WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says Gen. John F. Kelly is his new White House chief of staff.

That means Reince Priebus is out.

Trump tweeted: “I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American.”

Kelly is currently the secretary of Homeland Security.

Trump tweeted that Kelly “has been a true star of my administration.”

Priebus traveled with Trump earlier in the day to an appearance in Brentwood, New York. Trump thanked him for his service and “dedication to his country.”

    Everyone Trump picks is completely inexperienced and incompetent including John Kelly. Kelly is a General and knows nothing about legislation or running a government. Duh!

    I am a manager and would get fired if I hired someone without relevant experience.

    These people who take jobs in Trump’s disastrous incompetent administration are completely ignorant and stupid to do so. They accept these appointments because of the egoic inflation and false sense of acceptance and grandiosity they temporararily experience from being appointed by the president.

    But they are unconscious of the underlying psychodynamics of Trump’s Malignant Narcissism and their own narcissism and codependency. Trump’s appointees are codependent enablers and are also narcissists. Every American should take the time and effort to learn what the epidemic psycho spiritual diseases narcissism and codependency are. These diseases are epidemic in our time and are the root cause of all Americas problems.

    Trump, his staff, and his followers are all very very sick people and are spiritually bankrupt.
