IN FOR A PENNY, IN FOR THE POUNDING (profanity alert):

"BEYOND DISBELIEF": JOHN KELLY'S DEFENSE OF ROB PORTER ROILS THE WEST WING (GABRIEL SHERMAN, FEBRUARY 7, 2018, Vanity Fair)

For weeks, Donald Trump has been souring on his Chief of Staff John Kelly because of his controlling ways and rising public profile. And now Kelly is in the midst of a bonafide crisis, one that exacerbates the president's own #MeToo problems. On Tuesday, Kelly strongly defended White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter against disturbing allegations, first published in the Daily Mail, that he abused his ex-wives. Kelly's decision to back Porter has left many people inside the White House angry, two sources with knowledge of the matter said. On Wednesday afternoon, Porter resigned. Axios reported Kelly wanted Porter to "stay and fight."

General Kelly has already shown us what he is.
