The term actual comes from an anti-Irish slur, so it's interesting that it's common there.

Can't wait to see what the next Russia distraction will be, and which major character they are going to kill off this week. Game of What?

Quick, how many can name, off the top of their head, any staff members from some of the previous administrations? Who was Obama's communications director? Who was Bush's or Clinton's chief off staff? Who was Bush's chief strategist/advisor? Who was Clinton's press secretary?

The only one that I can think of is Ari Fleischer, from the George W. Bush administration.

The fact that we know all these names from Trump's White House, from Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Anthony Scaramucci, Stephen Miller, Sean Spicer, Reince Priebus and Jared Kushner really says a lot about the quality, or lack thereof, of the people Trump surrounds himself.

Wowee, that was quick.

"Hot mess" does not even begin to describe this administration at this point. Holy shit, this is nuts.

I don't know, there are at least a few names that get to be known widely, at least among people who follow politics, from each administration...

Clinton
George Stephanopoulos - Communications Director
Dee Dee Myers - Press Secretary
Rahm Emanuel - Senior Advisor

Bush
Tony Snow - Press Secretary
Nicole Wallace - Communications Director

Obama
Rahm Emanuel - Chief Of Staff
Josh Earnest - Press Secretary
David Axelrod - Senior Advisor

But yes, this administration is a trainwreck.

If you ask me, it's on purpose. Bet ya he's happy to make a name for all of them.

Agreed, but I was thinking more about casual observers. You know about these people because you follow politics, but it's rare for White House staff to become household names for the public at large.

I would say it's more like a horrible burning plane crash. This is crazier then a reality tv show! Who would have thought?
