Boothe on New WH Chief of Staff: Media Tries to Destroy Anyone Who Enters 'Trump Orbit'
Kelly replacement will deal with several Dem investigations.
Lisa Boothe said on "Next Revolution" that prospective candidates for the White House chief of staff position may be hesitant to join President Trump's inner circle right now.
Trump said Saturday that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly will leave his position at the end of the year following a week of rumors about his impending departure after 17 months on the job.
Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, was understood to be Trump's choice to take over, but said he will not accept the job.
I am in the process of interviewing some really great people for the position of White House Chief of Staff. Fake News has been saying with certainty it was Nick Ayers, a spectacular person who will always be with our #MAGA agenda. I will be making a decision soon!

Boothe said the new chief of staff will face multiple investigations of the White House by the incoming Democrat-controlled House. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said Sunday that if the president is proven to have directed hush payments to women in 2016, it would qualify as "impeachable offenses."
"Certainly, they're impeachable offenses, because, even though they were committed before the president became president, they were committed in the service of fraudulently obtaining the office," he said.
Boothe said the new chief of staff "will be facing a whole different game" and whoever fills the role will need to be prepared. She said the media's coverage of the administration for the last two years is also making it difficult for Trump to "attract talent."
"Anyone that gets involved with the Trump orbit ends up getting destroyed by the media or at least the media seeks to destroy them," she argued.
"Jeff Sessions was labeled as a racist. You look at the treatment of anyone surrounding President Trump, Sarah Sanders screamed out of restaurant. I do think that kind of behavior from the media and the left does impact the decision-making of people wanting to work for the White House."
