Don’t weep for cabinet official Trump chided


( CNN) If ever the sardonic word “cry me a river” was appropriate, it would accommodate this week’s story about Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. As widely reported, Nielsen was castigated by President Donald Trump during a cabinet meeting over his perception that she was not doing enough to secure the border.

What are we supposed to make of this newest pseudo drama?

Nielsen came into the job knowing the kind of leader Trump is — not loyal, prone to rants and public humiliations , not focused on the details, and keen on satisfying campaign promises regardless of the law, budget or practicality. She also came into the job, immediately following her mentor John Kelly became White House chief of staff, knowing Trump’s opinions on immigration.
