John Kelly is new White House chief of staff; Reince Priebus out

Deidre Ball, his soon to be ex-wife, worked as a vice president in investor relations for SkyBridge Capital, the firm Scaramucci founded in 2005 but that he sold to get a job at the White House.

A Marine, Kelly served in the military for almost five decades and served in positions including chief of Southern Command and senior assistant to the secretary of defence, CNN reported. How John Kelly will manage this new staff structure is anyone's guess.

Not only is this wrong, it's offensive on multiple levels.

Kelly wrote in a statement, "I have been fortunate to have served my country for more than 45 years - first as a Marine and then as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security". He was the military's longest-serving general.

"Here is a guy from (Somers) who revitalized the Republican National Committee and became White House chief of staff". Trump announced via a tweet that he was replacing his chief of staff Reince Priebus with General John Kelly.

"Reince is a f***ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac", Mr Scaramucci told New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza. "I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for [the president's] agenda".

"John Kelly will do a fantastic job".

His departure comes weeks after Sean Spicer resigned from the post of Communications Director in favour of Anthony Scaramucci, who believed Preibus was 'leaking'.

President Trump: Republican Senators 'Look Like Fools' for Losing Health Care Vote

The Dangers of the Senate Health Care Vote
The debate taking place over national health care today may be the single most important policy affecting our generation. The Senate Majority Leader wrote a ridiculous eight-page health care bill yesterday afternoon.

White House staffers normally report to the chief of staff but Trump arranged staff so that they would report to the president instead.

"I think you may know I've been, obviously, talking to the President for a few days about this".

The president followed with tweets thanking Reince Priebus, who has served as chief of staff since Trump's inauguration.

Trump's demeaning of Priebus came through in other ways, too.

That same day, Trump named Anthony Scaramucci the new White House communications director. "I think he's made a smart decision with General Kelly, and I think he's going to do a great job and I'm looking forward to the future".

Trump also called Priebus "a good man".

"Why not respond?" Blitzer pressed. "He wanted to include me in figuring out how and who would be a great successor and a good chief of staff". Scaramucci says he will continue a campaign against "leakers" in the White House that may lead to several more firings.
