is john kelly on his way out? there's new reporting the president's chief of staff may be exiting the white house. plus a stunning move from the first lady. milania trump calls for the firing off a top security aid. said he no longer deserves the honor of serving in the white house. and the death toll rising as teams continue to search for survivors. ♪ it good morning everyone.
it's wednesday, november 14th. there are mounting reports of distent in the white house. president trump stunned by rebuke in the midterms is retreating from traditional presidential duties. the washington post dives deep into the past five days with the president's temper boiling over. the president snapped at a reporter for what he called a stupid question. he did the same in private with america's closest allies. aboard air force 1 he lost his cool with british prime minister teresa may who called to congratulate him on the midterms. he berated may on iran, trade and brexit. on his flight and throughout the weekend, he was preoccupied. in fact he watch would mounting tension as a number of house contests flipping out of
republican hands and after he chose not to attend the memorial for soldiers due to a lengthy motorcade, he thought he looked terrible. and that it would be ea public relg relations nightmare. all of this after clashes with the first lady is driving chief of staff, kelly to leave soon. some say he has gotten on the wrong side of of milania trump. and some of the disputes have escalated now to the president. she raised concerns with her president earlier this year but kelly had repeatedly denied her request to promote some of her aid. quote i don't need this expletive. a furious trump told kelly.
there have been instances where the east wing staff were not treated as equals to the male dominated decision makers in kelly's office. promotions denied and finally granted after months of request. the white house declined to comment. we'rallo following unprecedented clashes between the first lady and a senior security official. she called for the firing of mira ricardel. saying quote it is the position of the office of the first lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this whiesz. at the very same hour shs ricard eshs lerks was even appearing in photos the president posted to his twitter account. ricardel has even clashed with general kelly.
an anonymous official says she has been confirmed by the senate and has never met milania trump. and reporting that nick ayr eshs sshs is among those that might replace kelly. one white house official speaking under condition of anonymity said personnel decisions don't mean anything until formally announced. >> and the washington post shs as you pointed during sunday's flight from paris, aids in the private cabin to lobby against ayres. they said appointing ehim would perhaps trigger an expletive. and he enjoys the support of ivanka trump and kushner. trrs the vice president's office
had no comment on the possibility of the appointment. and white house reporter for politico, gabby ore. lelt john kelly's been in the office for close to 18 months. at the end of july he was appointed. so if he gets fired, the impact would be what? this is a guy who was brought in to bring order under what had been somewhat chaotic under reince priebus. >> looking at what happens with john kelly if he does infact leave the white house -- staff morale after the midterms is quite low. sources said tensions are really boiling over. the finger pointing game has begun. a lot of white house aids are on edge, waiting for a major shake up. kelly could be such a casualty of the shake up. and president trump is going to be tasked with finding someone
who can shepered the white house into a new era of the trump presidency. the president is going to have to work with a democratic controlled house. he's going to face a number off investigations and somebody in that role needs to be able to lead the white house and run a staff and make sure morale is as high as it possibly can despite all the investigations and subpoenas aids are going to face. nick ayres is supported by the president's children including donald trump jr. who has been a frequent person on the campaign trail. but he also faces some staff opposition. there are a number of people in the white house who view him as this political ladder climbbar. the other person being floated is the director of the office of management and budget. he's a close ally of the president. he has a great relationship with president trump.
and aids think he would fit nicely into that role. >> remember floating the idea that the president would be his own chief of stafff? >> and his own communications director. and milania trump. releasing a stunning and somewhat unprecedented statement weighing in on national security staff on world kindness day. is this kind of reaction unprecedented? i know they weigh in on a lot of things internally but to do so brazen like this >> it's not unusual to clash. ronald regan and nancy regan are one of the primary examples that came to mind.
she got president regan's chief of staff fired. but there was no public rebuke of this sort in that situation. trrs the statement issued by first lady was just extraordinary. we haven't seen anything like it from a white house previously. for the first lady's office to undercut a senior aid and so i think her fate is certainly in question. we're told yesterday she still has a job but given time to pack up her belongings and at least by the end of this week. >> it will be interesting when the back story starts to trickle out and gets leaked what it is that mira did that drew the ier of the first lady. >> there's a lot more to be figured out. turning to the tragic fires burning in california. crews are on the scene off a
fast-moving new fire in southern california. sierra fire was reported in san bernardino county around 9:00 last night lobal time. trrs oofficials say it burned through 20 acres in 15 minutes and threatening homes in fontana and just over the boarder. officials report progress is now 40% contained, up 10% from this time yesterday. progress was up north was a little bit slower as crews try to take advantage of the night time humidity. we're told the camp fire is 35% contained, up 5% there. trrs the death toll grew to 48 after they found more remains in scorched homes in the city of paradise. trrs they've requested the national guard's help canvassing
the area for bodies. 200 people were still unaccounted for. they're working to update that list. >> pretty grim. it has been more than a week since the midterm elections. in the race for senate republican governor rick scott still leads bill nelson by about 12,000 votes. nelson's campaign seeking to bar the top election official. the lawsuit asks the judge to insure that florida department of state does not disbar ballots. they're marbed in different ways as long as the voter's intention is clear. a ruling in the lawsuit could be key in how numerous ballots are tallied. president trump weighing in, when will bill nelson concede in florida? the characters running broward
and palm beach -- and making matters worse the superof elections announced last night that both county machines over heated and stopped working altogether, having to recount 375,000 early vote. and new york times oped columnist wrote a piece yesterday titled "a tool of autokrats." president trump, governor rick scott off florida have all falsely accused democrats of trying to steal the election. well, chem's campaign accuse his opponents stacey abrams of making up numbers? the democratic opponent is trying to steal this election. senator rubio writing left wing
commentators have no shame just making things up. only thing we ask is they follow the law, report updated votes every foifb minutes. finish by recount deadline. and hate crimes spiked in america last year. plus we have monica lewinsky revisiting the scandal that put she and bill clinton directly in the spotlight. those stories and check on weather with bill when we come right back. r with bill when we e right back it was here.

