A majority of American's don't agree with President Trump's assertion that his turmoil-filled White House is not in chaos.
After a historic week of back-stabbing and sacking of prominent officials, 60 per cent of Americans think the White House is in chaos, compared to just 33 per cent who say it is running smoothly.
Among those, 38 per cent say it is running 'very chaotically' and 22 per cent say it is running 'somewhat chaotically.
Republicans surveyed don't tend to agree. Sixty-three per cent of them say the White House is running smoothly, but just 25 per cent of Independents and 12 per cent of Democrats say it's running smoothly, according to a Politico / Morning Consult survey.
President Donald Trump praised his new White House chief of staff John Kelly on Monday, and has denied his White House is in 'chaos'
Among Independents, 65 per cent see chaos, a number surpassed by the 80 per cent of Democrats who agree with the characterization.
Trump took on the media narrative of non-stop drama and back-stabbing on Monday morning, tweeted 'there was 'no WH chaos.' By the end of the day, the president proclaimed it in a tweet to be a 'great day at the White House.'
As it turns out, within hours his foul-mouthed communications director, Anthony Scarammuci, was out of a job within hours.
Just 45 per cent of those surveyed had seen a lot or some reporting on Scaramucci's comments about other senior staffers.
