Former Department of Homeland Security secretary, John Kelly, was sworn in Monday as White House chief of staff, replacing Reince Priebus who was ousted after only six months in the position. Kelly, a retired four-star Marine Corps general, wasted no time in asserting his new authority by firing Anthony Scaramucci -- the newly appointed White House communications director -- as one of his first official acts in his new role.
Given Kelly’s renowned military background and fastidious nature, Republicans have high hopes that his steadying influence will be just what the White House needs to tame the ever-increasing tumult of the Trump administration.
Ben Shapiro, Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Wire, is not so optimistic. Shapiro joined Dana Loesch today on “Dana” to elaborate on the many reasons why he says, “Trump is still Trump. And Kelly isn’t going to be the fix for a president who has never been hemmed in by any strictures at any time in his adult life.”
