Donald Trump has absolutely no control over his White House and this was once again proven this week. Chief of Staff John Kelly’s right-hand man, Rob Porter, was forced to resign after his two ex-wives went public with allegations that he’s abused them during their marriage. Kelly, who apparently knew about the allegations for months because Porter had been denied security clearance, then had the bright idea to defend the alleged wife beater. This marked the second scandal for Kelly in less than a week and apparently Trump is so mad he is calling his ex-chief of staff Reince Priebus to whine about his new daddy.
According to a report in the New York Times:
Among the many people agitated this week over John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, was President Trump. And among the people the president called to express dissatisfaction, according to those close to him, was none other than Reince Priebus, the previous chief of staff, who also irritated Mr. Trump.
This is how you know Trump is a weak, pathetic man. Instead of just doing what he needs to do and disciplining Kelly for his bad behavior, Trump is acting like a child and whining to his ex. He’s like a child who is mad at his new stepdad so he is calling his former stepdad to complain about it.
Once upon a time, we all believed Kelly was going to come into the White House and make things better, but he’s only made them worse. A man who had a pretty decent reputation, thanks to his career in the military, prior to his time in the Trump Administration has proven to be just as awful as the rest of these assholes.
November 2020 cannot come soon enough. We seriously need to put all of our party turmoil aside and just do everything we can to get these idiots out of our White House.
