Trump Hints At Firing Jet-Setter Tom Price: We’ll See

The Chicago Tribune reports:

President Donald Trump says he is “not happy” with his Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price following reports that Price used a private plane for official business. And Trump says he let Price know it. Asked whether he’s planning on firing Price, Trump responded: “We’ll see.” Trump spoke to reporters Wednesday as he departed the White House for a trip to Indianapolis to sell his tax plan.

    Not a violent man but Tom Price has the face that I would repeatedly love to drive my fist into

    I am glad I am not going to be anywhere NEAR where the ShitGibbon will be today.

  • Rex

    “We’ll see” – good as done.

  • Jay George

    See why it’s a good idea to hire someone who is actually qualified? smdh

    • bambinoitaliano

      But you have to start at qualifying employer.

      • Jay George

        You won’t hear any argument from me. πŸ˜‰

  • Tatonka

    Trump continues his 100% record of taking responsibility for nothing that happens on his watch.

    • MichaelJ

      Bush II never took responsibility for anything he did wrong either. Arrogance and wealth is a bad combination.

    I love it! Love it! The only worthwhile thing about President Dotard is his sociopathic need to destroy his friends and allies. I really miss watching him humiliate, berate and annhilate the careers of these assholes!

      I believe part of the new “accelerated” application process engineered by Pence was the submission of a letter of resignation on the back of the cover letter.

        It saves time and money!

    The funny thing is he is going to be at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. For those of you who don’t know, that is in a SOLIDLY Democrat district, Andre Carson’s House District is RIGHT THERE! Who is going to be selling his snake oil to there?

  • Lazycrockett

    Drumpf is a coward when it comes to actually firing someone.

    • JWC

      you mean “You’re Fired was all TV???

      Why? What did I do?

      • Robincho

        You’re fine. Breathe deep. It’s the other one…

        • Rex

          Oh, good, I’m so close to retirement.

          • Robincho

            Yeah, that was a close one, right?…

      • james1200

        You refused to bend over. It’s a fireable offense where I come from, too.

          Oh, honey, that’s not it.

            Well, then, you didn’t arch your back enough or something. Anyway, you gotta go!

            Never enough with you is it? Damn bossy tops.

          • james1200

            I flip, which is why I understand Safari’s dissatisfaction with your performance.

          • WitlessProtection

            I’ll have to give that a try, then next year flip to Even years bottom and odd years top.

          • james1200

            I’ll bet you’ll be sad to watch 2017 go out then, huh? But your butthole will be happy!

          • Rex

            Yes, I’ll have good memories of that one time. One. Time.

    • clay

      He’s corrected Trump, what?, twice? in public in the last month?
      (North Korea and Catalonia)
      Third time and he’s out?

    • Robincho

      We need to spell it Rexx. Just to remind us where he comes from…

  • MikeBx2

    Now where did Price ever get the idea that excessive spending of taxpayer dollars on travel was ok?

    • justme

      oh say 65 resort visits in the last 7 months…

  • Robincho

    The Price Is Right The Fuck Outta Here…

  • Uncle Mark

    I’m sure Trumplethinskin is also blaming Price for a shitty series of “healthcare” bills that can’t get passed…and Price is the only person related to this bill that he can actually shitcan

      • Treant

        You fuck her. I don’t want to fuck her.

        We can get Ron Jeremy. He’ll fuck anything.

  • Lazycrockett
    • PickyPecker

      But…but…..dRUMPf said all the reviews of what the feds have been doing for PR have been great!

    • james1200

      This is hitting Hurricane Katrina levels of incompetence, combined with flat-out racial animus, which is the reason why his administration isn’t lifting a damn finger. Another sign to the base that he’s here to make life miserable for people of color. He needs to fucking be Guantanamo’d!

      • KnownDonorDad

        Who is in charge – who’s the Heckuva Job Guy in this case?

        • james1200

          Trump. He’s his own “Brownie”. The incompetence flows from the top down.

        Has nobody informed FEMA that container shipping depends on the power grid – you know, that part of the infrastructure thingy that PR is nearly entirely without?

      He meant, ‘Nice brain you got there, McCain. Pity if something ELSE happened to it that landed you in the hospital.’

    • PickyPecker
  • Treant

    “We’ll see.”

    Well, there’s definitive and decisive honesty and morality. In the Obama White House, anybody doing this would be shown the door quite swiftly.

  • safari

    I think it finally happened. I think the sheer amount of negativity I imbibe has overwhelmed me.

    • WitlessProtection

      Remember when most of the news of JMG was LGBT related?

        I think I’ve only been here for two years or so.

  • fkevin

    What ever happen to the investigation of Price for insider trading? Did it just die with the firing of Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara last March? I guess Sessions did not want to pursue. SEC has been silent too.

      Strangely, the more he tries, the more I sympathize and understand what other races go through on a daily basis.

    Such a lousy showman.

  • stevenj

    β€œI’m not happy about it, and I let him know it.”

    Well, yes….Price is not going to be allowed to upstage the star of the show with his flashy free wheelin’ jet settin’ Country Club Republican lifestyle.

  • boatboy_srq

    You can bet that if Price were traveling on Trump Inc’s dime and not on THE PEOPLE’S MONEY he would have been out on his arse in no time.

  • Dagoril

    What, did we skip right past the “I have 100% Confidence in Him” Stage? Or did it happen without my noticing??

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    9 months in and still dozens, if not hundreds, of positions still not filled. Promises of a wall, repeal & replace, etc. failed. Executive orders by the bucket loads, golf trips by the truck loads, no diplomatic successes only failures, whining about the NFL, cheering on Nazis, America’s reputation in tatters, a U.N. speech that was so egregious it will be in the history books for all the wrong reasons, firing, hiring then firing people….

    9 months people, it’s only been 9 months.

  • CharlestonDave

    One thing I have not understood about the coverage of Trump…

    Why doesn’t anyone point out that he has been an extraordinarily poor judge of character?

    During the campaign, we got countless vacuous bromides that he was going to hire “the best people.”

    Yet there has been a fulsome, golden stream flowing outward from his administration.

    Similarly, he has been a poor judge of character with regards to foreign leaders.

    Why doesn’t anybody point out this as a failing of Trump as a manager?

  • TimJ

    Could you imagine working for this guy? As a career Human Resources professional I can only say that working with or for Trump would totally suck.

  • teedofftaxpayer

    I thought he only hired the best people? His ratio of good hires versus bad hires is pretty dismal.

  • wds

    I guess we could say, this Price wasn’t Right ….>I’ll show myself out< …
