President Trump and his closest advisers are reportedly unable to fathom the extent of the Deep State conspiracy against them. Worries have been growing on both sides of the aisle that they might, in fact, be out of their depth. The administration has been awash in controversy — many old scandals have been dredged up and new ones continue to rock the boat. Several inside sources put this down simply to the fact that these are uncharted waters for Trump and his crew, but outside observers are alarmed to see such a foundering administration. An unprecedented number of White House officials are already bailing.

Will Trump be able to right the ship? Will a focus on successful new policy be enough to stem the rising tide of controversy? We can’t stretch this joke out furlong, but anonymous sources insist they don’t know their true peril.
