Finally the president has swept away the last remaining influence of the RNC in his White House.
I am referring to the firing (resignation) of Reince Prebius as the Chief of Staff….the former head of the RNC…..Spicer was a good Repub, and a few others….but Prebius had to go…now the White House is truly the home of Trump and Trumpism.
The president did what a good reality star would do…he fomented chaos between the players vying for recognition. until the weak were located and identified and then used that to rid himself of the baggage he never wanted.
He, Trump, brought in “The Mooch” as the new communications director and almost immediately the tension between Reince and Mooch was ignited… and in about 48 hours Reince was out on his butt and a new Chief of Staff was picked….Gen. John Kelly…..as usual for Trump he announced his choice via Twitter….
Reince Priebus is out as White House chief of staff, the AP reports, as President Trump announced in a tweet Friday: “I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American….” Trump continued, “…and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration.”
Kelly, a retired general and the current Homeland Security secretary, was named in a New York Times report last night as Trump’s preferred replacement for Priebus, and CNN reports that Priebus resigned privately Thursday.
Now with a new Chief of Staff in place can the chaos in the Oval Office come to an end?
Not a chance.
The CoS is known as the “Gatekeeper” to the president…..everything goes through him before the president sees it…..does anyone see that working?
Kelly is a general and knows full well the necessity for a chain of command…Trump has no idea what that means. That also means that through a chain of command the Mooch is subordinate to Kelly and since Mooch is a sycophant how do you see that working out?
The CoS is also the lead man from the White House on the legislative agenda….Kelly has some experience with this but the Mooch has nothing going for him but a filthy mouth…..so how will this work out with the Trump legislative agenda?
All we have is to wait and see if Kelly has retained is military training and protocol
As it appears today there looks like little will change and the chaos will prevail.
According to The Hill, Mac Stipanovich, a veteran GOP operative in Florida with ties to the Bush family, noted Jeb Bush’s comment during last year’s presidential primary that Trump would be “the chaos president.”
“I think that is absolutely the case. It’s not even a matter of interpretation,” Stipanovich told The Hill. “We don’t have any effective government, we don’t have any effective leadership and the White House is a snake-pit.”
This show is far from over….the chaos is far from quelled.
