Well, what about Frank Giaccio? He's the 11 year old boy that had his wish fulfilled to mow the white house lawn. Its winter, so they don't need much yard work; maybe he can take over the job of Chief of Staff.

I'm still holding out for Jose Canseco though. He wants the job too.

And we have a winner (although only an acting winner):

"Mick Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management & Budget, will be named Acting White House Chief of Staff,"

I think Mulviney takes over..temporarily...when Kelly leaves in two weeks.
I guess this means the search goes on for someon willing to take the job on a permanent basic.
But with Donnie, who knows>

Which, of course, creates another vacancy. When all you can do is shuffle people around, you aren't getting the problem solved.

Nobody in Trump's sphere of influence gives a hoot about managing or budgeting, so he won't be missed from that spot.

The Great Zaganza 15th December 2018 12:54 AM

Given that Kelly wouldn't give Kushner the time of day, this might be a way to transition from one to the other via an interim CoS.

Stacko 15th December 2018 07:17 AM

Scoop: Ryan Zinke has notified the White House he intends to step down as interior secretary.

Concern about legal costs and scrutiny of his travel, political activity and potential conflicts of interest were factors in Zinke’s decision, I’m told.

Plan is to announce Wednesday.

Perhaps one of the table lamps in the Oval could be promoted??

Trump managed to keep it to himself for all of a few minutes, tweeting that Zinke will "be leaving the administration at the end of the year after having served for a period of almost two years".

Donnie says of his new Chief of Staff:

Leg Lamp is a hell of a lamp! She'll do a TERRIFIC job. I've known her a long time. She's very bright and upstanding! Nothing shady about her for the Dems and FAKE NEWS to attack! They won't have a leg to stand on!

varwoche 16th December 2018 08:06 AM

Trump's palpable desperation to name a new Chief of Staff is underscored, in surreal manner, by Mulvaney's insisting on "interim" title, and by Mulvaney on record calling Trump a "terrible human being".

While I can't prove it, I brim with confidence when I speculate that no POTUS has ever appointed a COS who is on record calling that POTUS a terrible human being.

Another First for Trump!

He just keeps racking 'em up. It's astounding.

This Mulvaney business demonstrates in the starkest terms Trump's desperation to appoint as COS *any sentient creature* not requiring to be Shanghai'd in order to paper over the debacle surrounding Pence's boy.

Some pundit supporter on CNN this morning said that The PDJT had a thick skin. The rest of the panel nearly laughed him off the set.

dudalb 16th December 2018 12:52 PM

Don't know how much he will save on legal costs. Out of office, he could still be indicted for a lot of what he has been accused of doing.
He is going t0 be lawyering up, that is for damn sure.

Well, they probably put the Secretary of Everything on it and he was so busy routing his Saudi friends into his wife's hotel (300+ nights at top dollar) that he really didn't notice that Halliburton truck outside of Ryan's mother-in-law's place digging a new swimming pool or the Rockwell International crew constructing the new heliport.

Shurley shome mishtake.

Why would Trump want sentience? Senescence is so much more fitting.

Bolton is a very useful adviser: do the opposite of what he advocates, and you are probably doing the right thing.

The same is true of Trump.

This game is called "White House Survivor". We are now down to the last 3 contestants - Miller, Bolton and the viewer's favourite, Trump.

Who will take out the coveted title and win ONE MILLION DOLLARS!!*

I heard that the big hold up is due to Trump not being able to decide which of his grandchildren will hold which position. There are just so many empty.
I heard Tiffany declined the Chief of Staff position.:rolleyes:

Got a cite for that? I can't find one, though I haven't spent a lot of time on it.

ETA: There seem to have been a lot of rumors of it six months ago, but I don't see anything recent.
