Unlike Donald Trump many of the men and women who came to work for this White House are serious-minded people with credibility and deserved respect. They are not desiring that their resumes be tarred and smeared with what Trump is doing while in the Oval Office. One of those who will not want to be defined in his final career chapter with the awful after-taste of Trump is White House Chief-of-Staff John Kelly.
A person close to the White House has told the Los Angeles Times that Trump and Kelly had engaged in “shouting matches” in recent days.
“Kelly has sought to limit Trump’s free time and to prevent outsiders from bringing him unfiltered and sometimes inaccurate information that can rile him up… More often, though, Kelly and others on his side are frustrated.”
“The president, meanwhile, is said to be discomfited not only by the attempts to control him, but by the recent departure of his longtime lieutenant, Keith Schiller, who had been White House director of operations and, perhaps most important, a key interpreter and soother of Trump’s feelings.”
This is the most dysfunctional and bizarre President this nation has ever had, and the White House staff are reduced to everything other than being wet nurses–and given the perversion Trump demonstrated with Russian prostitutes one has to wonder about that too.
Kelly will be out of the White House by the second week of January. He has no reason to stay in such a humiliating and trying situation.
