Tensions between Kelly and President Donald Trump were rumored for months prior to reports that the retired Marine general will be leaving the White House.
Veteran journalist Bob Woodward wrote in “Fear,” his nonfiction book into the Trump White House, that Kelly thinks Trump is both “crazy” and an “idiot.”
Amid ample speculation about who will replace Kelly, HuffPost reported that Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is in the running for the next White House chief of staff.
Ex-Reagan adviser nails why white evangelicals flock to Trump in devastating takedown of fake Christians
Why do evangelicals — or at least, white ones — love President Donald Trump so much? Why do they stick by a president who has barely even read the Bible, has defiled marriage, and embodies the antithesis of so much of what their churches preach?

CNN host forced to explain to Republican Rick Santorum why Trump’s attack on Democratic lawmakers was racist
During an appearance on CNN's "New Day" -- along with fellow Republican Charlie Dent (PA) -- ex-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) received a lecture from host John Berman on why Donald Trump's tweets and attacks on four Democratic lawmakers were racist.
While Dent revealed that down-ticket Republicans running for re-election in 2020 are "terrified" that Trump's descent into overt racism as a campaign strategy may kill their chances of holding their seats, Santorum said he was disgusted with the whole spectacle while saying he didn't see the attacks as racist.
Asked about the president's attacks, Santorum tried to brush them away and blame the recipients of Trump's ire.
