Is the Trump White House in chaos?
That's what many in the media are suggesting after a busy week that saw White House communications director Hope Hicks step down and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner have his interim security clearance downgraded.
There have also been reports that Kushner and Ivanka Trump are feuding with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, and that National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster could be the next high-level official to go.
On "The Five" on Friday, Jesse Watters said it's no surprise that there's drama at the White House, and, despite that, the Trump administration is still getting things accomplished.Article continues below
"They're like a football team. They turn the ball over a lot, they give up a bunch of sacks, the quarterback's throwing picks, everything like that. But they always come back in the 4th quarter, put points on the board and come away with the win," Watters said.
He pointed to the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, tax reform and the defeat of ISIS as notable successes.
"Trump is a chaos kind of guy. He thrives on it. A lot of it's personnel, but a lot of it's self-inflicted, I would agree, but it's a feeding frenzy with the press," Watters said. "Blood is in the water, so they're just trying to survive."
