WASHINGTON – White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus made sure there was someone in the White House available to watch President Trump while Priebus ran out for coffee, according to a senior White House official.
“Priebus said he would be out, like, fifteen minutes, max,” the official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of upsetting the White House. “He wanted someone to hang out in the Oval while he was gone, to keep an eye on the president.”
After asking around, Priebus finally got an aide to sit in the Oval Office while he was gone. When he got back, the aide told him everything was fine, except for one minor hiccup.
“The aide said there was one time Trump tried to eat a paperweight but he was able to stop him. So, crisis averted.”
