Since 9/11 America has indeed been going to hell in a handcart, acting aggressively and often unilaterally on the world stage, increasing its domestic surveillance, and expanding a for-profit prison industry, while letting the country's infrastructure and middle class continue to decline. Compared to these factors, the personal feelings of the White House communications director don't bother me very much. His job is to report on policy, not set it.

In any case, it's debatable if the article accurately reflects what Scaramucci said / believes. The offending quotes in question are that "people have gotten things wrong throughout the 5,500-year history of our planet" and something to the effect of "human history is 5,500 years old." It's not much of a stretch to assume that both quotes are referring to written history, which is typically thought to have begun around 3000 BCE.

Rather than reporting on the real problems that are affecting America, the MSM is content to distract the populace with the current version of "bread and circuses" - endless anti-Trump and anti-Russia hysteria. Don't fall for it.

"That's like telling a doctor you no longer believe in modern cancer treatment because doctors used mercury to heal ailments in 1,500 BC."

Doctors still use Mercury. It is really useful medically although it is very poisonous.

The USA is a strange country. In 1985 in Plymouth Mass I saw the first morbidly obese person in my life (you see them all the time on the TV nowadays). She ate a pizza the size of a coffee table then ate a bucket of chicken. I mean a bucket the size of a pail you would wash your car with. It was a public act too at the Jenny Pond Park. She probably believed that Moses was Jesus's father and that the world was 4,000 years old. No wonder they liked slavery so much and believe they have been to the moon.

Well if he didn't mean it he's still amazingly careless to have implied it, given that many Trump supporters do believe it. Which country has a spokesperson that says that and attacks someone using obscene language on successive days? It is certainly a bloody handcart situation.

As for don't fall for the anti Trump stuff, I will and I do!

Well he's gone now.
So wonder who the next to exit will be.
Kelly after 45 found out he was sympathetic to Comey?

Disappointed to see Scaramucci get the ax. I don't recall ever hearing about him before last week, but I did find him refreshing. And he seemed loyal to the president, which is what Trump needs most now in his cabinet. The administration does seem to be imploding in the face of a relentless media assault and infighting. My prediction for next in line will be either Bannon or Sessions. Bannon if Trump and his advisors think that by compromising they will get the media's support; Sessions if Trump and co say "fuck it" and decide to take a more aggressive stance toward the Washington establishment. My hope is for option #2, though with Scaramucci gone that seems less likely.

Now we have Mike Pence saying evolution is a theory, theories are uncertain, therefore evolution is uncertain. Theoretically correct but practically insane. The White House DOES contain fruitloops.
