President Donald Trump on Friday removed his chief of staff, Reince Priebus, and tapped Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly for the job.

The stunning shakeup comes the day after newly named White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci attacked Preibus in profane terms in an interview published Thursday and also follows the failure of Republicans in Congress to repeal Obamacare.

Preibus' fate was largely tied to the fate of the GOP effort on health care, a source close to the White House told NBC News.

"He failed," the source said.

The Republican failure to undo the Affordable Care Act — one of Trump's central campaign promises — was the “final straw” for Priebus, another source close to the administration told NBC.

Right, I mean what has Reince Priebus ever done except to get Trump into the WH.

I wonder whether Gen. Kelly knows what he’s in for.

As for Priebus, whom Anthony Scaramucci called a f—ing paranoid schizophrenic,” I’m reminded of the cliche “just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that everyone isn’t out to get you.” It may not be long before everyone is out to get Gen. Kelly, Great American though he is.

Sigh.  What a mess. and as a aside -

General Kelly was doing a terrific job at DHS and since it was a cabinet position his replacement will have to be confirmed.
