Frank Bruni: John Kelly Is Trying to Keep His Job for a Reason We Could Appreciate

‘He knows that what is going to keep this presidency as close to successful as it can ever possibly be are people around Donald Trump who are calming him when he needs calming — ‘

RUSH EXCERPT:
BRUNI: "He was telling the boss what the boss wanted to hear. He lit into the media and the media is Donald Trump's favorite whipping boy. He -- John Kelly is trying to keep his job and he's trying to keep his job for a reason that I think we should appreciate. He knows that what is going to keep this presidency as close to successful as it can ever possibly be are people around Donald Trump who are calming him when he needs calming, who are influencing him in the right ways, who are containing him when he needs containment. John Kelly, I believe, is one of the figures who is doing all of those things. I think he knows how important that is, and he went out there today to keep his job so he can do that really for all of us."
