President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday that the competition to become the next White House Chief of Staff is heating up, in spite of reports that everyone so far offered the post has turned it down.
Chief of Staff John Kelly will depart his post at the end of the year.
"Fake News has it purposely wrong," wrote Trump. "Many, over ten, are vying for and wanting the White House Chief of Staff position. Why wouldn’t someone want one of the truly great and meaningful jobs in Washington. Please report news correctly. Thank you!"

Not quite, Mark Hamill interjected. The Star Wars actor gave Trump a dose of reality; no one wants the job because Trump's legal woes are crushing his presidency.
Hamill rewrote Trump's tweet:
"Fake News has it purposely wrong," Hamill joked. "Many, over age ten, are lying for and wanting the White House Chief of Staff position. Why wouldn't someone want to be in charge of rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic? Please report news as I imagine it to be. Thank you!"

CNN reported on Tuesday that Trump thinks impeachment is a "real possibility" after Democrats take over the US House in January. The president has been implicated in violations of campaign finance laws leading up to the 2016 election.
