Leftists Get First Scalp: Trump’s National Security Advisor Michael Flynn Resigns

Leftist are happier than a hippy who made it through Customs, as they get their first Trump administration scalp.

Mike Flynn resigned.

As reported by FOX News,

General Flynn White House warns IranPresident Trump’s embattled national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned Monday night, Fox News reported.

Flynn, in his resignation letter, wrote that he “inadvertently” briefed  top officials with incomplete information regarding his call with the Russian ambassador.

“I have sincerely apologized to the president and the vice president, and they have accepted my apology,” the letter read.

The fact is, Trump gave Flynn an ultimatum.

The Left love that Trump has his first casualty. By now his cabinet should be in place, and his agenda moving forward. For the most part it has.

The situation with Flynn was likely viewed by President Trump as a distraction, and he knows how the Left will try to let it linger. The best move was to jettison the cargo.

What Conservatives should see and likely will see as leadership will be seen as the opposite for the Left. But remember what Trump did during the campaign.

In June of 2016, Trump dropped Lewandowski at a critical juncture.

“The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”

Donald Trump has parted ways with his presidential campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, according to The New York Times.

The move comes as the presumptive GOP presidential nominee pivots toward the general election and readies for the Party’s national convention next month in Cleveland.

Lewandowski was replaced with Manafort, and he was later dropped. Manafort was replaced with Bannon and Conway.

Donald Trump, following weeks of gnawing agitation over his advisers’ attempts to temper his style, moved late Tuesday to overhaul his struggling campaign by rebuffing those efforts and elevating two longtime associates who have encouraged his combative populism.

Stephen Bannon, a former banker who runs the influential conservative outlet Breitbart News and is known for his fiercely anti-establishment politics, has been named the Trump campaign’s chief executive. Kellyanne Conway, a veteran Republican pollster who has been close to Trump for years, will assume the role of campaign manager.

All these moves were consider “tumultuous,” or worse. And we all know the end of the story.

In short, Flynn’s removal is par for the course. Donald Trump has fired many people over the years. Letting people go is not fun, particularly if they are good. Flynn made one mistake. In the corporate world that might be ok. However, in the political world, the optics are far more serious.

You can bet however that President Trump sees this move as “business as usual.” Moreover, he will make sure his next choice understands the role.

The article continues,

Flynn apologized privately for the controversy to Vice President Mike Pence, according to a White House official. Pence, relying on information from Flynn, publicly vouched that the retired Army lieutenant general did not discuss U.S. sanctions against Russia in calls late last year. Flynn has since told the White House that sanctions may have come up.

With Flynn gone, you can bet the Left will quickly find a new criticism or ten of Trump.
