Will Trump bowl Kelly over too?



Good riddance to Priebus whose backbone is jelly.

The new Chief of Staff will be General Kelly.

Will Trump listen to him,

With respect that is due him

Or will he be knocked down like pins in a alley?

  • While at the fitness center, FNC had about the same question.* While the consevative and former Obama staffer went into that the General was there to impose discipline, the conservative went into redundacies, while the moderator and former staffer attempted to broach whether Kelly could impose discipline on Mooch and da Pres. I don't recall an answer.

    *Now send yourself to the woodshed.

  • Generally, I am not so sure that having generals around is a good idea in such a mess of an office. (Sorry about the pun -- my fingers made me do it.)

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Some reference to the new Chicago Bear, General Soreness?
    Or just to General Halftrack in Beetle Bailey?

  • At least Kelly has now ridded us of the Mooch.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    "Yesh!" as Mooch the Cat often says. But we get the official statement from whomever is in charge of WH communications per the Washington Post: "Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best." Didn't Spicer say the same thing on his own way out?
    1) That must be the new WH corporate speak. Unlike on TV, can't say "you're fired."
    2) Since Spicer was going to stay on through August, doesn't he outlast Mooch?
    3) Note also the observation in the WP that once Priebus was out, Mooch served his purpose.
    4) There were several columns about with all the drama last week, how they were going to top it this week. We are starting to find out.

  • In reply to jack:

    Yes, Mooch got rid of Spicer and Priebus. Maybe that is all Trump wanted him for anyway.

  • In reply to jnorto:

    Not sure why he wanted Mooch there, especially when he later said thru Huckabee Jr. "The President certainly felt that Anthony's comments were inappropriate for someone in that position and he didn't want to burden Gen. Kelly also with that line of succession"

    I guess we also know that Kelly was wrong when he said "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own c--k," Bannon wanted certain acolytes in their mothers' basement to do what Mooch said.

    The other interesting thing was the various columnists interviewing former chiefs of staff saying that Kelly must first get rid of Mooch (which he did) and then require that the iPhone be vetted before the "Post to Twitter" button is pushed. Nobody has yet said that the second has been assured.

    The final tidbit is that Fred Trump,. Jr. sent his wayward son to military school and decided to do it again.
