Donny They Hardly Knew Ye
This week the Donald began purging his inner circle of people who either make him unhappy or who might tarnish his image. Christie's gone and Reince Priebus, whom he castigated as part of the evil GOP leadership, is now his chief of staff and he's taken on the CEO of Breitbart as his chief strategist.
