Trump Administration Staffers Are Already Passing Around Their Resumes
The last two weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency have been riddled with bombshell after bombshell over his Russia scandal, and it’s definitely taking a toll on his administration. Apparently, things in the White House have gotten so grim that staffers are looking forward to the end and have already started to send out their resumes.
Ever since Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, the mood in the White House has been worse than ever. A recent report by the Washington Post described the dire situation as follows:
The staffers have felt “paralyzed” and senior officials have been moping around “with funeral looks on their faces.” While Trump’s staffers feel absolutely helpless as their boss continues to become more erratic and create more PR nightmares, the erratic president has only become more furious and frustrated at his staff for not being able to keep up.

Some White House staffers have turned to impeachment gallows humor. Other mid-level aides have started reaching out to consultants, shopping their resumes. And at least one senior staffer has begun privately talking to friends about what a post-White House job would look like, according to two people close the staffer.
Amid the chaos, West Wing aides have started “passing around their résumés to think tanks, super PACs and corporate communications firms,” according to TIME Magazine.
One mid-level revealed that staffers are exhausted and have no hope that conditions under Trump’s chaotic leadership will improve.
“Just when you think the pace is unsustainable, it accelerates. The moment it gets quiet is when the next crisis happens,” the staffer told TIME.
The news comes as Impeachment fever sweeps across Capitol Hill.
