Trump's loyalty problem

“There’s lots of back-channeling, backbiting, and lots of leaking,” John Dickerson, the host of Face the Nation, said on the Slate Political Gabfest.

“Anyone who doesn’t get that the loyalty should be for him personally, rather than the country, is, to Trump, a loser,” my colleague Maureen Dowd wrote.

“The president seems to have given the green light,” Vox’s Andrew Prokop noted, referring to Trump’s reported enjoyment of Anthony Scaramucci’s tirade. “His subordinates should attack their rivals as viciously as possible, and they’ll face no consequences for it whatsoever.”
