Trump Tweet About Obama's Staff Turnover Rate

This Old Trump Tweet Is Coming Back to Haunt Him — Because, Well, Just Read It

It's no secret that President Donald Trump isn't the best at keeping officials in his administration around for very long. Though it feels like he's been in the Oval Office for centuries, it's only been a little more than a year — and in that time more than 30 of his staff members have either resigned or been fired from their posts. Notable departures include Sean Spicer, former White House Press Secretary, James Comey, former FBI Director, and Steve Bannon, former White House Chief Stategist — just to jog your memory, since these departures seem to happen so often that they all blend together.

Trump's most recent staff switch up came when he announced on March 13 that he had fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. As soon he shared the news — on Twitter, naturally — many were quick to call out his alarmingly high turnover rate, and some even resurrected an old tweet from the president in which he slammed Barack Obama for the amount of staff change-ups he made during his time in office. Way back in January 2012, just one day after Obama announced that his second Chief of Staff, Bill Daley, would be stepping down, Trump tweeted, "3 Chief of Staffs in less than 3 years of being President: Part of the reason why @BarackObama can't manage to pass his agenda."

Little did he know that six years later he'd wind up in the White House, already on his second Chief of Staff before even reaching his two-year mark, with his third COS, John Kelly, possibly on his way out soon.

We've said it before and we'll likely say it again: for almost all of Trump's controversial statements or decisions, there's always a corresponding tweet from his past that totally contradicts it. And everyone on social media isn't about to let him off the hook for it . . .
