President Donald Trump’s firing of White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on Friday and on Twitter sent the Twitterverse into a hilarious meme frenzy.
Surprisingly Trump chose DHS Secretary John Kelly as the new Chief of Staff to replace Reince Priebus.

First, Michael Flynn was fired, then Sean Spicer was replaced by Anthony Scaramucci and now Reince Preibus was replaced by retired general John Kelly. Who will be next to go in this game of thrones and political musical chairs?
