Dysfunctional White House So Scared of Leaks Daily Staff Meetings Have Now Been Canceled

Amid constant leaks that keep spilling out of the Trump Administration, the White House is limiting the number of its daily meetings, reports The New York Times.


The change results from a White House staff member, Kelly Sadler, making poor comments about Sen. John McCain.

The daily meeting brought together nearly 30 communication staff members. The meeting has not taken place over the past week. One source told the New York Times that the team has met in smaller groups.

When asked about the change, deputy White House press secretary, Lindsay Walters, said she would not comment on “internal matters.”
