John Kelly denies calling Trump an 'idiot'

Morale has eroded in the West Wing in recent months because of comments by Kelly to "aides that include insulting the president's intelligence and casting himself as the savior of the country", according to NBC via those eight "current and former White House officials". "We've got to save him from himself".

'He says stuff you can't believe, ' said one senior White House official.

A former administration official tells The Associated Press that Kelly privately called Trump "an idiot" past year.

Multiple sources have told CNN that Trump is increasingly frustrated with Kelly, and a senior administration official said Monday that the feeling goes both ways.

Spokespersons: They haven't seen any negative effects of Kelly's comments on female staffers, but said off the record that Kelly may have possibly said that women are more emotional than men. "He'll say it and you think, 'That is not what you should be saying'". "He always knows where I stand and he and I both know this story is total BS", Kelly said in a statement.

The media ignored the denials. Presidents are cared for by the White House Medical Unit and the White House physician.

A piece from Slate blogger Ben Mathis-Lilley makes a point the writer may not have considered. People who have worked at the White House before or are working there now, or people hired to speak on behalf of the White House?

The White House has been hit by another firestorm triggered by a senior aide's public exasperation and dim view of President Donald Trump, with a news report saying that chief of staff John Kelly has called his boss, the president, "an idiot" multiple times.

It then piled on with a Trump-won't-like-this barrage. Another White House official said the tensions don't seem any more urgent or dramatic now, but acknowledged that this could accelerate Kelly's departure.

Kelly, who is a former U.S. marine corps general, considers himself a check on the famously erratic president with a questionable grasp on policy and has called Trump "an idiot" to underscore that point, NBC News reported on Monday, citing multiple White House staffers. "Tillerson declined to do so, simply saying he wouldn't play that Washington game".

In his early days in the White House, Kelly imposed strict controls on access and the flow of information to Trump.
