Michael Flynn, Donald Trump’s national security adviser, has resigned from his post after less than one month in office following reports that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russia.
The standard political move is to blow smoke, deny that there’s a problem and then, when someone does eventually go, deny there ever was a problem.
Here we seem to have “Yup, Mike, that was a fuck up. Goodbye”
I wonder if this rather businesslike attitude toward failure is going to be a constant theme?
