President Trump could be playing 4-D chess while the mainstream media is playing checkers.
That’s what Fox News’ Dana Perino suggested when she laid out a brilliant plan that Trump may have been working on for weeks that ultimately led to the ouster of Reince Priebus.
General John Kelly — the widely-respected Secretary of Homeland Security — was just named to replace Priebus as White House chief of staff in an unbelievable shakeup.
While the liberal media is gleefully foaming at the mouth slamming the Trump White House as being in “chaos,” Perino thinks there’s a method to the madness.
“I think that this was all set up for a few weeks because the president has been so upset about Jeff Sessions and his recusal in the Russia investigation,” Perino said on The Five. “The Republicans and conservatives that came to Jeff Sessions’ defense this week all said, ‘But he’s doing the best on the issue we care about most, and that is immigration.’”
Perino continued: “Well, where can Jeff Sessions do even more on immigration? As the Secretary of Homeland Security. So I think what they’re going to try to do is move Sessions over to DHS, and then how can conservatives complain? And then you have a new AG … who can fire [Robert] Mueller.”
Dana Perino’s co-hosts on The Five were so struck by the mind-blowing logic behind the strategy that they ooohed and aaaahed. An impressed Jesse Watters remarked: “So he’s playing chess and everyone else is playing checkers.”
It’s unclear if that was President Trump’s plan all along, but it’s no secret that he’s very unhappy that Sessions recused himself, paving the way for the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.
Mueller — a close friend of Obama appointee and fired FBI director James Comey — has stacked his staff with Democratic donors, fueling rampant speculation that Trump will not be given a fair shake in the “Russia collusion” hoax.
If Trump moves Sessions to DHS, he could hire another Attorney General, who could then oversee the Russia investigation himself and fire Mueller.
Under DHS Secretary John Kelly, ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) has made tremendous progress cracking down on the brutally violent MS-13 gangs and illegal immigration. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is currently in El Salvador to further the fight against MS-13.
Dana Perino is right: Sessions would make an excellent DHS secretary. Many Trump supporters thought her analysis made a lot of sense.
Dana Perino just suggested she sees AG Sessions moving over to HOMELAND SECURITY!! He's been GREAT on immigration! NATURAL FIT? STAY tuned!

Wow Dana Perino just had a prediction..Jeff Sessions can take the place of John Kelly as homeland security head and that allows for a new AG

Even people who generally don’t like the globalist Perino thought she made an excellent point.
You're watching Trump play 4d Chess. Much of what comes out of this administration isn't what it appears to be. pic.twitter.com/aN5tqDXsS7
