With thirteen tweets from Trump in the last twelve hours, most of which are either self-aggrandizing or attacks on his "enemies", it doesn't seem that Kelly is up to the task.
 
2017-08-07 06:11:07 PM  
All those tweets and yet not one about the missing Marines in Australia.

Miss5280: All those tweets and yet not one about the missing Marines in Australia.


Trumpy prefers Marines who don't go missing in the Alps.
 
2017-08-07 07:14:17 PM  
If Kelly is smart, he'll resign by the end of the week citing the fact that he was hired to be Chief of Staff, not the twitsitter for a petulant man-child.
 
2017-08-07 09:40:59 PM  
So far I'd say things aren't going so well.

How's that working out for you, Mr Kelly?
 
2017-08-07 09:47:00 PM  
He succeeded for one glorious week.
Then Trump figured out how to get the Chinese finger cuffs off and was back at it.

Why are there so many Alps? There are Alps in Australia, there are Alps in Worst Korea, there are Alps in Transylvania, there are Alps on the Moon, for crying out loud! It certainly explains why people go missing - you say they're lost in the Alps and it could be anywhere...

Article mentions that.  Kelly isn't on vacation with Trump.

Trump likely went on vacation so he could twit without old man Kelly yelling at him.

Ah, so Kelly's cunning plan depended on being in the room with Trump 24/7. Smart.

Trump is an artist. He's a virtuoso. Would you break Picasso's hands? Would you knee Bette Midler in the balls?
 
2017-08-07 09:54:27 PM  
Trumpy is just trying to get in a few last zingers before his phone is chucked out of a speeding presidential limo.
 
2017-08-07 09:55:05 PM  
Good F'n luck, Kelly. I hope that you keep your cool all the way up until you resign.
And by all means when you do, feel free to let us know what a petulant man-baby your boss was. Country first!

John Kelly is attempting to herd the most unruly, malignantly narcissistic cat in the history of cat herding.

Good luck with that.

If his intention is to rein in Trump's tweets, then letting Trump out from under his thumb just a few days in is a poor strategy. It's akin to getting a new puppy, saying you want to housebreak it, then going on vacation for a week while leaving the puppy at home with a bag of food and a tub of water. Poor planning on Kelly's part doesn't mean a lack of pointing and laughing on my part.

In his mind, watching CNN probably counts as work.  I'm not kidding; I bet he thinks he's working super hard and doesn't understand why people are calling him lazy.

And/or controlling on who enters the room where Trump is.  A bit easier to do in the Oval Office.

I most certainly would. If they were all this brain-f*cked.

The only way to really control his nonsense would be to put a parental lock on all of the 24-hour news channels in the White House and confiscate his phone (or better yet, give him one with a bogus Twitter app that doesn't actually post anything to the internet).
 
2017-08-07 10:08:06 PM  
I live 15 minutes from his course and I feel like I do more work than him getting out of bed in the morning.

/honestly didn't know he had a course there until he got elected.
 
2017-08-07 10:09:13 PM  
Moving with the speed of a Special Olympics hurdler. Don't strain anything trying to get there, Kelly.
 
2017-08-07 10:11:50 PM  
In fact, Bedminster is stuck-up NY commuter middle of nowhere.  No wonder he dropped a course there.
 
2017-08-07 10:14:58 PM  
So, leakers that revel classified information to foreign governments have committed a crime?  I think Trump is the only one so far.
 
2017-08-07 10:16:50 PM  
Trump probably let Jared and Ivanka talk him into briging Kelly in to bring order. But he got bored with order because when there is order, people find other things to talk about besides him, and he hates that.

It's God first for the Marines. They don't mention which god, I'm guessing  Ares, Mars, Tyr or maybe even Shiva.

That's a really, really good question.

If a forty-year Marine, 4 star General just throws his hands up and just gives up, where do you go from there?

This is terrifying.

Ares and Mars are the same guy. Otherwise you're doing fine.

Heh.  That would be awesome if someone blocked all news channels from Trump's TV.  Tell him it's a cable issue and Comcast says they're working on it.

Interesting thought. Some fairly low-level maintenance guy at Trump's golf resort could easily shut down the cable feed into the entire place if he or she wanted to.

Some wrench turner making $20/hour could easily change history.

The White House is getting a new HVAC system and some remodeling. August in D.C. can be brutal without air conditioning.

It takes cojones to dodge the entire war and accuse a fella who served stateside for several years as being a weepy liar. Perhaps Trump needs a vacation there, too, if his bone spurs allow.

The gall of this man.

Did he move like a biatch to tame the tweets? Apparently, that's something that you can do, too.

I didn't write "keep him from going", I wrote "under his thumb". If he actually does plan on reining in Trump's tweet addiction, then he's off to a bad start.
