    How SHOCKING - NOT! A federal administrator tells his employees that their job DOES NOT include VOCALLY, PUBLICLY disagreeing with or arguing with the President. If they do, he'll fire them.

    No different than any employee publicly disparaging the owner or president of the company. You don't do it and then expect to keep your job.

    DUmmies however are positive - aren't they always - that it's grounds for impeaching Trump and firing Ross.

    23. I would want worse to happen to him.

    Probably tie him up and then drop him off at the NOAA office to do as they see fit.

    13. OMG. Sharpiegate is widening.

    How hilarious will it be if Trump is taken down by a pen?

    Maybe it really is mightier than the sword!
    Paladin (20,123 posts) 18. How completely and utterly PATHETIC is this?

    Having one of your suckhole minions threaten the livelihoods of competent government employees over a matter that should have been abandoned days ago. And being too stupid to recognize just how small and petulant it makes you look. Pathetic.
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    Hey DUmmies, remember the travel gate scandal when the Clinton's fired (not just threatened) the entire White House travel office staff and you bedwetters didn't bat an eye?

    Didn't think you'd remember...

    I don't understand why Trump couldn't just say "I made a mistake. I looked at an earlier projection instead of the information that was current." .

    But he can't do that. He's like Fonzie, and can't say the words.

    What Trump is doing, by design or not, is
    making the Left waste a lot of oxygen
    on a nothing issue. Please continue with
    the Libtard "Outrage".
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Last I heard, there's a Federal law against bureaucrats using the aegis of their agency to do such things. And given how partisan-leaky the Federal bureaucracy has been the past 2+ years, a severely worded warning was quite warranted.

    I'm sure there were many instances during the Clinton and Obama Administrations when bureaucrats were instructed in serious tones not to comment in the media about various incidents. STFU would have been too severe, but basically that would have been appropriate, too.

    Devil's in the details, as usual.

    The Secretary of Commerce threatened to fire top employees at the federal scientific agency responsible for weather forecasts last Friday after the agency’s Birmingham office contradicted President Trump’s claim that Hurricane Dorian might hit Alabama, according to three (more on them later) people familiar with the discussion.
    The Commerce Department disputed the account on behalf of the Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur L. Ross Jr. “Secretary Ross did not threaten to fire any NOAA staff over forecasting and public statements about Hurricane Dorian,” the department said in a statement issued by a spokesman.
    Mr. Ross, the commerce secretary, intervened two days later, early last Friday, according to the three people familiar with his actions. Mr. Ross phoned Neil Jacobs, the acting administrator of NOAA, from Greece where the secretary was traveling for meetings and instructed Dr. Jacobs to fix the agency’s perceived contradiction of the president.

    Dr. Jacobs objected to the demand and was told that the political staff at NOAA would be fired if the situation was not fixed, according to the three individuals,(there they are again, running their mouths where they aren't supposed to, and hiding so no one can call them on their BS) who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the episode.
    Middle school, he said-she said stuff taken as gospel if it goes against Trump. And they really wonder why Trump calls them fake news and the enemy of the people.
