I am pleased to announce that Mick Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management & Budget, will be named Acting White House Chief of Staff, replacing General John Kelly, who has served our Country with distinction. Mick has done an outstanding job while in the Administration….

Twitter users immediately chimed in with snark, speculation and lots of suggestions for the new chief of staff.
Mick Mulvaney is going to be so pissed when he hears this.

Perfect! Trump’s COS needs to be someone already in legal jeopardy or entirely devoid of integrity. Anyone else would be throwing their career away. Mulvaney is a “good” fit.

Soon to be used Mick Mulvaney derogatory terms by Trump…
Pain in the Mulvane
And my favourite: Huge mistake, huge…terrible, terrible person Mick.#RIP Mick.

Some people had questions.
How many Scaramucci’s will he last? 🤔

Did you make sure he said yes? I mean, he wasn’t just nodding off? Did he SIGN something? Other than the NDA? Check him for a wire, Don Don.
Check everyone. pic.twitter.com/H9mBASu3ZW

Others had advice for Mulvaney.
Probably wouldn’t order office stationery just yet, Mick…
