If there is one take away from the ‘famous’ television reality show ‘The Apprentice’, it is the authority with which businessmen-turned US President Donald Trump said “You are fired”, almost every time he was asked to open his mouth.
The flamboyant host of the show loved to sack people who did not live up to his sense of expectation, basically anyone who did make mullah by declaring bankruptcy — a number much higher then the total number of days his show was aired.
Well, the talented golden haired actor is back in business — much ferocious, really vocal and still ‘firing’ people. Of course!
In an absolute ‘carnage’ Donald Trump is now single-handedly responsible for wiping out more than 11 high-profiled characters, a feat which was earlier shared by his rival TV drama team of ‘Game of Thrones’.
Hold him a ‘Grammy’ someone, unless everyone else is fired as well!
Meanwhile, let us take a good look at the number of people fired by Donald Trump ever since he became the President of US on January 2017.
Having known the extent of people under Trump’s ire, there could possibly be no chronological order to this list. Please comment below if we miss out on someone. We seriously lacked funds and legal permission to conduct a large-scale survey — US visa issue!
Name: Anthony Scaramucci
First in the casualty list is White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, fired 10 days after he was hired.
“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Monday afternoon.
“Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best,” added Sarah Sanders.
Name: James Comey
James Brien Comey Jr is an American lawyer who served as the seventh Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from September 4, 2013 until May 9, 2017.
Donald Trump cited Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation as the reason behind his decision. The move has raised concerns over the independence of the bureau’s authourity to investigate the alleged meddling by Russia in US presidential election.
Name: Sally Yates
Appointed by Barack Obama as United States Attorney and later United States Deputy Attorney General, Sally Caroline Yates (acting attorney general) was fired after she refused to defend the executive order of President Trump to closing their borders to refugees and people of Muslim ethnicity.
Name: Michael Flynn
National security adviser, Michael T Flynn resigned after it was revealed that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other top White House officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States.
Name: Preet Bharara
Preet Bharara, the powerful Manhattan prosecutor who was among 46 US attorneys was fired on Saturday after he refused to resign following an order from attorney general Jeff Sessions. Bharara had earned a reputation of a “crusader” prosecutor.
Name: Walter Shaub
With almost six months left in his five-year term, head of the Office of Government Ethics, Walter Shaub rsigned in July this year. He was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2013.
He now works with a Washington DC based election law organization.
In addition, Michael Dubke, Reince Priebus, Sean Spicer, Michael Short, and Anthony Scaramucci are among the others.
On that note we would like to borrow lines from the famous nature poet William Wordsworth and add a fractured twist (hopefully he won’t mind now), and leave you guys with a bedtime whisper for President Trump:
“The list is long, dark and deep,
But I have Russians to keep.
Many more to fire before I sleep,
many more to fire before I sleep!”
