At least one person is willingly throwing their name into the ring: British commentator and former Celebrity Apprentice winner Piers Morgan. Morgan penned an open letter Tuesday in the British tabloid The Daily Mail, asking Trump to let him take the helm overseeing White House daily operations.
While Piers notes his qualifications may not be immediately obvious when compared to a “hugely respected war hero like General John Kelly,” Morgan argues “the key thing is to have someone at your side that understands you, has known you a long time, likes you and commands your respect.”
Morgan proceeds to enumerate the qualities Trump himself reportedly used to describe the contestant after his appearance on the president’s Celebrity Apprentice, writing, “let’s be honest, what more could you possibly want from your Chief of Staff? You could have been talking about yourself!”
