Reince Priebus threatens ethics official

In the circles familiar with people with narcissistic personality disorder, (NPD's) the term "flying monkeys" is used to denote enablers---those who drop everything---their own agendas, their judgment, their values---to carry out the NPD's game plan. Reince Priebus has clearly devolved to that status.
Donald Trump’s incoming chief of staff warned that the top U.S. ethics official “ought to be careful” after publicly criticizing the president-elect’s plan to step down from leading his businesses while keeping his ownership interests.
“That person is becoming extremely political,” incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” about Walter Shaub Jr., director of the Office of Government Ethics.
“I’m not sure what this person at Government Ethics, what sort of standing he has any more to be giving these opinions,” Priebus said.
What sort of standing? Walter Shaub heads the agency tasked with overseeing overseeing the conduct  of office holders. That's his standing. This is his job. He's trying to protect the American people, and Trump himself, from being mired in a bottomless swamp of corruption, favoritism, kickbacks, bribery and selling off, and out, America.
