    President Trump reportedly considered firing Chief of Staff John Kelly earlier this month and fulfilling the duties himself rather than naming a replacement.

    NBC News reported Thursday that Trump suggested to others outside the White House that he would leave the chief of staff position open. He would then receive direct reports from a handful of top aides, in a set-up that would resemble how he operated the Trump Organization.

    Well, there's another scary thought. Personally, I think Kelly's an asshole - but at least he seems to be a reasonably sane asshole.

    You're the one working his way down to the dregs. Your threads are getting worse by the day, which doesn't even seem possible.

    Trump has been his own Chief of staff for long long time! That's how he runs things. There's a boss and there's a first niqqer. Trump in the board room is Jimmy Hoffa on a picket line. Do it now and do it right or you are fired!

    Dunning-kruger effect.

    Anyway, I think if Trump doesn't have a Chief of Staff then he's just going to schedule himself more 'executive' time and play golf.
