‘Exactly what the president needs’: Republican strategist pushes Kellyanne Conway for chief of staff

Published

on

President Donald Trump, who once worked as a reality TV star character hyped for his ability to hire and fire, is having a difficult time finding a third White House chief of staff.

“Let’s talk about Trump’s chief of staff woes,” MSNBC anchor Katy Tur suggested. “He announces John Kelly is leaving, everyone looks to Nick Ayers and oh, no Nick Ayers doesn’t want to stay.”

“That would be embarrassing for any presidency,” Tur added.

She noted a number of contenders, including Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Yankees baseball team president Randy Levine, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, former Trump campaign strategist David Bossie and Mick Mulvaney, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Newsmax, the online publication owned by Mar-a-lago member and Trump friend Christopher Ruddy has suggested Jared Kushner as White House chief of staff.

However, one of Tur’s guests had another name to add to the list. Republican strategist Susan Del Perico suggested counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway.

“Someone else who hasn’t been mentioned — and only in the Trump universe would this potentially work — is Kellyanne Conway,” Pel Perico argued.

“Kellyanne was campaign manager, she knows how to handle Trump,” she continued. “She’s been in the White House for two years, so she’s seen the operations.”

“I know people are going to go berzerk on Twitter, but she’s a very smart woman,” Del Perico added.

If the score was kept for the first day of the impeachment trial, it would show hefty losses for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

As Former Special Counsel for the Department of Defense, Ryan Goodman, pointed out, four major headlines perfectly reflect the cracks in the strangle-hold McConnell has had on his party.

First, McConnell was forced to change the impeachment hearing rules. After a huge uprising by Americans demanding to be able to watch the impeachment trial during normal human hours, senators told McConnell he'd lost the votes to hold proceedings after midnight.

‘Disease fanboy’: Internet slams NBC conservative for ‘rooting for pandemic’ to distract from Trump impeachment trial

Hugh Hewitt is once again under fire, this time for almost appearing to be glad a deadly SARS-related virus has been diagnosed in a patient in Washington state – saying additional diagnoses will take the focus away from the Senate's historic impeachment trial. Hewitt is a conservative Washington Post columnist, radio host, MSNBC and NBC contributor, and law professor who went from being a "Never-Trumper" to all-in for President Donald Trump.

"People care much more for their health than theater," said Hewitt via Twitter, referring to Trump's impeachment trial. The SARS-related virus, known as the Wuhan coronavirus, is named for an area of China where it was first found. It "has infected more than 300 people and killed six in an outbreak that has struck China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and now the US," CNN reports.

In 1975, New York City was run-down and on the verge of bankruptcy. Twenty-nine-year-old Donald Trump saw an opportunity. He wanted to acquire and redevelop the dilapidated Commodore Hotel in midtown Manhattan next to Grand Central Terminal.

Trump had bragged to the executive controlling the sale that he could use his political connections to get tax breaks for the deal.

The executive was skeptical. But the next day, the executive was invited into Trump’s limousine, which ushered him to City Hall. There, he met with Donald’s father Fred and Mayor Abe Beame, to whom the Trumps had given lavishly.
