It’s tough to lose a job around Christmas but outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly seems OK with it.
CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta is reporting that Kelly has told friends he’s relieved to be leaving the White House after taking on the position last July.
The news that Kelly might be OK with no longer serving at the beck and call of Donald Trump may not be much of a surprise.
In one meeting Kelly allegedly called Trump “an idiot” and said it was “pointless to try to convince him of anything.”
Woodward quoted Kelly as saying, “He’s gone off the rails. We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.”
In June, Kelly reportedly called the White House a “miserable place to work, according to the New York Times.
Trump is currently looking for his third chief of staff in less than two years. Sources told HuffPost he’s currently considering son-in-law Jared Kushner.
