Does Anyone Want to Be Trump’s Chief of Staff?

Does Anyone Want to Be Trump’s Chief of Staff? December 14, 2018

I can’t imagine why anyone would want that job, or any job working for Trump, and apparently a lot of people agree with that who might otherwise be interested. How bad is the job search going? We’re starting to hear rumblings of candidates like Newt Gingrich and Jared Kushner.

The longer the process drags on, the more names that get kicked around. Among the latest is Newt Gingrich, the former House Speaker and eager Trump fanboy who was at the White House Wednesday. Gingrich said he was there to advise Trump on his chief of staff search, but his name has been kicked around in conservative media and according to one reporter, he’s currently “topping” the list of candidates.

When The Atlantic’s Elaina Plott asked Gingrich late Wednesday if he was interested in the gig though, he said, “No.” Also a “No” is Rick Santorum, whose name was one of the many on the long list of possibilities that have been floated this week.

And now a lot of talk is centering around Kushner, who may not be able to take such an official position due to nepotism laws. The only one who seems to be pursing the job is, of all people, Piers Morgan. He’d actually be a perfect fit for Trump, a clueless media personality who seeks little other than attention. But it really doesn’t matter who takes the job, or if anyone does. Trump will do what he wants, whatever his gut tells him to do, regardless of any advice from anyone. And he will inevitably undermine anyone in that position because he has zero discipline.
