Kelly says report he called Trump an idiot is 'total BS'

Kelly says report he called Trump an idiot is 'total BS'

It's no news that current White House Chief of Staff and former Head of Homeland Security John Kelly and President Trump often have heated conversations about policy and other matters.

The publication presents the testimony of four officials who, according to them, heard Kelly called trump an "idiot" numerous times.

Kelly reacted swiftly, calling the report "total BS ".

He responded by saying: "I spend more time with the President than anyone else and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship".

'He always knows where I stand and he and I both know this story is total BS. "I told the president that if he had a healthier diet over the past 20 years he might live to be 200 year old", Jackson said. "This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration's many successes", the statement added.

"You may recall this "Relatively competent/functional person says privately that Trump is dumb" trop from such previous stories as The Secretary of State Won't Specifically Deny That He Referred to the President as a "F-ing Moron" and "The National Security Adviser Reportedly Called the President an 'idiot" and a 'kindergartner'". "I have no reason to question his mental fitness".

Jonny Isakson (R-GA) signed off on the release of the allegations against Jackson, which Trump did not mention. President Donald Trump had nominated Jackson in March for advancement to a two-star admiral.

Monkey Business: Court Rules Monkey Does Not Have Copyrights Over Selfies
Both judges were critical of PETA and its decision to settle the case after oral arguments suggested it would lose the appeal. The Ninth Circuit refused to let the parties dismiss the case, and on Monday was critical of the settlement.

Kelly's influence and position in the Whit House has also waned in recent months and reports have suggested Trump is not happy with his second chief of staff (the first was Reince Priebus) and has been annoyed by a perception that Kelly keeps his worst instincts and urges under check. Another White House official said the tensions don't seem any more urgent or dramatic now, but acknowledged that this could accelerate Kelly's departure. "Tillerson declined to do so, simply saying he wouldn't play that Washington game".

The US President took to Twitter to deny such reports and branded them as "false stories" which is based on "only unnamed sources (who don't exist)".

The drumbeat increased dramatically in February, when Kelly's handling of the firing of former White House Secretary Rob Porter came under scrutiny.

Multiple sources have told CNN that Trump is increasingly frustrated with Kelly, and a senior administration official said Monday that the feeling goes both ways.

Trump has reportedly chafed at Kelly's controlling management style, and has occasionally talked with friends about replacing him.

Another senior administration official said while Trump and his chief of staff have had disagreements, Kelly has never used that kind of language to criticize Trump.