>> reporter: do you think mr. whitaker needs to recuse himself from the russia investigation? >> there may be reasons but if your reason is as a private citizen he gave his opinion on certain things, then the answer is no. because he was a private citizen. what's that got to do with his official duties? it really doesn't matter because right now he's going to go eto the ethics people ask if he's got to be recused. >> senator dianne feinstein is calling to have acting ag whitaker and jeff sessions speak. the first lady's office has issued a written statement calling for the ouster of the depute anational security
advisor after conflincts in the white house that could put chief kelly's job in trouble too. >> reporter: publicly calling for the firing of one of her husband's top advisors, mi mira ricardel. it can could lead to kelly's departure. seven people familiar say kelly has tangled with the first lady's team from everything to staffing issues to travel requests. there have been instances where the east wing weren't treated as equals to the male dominated in the west wing's office. milania trump acknowledging last month the white house can be a challenging environment. >> you always need to watch your back. >> reporter: and she blasted the
national security advisor, john bolton. that person, mira ricardel. saying it's the position of the office of the first lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this white house. ricardel infuriated with the first lady by interfering in his first solo overseas trip to africa. >> you don't want the staff at the white house to be concerned with infighting. >> our thanks for that report. during the run up to the midterm elections, president trump repeatedly brought up the migrant caravan from south america, labelling quote an invagsz and despite that senses off urgency, trump hasn't tweeted about the caravan since
halloween and only talked bute it once when he responded to a question during last week's news conference. and while fox news spent more than 43 hours, they didn't focus on it at all a day after the midterms. four white house officials and outside advisors say inside the west wing the caravan was a useful midterm messaging tool. and now that the election is over, trump's attention has turned elsewhere. the largest caravan is still 1,000 miles away and has shifted its route to go farther west. mattis says the mission along the boarder of south texas is exactly what the is. adding quote we'll have to see what the future holds. right now that's the only message i have.
>> a message there for the messaging. meanwhile the latest court order on the child separation policy shows out of 2,667 children separated, 25 still in custody and not eligible. 99 still in custody with parents deported or chose not to reunite. >> and gabby, good to have you back with us. let's talk a little about the caravan. a rot of people described it as a fear tactingic ahead of the election. is there any way to explain this other than it simply being political? >> i think leading up to the midterms most of us were watching the issue and speculating it was purely political and he was using this
to drive out his base on election day and that has become undeniable in the aftermath of the election. we're not seeing him talk about it as much. he did sign a presidential proclamation that addresses asylum seekers but he did so privately. there was no ceremony at the white house which is something this president has loved to do for immigration related and hasn't talked about thiz issue in public since the midterm elections. he did answer a question during that raucous white house vist last week. no background briefings. frshs it seems to have been an issue the president used to turn out his base. >> shocked, i tell you, shocked. >> that is extraordinary considering the amount of man
power that has gone down to the border. so bottom line you think we're going to hear a lot about immigration after now these midterms? is this something the president esoos as a winning issue, at least for the base? >> i don't think immigration is going to suddenly disappear. it's certainly an issue that riles up his base. kwe and the democratic houses majority it seems the president is going to continue this issue. to say democrats are obstructing his agenda and unwilling to cooperate. there might be bipartisan movement but i don't see that happening on immigration nor do most democratic and republican law makers. that seems like it would fit nicely in the republican's stump speech and i certainly expect him to continue using it as he

would be his own chief of staff. is that completely off the table now? >> he almost is his own chief of staff as it is now. that's sort of the challenges that general kelly has had the entire time is managing those information flows and keeping track of who the president is calling and who is president is talking to. i think the president certainly is, unlike many of his predecessors, his own chief of sav. even if john kelly is forced out, there will be someone replacing him in that role. >> can i ask about the latest with jim acosta. we have the lawsuit cnn filed against the white house. >> we talked to some legal aides yesterday saying that the secret service and government agencies can't revoke those things. we spoke to one of trump's allies who says cnn's position is pretty good. we'll have to see how quickly that moves through the courts. >> let me ask you quickly about the topic of immigration. the caravan has fallen by the
way side both in terms of the stories and the public. do you think it was a political stunt? >> there were some politics involved, absolutely. we'll see that as these caravans get closer, the first smallest one might arrive in a week or two. does that create any conflict or tension on the border? do the troops in the border have to get involved at all? or is there any action to drum up on the hill. immigration is a huge driver of politics, certainly among the president's space. so i don't see him ignoring it for long. >> thank you very much. i can't wait to get any axios a.m. newsletter. we're into it. >> we give you a preview of it, at least. >> yeah. >> that does it for us. "morning joe" starts right now. >> i own it a hundred percent. no mortgage, no debt. you can all check. we make the finest wine was as good of wine as you can get
