Negative Advocates for Trump
© 2017 Bill Eddy, LCSW, Esq.
With all the Trump White House changes going on the past week, I thought it might be appropriate to explain the concept of Negative Advocates, and how it might help people make sense of what’s happening. Then I took a look at my blog from this same week, last year: July 25, 2016! It’s right there already. What do you think? Were Sean Spicer and Reince Priebus negative advocates? Did they fit the pattern, including “abandoning ship” or being “dispensed with”? Who’s next? Will General John Kelly become another Negative Advocate or realistically Set Limits in the White House?
See what you think. Click here to read last year's blog about negative advocates.
