Trump’s staff and supporters reportedly distraught

Yesterday CNN’s Chief Political Analyst Gloria Borger reported that President Trump’s friends and supporters are increasingly worried about his ability to right his floundering presidency.

The same network’s Editor-at-Large Chris Cillizza said that the White House staff is miserable, repeatedly taken by surprise by Trump’s latest actions, public statements, and tweets. Their efforts to paint whatever Trump did as reasonable (for example, asserting that he fired FBI Director Comey on the recommendation of the top two people in the Department of Justice) routinely get blown up by Trump’s own contradictory remarks (in that case his assertion that he was motivated by annoyance with the FBI’s investigation of Russian involvement in the 2016 election and that he has decided to fire Comey no matter what the DoJ recommended). Others have described staffers as hiding in their offices, and journalists have described hearing people in the White House shouting at each other.
