Just marvelous!

While the nation’s capitol reeled on Monday from former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci’s exit, few took the news harder than Stephen Colbert. “I come to you tonight a broken man,” Colbert told the audience on his “Late Show” Monday evening. “Because just this afternoon I was shocked by this breaking ‘nooch.’” The news,…

When will the Trump Administration wake up and assess the damage the President has caused? Regrettably, Ethics Directors have no legislative power over abusers of the law and social norms. They are advice-givers only, and their effectiveness can only be measured by the opinions they can sway in high places. Shaub has decided he will be much more effective from the ‘outside’. More power to him.

Walter Shaub, director of the US Office of Government Ethics, who has pushed the Trump administration for months to comply with historical norms for a president and his cabinet, seems to finally have had enough.
