The God-Emperor of the Cherry Blossom Throne has made his first mistake!
President Trump has announced that Reince Prebius will be his Chief of Staff. A big mistake. Yeah, yeah I know that he is an insider and close to Ryan so Trump can get his legislative stuff through. That's bullshit. Ryan is not going to cooperate. He is going to fight us every step of the way. He is a snake and he needs to be dealt with. We are going to have to steamroll him and marginalize him.
Trump was elected to drain the swamp. Reince and Ryan are two of the fattest muskrats wallowing in the muck. If Trump pushes term limits and his plan to stop Congressmen and his Administration officials from becoming lobbyists he will go a long way to reassuring his voters.
The one bright spot is that former Breitbart Head Steve Bannon was named as a Chief Advisor to the Throne. I guess it is a "Team of Rivals" bullshit move that most Presidents try. I think it is fine because Bannon will knife Reince before you know it and he will be out in six months.
Bannon is Trumps nod to his voters. We will see how this develops over time. I think Bannon will carry the polices I favor forward. I trust him in the fight. He fights dirty. He hates Ryan. Reince will never knew what hit him.
Trump needs to push his first 100 days agenda using Reince's so called relationship with Ryan. If Ryan balks at all then you cut Reince's throat and throw him over the side. Trump has no trouble doing this. He had three campaign managers after all. Corey when he needed a street fighter to watch his back while he demolished his rivals in the primary. Manafort when he had to calm the pussies at the convention and squelch the incipient rebellion. Then Kellyanne to bring it home. He will do the same with his administration. He has no problem firing people who don't produce.
But this is the first of many disappointments I will suffer during the reign of the God-Emperor of the Cherry Blossom Throne. I understand why he did it but I am sad that he did.
I just take solace in the thoughts of the rest of his army of faithful samurai.
