Donald Trump's Administration Makes Him Sign A New Executive Order To Replace His Chaotic Travel Ban — But How Is It REALLY Different??

no title

Donald Trump's administration has signed a revised executive order to replace his travel ban.

Effective next week, the new executive order officially revokes and replaces the controversial order the President signed in late January, which was blocked by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last month — but how is this new one any different?

Well, first off one of the seven majority-Muslim countries previously banned from entering the States is now off the hook.

The downsized order narrows the list of countries barred from entering the U.S. from seven to six — Iraq has been removed from the list at the urging of the State Department and the Pentagon.

A senior U.S. Official said Iraq was removed from the list "because we have received firm commitments from the government of Iraq about increased cooperation in terms of info sharing and other related activities."

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also echoed the importance of keeping a strong alliance with Iraq, telling press on Monday:

Holy Shit, The ENTIRE State Department Senior-Level Management Team Just Walked Out The Door On New Secretary Rex Tillerson!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpScary!Crazzzzy

Rex Tillerson

UPDATE 1:40 P.M. EST: Two senior administration officials said the four top State Department management officials were actually asked to leave by the Trump administration in an effort to "clean house," CNN reports.

According to the officials' account, the staff sent in resignation notices after they were reportedly sent letters by the White House saying that their public service was no longer needed. One senior State Department official said:

"Any implication that that these four people quit is wrong. These people are loyal to the secretary, the President and to the State Department. There is just not any attempt here to dis the President. People are not quitting and running away in disgust. This is the White House cleaning house."

The State Department's acting spokesman, Mark Toner, said in a statement:

"These positions are political appointments, and require the President to nominate and the Senate to confirm them in these roles. They are not career appointments but of limited term. Of the officers whose resignations were accepted, some will continue in the Foreign Service in other positions, and others will retire by choice or because they have exceeded the time limits of their grade in service."

Hmmm…


Donald Trump is the reason we can't have nice things.

Drumpf's newly-appointed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was getting all settled into his new digs on Wednesday… when the State Department's ENTIRE senior-level management team RESIGNED!!

This is unprecedented!!

According to the Washington Post, David Wade, former chief of staff for John Kerry called the housecleaning:

"It's the single biggest simultaneous departure of institutional memory that anyone can remember, and that's incredibly difficult to replicate. Department expertise in security, management, administrative and consular positions in particular are very difficult to replicate and particularly difficult to find in the private sector."

Wow.

So who bailed?

A number of people who have served under both Republican and Democratic administrations, including Patrick Kennedy who was in the running to become Tillerson's right-hand man.

Late Night Hosts React To Donald Trump's Latest Disastrous Cabinet Picks — And His Meeting With Kanye West!

no title

Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump swore against aligning himself with big bankers and corporate executives as a part of his populist scam rhetoric.

But as the president-elect fills his cabinet, it's become quite clear he's surrounding himself exclusively with rich donors… and one narcissistic rapper!

On Tuesday, late night hosts pounced on the incoming POTUS' recent cabinet appointments, such as Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State, that have gone against what Trump preached during his campaign.

Seth Meyers pointed out this hypocrisy on Late Night, calling out some of Trump's questionable picks — like Hardee's/Carl's Jr. CEO Andrew Puzder for labor secretary and longtime Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin for treasury secretary.

But it was Stephen Colbert who dissected Trump's most high profile sit-down at Trump Tower — his meeting with Kanye West!

The Late Show host joked that the two were going to release an album (titled "The Deportation of Pablo," of course) but cautioned that their meeting was a security risk, quipping:
