    Happy One-Year Trump Anniversary, everyone!! The government's shutdown (which seems fitting) but at least no one's been nuked. Yet.

    So, uhhh... Michael Wolff was interviewed on Real Time tonight. Maher asked him if there was something in his book that he’d hoped people would ask about but haven’t, and he essentially spilled that Trump is currently having an affair. He says it’s near the end of the book and when you read the paragraph after Wolff’s tip-off you’ll immediately know who he’s talking about. Now I think I need to read it. Hope Hicks? Huckabee Sanders? Conway? I wonder who it is?

    I’m thinking Hicks.
    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    There’s also an interesting paragraph about Nikki Haley.

    Nikki Haley, the UN ambassador. Haley — “as ambitious as Lucifer,” in the characterization of one member of the senior staff — had concluded that Trump’s tenure would last, at best, a single term, and that she, with requisite submission, could be his heir apparent. Haley had courted and befriended Ivanka, and Ivanka had brought her into the family circle, where she had become a particular focus of Trump’s attention, and he of hers. Haley, as had become increasingly evident to the wider foreign policy and national security team, was the family’s pick for secretary of state after Rex Tillerson’s inevitable resignation. (Likewise, in this shuffle, Dina Powell would replace Haley at the UN.)

    The president had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a national political future. Haley, who was much more of a traditional Republican, one with a pronounced moderate streak — a type increasingly known as a Jarvanka Republican — was, evident to many, being mentored in Trumpian ways. The danger here, offered one senior Trumper, “is that she is so much smarter than him.”

    ...

    The stakes were very clear to Bannon. Haley, quite an un-Trumpian figure, but by far the closest of any of his cabinet members to him, might, with clever political wiles, entice Trump to hand her the Trumpian revolution. Indeed, fearing Haley’s hold on the president, Bannon’s side had — the very morning that Bannon had stood on the steps of the Breitbart town house in the unseasonable October weather — gone into overdrive to push the CIA’s Mike Pompeo for State after Tillerson’s departure.
    I thought it was Hicks based on her description and general character throughout the book, but rereading the epilogue (and to be fair, maybe it wasn't in the epilogue but I don't want to read the whole book again right now), it sounds like Haley. If it's true.

    Yeah, “spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One” and “being mentored in Trumpian ways” isn’t being very subtle.
