After Thursday’s bizarre, widely publicized breakdown by Anthony Scaramucci, Trump had no choice: he had to pick either the former SkyBridge founder or his Chief of Staff, Reince “paranoid schizophrenic” Priebus.

Moments ago Trump made his decision – Priebus has been fired, replaced by retired four-star Marine general John Kelly, and current Homeland Security head, John Kelly who Trump frequently credits for dramatically reducing the number of undocumented immigrants coming into the U.S. from Mexico. He called Kelly “a true star” in a tweet announcing the appointment.

Trump tweeted: “I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration.”

Trump announced the decision on Twitter as his plane landed at Andrews. Trump also tweeted his token thanks to Priebus “for his service and dedication to his country” saying “we accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!.”

Priebus had initially gotten into a van with White House policy adviser Stephen Miller and White House social media director Dan Scavino on the tarmac, but shortly after the two men left the van and left Priebus alone, according to the White House pool. The former chief of staff’s car then pulled out of the president’s motorcade and left while Trump remained on Air Force One.

According to press reports the final straw for Reince Priebus was the overnight failure by Senate republicans to pass Obamacare repeal as a result of John McCain’s stunning decision to vote against the GOP.

Then again, according to NBC, it wasn’t Trump who fired Priebus, but Priebus who resigned on Thursday.

Speaking to reporters, Trump called Priebus a “good man” but called Kelly a “star.”
