White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said on Sunday that he isn't interested in following Donald Trump's tweets.
Someone, I read the other day, said we all just react to the tweets. We don’t. I don’t. I don’t allow the staff to. We know what we’re doing. Believe it or not, I do not follow the tweets. My purpose is (to) make sure the president is briefed up on what he’s about to do are what they are (but) we develop policy in the normal, traditional staff way.
If he doesn't, he's a liar or a fool. Such claimed "ignorance" in every circle of professional life would be considered negligence or malpractice. Not being familiar with the boss's writings, instructions, directives, and/or concerns. If not as CoS, he's not doing his job. Nanny?— TRUTH&JUSTICE (@OMETA16) November 13, 2017
As Chief of Staff, you really should. Kind of irresponsible to NOT know what your boss is telling the rest of the world, -— Sean Callebs (@sfcallebs) November 12, 2017
If you’re not following everything he does publicly then you’re derelict in your duty and responsibility to the people you work for....me and 324 million others. Wake up and do your job! Why do you need some grandma in Tennessee to tell you that??— TheDogLady (@TheDogLady1228) November 12, 2017
Then he's derelict of duty.— NYC ghost🗽 (@NYCdisinterest) November 12, 2017
Trump's tweets inform national policy and reach a global audience instantaneously.
You are the Chief of Staff. You know that your sociopath boss creates chaos like a 3rd Grader in a Candy Store on Twitter and you don’t look? Really? You should be summarily fired for dereliction of duty.— Edward Letourneau (@Dr_Ed_L) November 12, 2017
I'm thinking you might want to pay attention to what your Adult Day Care attendees are doing. It seems they are a bit out of control. Put a little effort into keeping the two trouble makers apart. I really don't want to wake up dead tomorrow.— Jim F (@FallacaroJim) November 12, 2017
Thank you for your attention.
perhaps you should---he could easily declare war on Twitter since that is generally his MO😞— 🏳️🌈Bonni Moschetti 🖤 (@bmoschetti) November 13, 2017
You have lost your credibility. No one believes you. What you have just said is absolutely ridiculous. We know you watch this like a hawk. Just stop it.— Edward Letourneau (@Dr_Ed_L) November 13, 2017
