Spicer and the Minifridge in the night.

Huckabee Sanders is now Press Secretary

Futurama 80’s guy, Anthony Scaramucci, takes on the Whitehouse communications Director roll.

Then only a few days later implodes. Has a bad interview. Get’s Rince Pribus fired, then Pribus’ replacement, John F. Kelly, President Trump’s new chief of staff, fires him. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/31/us/politics/trump-white-house-obamacare-health.html

What happened this week:

Healthcare didn’t get thrown out the window. John McCain rose from the mostly dead to deliver two staggering votes. The first was to allow the “discussion” to continue on healthcare in the senate. The second was a no vote, blocking the majority from repealing major parts of Obama’s healthcare legacy.
