ABC News is reporting that adult day care operator John Kelly has offered to resign over the Rob Porter FUBAR situation:
“President Donald Trump, furious over the handling of domestic abuse allegations involving one of his closest aides, has spoken to confidantes about the possibility of replacing embattled Chief of Staff John Kelly, sources close to the president tell ABC News.”
Now, don’t read into that statement that Hair Führer is angry that there was a serial wife beater on his staff, he probably doesn’t care. No, this is about it reflecting badly on him. It’s always all about him.
“One confidante — longtime friend and former executive chairman of his inaugural committee, Tom Barrack — was approached to gauge his interest in the chief of staff position, a source familiar with the matter told ABC News. Barrack said he won’t take the job, the source said.”
I cannot imagine bringing in another billionaire would help matters any.
“Several Trump confidantes reached by ABC News said the president is considering multiple names as possible Kelly replacements, among those, top economic adviser Gary Cohn, Office of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney and Rep. Mark Meadows.”
Gary Cohn is a Dim, so scratch that. Mick Mulvaney is busy wrecking at least two departments, and Mark Meadows is from the Freedom Caucus, so what could go wrong?
Here’s the thing: no one wants to join the Fourth Reich and work for a Banana Republican like Comrade Stupid. Joining this administration is a career ending move. Comrade Stupid and John Kelly may be stuck with each other longer term than either of them would like.
