Chief of Staff John Kelly has survived. He joined the Trump administration last summer and cleaned house, purging the White House of staffers that served no purpose aside from fueling infighting (farewell Omarosa, Seb Gorka).
Despite initial reports that Kelly would implement a military-style discipline on the White House, before it became apparent he was being neutered by Trump — with a number of reports predicting he would not last long in the job.
Now, Kelly is speaking out about how much his job in the West Wing sucks. According to the New York Times, Kelly told a group of visiting senators last week that the White House is a “miserable place to work.”
Times reporter Maggie Haberman added in a tweet that Kelly also said when asked by the senators how he was doing, he replied “horrible.”
