In a recent report from NBC News, current and former White House officials told the news network that John Kelly, the White House Chief of Staff, has said women are "more emotional" than men-proof he clearly hasn't been paying any attention to his own boss:

Four current and former officials confirmed Kelly said this to aides "multiple times," including once in front of President Trump.

However, White House spokespeople told NBC that Kelly hasn't had a negative effect on female staffers, though they admitted Kelly possibly did say women were more emotional; one of those spokespeople also agreed and said, "Generally speaking, women are more emotional than men."

Kelly also made some remarks back in February when domestic abuse accusations surfaced against Rob Porter, who was then the White House staff secretary. Kelly reportedly asked how much Porter "would have to endure" and wondered why his ex-wives "wouldn't just move on." (I'd comment on this, but as a woman, I fear I would get too emotional, you know?)

NBC News also reported that a few current and former White House officials believe Kelly will leave by July and that it's clear "both Trump and Kelly seem to have tired of each other." Is it possible Kelly has tired of Trump's own relentless outbursts and emotional tirades? Who knows. But if you're a woman, please grab a gigantic box of tissues and read the full report, here.
