First of all, WOW. Remember when I specifically told you calling Sergey to tell him to tell Vlad not to worry about “those pesky little sanctions” was going to be trouble? Your response: “Just do your job, Mikey.”
In the course of my duties as the Incoming National Security Advisor, I held numerous phone calls with foreign counterparts, ministers, and ambassadors. These calls were to facilitate a smooth transition and begin to build the necessary relationships between the President, his advisors and foreign leaders. Such calls are standard practice in any transition of this magnitude.
Even after the call, when I reminded you that we could all go down for this, you told me to “make sure everybody who needs to know knows, just don’t say anything to ‘Pencey the Prig.’ Now you want me to hang all this on the idea that I lied to him and now you don’t trust me?
Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President Elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador.
I’m sorry, but this is complete bullshit.
I have sincerely apologized to the president and the Vice President, and they have accepted my apology.
I mean come on! I’ve been at this my whole life! You think you can just come in here, knowing absolutely NOTHING about how the government or foreign policy or any of it works and just “wing it”? Are you beginning to get the picture that as the President of the United States, you can’t just, “Do whatevs”?!
Throughout my over thirty three years of honorable military service, and my tenure as the National Security Advisor, I have always performed my duties with the utmost of integrity and honesty to those I have served, to include the President of the United States.
You think I’m gonna go down for this insanity without swinging, you got another thing comin’.
I am tendering my resignation, honored to have served our nation and the American people in such a distinguished way.
You’ve pretty much managed to screw up everything you’ve done in your first three weeks in office, and as soon as I get outta here I’m heading down to Costa because the way things are going North America’s on course to be a nuclear wasteland by spring break.
I am also extremely honored to have served President Trump, who in just three weeks, has reprinted American foreign policy in fundamental ways to restore America’s leadership position in the world.
So, sayonara sista! Hasta manana iguana! It’s been real and it’s been fun but it hasn’t been real fun! I QUIT!
As I step away once again from serving my nation in this current capacity, I wish to thank President Trump for his personal loyalty, the friendship of those who I worked with throughout the hard fought campaign, the challenging period of transition, and during the early days of his presidency.
P.S. You people are fucked.
I know with the strong leadership of President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and the superb team they are assembling, this team will go down in history as one of the greatest presidencies in U.S history, and I firmly believe the american people will be well served as they all work together to help Make America Great Again.
