Sam Nunberg, a former adviser to President Donald Trump, argued on Sunday that former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks would be the “perfect” person to replace Gen. John Kelly as chief of staff.
During a Sunday interview on MSNBC, host Alex Witt noted that Nunberg has pushed for Hicks to take the White House chief of staff position, which Kelly is expected to vacate later this year.
“Why do you think she would be good as chief of staff?” Witt wondered.
“She is actually perfect for what the president is looking for,” Nunberg replied. “He is thinking of not having a chief of staff. What he wants is to operate like the 26th floor of Trump Tower where he had a strong-willed, very good woman in Rhona Graff handling the calls, knowing him getting his zen, things like that.”
“He will listen to women more than men, believe it or not, strongly saying, that wouldn’t be a good idea,” he continued. “She would be perfect for this. He had to adapt to the presidency… political gravity will never apply to him.”
Nunberg argued that Trump could pick a non-traditional chief of staff because he is a non-traditional president.
“We’re dealing with a new president here,” he explained. “I would tell you Hope has very good political instincts. They came to her very quickly during the short time I worked with her, and she was essentially his gatekeeper during the election. And she would be great at that position, and she doesn’t take — she knows the way he’s going to work.”
“She’s not going to be insulted like John Kelly that the president is going to do what the president is going to do,” Nunberg concluded.

Fox News contributor: Criminal justice reform not needed because ‘it’s the least racist system in the country’
Former Assistant U.S. Attorney and Fox News contributor Andy McCarthy insisted on Monday that the U.S. criminal justice system is the "least racist system we have in the country."
McCarthy made the remarks during a Fox News segment about justice reform proposals from Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders to curb incarceration rates and root out institutional racism.
"It's a funny thing, I worked in the justice system for a long time," McCarthy said. "I think it's the least racist system that we have in the country, if that's possible."
Trump goes berserk on Twitter as he lashes out at his own Fed chair and then attacks ‘selfish’ Democrats
President Donald Trump just declared war on the man he personally picked to head the Federal Reserve. The President is furious that one in three economists are predicting recession by the end of the year, and many believe the U.S. will plunge into a recession within the next 6 to 12 months.
At the top of the list of causes for the Trump recession is the president’s trade war with China, which he said a year ago was easy to win.
When a country (USA) is losing many billions of dollars on trade with virtually every country it does business with, trade wars are good, and easy to win. Example, when we are down $100 billion with a certain country and they get cute, don’t trade anymore-we win big. It’s easy!
Humanitarian volunteer says he won’t be deterred after facing charges in Arizona for helping migrants
We broadcast live from Tucson, Arizona, where the government recently put humanitarian activist Scott Warren on trial amid the ongoing policing of the U.S.-Mexico border, separation of families, and cruel and inhumane conditions at immigrant jails across the country. Warren, a longtime volunteer with the humanitarian aid group No More Deaths, was charged with three felony counts for his alleged crime of providing food, water and shelter to migrants in Ajo, Arizona. The immigrants had arrived at the doorstep of a humanitarian shelter after a perilous journey across the Sonoran Desert. At the same time, he and other volunteers also faced separate misdemeanor charges for leaving water jugs and food for migrants on a national wildlife refuge in the remote desert. The trial took eight days, and after hours of deliberation, the jury returned without a verdict. Eight found Scott Warren not guilty; the remaining four said he was. The government will now retry Warren in November. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison. As he awaits his next trial, Scott Warren met us in the remote town of Ajo, Arizona, this weekend for his first trip in a year to leave water and food for migrants in the desert.
