Apparently, new White House chief of staff John Kelly is unable to stop the war, or is siding with McMaster against Bannon. "Sometimes he drives me nuts", Trump said this week, according to a White House official.
"Kelly backed firing of Kushner ally Ezra Cohen-Watnick to make it clear HR McMaster, not Jared/Bannon, has control of NSC hiring", Thrush tweeted, citing sources close to Cohen-Watnick's firing.
