On his fifth day on the job as Donald Trump’s new chief of staff, John Kelly gathered about 200 White House aides for a meeting where he spelled out in blunt terms the way things are going to work in the West Wing he now oversees.

The retired Marine Corps four-star general said he didn’t care whether they had been part of the Trump campaign or had joined the administration from Capitol Hill or another corner of the political world, according to people who attended the meeting. They all work for the president now, he told them, and they had to act as one team.

Echoing the Marines’ credo of “God, Country, Corps,” Kelly said he expects all of them to put country first, the president second, and their own needs and priorities last. He stressed work ethic. And he sharply warned them against leaking, an obsession of Trump’s. Even if it may seem innocuous to pass along some bit of classified information to someone without a clearance, he said, it’s a crime.

    Well, he has so far miserably failed to point out that McDisaster is no team player.

    We can only hope Trump leaves him alone to do his best work. Read an article interviewing the guy who was in charge on Trump when he went to military school. He said Trump was helpless at taking care of himself, but once he learned, he took great pride in not just learning it buy being the best at it. In every assignment, he started out as a newbie, but worked to rise to the top. Certain traits we had as kids follows through throughout our lives, and I think that is an interesting window into Trump.
