Trump tries to fire John Kelly 'but Kelly just ignores him', White House official says

Source: Independent


'I think the president just doesn’t know who to call to fire him,' claims staffer

Donald Trump has reportedly tried to fire John Kelly, but failed because the White House chief of staff “just ignores him”.

The president wants rid of the former Marine Corps general but “doesn’t know who to call to fire him” as Mr Kelly himself usually carries out his sackings, according to an administration staffer.

The official was speaking on condition of anonymity to New York magazine journalist Olivia Nuzzi, who was invited to a bizarre private meeting with Mr Trump when he learned she was planning to report on tension between the president and his chief of staff.

“I just heard that you were doing a story on… this stuff,” Mr Trump told her in the Oval Office.

20. Kelly has battled much, much more....

than the STDs Trump faced "serving his country". Kelly would wipe the floor with Trump, so Little Donnie needs someone else to do his dirty work for him. His cult followers think Trump is the epitome of manhood.

They don't believe the metric tons of evidence to the contrary. They are - without a doubt - the most deluded people on the planet. They refuse to believe evidence that's presented right to their faces.

16. Ever read Bartleby, The Scrivener

Great short story by Melville. Bartleby is the employee. Anytime his boss, who hates confrontation, tells him to do anything, Bartleby just says, I prefer not to. The boss ends up doing it himself. Eventually, Bartleby starts living in the office. The boss, not knowing what else to do, moves his office.

Maybe this is Kelly's attempt to drive 45 crazy and out of the white house.

29. oh lordy. Stone talking to Jones. ...






Roger Stone: It’s possible White House chief of staff John Kelly is having Trump drugged

Stone: “I have now heard not from one, but two different sources, that he seemed disoriented and was slurring his speech in conversations. To me this is a tip off that he may be being medicated. Is General [John] Kelly above this? No”

28. I read that Olivia had an unauthorized interview--apparently Trump told Sanders to

call Olivia in---and Kelly-who is supposed to set up trumps schedule knew nothing about this interview.
