Mulvaney will be special envoy to Ireland. I guess he will run the Trump Hotel there for a while?

He will certainly stay there regularly with all of his essential staff. After all, at $50.00 a night it's a steal.

Once source says United States Special Envoy for Northern Ireland and one says United States Special Envoy to Ireland.

Either way, he is out on his butt.

Mick Mulvaney, Mark Meadows: Mark Mulvaney, Mick Meadows. Who the fuck can tell the difference between these two fascist assholes?
At least Meadows is now out of the House. Trump should recruit Jim Jordan as well...

Meadows is out of the House, but he was powerless there. The Carolina GOP guys are a special kind of fascist.

People like Jordan and Nunes are less dangerous idiots compared to the true-believer southern GOP guys.

Trump named Mulvaney special envoy to Northern Ireland after a 14-month tenure in which he made few, if any, attempts to curb the president’s often impulsive actions and statements.
He'll fit in well with the right wing parties that dominate in Nor Ireland.
“From day one, Mulvaney abdicated the most important duty of any White House chief of staff, which is to be able to tell the president what he doesn’t want to hear,” said Chris Whipple, author of “The Gatekeepers: How the White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every Presidency.”

“The fundamental problem is not Mulvaney. It’s the fact that this president has never been interested in having an empowered chief of staff,” Whipple continued. “This is what you get when you have a chief whose philosophy is to ‘Let Trump be Trump’: There’s no process and that’s dangerous for domestic policy and especially foreign policy.
During the 2016 election, he called Trump a “terrible human being” after the release of the “Access Hollywood” tape that revealed Trump speaking crudely about sexually assaulting women. Before that, Mulvaney supported a government shutdown during the Obama administration because of what he called a core belief in shrinking the budget deficit.

Yet he abandoned both of those convictions when Trump chose him at the beginning of his tenure to lead the Office of Management and Budget, making him the top White House advisor on spending matters.
Meadows, who turned down an offer to become Trump’s chief of staff last year just before Mulvaney’s appointment was announced, responded to the president’s approval of a massive spending bill by noting that his former House colleague was “not winning on some of the fiscal issues down at the White House.”

Defiant in an interview with the Atlantic, Mulvaney recalled his response to Meadows: “I told him, ‘Yeah, but at least I’m losing at the very highest levels.’”

Does Mulvaney lose all his other jobs when he goes to the Green Isle? If so who gets them, Meadows or Jared?

According to MSNBC, Mulvaney pissed off Duh Furor by telling him he shouldn't tell blatant stupid lies to the public about the coronavirus, that it only makes things worse for him.
The stinkin' rotten spoiled brat of a 2 year old in an old man's body had a tantrum over that! Telling Duh Furor that his wishes can't overrun the facts of a brainless, eyeless, earless virus is grounds for firing!
He expects Meadows to say "Brilliant, Boss!" to every idiocy that comes out of his shit-hole, and Meadows will.

Meadows won’t last and Trump will then appoint Devin Nunes since Devin is so devoted and just as fucked up as Trump.

To some extent, Who Cares? Getting Nunes off the House Intelligence Committee is a GOOD thing. And they are all shameless, brainless, immoral imbeciles, so what difference does it make, Mulvaney, Meadows, Nunes?

I always kind of thought the opposite was true, that closet fascists like Scott Walker and Paul Ryan were the most dangerous because they could dress their shit up to sound intellectual and/or moderate.

The southern racists were generally into cruelty as enjoyment or amusement while the likes of Ryan and Walker will say their political philosophy is born out of tough love toward the working classes. Regardless, it's still hypocritical since whether they're southern racist elites or northern republican elites they see themselves as lords and ladies of the manor while they run on a political philosophy of anti-elitism.

Agreed that they are all bad. But Walker and Ryan are just oligarch shills who screw the poor and taxpayers for money. They are also very racist but live in overwhelmingly white states.

Chicken-egg dilemma.

Meadows is in quarantine, so he might not be so effective as Chief of Staff right now.
