August 1, 2017: TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

Anthony Scaramucci is out as Communications Director.  Retired General John Kelly is in as the new Chief of Staff.  We take a deep look inside the West Wing with Chris Whipple, the author of New York Times best-seller “The Gatekeepers:  How The White House Chief of Staffs Define Every Presidency.” Hip hop violinist, Damien Escobar, fought through depression and homelessness, and is now performing to huge crowds across the country.  It’s a story about one man “chasing the dream” you won’t want to miss. Rosie O’Donnell’s theater kids meet Carole King’s “Really Rosie” as summer camp meets Broadway and lives are affected forever.

> GOOD EVENDEMOAND WELCOME TO 'MEDEMOOCUS.'

I'M RAFAEL PI RDEMO.

WHITDEMOUSE COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR ANTHONY SCARAMUCDEMOAS BEEN DEMOD AFTER 11 DAYS ON THE DEMO THE OUSTING WAS DEMOBY PRESIDENT TRUDEMO NEWLY APPOINTED CHIEF OF STAFF, GENERAL JOHN KDEMO.

IT WAS A SHORT BUT EVEDEMOL TENURE FOR THEDEMOMER WALL STRDEMOFINANCIER, WHO WILL LONG BE REMEDEMOED FOR A PROFANITY-LACED TIRDEMOTO A REDEMOER.

PRESIDENT TRUMP ATDEMOTED TO DEMOSURE THE PUBLIC ALL WAS WELLDEMOEETING, QUOTE, A GREAT DAY ATDEMO WHITE HOUSE.

HOW ARDEMOINGS IN THE WEST WING LIKELY TODEMOOLD WITH GENERAL KDEMO LEADING THE WHITE HOUSE STAFF AS A FIRSDEMOONG EQUALS?

JOINING US IS CHRIS WHIPPLDEMOHE AUTHOR ODEMOHE GATEKEEPERS: HOW THE WHITE HOUSE DEMOFS OF STAFF DEFINEDEMOERY PRESIDENCY.'

DEMOKS FOR TALKING WITH US, I KNOW YOU'DEMOEEN A BUSY MAN.

THANKS FOR HAVINDEMO.

IN DEMOEPILOGUE YOU WROTE FOR YOUR BOOK BACK IDEMOCEMBER, YOU PREDDEMOD THE DYSFUNCTION THAT WOULD BESET THIS WDEMO HOUSE, WHICH CULMINDEMO IN THE CHAOTIC EVENTS OF LDEMOWEEK.

WHAT DEMOYOU PREDICT, AND HOW DIDDEMO KNOW?

AFTER THE SHOCKDEMORESULTS OF THE ELECTDEMO I HURRIEDLY WROTE DEMOPILOGUE.

I SAID DONALDDEMOMP, THE ULTIMATE OUTSIDER DEMO NO GOVERNMENT EXDEMOENCE, WITH MORE THDEMONY OF HIS PREDECESSORS NEED AN EMPOWEREDEMOITE HOUSE CHIEF OF STAFF IN ORDEMOTO DEMORN.

I DON'T TAKE GREAT SATISFDEMOON IN THE FACT TDEMOTHAT'S BEEN PROVED TRUE, BECAUSE IDEMOBEEN A DISASTRDEMOFIRST SIX MONTHS FOR TDEMO.

WAS IT DEMOUSE THE WRONG CHDEMOOF STAFF IN REINCE PRIEBUS OR BECAUSE TRUMDEMO TRUMP?

PRIEBUS MADEMO LOT OF ROOKIE MIDEMOES AS WHITE HOUSE CHIEF.

IN FUNDEMONTALLY THE PROBLEM WAS THAT TRUMP DID NOT UDEMOSTAND THEDEMOURE OF THE JOB.

HE DIDN'T EMPOWERDEMOEBUS TO EXECUTE HIDEMOENDA.

AND MOST IMPDEMONTLY, TO TELL HIM WHAT HE DOEDEMOT WANT TO DEMO.

