John Kelly Has Repeatedly Referred To Trump As An 'Idiot,' NBC Reports

Trump reportedly vets nominees based on personal loyalty — and it's become a nightmare for the White House

Kelly has also reportedly said several times-at least once in front of Trump-that women are more emotional than men-a claim the White House did little to nullify when one of its spokespeople agreed that "generally speaking, women are more emotional than men".

NBC reported on Monday that Kelly has criticized Trump's knowledge on issues like immigration, and cast himself as a protecting the country from Trump's impulses.

Kelly has denied the whole NBC report, calling it "BS" in a statement.

Less than an hour after the NBC report was published, Kelly issued a statement calling the story "total BS".

Eight unnamed sources told NBC News that Kelly sees himself as the country's savior and that he constantly insults the president's intelligence. "This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump", Kelly wrote, "and distract from the administration's many successes". "I have no reason to question his mental fitness".

The Associated Press reported Trump has chafed at Kelly's controlling management style, and has talked with friends occasionally about replacing him.

"He doesnt even understand what DACA is".


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

"He says stuff you can't believe", said one senior White House official.

The official said Kelly and Trump were meeting in the Oval Office when the story broke on TV.

Senior White House spokespeople denied all these claims, saying they had never heard General Kelly refer to Mr Trump or himself in these terms. Acosta also noted that Kelly has publicly joked that God was punishing him for something by forcing him to work at the White House.

White Home chief of workers points assertion refuting NBC Information story that claims Kelly known as the president an 'fool'. They also accused Kelly of belittling women and of making troubling comments about the domestic violence accusations leveled against former staff secretary Rob Porter by that aide's two ex-wives. "He's an idiot", Kelly said in a meeting about the program that protects hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants brought into the country as children, according to two officials in attendance. Kelly later said he mishandled his response to the allegations.

Following his appointment as chief of staff, Mr Trump said: "John Kelly will do a fantastic job".
