even match for him when it comes to gutter strategies, daring, ruthlessness and stab-him-in-the backism, and that lawyer she hired has brass balls and just champing at the bit.

Apparently six more women have now come forward with similar accusations against Trump. His wife and kids must be thrilled to death.

Would it come as any surprise if by the time this is done it turns out that Trump surpasses Harvey Weinstein - probably by miles?
