New Chief of Staff John Kelly is reportedly considering an official from his former department for the role of White House communications director.

Administration sources say Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan is at the top of the short list for the spot.

Prior to serving at Homeland Security, Lapan led press operations at the Defense Department and the Marine Corps.

Lapan says he hasn’t spoken with anyone in the administration about the job, and noted he would need time to consider the proposal if he was offered the role.

This comes after former Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was removed from his position earlier this week.

    The fellow who kicked Accosta’s butt yesterday would seem to be a fine fit. Don’t let him get away!

    If this doesn’t happen I bet TED NUGENT would jump in and do this job at least until Deer season starts.

    • constitutiononly

      That would be a sight to enjoy! Acosta would probably think he had died and gone to Hell!

  • Rennae Hanson

    That wouuld be awesome!!!

  • We need someone to stop the leaks and shut Acosta up along with anyone else that wants to create a WH press briefing about themselves.

      Good morning! 71 degrees at 9:15 this morning.

      • Well, good morning. It’s smokey from BC fires and going to hit the 90’s.

          Too bad. Last year there was a big fire in the Smokey Mountains, and other places. We suspended outdoor work for several days due to air quality. I could see the flames in the Smokies from my back porch.

          I really enjoyed visiting Victoria. BC. It was hot there the second visit.

          • I really liked Vancouver when I visited although it’s been awhile since I have gone back.

    No more leaking. Left wing must cry fool.

    ✞Please Pray✞For President Trump….He is up against the largest criminal organization in the history of the world, that’s not counting the satanic global players.

    If Acosta is correct and more slave wage illegals create good paying jobs, we all should be rich as Trump by now, right?

    At attention! Get a drill instructor in that press room and get the media to stand when the Colonel walks in.

    Acosta first, I’d go home to watch that live.

    Outstanding!!! Perhaps this Marine can start treating the press corps like the shiitbirds they are. Sick of treating the LSM with kid gloves. Time for some boot camp!!!

      Interesting idea, TSA style groping of the purveyors of fake news… “Let them eat cake.”

      • Edman

        Good idea! Body and cavity search all media reporters before the can enter the press room.
