Acosta

is the 445th person to leave this administration.

Barack Obama was president when Acosta signed the deal that has forced his resignation today. 

 

He was appointed to that job by George W. Bush

Only really meaningful if we know how many people usually leave a presidential administration in a similar period- I have no idea myself, I don't know how big "an administration" is.

BBC says “the level of churn in [Trump’s] administration... is extraordinary”, which kind of answers that point.

Has anyone got any data to compare the "churn" under the shitfaced gibbon versus other adminstrations, and also the size of this one and others?

"Barack Obama was president when Acosta signed the deal that has forced his resignation today. "

Just what do you think that this is supposed to be significant of?

I don't think this is right, the deal was in 2008 and Obama became president January 2009.

Yes, sorry you are correct. He was appointed by GW Bush and signed the deal under him.

I know this is a bit hard to grok, what with Fuckface von Clownstick's Department of Justice being what it is, but US attorney's are not political offices.

Who the president was when a US Attorney took or failed to take an action is completely irrelevant.

So who the president is that actually gave him the job is irrelevant, but who the president is when people call him out for how he did that job,12 years after the event, is relevant. 

Fuck me, are you really that thick?

Trump nominated Acosta to be Labour Secretary!
