Testy Trump Claims ‘Over 10’ People Want To Be Next Chief Of Staff

President Donald Trump is having problems finding someone who’s willing to serve as the next White House chief of staff, and recent news reports that numerous candidates have rejected the offer for various reasons.

Nick Ayers, who currently serves in the same position for Vice President Mike Pence, was supposed to replace current Chief of Staff John Kelly, who’s leaving at the end of the year, but Ayers backed out at the last moment, perhaps because he doesn’t relish the idea of having to babysit the Toddler-in-Chief.

But according to Trump, the “fake news” is making up all the problems he’s having finding a new chief of staff and he’s got plenty of qualified applicants:

Here are some of the names currently being tossed around in Washington as possible replacements for Kelly:

  • Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), chairman of the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus
  • Robert Lighthizer, the current U.S. Trade Representative
  • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin
  • White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney
  • Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
  • Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker

If indeed the president has so many people lining up for the job, why is it taking so long to name someone? Twitter had some thoughts on that matter:

No one wants to work with or for Donald Trump. He’s the boss from hell, and a White House position in this administration is a ticket to endless subpoenas and potential indictment. Trump is toxic and unhinged. May he should consider just grabbing his iPhone and giving the job to Siri.
