First Lady Melania Trump Let Go In Latest White House Firing Spree
The revolving door that is the White House cabinet and staff has spun wildly again. This time it ushered out First Lady, Melania Trump. Reports suggest that Mrs. Trump found out she was let go this morning on Twitter with the rest of the nation. It is unclear if Melania’s firing was accidental, if she underperformed in her duties, or if she was discovered to be watching CNN.
A senior staffer speaking on condition of anonymity says, “I don’t believe it was any of that. The President simply likes firing people. He really believes he is still that reality TV star from the late 90s. He will walk up to you, tell you that you are a phenomenal person, and then the next morning, you are a hashtag in his tweet.”
Many in this administration see themselves as temporary help. Our anonymous source relates his hiring interview. “I was glad to start working with the administration. I told them I would like to give my employer a two-week notice. They told me that was unnecessary. I was confused. Then I was informed that I should just take my vacation to begin working at the White House, and then I could just return to my job without having gone through the resignation process. The joke around the West Wing is, ‘If you aren’t hired after Thanksgiving, you won’t be there for the Christmas party.’”
For her part, Mrs. Trump is taking it in stride. Upon reading of her firing, she tweeted out, “I wasn’t the first, and I likely won’t be the last.”
