    Historically, many of those who worked at the White House leave enhanced, famous, burnished.

    Doesn't matter the party. Condoleezza Rice for instance. More respected now than before she entered the White House.

    In fact, for most, being Secretary of State has enhanced the reputation of nearly everyone who has served in that office.

    Historically, most people who have worked at the White House went on to better jobs and an enhanced reputation.

    Until now. Trump has shown himself to be the reverse Midas man. Instead of an enhanced reputation, every single person who have come into Trump's orbit has left the White House tarnished, embarrassed, their reputation diminished if not ruined.

    I could be wrong, but I can't name a single person who has left Trump's orbit in a better place than when they entered that orbit. No one who has served there will leave with an enhanced reputation.

    It's as if anyone who happens into Trump's orbit is sullied. Doesn't matter who it is.

    Not sure.
    But I do think his followers must have noticed it by now.
    Certainly his business has.

    Trump's blue state businesses are struggling

    Why do you think Trump can not get decent people with reputations to protect to join him?

    Attorneys like Ted Olsen? How many turned him down? Rudy, who has not practiced law for 20 years and his glory days in New York long gone.

    How about that 30 Minute screech on Fox yesterday? I have never seen such 3 unhappy hosts in my life as Trump’s rant went on. It would have been funny if not where a group of fools put him.

    The 24/7 liberal character assassinations on Trump et al certainly has an effect but overall he's been getting things done.

    Democrats are nothing more than a hindrance to American success at this point. I think that's what's being noticed but not by the liberal extremists or their news propagandists. .

    Oh wow, such amazing things.

    Ended subsidies for healthcare that will cost 20 million, mostly Trump supporters their healthcare.

    Much needed tax cuts for corporations who are making more than they ever have before.

    Tax cuts for needy billionaires.

    He's managed to make enemies of our friends.

    It's amazing how much he's done.
