White House fires Jofi Joseph

The Internet is buzzing about President Obama sacking high ranking White House official Jofi Joseph, a director with the National Security Staff.

The Daily Beast blog reports that Joseph was fired last week when Obama discovered he was a White House mole leaking classified information under a fake Twitter name since 2011.

The Daily Beast saved a long list of Joseph's tweets before they were deleted. “I'm a fan of Obama, but his continuing reliance and dependence upon a vacuous cipher like Valerie Jarrett concerns me,” he once tweeted.

I took the liberty of looking up "vacuous cipher" for those of you who were wondering what it meant. It means a person of no importance who has or shows a lack of intelligence; or a mindless individual who lacks a personality.

Welp, so much for Obama running a tight ship in the White House. Here he is worrying about NSA leaker Edward Snowden over in Russia when he had a spy operating right under his nose for over 2 years. And if there was one spy in the White House, you know there must be more.

Like former LHHATL cast member K. Michelle (who was shipped off to the NY franchise), Traci won't be missed.
