White House Staffers: Pack Your Things And...Stay?


Oops! White House staffers received an email on Tuesday night with instructions on how to vacate the office. But according to Business Insider, aides were told to 'disregard' the message on Wednesday morning. The message also stated that staff 'will start departing' the week of January 4, and final paychecks will run through January 19, 2021. The confusion surrounding the departure process comes as President Donald Trump desperately tries to cling to power, despite losing the 2020 election. President-elect Joe Biden will be sworn in on Inauguration Day, which takes place on January 20th, 2021. In the unlikely event that Trump refuses to leave the White House, Secret Service agents could be asked to escort him out.

  • Um, Pass: Employers Don't Seem To Want To Touch Ex-Trump Staffers With Barge Pole

    The resumes of former White House staff usually go straight to the top of the pile when it comes to getting top jobs. After all, they've had the unparalleled experience of years of dealing with some of the toughest crises in government. But according to Business Insider, Trump administration staffers aren't finding such a post-POTUS cushy landing. As businesses begin to shun Trump enterprises, one PR recruiter said they had received inquiries from at least 15 people from the White House looking for jobs. The headhunter took on six people as clients, but none were able to even secure an interview with corporations they had applied to. It's just very hard. You're supposed to put anyone in front of a job that has the credentials. Morally, it's hard for people to want to work with them. Public Relations Recruiter

  • It's Good To Be POTUS: The Many Perks Of Being Commander In Chief

    The road to the Oval Office is fraught with peril and stained with blood, sweat, and tears. But once there, the US President makes out reasonably well. According to Business Insider, the president earns an annual salary of $400,000, as well as unlimited access to Air Force One, Marine One, and Camp David. He and his family are also looked after by over 100 White House staffers, including top-flight pastry chefs, maids, landscapers, plumbers, and a head housekeeper. While the president is never really 'off,' he and his family can relax and watch movies in the White House media room, and work off steam in a number of sports areas. Finally, US presidents get free healthcare and a generous $200,000 annual pension--for life!

  • As Trump's Chief Of Staff Puts His Foot In It Again, WH Staffers' Patience Grows Thin

    President Donald Trump's fourth Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, is not winning any popularity contests among the president's aides. In a jaw-dropping exchange Sunday with CNN's Jake Tapper, Meadows said bluntly, 'We are not going to control the pandemic.' A Trump campaign adviser said there is widespread frustration over Meadows' comments, as well as his leadership more broadly. Sources say Trump remains displeased with how Meadows handled the crisis surrounding his own bout with coronavirus. Early in the crisis, Meadows came to view the White House coronavirus task force, led by Vice President Mike Pence, as largely irrelevant. He has not intervened as Dr. Scott Atlas, a radiologist with no experience in public health, undermines health experts and poo-poos mask-wearing. Besides downplaying the pandemic, Meadows has encouraged Trump to carry on his large-scale rallies, despite a nationwide surge in cases.

  • As Trump Languishes At Walter Reed, Staffers Struggle To Maintain 'Strong Man' Image

    Over the course of the novel coronavirus pandemic, US President Donald Trump has admitted to have knowingly downplayed the seriousness of the illness. So when Trump tested positive for COVID-19 early on Friday, experts say it may now be difficult for him and his administration to be trusted. Specifically, Business Insider reports it may be difficult for Trump to navigate a public image as a 'strong leader,' given his long track record of lies. USC communications professor Karen North says that as Trump's stance on the pandemic has been dismissive of the threat, he can't change tune quickly. He's out of commission on a topic that just went in opposition to his rhetoric. And so they now have a messaging problem, and they're going to have to figure out what their message is going to be.

  • Now COVID-19 Positive, Trump's Pitch That Biden Is Old, Unwell Evaporates

    The bombshell news of US President Donald Trump's coronavirus diagnosis has sent a chill down the spines of his campaign aides. According to Business Insider, they fear that his diagnosis could harm his reelection chances. Trump spent months downplaying the disease and ignoring CDC guidelines. GOP strategists worry voters will hold it against him. His campaign message that Democratic opponent Joe Biden was old and unable to lead will be undermined if Trump is unwell and Biden remains healthy. Trump was already behind in the polls and had been trying to move the conversation away from the US handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
