Collateral damage or embarassment?

Have you noticed that in the Trump White House certain people within the sacred circle of influence  are treated as either collateral damage ( Michael Flynn) or media embarrassments (Kellyanne Conway) are defended to the death via barrages of tweets and verbal outrage from the W.H.?

It seems that collateral damage although treated with disdain and disgust is still offered a sympathetic sentence or two from the president. Regarding Flynn Trump uttered , ” he was a good man…treated badly by the press”.

If you are bean counter and faithfully keep a tab on the number of Tweets issued from the WH you will note that there was not that expected volley of verbal bile launched from Mr T. What happened there?

The fact that the tweets did not appear immediately foreshadowed the fact that something was amiss in the White House and the president may have been mulling about his options.

As far as Ms Conway is concerned she was “counselled”, “advised” “set straight” by the big guy himself. Sean Spicer told reporters that Mr T. did not like the term “counselled”. It must have been stricken from the record. So let it be written. So let it be done!

It may be postulated that both Ms Conway and Trump suffer from verbal diarrhea and mental constipation at the same time. They tend to hold back their thoughts from the public record but blurt out ridiculous innuendoes and accusations which reasonable men and women would consider total fantasy based not on fact but fiction.

I think this apparent lack of good judgement and objectivity are persuading countries ( dare I use the term enemies) to flaunt their missiles, tanks and mortar barrages into the night sky to test the resolve and stability of the United States. 

Are these things really happening or are they mere incidences of fake news? Only the counsel to the president knows for sure.
