On the surface, dumping Preet Bharara is NOT an integrity issue, BUT 30 years of political reporting something just tells me that Preet being dumped, does not pass the smell test. In fairness to President Trump, at the beginning of any new presidential administration, it is tradition for all U.S. Attorneys to submit a letter of resignation. When the new President is from a different political party, in general, the only issue is when, NOT if, will that U.S. Attorney be replaced. In other words, almost all of the resignations will be eventually accepted.

The ratings are down, for the "new" celebrity edition of the Apprentice, and the President-Elect is not too happy, taking to Twitter to blast the ratings.

The other night, the clicking from my TV remote happened to stop at "the Apprentice," and my interest peeked. What would be host Arnold Schwarzenegger’s catchphrase to fire people?

In Schwarzenegger’s case, it’s “You’re terminated. Get to the chopper.”
