kelly wasn't sane or reasonable. he only looked that way compared to the cavalcade of f*** ups trump surrounded himself with. It is beyond clear that anyone being nominated by trump for any position is a f***ed up and terrible person and most likely a criminal. If they weren't, trump wouldn't have nominated them.

True, but I'm guessing whoever the replacement is will be worse still regardless. Also for fun, here is more Trump vs. Trump!

Well, Kelly, like Tillerson, at least had enough common sense to tell Trump little things such as, "no, that's illegal".

So if Kelly is replaced with a yesman while it may lead to more short-term s***tiness it may also open the door for Trump committing more crimes and scandals.

Keep in mind that Kelly is the sole reason Kushner didn't get security clearance until Trump overrode him.

He may have been a seething racist, but at least he understood proper procedure and realistic repercussions.

New probable Chief of Staff (in the short term at least) has a face that looks rather punchable for some reason.

Also, good luck having a 36 year old millionaire order around others in this administration.

Are we officially on the C-team now? D-team?

When do we finally get past these idiots, boot-lickers, con-artists, and do-nothings so he can hire "the best people"?
