AN UNDER-APPRECIATED PROBLEM WITH THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY IS HOW HE AND HIS STAFF CONTINUOUSLY NORMALIZE DISASTER. BECAUSE WE WITNESS NEW SCANDALS, GAFFES, COVERUPS, HYPOCRISY, MISDIRECTION, INCOMPETENCE, ATROCITY, CRONYISM, IGNORANCE, RACISM, XENOPHOBIA, TREASON, EMBARRASSMENT, LIES, DYSFUNCTION, POWER GRABS, WAR ESCALATIONS, ENVIRONMENTAL ASSAULTS, MISOGYNY AND MORE ON A DAILY BASIS, THE MAGNITUDE OF EACH IS DIMINISHED IN OUR CONSCIOUSNESS BY THE SIMPLE VIRTUE THAT WE HAVE BECOME SATURATED. BECAUSE OF THIS, WE AT ZENRUPTION WILL BE PUBLISHING A DAILY CURATION OF THE EVENTS THAT HAVE BEEN REPORTED, FROM VARIOUS SOURCES, INCLUDING LEAKS WITHIN THE WHITE HOUSE, SO THAT WE CAN FULLY EXPERIENCE THE LEVEL OF DISASTER OUR EXECUTIVE BRANCH HAS BECOME AND THE IMPLICATIONS IT HAS ON ALL OF US.

Finally getting some pushback. Scaramucci's company violated sanctions to do business with Russia. Imagine that! https://t.co/WphBn58Cbi— Amy Siskind (@Amy_Siskind) July 21, 2017

It's amazing how we went from "Russia is Fake News" to "Can I Pardon Myself?" in less than a week.— Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) July 21, 2017
Mueller has Trump "totally freaked out". He keeps changing passwords, switching out WH staff & interns on a dime and "listening for bugs".— Rogue WH Snr Advisor (@RogueSNRadvisor) July 21, 2017
Trump made every WH lawyer recite this loyalty oath tonight:— Rogue WH Snr Advisor (@RogueSNRadvisor) July 21, 2017
"You are my President. You will always be my President. You are my President."
Because all innocent people ask if they can pardon themselves. pic.twitter.com/Uf0E9ACBkA— Angry WH Staffer (@AngrierWHStaff) July 21, 2017
omfg, I never made this connection.— Holly O'Reilly (@AynRandPaulRyan) July 20, 2017
I repeat: They won't comply. No way Trump is letting Jr talk.— Juliette Kayyem (@juliettekayyem) July 21, 2017
The threat of subpoena is why Trump is looking at pardons.

Mooch would be better PressSec than Comms Dir. Too late to deescalate w/ press - POTUS already declared war.
Vehemently is a good word. Spicer was *pissed*.— Angry WH Staffer (@AngrierWHStaff) July 21, 2017
Priebus is too. He's probably next.

Sean's resignation/Scaramucci appointment = bad bad bad news for Priebus, who blocked AS from WH earlier this year.— Glenn Thrush (@GlennThrush) July 21, 2017
Like Priebus, Bannon, Kushner, Conway, Ivanka - and the President himself - Scaramucci, the new WH comms director, has no govt. experience— West Wing Reports (@WestWingReport) July 21, 2017
Also, Bannon and Priebus increasingly not in Russia-related meetings, per multiple ppl. That is a choice they're making.— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) July 21, 2017

WH insider tells me-Bannon told Scaramucci this morning. "Over my dead body will you get this job!!" somebody better check Bannon's pulse— Stephanie Ruhle (@SRuhle) July 21, 2017
Bannon's been downgraded and may well be on his way out of the Trump WH. https://t.co/VU3xGr9Jwm— John Schindler (@20committee) July 21, 2017
