UConn Trick Shot Quarterback John McEntee Loses White House Job

Donald Trump to meet Saudi crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman on March 20 White House US President Donald Trump will meet Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on March 20

He will join the Trump campaign instead.

Kelly, the White House chief of staff, has said in recent weeks that too many staff members were operating on interim security clearances because they could not pass Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks.

"Mr. McEntee wasn't as well known as the others, but had been a constant presence at Mr. Trump's side for the past three years", the newspaper reported.

McEntee, who went by Johnny as UConn's starting quarterback in 2011, was working at Fox News after graduation when he joined Trump's campaign as a volunteer and quickly got hired to a full-time position in August 2015.

While everyone in Washington was talking about Rex Tillerson, a long-time aide to Donald Trump was shown the White House door.


In what now serves as a sort of time capsule of 2011, McEntee spent the video spanning the UConn campus, hitting various trick shots while M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" and MGMT's "Kids" blared in the background.

McEntee was escorted from the White House on Monday, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN. Shortly after his announced firing, he was hired by the Trump campaign - which is becoming a landing place for numerous former Trump hands who are unwilling or unable to work in the White House.

His exit follows another original Trump campaign aide.

Just minutes after the report, the Trump re-election campaign announced that McEntee would re-join as a senior advisor for campaign operations.

"As we build out our operations for the 2018 mid-term elections and the 2020 reelection campaign, we are pleased to welcome back two outstanding members of our 2016 team", Brad Parscale, the Trump for President campaign manager, said in a statement.
