Twitter Goes Wild Over Trump Announcing Another White House Shakeup in a Tweet
President Trump announced another major shakeup in his administration via Twitter this afternoon, and Twitter can’t handle it.
Reince Priebus is out as Chief of Staff and General John Kelly, the current Homeland Security Secretary, will be replacing him.
It’s not as if Priebus’ ouster was a big surprise, but people were still pretty taken aback by this news:

Add Priebus to the (growing) list of Republicans — Christie, Spicer, Sessions — who’ve been paid back with humiliation for supporting Trump.

Ok, yea. Spicer and Reince would be great on Dancing with the Stars together.

Frankly this humiliation is an appropriate end for Priebus, who was a key figure facilitating Trump's rise.
