Angella Reid fired

By DAILYMAIL.COM REPORTER
PUBLISHED: 17:01 EDT, 5 May 2017 | UPDATED: 20:47 EDT, 5 May 2017

Angella Reid, the first woman and second African-American to hold the position of White House chief usher, was fired because .. she remains a Hillary supporter ...

The position is not political so it's highly unusual for someone to be fired ... There have only been 10 chief ushers since .. the turn of the 20th century ...

'The Trump administration seems worried about Obama's spies, and there may have been a feeling that she wasn't on page with the Trumpians,' <Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian at Rice University> told the Washington Post ...

10. Actually it's quite uncommon: it's a professional position, and the ushers

almost always serve for a number of years under various presidents of different parties

"Ike" Hoover 1909-1933 (Taft, Wilson, Harding, Coolidge, Hoover)
Raymond Muir 1933-1938 (Roosevelt)
Howell Crim 1938-1957 (Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower)
J. B. West 1957-1969 (Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson)
Rex Scouten 1969-1986 (Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan)
Gary Walters 1986-2007 (Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama)
Angella Reid 2011-2017 (Obama)

12. Read the article, because it is odd

And it is part of the 'bigger' issue regarding the guy squatting in the White House and his paranoia about anything and everything that's not within his circle
I'd post about the Ushers that have served numerous presidencies, but someone beat me to it

R.I.F.

18. Nothing he has been doing regarding staffing is "common" at all. He's got a skeleton staff of

 

Loyalists attempting to leave no paper trail. He's afreaid of having any witnesses. It's unpresidented.

9. No doubt he'll replace her with a Trump hotel flunky who will fire and replace all the ushers.

20. Remember he has "minders" positioned throughout the governmental

agencies and departments. They're to be his eyes & ears and report back to the White House if anyone/anything is being unloyal or not following his agenda.

I've read that this is one (of many) reason(s) he hasn't filled positions - all due to loyalty issues. Some people they hired were dismissed after finding that the person was not initially a Trump supporter, even as far back as the primary. If you were a "Never Trump" person, the White House doesn't want you.

I have no links, this is all from reading the "fake" news.

While I'm thinking about it, I've often wondered about his penchant insisting on employees or those who he does business with to sign iron clad non disclosure contracts.

He cannot do that with federal employees, yet, 2 cents to a donut, I bet he has worked around that one. Interesting if, say, Sean Spicer wrote a tell-all book 10 years from now. How could Trump enforce it or sue?

Anyway, I wish a reporter would look into it. I'm super curious.

22. Wow! I didn't know, but it's hardly surprising

Every time you think it can't possibly get worse, there's something like this. Where are the people with their hair on fire over the despicable things that are happening every day?? Even the news media is treating his ridiculous and egregious behavior as "the new normal..."

pit.
