On Monday, former Reagan White House official, Ed Rodgers wrote an op-ed on The Washington Post urging Vice President Mike Pence to go behind Donald Trump’s back and clean up the mess he has made of the presidency.
Rodgers explained that current turmoil in the White House will lead to a crisis.
“The crisis or catastrophe caused by the dysfunction has not happened yet. No one knows what the crisis is going to be. But we are living in perilous times,” he warned.
Rogers suggested that Pence needs to straighten out the White House by picking a serious adult to help run it.
“The vice president’s office is already known in Washington as ‘the pod of normalcy,’ based primarily on Pence’s own sound judgment and calm demeanor,” he wrote. “His office is populated with good people who are capable, get along well with each other and are not part of the wild dramas constantly emanating from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.”
He added, “But now, the White House needs ballast. It needs more seasoned experts who bring gravitas to the administration at a time when it seems to be teetering.”
“The vice president would be doing a service by reinforcing his office with an experienced chief of staff, in case something extraordinary happens,” he continued.
