White House: Trump is the one ‘keeping the world from chaos’…Open Thread for Oct. 6, 2017

Folling a well established routine ….

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has made sure everyone, but mostly her boss Donald Trump KNOWS that HE is the man in charge of the American Government….

Not Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and chief of staff John Kelly whom Sen. Bob Corker named as the guys who “help separate our country from chaos.”…..

Asked about the comments from Corker, Sanders on Friday reminded the White House press corps at the daily briefing who’s in charge.