IN AN INTERVIEW THAT YOUDEMOE TO 'THE DEMOINGTON POST' AFTER GENERAL DEMOY WAS NAMED CHIEF OF STAFF BUT BEFDEMOANTHONY SCARAMUCCI WADEMORED AS CDEMONICATIONS DIRECTOR, YOU GAVE DEMOORT LIST OF THINGS THAT HAD TO HAPPEN FOR GENERDEMOELLY TO REALLY BEDEMOCONTROL AND TO RESTORE ORDER IN TDEMOHITE HDEMO.

AMONG THOSE THINGS DEMO, ONE, YOU SAID THDEMOELLY HAD TO BE THE REDEMOATEKEEPER.

RDEMO.

EVERYONE TRYING TO GEDEMO THE PRESIDENT, WITH DEMOPOSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF STEVE BDEMON, HIS STRATEGIST, AND TDEMOAMILY MEMBERS, WOULD HAVDEMO GO THROUGH HDEMOO GET TO THE PRDEMOENT.

AND TWO, YOU SAID DEMO ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI SHOULDEMOT BE WITHIN -DEMOTERALLY, THIS IS A QUOTE -- WIDEMO A HUNDRED MILES ODEMOE WHITE HOUSE.

LO AND BEHODEMOA DAY AFTER, THOSE THINGS HAVE DEMOENED, EXCEPT EVDEMOORE, BECAUSE ACCORDING TO REPORTS,DEMONKA AND JARED, HIS DEMOHTER AND SON-IN-LAW, ADEMOLSO GOING TO HADEMOO GO THROUGH JOHN KELLY AND DEMOOURSE SCARAMUCCI, AT LEAST AS DEMOUNICATIONS DIDEMOOR, WON'T BE ANYWHERE NEAR THE WHIDEMOOUSE.

DID THAT SURPRISDEMOU?

AND WHDEMOOES IT SAY ABOUT KELLY, WHO ISDEMOORTED TO HAVE DEMO THIS DECISION INSISTING ON THESEDEMOISIONS?

FIRST OFDEMO, I DOUBT KELLY WAS LISTDEMOG TO ME.

HE SHOULDEMO.

HAVIDEMOAID THAT, I DO THINK FIRING SCARAMUCDEMOAS A NDEMOAINER.

THIS WAS A GUYDEMO WAS A WALKING DEMOOON.

TO MIX MY MEDEMOORS, A LOOSE CANNON ROLLINGDEMOUND THE DECK, FIRING SHOTS INDEMORY DIRECTION.

YOU CANDEMOAVE SOMEBODY LIKE THAT, ESPEDEMOLY IF THEY'RE REPORTING DIDEMOLY TO THE PRDEMOENT.

THAT WAS A MINIDEMOFIRST STEP, THAT HADDEMO TO HAPPEN.

IT HAPPENDEMOAND APPARENTLY KELLY DOES HAVE OR DEMO HE HAS OR BELIEVEDEMO HAS THE KIND OF AUTHORITY DEMO REINCE PRIEBUS NEDEMOGOT.

IF THDEMO TRUE, ALL OF THAT IS DEMOTIVE.

AT THE END OF THE DEMO HOWEVER, THIS IS A BROKENDEMOTE HOUSE SO DEMO IT'S A WDEMO HOUSE THAT HASN'T BDEMOABLE TO DO ANYTHING RIGHT, FROM ISSDEMO EXECUTIVE ORDERS DEMO ARE UNENFORCEABLE, TO PASSING LEGISLADEMO, TO PRIDEMOIZING THE PRESIDENT'S AGENDA, TO GEDEMOG EVERYBODY ON THE SDEMOPAGE.

ALL OF THAT,DEMOA NORMAL WHITE HOUSE, FLOWS FROM AN EMPDEMOED WHITE HDEMO CHIEF WHO IS EXECUTING THDEMOESIDENT'S ADEMOA.

THAT HASN'T HDEMONED.

AND IT MAY WELLDEMOPEN NOW, BUT IT'S AN EXTRAORDINARY CHADEMOGE FDEMOELLY.

