John Kelly Resignation Imminent (Again)

John Kelly Resignation Imminent (Again)

And now, it’s time for your bi-weekly John Kelly resignation rumor.

It’s been clear for at least a year now that Kelly doesn’t want anything to do with the Trump administration and who can blame him?

After all, Trump used Kelly’s dead son as (figurative) cannon fodder in an absurd war of word’s with a grieving widow 14 months ago and then forced Kelly to hold a literal press conference to defend his inexcusable behavior.

Of course that’s hardly the only point of contention between Kelly and Trump.

Kelly has clashed with the administration (of which he is begrudgingly a part) on so many occasions that it’s impossible to catalogue them all. Recent examples include the controversy over Melania Trump’s efforts to oust John Bolton deputy Mira Ricardel and the ongoing Kirstjen Nielsen soap opera.

In any event, on Friday morning, CNN’s Rebecca Buck says Kelly’s resignation will come within days.

“John Kelly is expected to resign in the coming days,” she tweeted, citing two sources familiar with the situation which is apparently “unfolding in the West Wing.”

Mike Pence’s chief of staff Nick Ayers is (still) seen as a leading contender to replace Kelly, Buck goes on to note.

Needless to say, Kelly’s resignation, should it finally come to fruition, would deal a grievous blow the administration’s efforts to convince the public that the White House is running “like a well-oiled machine”, as Trump famously claimed.

It would also mean one less “adult” in the room.
