Former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus handed over his resignation letter to President Trump Thursday night following a blistering set of insults about him were made by White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci.
Scaramucci also called out Priebus during an interview with CNN.
Priebus is being immediately replaced by DHS Sec. Kelly who takes over the new role Monday.
DML also opined on the matter, and his own personal take on Priebus:
Let me say I never thought Priebus was a good choice for COS. But he ain’t the cause of all the problems.
Priebus was supposed to bridge the gap between Trump and GOP lawmakers. But it never happened, and it never will happen because Trump doesn’t operate like presidents of the past. His style is like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Although you may deem his style refreshing, for GOP lawmakers it’s too much too fast, and that’s why there is no bridge — that’s why healthcare is dead.
Everyone points to the White House leaks as the reason why Priebus had to go. But the leaks are not preventing healthcare from passing.
You read it here first… Pushing Priebus out of the White House is not a good thing, it’s not a bad thing, it’s meaningless because it changes absolutely nothing.
With Sec. Kelly taking over the role tomorrow, are you happy to see Priebus go?
