Trump Once Used Reince Priebus Just To Kill A Fly In The Oval Office…

This last week brought the news of White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus being kicked to the curb, replaced by Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly. Priebus’ being booted came on the heels of the Priebus’ feud with White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci and all the publicity it had.

Scaramucci basically accused Priebus of being a leaker and foolishly, or purposely, used a slew of vulgar language to the New Yorker where he described Priebus as a “fu— paranoid schizophrenic.”

Scaramucci never dealt with any public rebuke from President Donald Trump for his outburst towards the former Republican National Committee chairman, making it appear that Trump supported the public humiliating of his chief of staff. So, why is that? According to a piece by the Washington Post, Trump had grown quite fond of humiliating Priebus on a daily basis.

Even though he was considered to be one of the most senior officials in the West Wing, Trump on one specific occasion called Priebus into the Oval Office specifically to kill a fly that was buzzing around and annoying Trump.

From the Post’s article:

Trump’s demeaning of Priebus came through in other ways, too. At one point, during a meeting in the Oval Office, a fly began buzzing overhead, distracting the president. As the fly continued to circle, Trump summoned his chief of staff and tasked him with killing the insect, according to someone familiar with the incident. (The West Wing has a regular fly problem.)

That same humiliation continued all the way through Priebus’ being fired. After Trump tweeted that he was getting rid of his chief of staff as Air Force One sat on the tarmac at Andrews Air Force Base, Priebus was abruptly abandoned by other White House aides. He was sharing a car with Dan Scavino and Stephen Miller, and soon after, he found himself sitting in the vehicle alone because Scavino and Miller opened the car door and made a swift exit.

The last embarrassment for the man. Yikes.
