From various news sources today, I see that General Michael Flynn has resigned as National Security Adviser. The proximate cause was that he was sharing information he shouldn't with Russia. He's the third senior Trump adviser to have to quit. (Paul Manafort and Carter Page were the other two.)

I follow the USMC Code of Events: once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is enemy action. Given that Trump can't seem to find a bad word to say about Russia, I think the Marines are onto something. I also note that the only surprise in Flynn's departure was that he actually quit as opposed to brazen it out.

Which leads to the title of the post. What can I say? Trump clearly has no clue when it comes to hiring people, little clue when it comes to running a government, and is in general desperately short of clues. I'd say he's fresh out of clues, but that implies that at one time he had a stock of them - which is not supported by evidence.

We're only three weeks into this roller-coaster ride, folks. Buckle up.
