Current and former White House officials are already planning their next moves ahead of President Trump's departure next week. But some are already facing backlash for their association with his administration. Vanity Fair special correspondent William Cohan calls this the "Trump Stink." He joined CBSN'S Lana Zak to discuss.

  • It is the last hour that the current president and ALL his enablers ARE held accountable for the insurrection and COUP attempt at the Capital AND for ALL ACTS OF INSURRECTION that will be caused by his childish attitude of NOT conceding and leaving the door open for further TERRORIST acts to our country. This is not who we are. This president has cuddled and has stated he loves dictators, and has pre-meditated this and the last election results since he started running for president, This is not who we are. (dictatorship) The Republican party has created a monster and it is time that they, how much more damage do they want on their heads?! put him and all his enablers (because there is a lot of people who are just misinformed) BACK in the bottle and cast it off to sea. It is part of our Constitution that the Executive branch of the Federal Government to facilitate an efficient transfer of power to a successor President The Presidential Transition Act of 1963 provides the current mechanisms to facilitate an orderly and peaceful transition of power and needless to say if the Looser in Chief does not acknowledge the TRUE results of the election these "patriots" will continue to burn their anger and rage against this wonderful country we call the UNITED STATES of AMERICA

Their poor judgement then is poor judgement in the future. It is odd however, how many of them are trying fervently to burnish a stinky and lackluster resume at the WH and #45 into something that is less smelly. It's just like in MacBeth, nothing will remove the blood stain from 'these hands'.
