Hello, Washington Post?

Here’s some striking dysfunction – Kelly holds a meeting with senior staff at which he tells them to lie about when he (Kelly) fired Porter. When he leaves the senior staff look at each other and go “Wow, that’s a big lie.” Two of them pick up the phone and call the Post.

The Post reports:

White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly on Friday morning instructed senior staff to communicate a version of events about the departure of staff secretary Rob Porter that contradicts the Trump administration’s previous accounts, according to two senior officials.

During a staff meeting, Kelly told those in attendance to say he took action to remove Porter within 40 minutes of learning abuse allegations from two ex-wives were credible, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because discussions in such meetings are supposed to be confidential.

“He told the staff he took immediate and direct action,” one of the officials said, adding that people after the meeting expressed disbelief with one another and felt his latest account was not true.

I mean really. It doesn’t get much more broken down than that. Obviously Kelly knows who was in the room so now he knows that they all knew he was telling them to lie and that two of them instantly told the Post about it. He’ll probably be gone within hours.

Good riddance, by the way. Those lies he told about Representative Wilson? Unforgivable.

Plus he’s telling senior White House staff to lie, just like that. Goodbye.

At Friday’s meeting, Kelly also told subordinates to convey to other White House aides he cares about domestic violence, according to the officials.

“Tell them I care. Tell them I really really care. How much? This much.”
