Top Trump Adviser Cohn Quits, Too

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Donald Trump had no qualifications to walk into the White House on January 20. See The Gatekeepers: How The White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every Presidency, by Chris Whipple (December, 2016).


Always petulant, Mr. Trump yesterday abolished two White House advisory councils consisting of leading CEOs, many of whom ended their relationship with the mega-billionaire —  who hoodwinked his base into thinking that he really cares about them —  because of his visibly vigorous support of white nationalists in Charlottesville (


The current occupant of the White House wants to bring America back to where it was in the 1950s, but he has no concept of the significance of the race issue in the United States.


And now, according to associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones, Trump’s whizbang economic guru, Gary Cohn, has quit as well. Cohn came to the Trump Administration to lead Trump’s National Economic Council from, guess where? Goldman Sachs, and, amazingly enough, he’s a Democrat. He is also bald, and not pretty.


“You see, Johanna,” Cohn explained, “most of my friends already knew that I look like a rat, and they always called me a ratfink, so it’s time for this rat to escape from the sinking ship.”


Newly named Communications Director Hope Hicks told Jones that her boss will probably name his unqualified son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as the head of his National Economic Council because nobody else wants to work for him.
