    Does Trump like "YES" people, IG fired

    If you go against Trump apparently you're "terrible" and a "disgrace."

    WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump on Saturday defended his decision to fire Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community inspector general who flagged the Ukraine whistleblower complaint that ended in his impeachment, calling him a "disgrace."

    "I thought he did a terrible job, absolutely terrible," Trump said at a press briefing at the White House. "He took a fake report and brought it to Congress… not a big Trump fan, that I can tell you."

    "That man is a disgrace to IGs," Trump said of Atkinson. "He is a total disgrace."

    Trump also attacked the whistleblower who first reported the phone call Trump had with Ukraine that was at the heart of the impeachment inquiry.

    "They give this whistleblower a status that he doesn't deserve, he's a fake whistleblower. And frankly, somebody ought to sue his ass off," Trump said. (end)

    This egomaniac will not tolerate anyone who doesn't sing his praises.

    Trump hires the best people to fire and trash.
    Trump November 2013: "Leadership: Whatever happens, you're responsible. If it doesn't happen, you're responsible."

    Trump as President of the United States March 2020:
    “I don't take responsibility at all”

    I think he hates it when they're honest, not even critical.

    “....the best people, blah, blah, blah.....”

    Atkinson became Inspector General of the Intelligence Community (ICIG) in May 2018. He was nominated to the position in November 2017 by President Donald Trump and was confirmed by the United States Senate by voice vote on May 14, 2018. - from Wikipedia

    Trump didn't want a "yes" man as IG, just an impartial, honest one. Atkinson didn't meet those requirements.

    To anyone who thinks Trump can't afford to be distracted from handling the outbreak, he's still focused on getting revenge for being impeached.

    The ICIG engaged in a conspiracy to undermine the administration for political reasons. He has no business holding the job.
