Trump Wants To Fire Intel Inspector General For Doing Too Much Inspector Generalling

"To think, I signed the Whistleblower Protection Act!"

Over the past three months, Donald Trump has suggested, among other things, that Adam Schiff be "arrested for treason", that whistle-blower protections be cast aside and that "spies" within his administration should be executed like "in the old days". And that's just what he's said in public, in front of people with working eyes and ears. One can only imagine what the president says behind closed doors, although given this White House's reputation for leaking like a sieve, it's possible most of what there is to know has found its way to the press. For instance, on Tuesday afternoon, the New York Times said Trump has repeatedly suggested he'd like to fire intelligence community inspector general Michael Atkinson. You remember Mike, right?

That was then, and the number of followers has curiously remained basically unchanged, stuck and not growing.

In that light, trump is still greatly overshadowed by Justin Bieber and 8 other cool people and of course Obama still apparently has 110,000,000+ followers.
