Kelly says report he called Trump an idiot is 'total BS'

Kelly says report he called Trump an idiot is 'total BS'

Kelly has maintained at least two close allies in the West Wing - Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, and White House counsel Don McGahn, current and former officials said. NBC sources say that Kelly was systematically created an image of "Savior of the Fatherland", who is forced to restrain the impulses of the impulsive President.

"I spend more time with the President than anyone else and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship".

Moreover, the staff of NBC to continue to claim that he relied in his publication on numerous and reliable sources.

During Tuesday's White House briefing, Sanders was asked why former White House staffer Keith Schiller forcibly took President Trump's records from his former physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein.

Fuentes told The Hill that he has "never heard the chief of staff call the president an idiot".

Spokespersons: They don't believe the reports are accurate, and none of them have ever heard Kelly using that word about Trump or in any other situation. "Once a Marine, always a Marine", said Fuentes.

For those that didn't know about Jackson heading into the draft, they now have heard from the man himself what they should expect. Green Bay no doubt needed to pick up a wide receiver in the draft this year after parting ways with Jordy Nelson this offseason.

The report also says that Kelly, who NBC News says could leave by July, used sexist language, telling colleagues that women are more emotional than men. Trump later challenged Tillerson to an IQ test and fired him several months after the remark became public.

"Kelly appears to be less engaged, which may be to the president's detriment", a second senior White House official said.

Kelly's handling of domestic violence accusations against then-White House staff secretary Rob Porter earlier this year caused consternation among White House staffers, who believed Kelly wasn't truthful.

Kelly's comment came as the officials deliberated on the future of the United States effort in Syria, following Trump's off-the-cuff comments saying he was determined to get USA troops out of the country.

CNN said a White House official "pointed out a big difference between the Kelly incident and former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson when he was accused of calling the president a moron is that "Kelly immediately denied the report and denounced it to the president's face".

Be it Kelly or whoever Trump taps to run the VA, they'd be replacing David Shulkin, forced out by the administration in late March.
