the last men standing @thenation

James Comey was axed. Sean Spicer went down in a heap of ashes. Anthony Scaramucci crashed and burned instantaneously. Reince Priebus hung on for dear life but was finally canned. Seven months in, Steve Bannon got the old heave-ho and soon after, his minion, Sebastian Gorka, was unceremoniously shoved out the White House door. In a downpour of potential conflicts of interest and scandal, Carl Icahn bowed out. Gary Cohn has reportedly been at the edge of resignation. And so it goes in the Trump administration.

Except for the generals. Think of them as the last men standing. They did it. They took the high ground in Washington and held it with remarkable panache. Three of them: National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, secretary of defense and retired Marine general John Mattis, and former head of the Department of Homeland Security, now White House chief of staff, retired Marine general John Kelly stand alone, except for President Trump’s own family members, at the pinnacle of power in Washington.

They might be losing every American war, but they’re winners with Donald.
