Top Republican: Trump is So ‘Crazy’ No One Wants to Work at White House
There was a time when the Republican Party was genuinely worth considering as an alternative to the Democrats, as they had members that embraced the values put forward by Eisenhower and Nelson Rockefeller, including fiscal conservatism and social libertarianism. Unfortunately, the influence of Ronald Reagan and the neoconservatives has resulted in the GOP being pushed so far to the right, that anyone that still holds those old views is seen as a “Republican in Name Only” or “RINO“.
Michael Steele, the former chairman of the RNC from 2009-2011, represents this minority. During the 2016 general election, he refused to support Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency, much in the same way Collin Powell did during 2012 with Mitt Romney, as he recognized that Trump represented the “racist underbelly” of the United States.
Now that the country is past Trump’s first 100 days, Steele has decided to speak openly about his thoughts on the inner-workings of the White House, and the news isn’t good. According to Steele, Trump and his staff are having a difficult time finding employees to work for them due not only to Trump’s poor reputation, but also the tense political climate that requires people to push forward contradictory statements:
“Nobody wants to step into a situation where you’re flying by the seat of your pants and don’t know whether what you just said will hold up from one news cycle to the next. Nobody is going to be lining up for positions with that much uncertainty.”
Evidence supporting Steele’s claim can be seen in three ways: the ever-growing list of resignees from the White House, Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s consistent apologetics towards any criticisms thrown at the President, and Fox News’s shifting position on the Russia story. With this type of workplace atmosphere, it is no wonder why people do not want to work there.
