Even by White House standards, this scrap was reportedly a doozy.
Writes Kaitlan Collins and Jeff Zeleny: "A heated argument in the West Wing between chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton over a recent surge in border crossings turned into a shouting match Thursday, two sources familiar with the argument told CNN."

Sounds like some of us have worked, fought about issues and found paths forward. Complacency dont feed the BullDog. Fight,surrender, or go for your gun. MAGA

(if you're going to lie....They should have at least quoted the other 500 Reporters that were there)...../s
Yes...exactly!.....Frankly it’s encouraging to know our guys are passionate about their views and unafraid to raise the volume in the room. Politicians are too afraid to do so.....true leaders are not!
Way tooo big!
