Even before Anthony Scaramucci was personally escorted from the White House grounds after only 10 days on the job, a strong majority of voters—60 percent—believed that the Trump administration had become the chaos capital of America.
Despite evidence to the contrary, Trump tweeted on Monday that no such chaos existed because the stock market had reached the highest level ever, and we were experiencing some sort of economic nirvana.
Highest Stock Market EVER, best economic numbers in years, unemployment lowest in 17 years, wages raising, border secure, S.C.: No WH chaos!

Exactly what this has to do with the revolving door hiring practices we’ve witnessed in his administration, only Trump can tell you, but it’s not uncommon for him to go off on an unrelated tangent when faced with unpleasant facts.
However, based on a recent statement made by Trump’s son-in-law and personal advisor, Jared Kushner, I think the Donald is making a big mistake by trying to hide the chaos obvious to everyone but himself. In fact, Trump should embrace this chaos and use it as the perfect card to play whenever he needs to change the subject.
Say, for example . . . the Russia scandal.
According to Ivanka’s husband, the growing Russian collusion scandal never happened because the Trump campaign was too scatterbrained to pull it off. To be fair, he didn’t say if they were too inept to try or if they tried but were too inept to succeed, but either way, you’ll get no argument from me about Trump’s disorganized administration.
I think it’s important to remember that Trump promised to always hire the “best people” and that his business experience would allow him to run the White House like he runs his businesses.
Come to think of it, when you consider the numerous business bankruptcies Trump has experienced, that could explain a lot about what we’re witnessing in the White House today.
So, let me speak to Donald Trump directly. Mr. President, embrace the chaos. Use it as your “Trump card” to cover up your scandals and your lies. The father of your grandchildren thinks that chaos is the perfect excuse for your ineptitude.
