I misread "Donald Trump stopped to pet a dog" as "Donald Trump stomped a pet dog," and thought "Why would that be shocking?"

Someone made a mistake or disagreed with Donald Trump, and he didn’t get mad.

And he didn’t have someone fire them, thereby also compromising that other person and Department. And the person he has fired didn’t wind up testifying to Congress, being forced to prove their credibility.
