KABOOM!!! President Trump's communications director Mike Dubke quits. Bad sign?

Donald Trump's communications director has resigned after three months in his White House post.
Mike Dubke, a communications firm owner who was brought into the Trump administration in March, worked closely with White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

But their operation has come under criticism in the wake of the firing of James Comey, the former CIA boss, and amid a widening Russia scandal.
The resignation is seen by many in the US as the beginning of a staff shake-up at the White House.
Mr Dubke's resignation, first reported by Politico, was confirmed by White House adviser Kellyanne Conway.
He reportedly offered his resignation on 18 May but agreed to stay on as Mr Trump undertook the first foreign trip of his presidency - a high-profile tour of Europe and the Middle East.
"He has expressed his desire to leave the White House and made very clear that he would see through the President's international trip," Ms Conway told Fox News.
Returning to the White House, Mr Trump has been faced with new allegations that his campaign may have colluded with Moscow before the election, as his son-in-law and close aide Jared Kushner's Russia contacts came under scrutiny.
In Europe, the US President and his Western allies failed to see eye to eye on issues including climate change, with a final G7 declaration acknowledging a lack of consensus on the Paris agreement.
Mr Trump's comments at a NATO summit in Brussels, including demanding increased defence spending, also rattled some allies.
Angela Merkel had some strong words this week as she suggested in the wake of the visit that Europe's relationship with Washington had shifted significantly and that "we in Europe have to take our fate into our own hands".
In response, Mr Trump renewed his criticism of Ms Merkel, saying in a tweet: "We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for US. This will change."
