Trump’s personal assistant abruptly exits administration

Trump's personal assistant abruptly exits administration 1


President Donald Trump's personal assistant, who's been with him since the start of his administration, has abruptly left the White House after sharing intimate details about the President's family with reporters, multiple people tell CNN.

Madeleine Westerhout was forced to resign as executive assistant to the President on Thursday after Trump learned she had shared information with reporters at a recent off-the-record meeting, during which she didn't say her comments were off the record, according to sources familiar with her departure. A reporter divulged details about the dinner to White House staff, the people said.

A former White House official told CNN that Trump was close with Westerhout — whose office was directly in front of the Oval Office — but discussing personal information about his family was a red line.

Her ouster marks yet another departure from an administration beset by a series of exits by high-ranking officials. It also underlines the President's battle against the extensive leaks out of the White House and his greater campaign against the press, and could have a chilling effect on future contacts between members of the administration and reporters.

    Another rat jumps off the ship of trump…
    Now Florida, “when will it end” is going to get special attention from Trump..

  2. Trump is at camp David practicing throwing rolls of paper towels like he’s feeding the seals at Seaworld.

    • @Don Berry obviously you are very ignorant of reality…. wake up and smell the coffee.

    • @Mark K no it’s the trumptards that are ignorant and stupid

    • @Jim P you haven’t actually said anything yet. I’m going to guess that you were a young teenager when Obama started. Just a guess.

    • @Don Berry no point in trying to get trumptards to understand… if you like a president that cannot tell the truth about just about a thing …. it’s a lost cause. Delusional comes to mind. By the way i am retired…. long way from a teenager…..🙄

    Wonder if Trump would care so much if Mara Lago wasn’t in the cross hairs.

  7. Or there were Trump loyalists among the reporters who did let the administration know that she was talking.

    If Hurricane Dorian rips up Mar A Lago, you know it’s a Puerto rican hurricane that doesn’t appreciate Donald’s comments about his country. 🤣🤣🤣

    • Yip! A real believer in karma and in this case well deserved.

    • Don’t worry Mar A Largo was built to withstand hurricanes so don’t lose sleep over Mar A Largo. I’d worry about the people in that area who might lose their homes.

    • @jane toscano Heartless losers like them don’t care. The just care about their feelings. It’s really sick.

  9. A state of emergency in Florida, serving personal interest, none for Puerto Rico? Amazing double standard in reference to The Worth or Value of human life..

  10. *Hire a money launderer for the Russian mob,*
    *Expect a mafia rat-catcher to do a hit job.*

    So we’ve got an acting head of FEMA, and acting head of Homeland Security and a president acting like he knows what he’s doing…

    • @Omowàle Zaquir More childlike insults. I’m sure you’re not a GODLESS demoncrat. You can’t even name an independent that’s running. You push and teach the same things that the GODLESS demoncrats teach and push and you act just like one. You’re just as evil and devil owned as they are.

    • @Omowàle Zaquir I guess you couldn’t find any facts to back up your lies and so you do the only thing you can do. More lies, hate and childlike insults. That’s all you got.

    • @Ronald Novigrod You won’t be able to get through to these GODLESS demoncrats. They love the devil’s lies to much. They let their hate for GOD and whats right and our great president blind them from the truth. That’s why it’s so easy for the devil and his GODLESS demoncrat party to use them. All you’ll get from them is lies, hate and childlike insults. That’s all they have. They have no facts to back up what they say because what they are saying is lies or just their opinion.

      Not believing in your bastardized version of (barbaric) catholicism doesn’t make me godless, it simply means I don’t believe in your virgin raping excuse for a god.

  12. Why isn’t the chosen one at Mar a Lago playing Golf? He’s so great at deflection I bet that hurricane’s gonna bounce right off his Airhead.

  13. Trump trying to act like a real prez is pretty funny, lame but funny

  14. David Forrest | August 30, 2019 at 7:51 PM | Reply

    Oh Donnie shouldn’t you be in Mara Largo during this hurricane? Man-up little buddy !

  15. Trump is supposedly the chose one. I think he should go down there and force the hurricane to turn back through the word of god.

  16. The key words are Trump demands loyalty from those who work for him but he is not loyal to them in return. Why anyone in their right mind works for him is beyond sanity.

  17. Trump will now say he met her only a few times and that she was a low-level employee.

  18. Looks like ACTING is the case for the whole Trump GOP…!!! LMAO

  19. Camp David…? I thought Dorian… or DORAL was the “headache” of choice among Red necks?
    Small Government… small Mind. Pay “no mind”.

    Would Trump have suggested nuking a hurricane if his own properties WEREN’T in its path?
