WASHINGTON -- Senior White House aides insisted Sunday that President Donald Trump retains confidence in Chief of Staff John Kelly in the midst of staff turmoil and said the president is not looking to replace the retired four-star general hired six months ago with a mandate to corral chaos.

We'll see. While Kelly has introduced more discipline into the WH, he also seems to have introduced some complacency over issues. His handling of the Porter incident was pretty shabby and now brings into question if he did the same in the military. As is most of the situations in the Trump WH, we'll just have to wait and see. There have been several possible candidates named including Mulvaney.

This administration is a sick parade of social disease. Vote. 2018 & 2020. The GOP will not survive, cannot overcome, has no more credibility in the political arena, and will be suppressed by the upcoming voting young people who are ready to move the nation away from isolation to participation in the global community to stop the wanton disregard for the resources that sustain life. Change is coming.

I guess if you just deny that you did anything wrong, call all the women liars, etc., then you must be innocent end of story. You know, unless you are a democrat. Then, you step up, take responsibility, apologize, and resign all while being attacked by President Grab 'em by the...

Like Bill and Hillary did?
Strange- I recall a time when you "progs" believed in the concept of innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Now it seems you believe that guilt or innocence should be determined on social media.
Kelly stays-"progs" heads explode- hilarity ensues.

I don't do social media. I do have eyes and can see the pictures of a woman 's bruised face. That is prima fascia evidence that someone hit the woman, and she says it was her now ex-husband. He should have had his day in court, and served his time behind bars.
.
And in case you missed my point, I was speaking to the remarkable moral difference in that every GOP'er who has been accused since this movement started over the past year(not 25 years ago) denies, denies, denies, yet the Dems who have been accused admitted their failings and resigned. So much for the party of morals and family values.

mozarky2, surely you understand different contexts require different levels of proof to reach the threshold requiring decisive action. Evidence beyond a reasonable doubt is required for criminal conviction, but I will not wait for criminal conviction before I remove my child from a church group after I hear strong rumors of pedophilia by its leader. If you don't understand this distinction about different levels of proof - both within the court system and in the rest of life - educate yourself. If you do understand, quit feigning ignorance in order to argue for inactiomozarky2, surely you understand different contexts require different levels of proof to reach the threshold requiring decisive action.

I have no idea why my comment posted as it did. It looked fine in the preview. I believe you get my point.

I'll give it another chance:

Hey WGT - Damn, boy, you really need a Snickers.
.
Hey hah - Bullsh*t. Those photos only indicate the woman suffered some kind of facial trauma. Injuries like that could happen in literally thousands of different ways. That's not to say she wasn't punched in the face but to say you're claim is pure bullsh*t.
.
But we get it hah, we really do. You butthurt libs keep grasping at straws and irrational wishful thinking that some how, some way, President Trump will leave office before the end of his term and preferably tomorrow. We understand what you're up to and so does President Trump. No matter how loud you scream that politicians accused of sexual misdeeds need to resign President Trump will only scoff at your play and continue being the Commander-In-Chief.

Yes Boltar. Moz is playing the party line of the president who is trying to use that to deflect from not only his own issues, but that of his staff where TWO abusers were let go in one week. Rational thought is thrown to the wind when dealing with the Great Cheeto Head.
