John Kelly’s rumored replacement is a thirty something Pence orbiter:
“WASHINGTON — John F. Kelly, the retired Marine general tapped as chief of staff by President Trump last year to bring order to his chaotic White House, will leave the job by the end of the year, the latest departure from the president’s inner circle after a bruising midterm election for his party.
Mr. Trump, who made the announcement to reporters on the White House lawn before departing for the Army-Navy football game in Philadelphia on Saturday, said that he would name a replacement for Mr. Kelly, perhaps on an interim basis, in the next day or two.
“John Kelly will be leaving — I don’t know if I can say ‘retiring,’” the president said. …”
There seems to be no end to this revolving door of mediocrity. Nearly all of the original cabinet picks have been replaced and there doesn’t appear to be any sign of progress.
*gigantic eye roll*
President Trump: "We're talking about a wall for $20 billion, $15 billion – I could even do it cheaper if I have to. And it'll be better than anybody's ever seen a wall." https://t.co/SOfv56ylbb pic.twitter.com/kCQ4wmuYkN

Jarvanka played a key role in John Kelly’s demise:
Jared & Ivanka were critical to pushing John Kelly out. Kelly said the two were “playing government” and didn’t want to follow the rules and should not have been in the White House. They’ll stay. He leaves. https://t.co/wt46oGhxzk