WHAT ABOUT THDEMOALLENGE OF KELLY CONTROLLING THDEMOESIDENT HIMSELF, SPECIFICDEMO HIS TWEDEMOG?

SO EVEDEMO KELLY MANAGES TO GET ALL OF THAT DEMOORITY AND MAKES THE TRAINS RUNDEMOTIME, HE STDEMOHAS THIS HUGE PROBLEM OF DONALD DEMOP.

TRUMDEMOS BEEN FAMOUSLY UNDISCIPLINED, DEMOTHE KIND OF GUY IN HIS 71 YEARS SO DEMOTO WELCOME A TDEMO TELLER INTO THE OVALDEMOICE.

NO OTHER PRESIDENCY HAS EDEMOHAD TO DEAL WITH SOMEONE, A DEMOF EXECUTIVE, DEMOFIRES OFF IDEMOIONAL TWEETS IN THE MIDDLE OF THEDEMOHT.

AND WHEDEMOU'RE TRYING TO GODEMO.

I'M ASSUMING WHEN HE DEMO HE NEEDED DEMOET CONTROL, IF HE CAN GET CDEMOOL?

DEMO SUGGEST THAT PERHAPS HE SHOULD -- KELLY DEMOLD DRAW SOME RED DEMOS.

EVERY EFFECDEMO WHITE HOUSE CHIEF OFDEMOFF HAS TO BE PREPADEMOTO RESIGN.

PLENTY OF THEM DEMO.

DEMOTY OF THEM HAVE BEEN FIRED.

THE DEMOAGE TENURE IS A LITTLE LESS THAN TWO YDEMO.

TRUMP WILL PROBABLY GDEMOROUGH SEVERAL MORE WHITE HOUSDEMOIEFS, WDEMONOWS?

WE'LLDEMO.

BUT I DEMOESTED THAT KELLY SHOULDDEMOSIDER SAYING, MR.

PRESIDENDEMO KNOW THAT YOU CAN BE TWEETING YOUR BULLYDEMOPIT, I KNOW IT CAN BE EFDEMOIVE FOR YOU DEMOOME WAYS, BUT THERE'S A RED LIDEMOOR ME.

IF YOU TWEET SOMETHINDEMOAT IS DEMONSTRABLDEMOLSE, I WILL RESIGN ANDEMOU CAN FIND WHITE HOUSE CDEMO NUMBER THREE.

WHDEMOR KELLY WOULD BE WILLING TO DRAW THATDEMOE, I HAVE NO DEMO.

WEDEMOSEE.

SO GENDEMO KELLY IS THE THIRD GENERAL DEMOHE CLOSE CIRCLE OF ASSDEMOTES OF THE PRESIDENT.

THDEMOCRETARY OF DEFENSE IS A GENERAL, THE NATIONAL SECDEMOY ADVISDEMOS A GENERAL.

AS YDEMOAID, DONALD TRUMP IS FAMOUSLY UNDISCIPDEMOD, HE DOESN'T BELDEMO IN PARTLY CLOUDY AND REGULAR CHDEMOOF COMMAND.

BUT HE LIKES GENDEMOS.

HOW DO YOU DEMOAIN THAT?

I CAN'T GET INSIDE HIDEMOAD, I DEMOT PLAY ARMCHAIR PSYCHDEMOIST.

BUT WHAT I WILL DEMOIS THAT THE HDEMORY WITH GENERALS AS WHITE HOUSDEMOIEFS IS NOT ENCOURAGING.

THEY MAY BE VEDEMOOOD AT THE CHAIN OF COMMADEMOBUT THE LAST TIME A GENERALDEMO WHITE HOUSE CHIEF, IT WADEMO HAIG UNDER GERALD FORD AFTER DEMON DEMOGNED.

HADEMOASTED LITTLE MORE THAN A MONTH, IDEMOS FRANKLY A DEMOSTER.

AND ONE OF THE DEMOONS IT WAS WAS HAIG WAS UNABLE TO CDEMOOL JERRY FORD'S WDEMO HOUSE.

HE WAS UNABLE TDEMO A REAL GATEKDEMOR.

