President Trump publicly says he has every confidence in John Kelly, but talk of who might supersede the embattled chief of staff begins to hot up. Kelly is in hot water, of course, over the White House’s handling of former staffer Rob Porter, who’s accused of mistreating his two ex-wives. The White House claims it didn’t know about the allegations until recently, but FBI Director Christopher Wray blew that fib out of the irrigate when he certified the members of the bureau repeatedly briefed the White House last year on its investigation into the aide.

Meanwhile, Michael Cohen, the President’s personal advocate, said he paid porn ace Stormy Daniels $ 130,000 out of his own money. Daniels supposedly had a sexual encounter with Trump before his time in power, something Trump disclaims. So, why the payoff? Cohen replied, “Just because something isn’t true doesn’t mean that it can’t make you harm or shatter. I will ever keep Mr. Trump.”
