A Reality Show Presidency?

From the backstabbing to the petty drama, the Trump presidency is starting to feel an awful lot like a reality show.

Was that the plan all along?

The drama continued at the White House Thursday as Reince Priebus resigned or was fired as Chief of Staff after just 6 months.

The President announced via Twitter that he had named Homeland Security Secretary General John Kelly to take his place.

The announcement came after days of very public infighting among the inner circle of the Trump White House.

This infighting included White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci telling the New Yorker Thursday that "Reince [Priebus] is a f***ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac."

The New Yorker piece included some even more colorful quotes.

Yesterday General Kelly fired Anthony Scaramucci after only 10 days in the job.

Do you think this reality show approach to the presidency works in Trump's favor or harms him?