PEOPLE WEDEMOOMING AND GOING.

JERRY FORD LIKED IT, HEDEMOLED IT THE SPOKES DEMOHE WHEEL WITH FORD AT THE CDEMOR.

IT WAS ADEMOASTER.

WITHIN A MONTH, FDEMOWAS BEGGING HIS OLD PAL DON RUMSFDEMOTO COME IN AND DEMO THE WHITE HOUSE INTO SHAPE, WHICH DEMOFELD DID AFTER DEMO EMPOWERED HIM.

SO WHAT DDEMOU THINK, THEOREDEMOLLY CAN GENERAL KELLY RDEMO THIS SHIP?

CAN HE HELPDEMOE THIS A SUCCESSFUL PRESIDEMOY?

THERE'S DEMOYS A CHANCE.

IT MAY BEDEMOLIM CHANCE, BECAUSE DEMO AGAIN, EVEN IF HE DOES EVERYTHING RIGHT,DEMO EVEN IF HE IS EMPOWERED AS TDEMOATEKEEPER, AND EVEN IF, AND THDEMOARE A LOT OF IT'S, ALL THE SENIOR ADDEMORS COME THRODEMOHIM TO DONALD TRUMP, AT THE DEMOOF THE DAY HE IS STILL DEMO WITH A PRESIDENT WHO HAS SO FADEMOEN UNDISCIPLINED, UNFOCUSEDDEMOABLE TO GODEMO.

AND SDEMOR HASN'T REALLY LEARNED ANYTHING ABOUT GOVEDEMOG.

CHRIS, THANK YOU SO MUCDEMOR JOINIDEMOS.

I WAS NEVEDEMOHAMED OF IT.

I FDEMOED IT WAS JUST MY PATH AND I DEMOD WALK IT.

'AMERICA'S GOT TADEMO,' TELL US ABOUDEMOAT.

I WAS IN A GROUDEMOTH MY BDEMOER.

YOU KNOW, WE HADEMOME SUCCESS PRIOR DEMOAMERICA'S GOT TALENT.'

WDEMOLD OURSELVES, WE JUST HAVE TO GDEMON THE SHOW ONE TIME.

WE ENDDEMOP NOT ONLY GETTING ON THE SHOW BDEMOASTING UNTIL THE END OF THE COMDEMOTION.

THADEMOALLY CHANGED MY LIFE COMPDEMOLY.

BECAUSE NOW WDEMOD THIS SOUND, AT THAT POINT THERE WEDEMOT A LOT OF VIOLINISTS DOINDEMOAT WE WERE DODEMO WE WERE ONE OF THE FEW DEMOG IT.

AT THAT POINT DEMOOOK THIS LDEMOE NICHE GENRE AND TOOK IT AROUDEMOHE WORLD.

WE BECADEMOVERNIGHT PHENOMENONS.

ANDEMOR SOUND WAS NOW CELEBRATED DEMOND THE WORLD.

IT WAS GREAT, BECDEMO IT WAS A DEMO.

WHEN YOU'RE DEMOOUNG, EVERYONE KNDEMOWITH SUCCESS COMES MONEY.

WHEN YODEMO YOUNG, YOU DON'T HAVE A DIRECTION, DEMODON'T HAVE -- YOU'VE NEVER DEMO OUT WITH SOMEBODEMOHAT MADE A MILLION DEMOARS.

YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DEMOWITH DEM WHAT DEMOENS IS, YOU START TO USE, AT LEAST FODEMO, MY GIFT WASN'T SO MUCH A GIFT ASDEMOWAS NOW THIS TOOL THAT DEMO ME DEMOY.

I STOPPED APPDEMOATING EVERYTHING AROUNDEMO.

THATDEMOHEN I STARTED GOING -- I STARTED DECLINING AS ADEMOAN DEMOG.

LETDEMOAST FORWARD TO 2012 WHEN THINGS REALLY STARTDEMOO UNRDEMO.

THIS IS WDEMOTHE GROUP DIDEMODED.

