In a report attacking Trump with a focus on new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, the New York Times dropped several interesting tidbits.
One of those tidbits: Trump’s news clippings no longer includes Conservative news outlets like Breitbart and the Daily Caller.
“Mr. Kelly cannot stop Mr. Trump from binge-watching Fox News, which aides describe as the president’s primary source of information gathering. Mr. Trump does not have a web browser on his phone, and does not use a laptop, so he was dependent on aides like Stephen K. Bannon, his former chief strategist, to hand-deliver printouts of articles from conservative media outlets.
Now Mr. Kelly has thinned out his package of printouts so much that Mr. Trump plaintively asked a friend recently where The Daily Caller and Breitbart were.”
Mike Cernovich had earlier reported White House staff limiting Trump’s reading of Conservative news:

Is it John Kelly limiting Conservative news from reaching Trump? Or someone else?
John Kelly has no love for the press, as shown in this clip where he was overheard joking with Trump about a sword:
John Kelly is one of the good guys.
Chances are the problem is not John Kelly. After all, he refused to talk to the New York Times for this article.
Most likely, the problem is with the next layer down in the hierarchy at the White House. The problem is with the people who anonymously talked to the New York Times for this article. They are the ones who put together news clippings for Trump to read. They’re the ones who are keeping Conservative news from Trump.
The Trump White House needs Trump supporters in its ranks.
Why isn’t the White House staffed with Conservatives?
