As the President spent Christmas alone in Washington (poor me) as he wrote in one of his tweets, and his walls of corruption and chaos crumble around him, it is only natural that Trump would lash out, but this time, he is lashing out at everyone.
“I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security. At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy! “
In the last few days, the chaos is epic, even for President Trump that has the uncanny ability to make each meltdown worse than the previous.
General Mattis resigned over his disagreement with Trump withdrawing troops from Syria, a move that only strengthens Russia’s foothold in the region and leads to more logical questions what kompromat does Russia have on the President.
We are experiencing the third government shutdown this year and this one during the Christmas holidays resulting in the National Christmas Tree being turned off and hundreds of thousands of employees without immediate pay.
The stock market has the second worse month in history, only in second place to the Great Depression.
Trump asks a seven year if he still believes in Santa Claus and that to do so is “marginal.”
With a week like that, Trump has to take out his frustrations on someone other than a 7 year old, so at the top of list is General Mattis who per his resignation letter, his last day on the job was in February.

Trump replaced Mattis immediately with Patrick Shannahan who is to start on January 1st. It should be noted that even though Mattis has both feet out the door, he still reported to work on Christmas day.
Next on the list is Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin who has failed to put the brakes on the downward spiral of the stock market. The same stock market the President takes credit for when it is doing well, but when doing poorly, or even catastrophic like this past week… crickets.
Mnuchin spent the last few days before Christmas calling everyone he can think of to let them know the market was strong and the economy was doing just fine. It had the reverse effect which drove Trump insane.
Here’s a question: have you ever had an argument with your partner and you are telling your partner to calm down in your best calm voice? Did it work? The same thing happened to the market.
But Trump isn’t done. Why not fire Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell? Well, because President Trump can’t, but he thought about it.
Finally, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker felt the wrath of Trump and for his handling of the Robert Mueller investigation with Michael Cohen pleading guilty for lying to Congress about the Trump Tower project in Moscow.
Get ready America, it’s going to be a hell of a close to the year.
