The White House hasn’t confirmed it, but WaPo is reporting that national security adviser H.R. McMaster will be the next member of the administration to be shown the door. While this is a particularly sensitive and important job, turnover at the White House is nothing new. But the WaPo story has some pretty incredible quotes, even by Trump-era standards. “Some in the White House have been reluctant to oust McMaster from his national security perch until he has a promotion to four-star rank or other comfortable landing spot. They are eager to show that someone can serve in the Trump administration without suffering severe damage to their reputation.” And, “Trump has sometimes expressed confusion about what agencies and secretaries are in charge of what duties.” And, [Senior Aides] “appear almost as characters in an absurdist farce — openly joking about whose career might end with the next presidential tweet. White House officials have begun betting about which staffer will be ousted next, though few, if any, have much reliable information about what is actually going on.”

+ Meanwhile, the WSJ reports that the president has declared a truce … with his own Chief of Staff (North Korea, by comparison, should be a breeze.)

+ Meanwhile, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels said she was “threatened with physical harm as part of the effort to keep her quiet.” And Trump is finalizing opioid plan that includes death penalty for dealers. (I’d be happy if they just didn’t name museum wings after them…)
