Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thinkprogress.org: “Trump publicly attacked three of his own appointees in just the past week”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Donald Trump promised as a candidate that he would hire only “the best people” for his administration. In just the past few days, he has publicly attacked at least three of those people — including two who are in supposedly independent positions.

“[T]hey are trying to take away her right of free speech,” he complained in a Fox News phone interview. “It’s not fair.”

His administration had released a statement earlier suggesting that the OSC’s findings “seem to be influenced by media pressure and liberal organizations” and urging that it “be mindful of its own mandate to act in a fair, impartial, non-political manner, and not misinterpret or weaponize the Hatch Act.”
