  1. I am honestly more than a little surprised he hasn’t just fired the entire government wholesale. Maybe he is waiting for the midterms to be over. It can’t be obstruction of justice to fire Mueller if you fire the entire FBI and IRS and HUD, etc. Easy way to cut social security would be to just fire everyone and turn off the computers and the check stop going out.

  2. Just another version of “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters.” Having decided that the hundreds of thousands of his supporters who are adversely impacted by this decision will “know that his action is good for them,” and he will would not lose any voters, he had no reluctance to order it. The ironic aspect of it all is that he’s probably correct. True believers – cult followers – those that have left their senses, have been known to go so far as to commit suicide. So, rationalizing a pay raise loss ain’t a hill of beans.
