White House Chief of Staff John Kelly dinged the White House press corps Thursday when he told them the amount of misreporting they do is “astounding.”
Kelly was asked to “peel back the curtain” on President Trump’s frustrations, giving him an opening to criticize the reporting on Trump.
“One of his frustrations is you, all of you,” Kelly said. “Not all of you, but many of you.”
“When I read in the morning, and I read, well I won’t tell you what I read and watch TV in the morning, it is astounding to me how much is misreported,” Kelly said. “I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you are operating off of contacts, leaks, whatever you call them. But I would just offer you the advice and say maybe develop some better sources.”
The media isn’t the only source of frustration for Trump, according to Kelly — just maybe one of his biggest ones. He said the president is also frustrated with the political process and with Congress.
