With Kelly out, many political pundits, particularly those on the left, worry about what a new, less structured individual in the position may lead to.
The party was considered a significant perk for the White House Press Corps and others lucky enough to get an invitation, which allowed journalists to feast on a catered buffet of lamb chops, crab claws and elaborate desserts while roaming the White House.
Each year, the incumbent president and first lady spend much of December hosting parties at the White House, inviting everyone from family and friends to campaign staffers, top donors and members of the military.
And now the White House is scrambling to fill a critical position that nobody seems to want despite the power and prestige that comes with it.
A few days ago, our Townhall Media cousin Allahpundit wrote a piece making the case for why Newt Gingrich could be an appealing choice to replace Gen. John Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. In recent weeks, the White House pulled the credentials of CNN's Jim Acosta after he refused to give up the microphone at a news conference and restored his pass only after the network filed a lawsuit.
Trump has also broke tradition by not attending the White House Correspondents Dinners during his two years as president.
"I know the President has a long list of tremendous candidates for his next chief of staff and whomever it is will have my total support moving forward", Meadows said in a statement. The White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment by The Post.
