(TNS) There isn’t anything that chaps the assets of ‘official Washington’ more than calling Donald Trump ‘president,’ with the exception of having to treat him like one.

We saw that on display — again — recently when the president had to fire Navy Secretary Richard Spencer for gross insubordination.
Spencer and the politicized Navy brass sought to undermine the commander-in-chief after he pardoned the wrongly accused Navy SEAL Chief Edward Gallagher by taking away his Trident, the coveted emblem the highly trained special operations warrior wears on his uniform.
In an op-ed for none other than the anti-Trump, anti-reality Washington Post, Spencer admitted he defied the president at least three times, attempting to tell Trump to ‘butt out’ of ‘Navy business’ and leaving the screwing over of a veteran operator to him and the brass.

As she so often does, investigative reporting ace Sharyl Attkisson noticed something about Spencer’s actions that others had yet to point out: They sure areÂ very similar to other deep state figures who have sought to undermine the president with testimony to Adam Schiff’s impeachment ‘Schiff show’ last week.
Namely, that they can’t stand it when a president actually thinksÂ he’s in charge.
My take: Like the diplomats who testified against Trump, the ex-Navy Secretary seems to think he/they run the show and lose their mind when the President exerts his constitutional authority over something they disagree with. You?

That’s a really accurate assessment. The problem isn’t that Trump is doing anything wrong or illegal.
He’s just doing thingsÂ his way — which, by the way, is precisely why we elected him: To act onÂ his policies and political vision.
We’ve heard people say that none of these schmoes were insubordinate to Barack Obama and his foreign policy objectives, but obviously, in most cases, Obama was carrying outÂ the deep state’s foreign policy vision, especially in Ukraine and Russia.
Donald Trump didn’t run for president to let everyone else do his work for him. Or tell him how to do his work.
That’s what really has all of the foreign policy and intelligence community careerists up in arms: We managed to elect a president who refuses to be kowtowed into pursuing policies that do nothing to enhance American interests and security.
And they hate him for it.
