That quote is being attributed to Retired Vice Admiral Robert Harward as his reason for turning down Donald Trump’s offer to head up the National Security Council. I mean, would YOU want to lead an agency where Steve Bannon (the mind still reels) is feeding intel to whoever he wants to? In fact, I think this is the operative reason as mentioned in this Washington Post story:
One factor in Harward’s decision was he couldn’t get a guarantee that he could select his own staff, according to a person close to Trump with knowledge of the discussions.
Meaning, Bannon had to stay.
Which led to this tweet from Jake Tapper:
A friend of Harward’s says he was reluctant to take NSA job b/c the WH seems so chaotic; says Harward called the offer a “shit sandwich.”
This can’t last for 48 months. Can it?
