While many are taking part in March Madness office pools, over in the White House, staffers are reportedly filling out brackets of their own, betting on who will be fired next.
Reporter Josh Dawsey of The Washington Post writing on Twitter, “White House officials have begun betting pools of sorts among each other on who's getting ousted next. Lot of people who are usually in the know are not in the know. Always fluid in White House but seems particularly so right now.”
MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle, claiming she’s also hearing rumblings of a “dead pool.”
Following the unceremonious ouster of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, President Trump telling reporters “I'm really at a point where we're getting very close to having the cabinet and other things that I want." So, who who could go next?
According to Fox News’ John Roberts, H.R. McMaster could be next. He’s Trump’s national security adviser, and sources say his ouster as part of the “bloodbath” is “imminent.” The two have reportedly feuded before, Business Insider reporting he’s once threatened to quit.
Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin is also reportedly drawing the ire of Trump over allegations he’s used his security detail to run personal errands.
The long-embattled Attorney General Jeff Sessions is also never far from the conversation, and Chief of Staff John Kelly is also a name being floated.
But despite this, according to the New York Times, Trump has enlisted Kelly’s help in provoking Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s departure.
