The New York Times is reporting on John Kelly's efforts to impose some order on the West Wing and to put some controls on the information Trump receives:
Quote:
White House aides were told that all materials prepared for the president must go first to Mr. Porter for vetting and clearance. Then Mr. Kelly must sign off on them before they go to Mr. Trumpís desk. That includes news articles, according to West Wing officials who described the memosí content ó of particular importance, given the propensity for some of Mr. Trumpís staff to slip him news accounts from dubious sources that shape his thinking or prompt him to cite unreliable or inaccurate information...Mr. Priebus had tried [and failed] to take firmer control of that process after Mr. Trumpís first week in office, when Stephen K. Bannon, the recently departed chief strategist, and Stephen Miller, the presidentís senior policy adviser, pushed across the presidentís desk two orders redesigning the National Security Council, and putting in place the first, court-contested travel ban on seven predominantly Muslim countries.

Worst. President. Ever.
