Watch Maddow React to Report National Security Adviser May Be Replaced by a Staffer Trump Thinks Is 'Fun'
The Washington Post reported late Thursday that President Donald Trump is planning to fire national security adviser H.R. McMaster.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow interviewed Ashley Parker, the White House correspondent who broke the story, before reviewing the names of candidates for McMaster's role.
Controversial Bush-era White House staffer John Bolton, and Keith Kellogg, current chief of staff for the National Security Council, are both cited as possible replacements.
The report also contains a sentence about a ridiculous rationale Trump has for considering one of the candidates.
“Part of the reason Keith Kellogg is in contention to be national security adviser is because, in part, the president ‘likes his company and thinks he is fun,'” Maddow said, quoting Parker’s report.
Maddow throws a hand in the air before going to commercial.
