Priebus Allies: White House Chaos 'Unsustainable,' Trump 'Demeaned' Him

Within days of his appointment, Scaramucci, who was added to the roster of top aides who circumvent the chief of staff and report directly to the President, took to the airwaves and suggested Priebus was responsible for leaks coming out of the White House. "He is a Great American... and a Great Leader".

"I can't think of anyone better than a four-star general, John Kelly", Priebus said of his replacement.

Another conservative who provides advice to the White House was downright fatalistic about the continuing tribulations of a Trump administration beset by scandals, FBI investigations, an uncontrollable president and back-stabbing among staffers.

It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve this President and our country. Mr Priebus travelled with Mr Trump on Friday to an appearance in Brentwood, New York, where the president thanked him for his service and "dedication to his country". Buckley said his hope is that under General John Kelly's guidance, the White House can do just that.

On Friday afternoon, Scaramucci could be seen boarding Air Force One with his "brother" in arms, Priebus, en route to a speech with the president in NY.

MCEVERS: And Priebus wasn't the only one taking hits from the new White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci.

Priebus was one of the members of President Donald Trump's senior staff who had the most experience working in Washington politics, having previously served as the Republican National Committee chairman before joining the Trump team during the transition. I honestly don't believe there is a lot of people out there that actually believe that campaign people were sitting on telephones and having meetings and passing secret messages trying to figure out how to mess around with the election. "A President has a right to hit a reset button".

Uttar Pradesh: Two Samajwadi Party MLCs resign, may join BJP next
Akhilesh Yadav said that BJP is indulging in "political corruption" from Bihar to Uttar Pradesh. The SP and BSP MLCs vacating their seats for the BJP ministers gave a new twist to the rumours.

He also called Priebus a "paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac". He attributes this lack of loyalists to former Chief-of-Staff Reince Preibus.

President Trump hopes a blunt, tough-talking general will bring order to a White House that has been bleeding employees, leaking information and seething with infighting nearly since the day he moved in.

Kirstjen Nielsen has been serving as Kelly's chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security.

Reince Preibus told CNN Trump had wanted to go in a "different direction" after a turbulent six-month tenure.

Kelly is now the secretary of Homeland Security. "General Kelly has been a star, done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody".

"We don't want you involved in our election policies, " Kelly said, recounting a now-common refrain from state officials. "I fired one guy the other day".

Trump gushed over Kelly's record at an event in NY on Friday afternoon.
