WH response to Russia sanctions confusion: Blame Nikki Haley

Washington (CNN)A consensus emerged Tuesday at the White House and Mar-a-Lago about how to clean up the administration's suddenly muddled plans to crack down on Russia: Blame Nikki Haley.
Several administration officials said the US ambassador to the United Nations got ahead of President Donald Trump's decision-making when she hit the Sunday talk show circuit and said the US would level new sanctions the next day targeting Russian companies that facilitated the Syrian regime's chemical weapons program. The sanctions have yet to come.
"She got ahead of the curve," National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow told reporters on Tuesday near the President's Florida estate, a day after a report claiming Trump "put the brakes" on plans for new Russia sanctions. "She's done a great job, she's a very effective ambassador. There might have been some momentary confusion about that."

Haley struck back with a stunning statement later in the day that opened a new rift in the administration and raised questions about the White House's explanation of her comments.
"With all due respect, I don't get confused," she said in a statement obtained by CNN's Jake Tapper.

This has more implications than you guys seem to realise. It shows who is pulling Trumps strings at the moment and explains the Syrian mess.
Wait, what?

Y'all been telling us for years that *Donald* was the real 4D chess-puppet master-manipulator-genius... How is this post from you possible then?

I can only draw a conclusion from what I see in the news.
Either the CIA guy is a better 4d chess-puppet master manipulator genius or Trump is aligning himself with the CIA for some protection against all his legal issues, because he isn't getting the necessary support from the GOP.

You never shave with Occam's Razor, do you?

Like that time Mitch wouldn't even consider bringing a bill to protect Mueller to the floor? When was that again..? Oh, that's right... Yesterday.

TIL that the simplest explanation is a heresy.
Some things are complicated and US politics is one of those things. The simplest explanation can still be complicated just because of the sheer size of the beast. Just going "Trump is a stupid moron" isn't a valid simple explanation to anything.
