Democratic Rep. Jim Himes on Friday said he's concerned about the shakeups in the Trump administration, telling CNN that it's "scary" that "the adults are leaving the building."

A guest on CNN's "New Day" morning program, the Connecticut Democrat was reacting to the ouster of secretary of state Rex Tillerson and the reports that President Donald Trump is poised to cut loose National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.

"I'm very concerned and I'll tell you what I'm concerned about. It is the fact that the adults are leaving the building," Himes said on CNN.

"With Gary Cohn leaving, with Rex Tillerson leaving, with H.R. McMaster leaving, these are the people that a guy like me and, quite frankly the American people, would look at and say, 'OK, you may have the Anthony Scaramuccis of the world running around, but at least you got some adults in the room,'" Himes said.

Himes said the "domestic turmoil" created by the White House chaos is one thing, but he's more concerned about the international threats that are left exposed by Tillerson and, likely, McMaster.

"The thing that a guy like me worries about … the possibility that the president wakes up one morning and decides it's time to go to war with country A, B or C because of something he saw on Fox News," Himes said.

"I think it's Rex Tillerson and H.R. McMaster and the adults in the room who have talked him down. It's scary to see those guys leaving," Himes said.
