DASVIDANIYA, JOHNNY? ACTING DEPUTY PRESS SECY JOHN BARRON CALLS JOHN KELLY A “NUT JOB” IN LEAKED WHITE HOUSE TAPE
Washington (eTruePolitics) – Acting Deputy White House press secretary John Barron (also known as John Miller) was reportedly caught today on tape calling beleaguered chief of staff John Kelly “a nut job, you wouldn’t believe this guy,” according to White House sources. A boyhood friend of the current president, Barron’s nut job comment, which echoed reports of Trump using the same language, may indicate that Trump’s patience with the tedious, grim general was at an end.
Press secretary Sarah Huckleberry Sanders denied the leaked Barron tape “if it exists” implied anything about Trump’s relationship with the increasingly isolated and bitter Kelly.
“The president wouldn’t recognize this John Kelly if they were in the same room,” snarled Sanders, “so the rumors you-all are spreading that he’s going to be fired are ridiculous.”
Sanders said that the president had no reaction to Barron’s description of Kelly as a boring control freak, adding that, “as a general principle, Mr. Trump prefers interesting people to nut jobs.”
