UConn Trick Shot Quarterback John McEntee Loses White House Job

The official, who requested anonymity to discuss personnel issues, said McEntee had been expected to travel with Trump - as he always does - when the President departed for a trip to California on Tuesday.

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.

While it's unclear why McEntee was sacked, the Journal reported that there may have been something in McEntee's background check.

Senior administration officals told the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday that McEntee was escorted out of the White House on Monday.




A longtime personal assistant to President Donald Trump was reportedly fired and escorted out of the White House on Monday, with one report claiming the ouster was due to a criminal investigation.

A source tells CNN's Kaitlan Collins that "McEntee was sacked because he is now under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes", although the source also emphasizes that these potential crimes are "not Trump related".

But the faithful Trump aide didn't go far as he was immediately hired by the President's reelection campaign team. 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.

McEntee was the first Trump official to be ousted from the White House this week. While he was by no means a superstar on the field - McEntee led the Huskies to a 5-7 record with 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2011- he did find viral fame thanks to a trick shot compilation video posted to YouTube. "John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".
