I thought Mattis and Kelly were the adults in the room who were suppose to keep this egomaniac under some sort of reasonable control?

It has become disturbingly apparent that Trump cannot be controlled and needs to go for the good of the country.

This was evident very early on. He has been rightfully labeled a malignant narcissist.

I think it means because the president cannot control his impulses (or mouth) and doesn't know how to do his job or the limits of his power, he needs experienced aides and cabinet to help him stay on a pragmatic (and legal) path.

In the absence of such moderating influences, he's likely to be even sillier (and potentially more dangerous) than he usually is.

This **** show of an administration is about to get interesting. Nothing we can do but watch what this clown does.
BTW, I do not think the appropriate word is "retiring".;)

When you retire you get balloons, cake , and a watch....and time to spend with your grandchildren whether they want it or not.

He is resigning because he wants to maintain his integrity as an American and as an individual.
