BREAKING: General John Kelly to be Chief of Staff. Priebus Out

The President has terminated Reince Priebus and replaced him with General John Kelly, who is currently serving as Secretary of Homeland Security. That will now open back up Homeland Security.

Priebus’s departure has been a long time coming. White House staffers were telling me months ago the President was trying to push him out. The latest feud with Scaramucci helped seal his fate.

Kelly is a Marine and, if the President will let him actually be Chief, should be competent at the core functions of the job.

Interestingly, the President tweeted out his appointment from Air Force One while on the ground at Andrews Air Force Base. Reince Priebus had just walked off the plane.
