Panetta advises Kelly: Buy a 'big bottle of scotch'

05 Agosto 2017

"There has to be one person in the White House willing to look the president in the eye and tell him the truth - to tell him when he is wrong and when he is about to make a mistake - and that has to be the chief of staff. I've seen speculation, but at this point it's only speculation", Lapan told CBN News National Security Correspondent Erik Rosales in a phone interview. His impetuous temperament, his penchant for shooting from the hip and disregard for unpleasant facts makes him his own worst enemy, though there are plenty of competitors for that distinction.

All that comes off as pretty shrewd, even if Scaramucci is just leaping over the White House's current managerial bar, which has been debased to "Chicken Limbo" levels.

On tax reform, for instance, his instinct will be to figure the lay of the land and try to get to the number it takes to pass a bill with both parties. "The Trump White House seems more akin to the final scene in Reservoir Dogs, where everyone is yelling and pointing a gun at someone else, and there's a good chance no one is going to come out unscathed".

After his appointment as White House chief of staff, one particular passage from a book on his rise through the Marines Corps was circulated among administration officials.

Things are falling apart in the White House much faster than even the keenest observers of Donald Trump's behaviour would have predicted, and the important part is not the dysfunction. With Trump relinquishing some power over to Kelly, this could be sign that Trump has decided to act more presidential. He can force the media to alter the news of the day via 140 characters on Twitter.

For example, farmers in central coastal California last year lost $13 million in gross revenues in strawberries, leafy greens and other crops due to worker shortages, according to the Grower-Shipper Association of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties. Maybe there is something about John Kelly's gravitas that will compel Trump to behave like a president should.

Newly minted chief of staff John Kelly, a retired four-star general who was previously secretary of Homeland Security, is expected to bring discipline and focus to the West Wing. Those changes have been welcomed by the vast majority of voters who sought exactly this type of change. What matters is that he is cutting his links with the Republican Party. In 2015, however, Trump himself told a biographer that he feels that his emotional temperament has been unchanged since he was 6 years old. With respect to the last, he might start by asking why the White House has not even nominated an ambassador to South Korea or filled any of the senior regional posts for Asia at State or Defense. A successful impeachment could accomplish that. He may be up to the task of professionalizing the administration.

It would be a big gamble. He is what President Trump needs.

On Saturday, Trump threatened to end required payments to insurance companies unless lawmakers repeal and replace the Obama-era health care law. Sent to the private school by his hard-driving father in order to get his rambunctiousness under control, the young "D.T." thrived in the rigorous atmosphere (while pushing social rules to their limits).

California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein said on CBS' 'Face the Nation' that she hopes Kelly can 'be effective, ' and 'begin some very serious negotiation with the North and stop this program'.

Has America ever needed a media watchdog more than now? So, by Trump's standards, they are on a roll.

If he thought his presidency was at stake, he certainly would.
