During an interview on Sunday, White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus denied all claims that the White House is in a state of constant chaos.
“The truth is, is that, we don’t have problems in the West Wing,” Priebus told NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“I mean, you read about all these stories that I don’t get along with Bannon. … Actually, we’ve really gelled as a team and we get along great and we’re working well together.”
Host John Dickerson proceeded to ask the chief of staff if it is “constant praise from your allies on the hill?”
Priebus, who went on to blast the media about its reporting, claimed that all of the negative reports about the status of the White House are false.
“Look, I think what we hear on the hill is the same thing I’m telling you, [is] that the media is obsessed with a lot of false, hollow stories without sourcing we have to track down and deal with.”
“The amount of drama and spin that you read about, mostly in the Washington daily gossip rags, is unbelievable stuff and it just isn’t true,” Priebus added. “And you read it every day and you wonder what alternative universe they’re reporting on because it just isn’t true.”
Every West Wing has different “personalities,” he continued.
“You always have different kinds of people, but it doesn’t mean that you don’t ultimately get along, serve the president, want to make the American people proud. That’s what we’re doing every day. That’s what we’re trying to do every day.”
