Trump’s firing of Priebus sent Twitter into frenzy

The president’s firing of White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on Twitter sent the Twitterverse into a hilarious frenzy as users pointed the finger at newly appointed White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci.

President Donald abruptly announced late Friday that the tumultuous six-month tenure of Priebus has come to an end. This user compared Trump’s first few months in the White House to the Game of Thrones, calling it the ‘Game of Trump’

Trump wrote in a tweet: ‘I am pleased to inform you that I have just named /Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. 

Trump named Secretary of Homeland Security John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff, but some folks don’t think he will last long in Trump’s administration

‘He is a Great American … and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration.’

And sure enough, the internet, as always had a few things to say about it.

Another user tweeted out a blast from the past when Kellyanne Conway embarrassingly confused the arrest of two Iraqi refugees in Bowling Green, Kentucky, for attacks the same men perpetrated on US troops in their home country, calling it the ‘Bowling Green Massacre’

One Twitter user said that House Speaker Paul Ryan’s statement read like ‘Reince died’. 

Another Twitter user wrote that Priebus did not sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). 

On Thursday, Priebus, the former Republican National Committee head, was the subject of a remarkable and profane public rebuke by Scaramucci.

The New Yorker magazine published an interview in which Scaramucci called Priebus, amid an avalanche of vulgarity, a ‘paranoid schizophrenic’. 

Trump, who reportedly ‘loved’ the expletive-filled rant, was said to be unhappy about Priebus’ unwillingness to fight back, according to an adviser who spoke to the Wall Street Journal. 

On Friday evening, in an interview on CNN, Priebus insisted that he resigned and wasn’t actually fired. 

He told Blitzer: ‘This is not a situation where there’s a lot of ill will feelings. 

‘This is good for the president, I think it’s smart for him to pick General Kelly, and I think things are going to be run very well.’

And later on Friday evening, Priebus said in an interview on CNN that Trump ‘has the best political instincts’.
