After an especially “interesting” week of drama in the Trump Oval Office, it’s easy to lose track of what all happened. The big news on Monday (7/24) was Trump’s tweets relentlessly bashing his Atty. General and early campaign backer, Jeff Sessions of Alabama.
By Wednesday (7/25) Trump tweeted a major policy change: the military will not allow LGBT citizens to serve. This caught the Pentagon brass by surprise, and served as a distraction from updates on Congressional probes into Russian connections with the Trump campaign.
Then, a late Wednesday night phone call by (not yet actually serving in the position) Trump’s new capodicena, Anthony “Mooch” Scarmucci, to New Yorker writer Ryan Lizza, really blew up the news-cycle.
