RE:How does anyone work for the Don?

By passing a lie detector test?

Yes I suppose

Swear to support the Don no matter what direction he's going.

That direction can change minute by minute.

Interesting comment. Not sure if you meant it

literally, but you could have.
Anyway, a strict constructionist could point out that the Pledge applies only to "the flag and to the country for which it stands". No mention of human titles, much less personal names. Yet, in practical terms you're self-obligated to obey the Chief Executive and CinC - even if he is "the Mayor of Crazytown". [©Film, Series of Unfortunate Events]
If, at crunch time, you opt not to, you'll end up in jail with us. At least we'll understand why. Happy

Crazy town.....exactly

I don't know why someone would want to work in that nut house unless it's just to burnish the resume.

New Yorker has an interesting article about

The Letter. Found just about everything wrong with it and the author. Good perspective IMO.
Writer took the NYT to task also, for printing it, but there's some competition between the two pubs over coverage of two big issues, #Metoo and the Trump WH. May affect writing on both.

"Commentary: The unnamed insiders who claim to be working clandestinely to resist Trump are not heroes, says Peter Van Buren, a State Department veteran. “No one should join the government to do only things they think are personally right; one serves the United States, and takes an oath to a Constitution."
