WH spokesman: John Kelly hasn't offered to resign

Washington (CNN) - The White House is denying chief of staff John Kelly has offered to resign. "He has not offered to resign," spokesman Hogan Gidley told CNN.

The White House statement comes as Kelly and other top administration officials are facing questions about why they did not act to remove deputy chief of staff Rob Porter from his position after they found out about allegations that Porter struck his two-ex-wives while they were married.

Senior aides knew for months about the allegations levied against Porter, even as his stock in the West Wing continued to rise, multiple sources have told CNN. Porter denied the allegations but resigned on Wednesday.

Even after the allegations surfaced publicly, sources told CNN that Kelly did not urge Porter to resign or seek to force him out. Instead, the White House released a statement from Kelly praising Porter's character.

7. The Russians need Trump in charge, not John Kelly.

John Kelly is keeping this festering shit show together, whether we like it or not.

6. We were once hopeful.....

that Kelly would be a calming, steadying influence on Trump. He was going to stop Shitler from being such a childish bully.

We can clearly see that didn't happen, and Kelly was transformed into another mindless Trump sycophant.

11. Wait, when the WH denies it, that means it's true, right?

Very well, I haven't made an outlandish prediction in a while.

Based solely upon the White House's inability to tell the truth about anything, I predict that John Kelly will resign before midnight on Saturday, February 17, 2018.

12. Something that might provide some consolation regarding John Kelly's increasingly weasely behavior

Just think: this is one individual whose unfortunate fate is to live his whole life with a penis on his face.
