They are not putting in a "stooge." They have put the assistant in charge for now, and they're looking for their new nominee. That person will probably be excellent.
The problem is that you start from the assumption that Trump is corrupt (apparently because he disagrees with you.) Therefore, anything he does must have a corrupt motive. Then, when your claims are debunked -- as they always are -- you simply call people names and/or insist that what you said is true, even though it's already been shown not to be. I must admit, though, "animated squirrels" is kind of clever.
