New York Daily News Cover Perfectly Trolls Donald Trump's Search for a New Chief of Staff, and It's Savage AF
Ever since news broke that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly would step down at the end of 2018, people speculated who would replace him. Then when President Donald Trump's first choice for a replacement—Nick Ayers who currently serves as Vice President Mike Pence's Chief of Staff—announced he also would leave government service at the end of the year, people began throwing out suggestions.
Now the New York Daily News weighed in. Their front page for Tuesday featured a help wanted notice with some very specific qualifications.
They posted their front page to Twitter Monday night.
