Trump Insider: President Is ‘Too Chickensh*t’ To Fire John Kelly Himself
A Republican close to Donald Trump spoke with Vanity Fair over the ongoing scandal surrounding the president and his chief of staff John Kelly.
According to the insider, Trump wants to get rid of Kelly since his new best friend Bill Shine entered the White House a week ago.
“Trump absolutely loves the guy,” the source said of Trump’s relationship with Shine.
The source told Vanity Fair that Shine and Kelly have bumped heads multiple times and that Trump is waiting for Kelly to get so frustrated that he decides to quit.
“They’ve basically stopped telling Kelly when meetings are. People leave him off the calendar,” an administration official told Vanity Fair. “When he finds out, he storms into the room and is like, ‘What’s going on?’”
“Trump is too chickensh*t to fire Kelly himself,” a source told Vanity Fair. President Trump has used this method in the past. “This is a more subtle version of Scaramucci,” an outside adviser to the White House said.
