The Trump administration seemed to be spiraling out of control just three days ago. The infighting reached an all-time high. With the disastrous selection of Anthony Scaramucci it looked things would only get worse.
A lot has happened since then. Reince Preibus resigned as Chief of Staff. That position should never have gone to someone who had no government experience. He also was given the insufficient authority to do the job.
Enter Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly. Kelly is a retired Marine general. He certainly has government experience and organizational skills. A number of assignments exposed him to the civilian government so he understands the difference between the two.
President Trump greatly respects military men so Kelly ought to be quite influential. He already has made the excellent decision to send Scaramucci back to his previous position.
The White House finally has some adult supervision. There will certainly be more turmoil but it looks like the administration is ready to rebound.