IN 20DEMOI LOOKED IN THE MIRROR ADEMOAD NO IDEA WHO I DEMO I WASN'T DEMOSSARILY PROUD OF MYSELF AT THDEMOOINT IN LIFE.

EVERYTHDEMOWAS ABOUT WHAT MONEY COUDEMOUY ME.

I DIDN'T APPRECIATDEMOOPLE.

WHEN I ENDED UP DEMONG ALL OF IT, WHEN THEDEMOUP WAS ABANDONED, I LOOKED IDEMOE MIRROR AND HDEMOO IDEA WHO WAS STARIDEMOACK AT ME.

I HIT THDEMOWEST POINT OF MY LIFDEMO 2012, IT TOOK FIVE MDEMOS UNTIL I ENDED UP HOMDEMOS, GOING FROM LIVING IN A MULTIMILLIDEMOOLLAR CONDO OVERLOOKINGDEMOHATTAN TO SLEDEMOG ON THE SUBWAYS.

I TELL PEOPDEMOHAT WAS THE WORST TIME OF MY LIFE BUDEMOSO THE DEMOT GREDEMOT.

WHEN YODEMO DOWN TO NOTHING AND YOU'RE LEFT WITH YOURSELFDEMOU CAN EITHER FIDEMO OUT WHO YOU ARE OR CONTINUE DEMOECLINE.

IT TOOK ME DEMO TIME, ACTUALLY ABOUT A YEAR, UNTILDEMOAID, YOU KNOWDEMOVE GOT TO PICK MYSELF BACK UDEMOD DO SOMETHING WITH MY DEMO.

NOT A DEMOOF PEOPLE KNOW THIS, DEMOI DID NOT GO BACK TO MUSIC.

THE FIRST TDEMO I DID WAS WENT TO REALDEMOATE.

ADEMO ARTIST, I WAS USED TO PEOPLE TAKING CDEMOOF ME.

NOW I HAD TO TAKEDEMOE OF PDEMOE.

IN TDEMOPROCESS OF TAKING CARE OF PEDEMO, YOU START TO APPREDEMOE THINGS.

EVERYTHING WDEMOIFFERENT FOR ME.

ADEMO STOPPED SELLING REAL ESTATEDEMOER ABOUT THREE TO FOUR DEMOHS.

IT WASN'T BEDEMOE OF, YOU KNOW, NOW I HDEMOO BECOME A PUBLIC SERDEMO.

DEMOAS MORE SO BECAUSE I REALIZED THAT I WASDEMOOPERATING IN MY PURDEMO.

AND I REMEMBER SITTIDEMON THE TRAIN GOING BADEMOOME, BECAUSE I HAD TO MDEMOBACK HOME TO JAMAICADEMOEENS.

I REMEDEMO SITTING ON THE TRAIN AND I DID SOME SOUL SEARDEMOG.

I HAD TDEMORGIVE MYSELF.

I HAD TO FODEMOE OTHER PEOPLE ARODEMOME.

I HAD TO TDEMOOWNERSHIP FOR HOW MY LIFE TURNDEMOUT.

I PICKED MY VIOLIN BACDEMO.

>DEMOD IT FEEL DIFFERENT THE SECOND TIME AROUND, WHEDEMOE BEAUTY OF YOUR MUSDEMONCE AGAIN RECDEMORED YOU?

DEMOH.

HOW DIDDEMOFEEL DIFFERENT?

THE THING IDEMOHEN YOU DON'T HAVE ANY MONEY ANDDEMO'RE A MUSICIAN, THE ONLY THINDEMOU CAN DEMO ON IS MUSIC.

ADEMO WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH AT THAT POINT NOT TO HAVE BDEMO, NOT TO HAVE TO DEMOY ABOUT MONEY, ADEMOUST CREATE AND BE AN ARDEMO.

NO ODEMONEW ME.

NO ONE KNEW DADEMOESCOBAR.

DEMO KNEW ME AS THE GUY WHO USED TODEMOIN A GROUP BUT THEY DIDN'T KDEMOME OUTSIDE OF THAT.

I DEMOASED A MIX TAPE MADE IN MY MOTHER'S BADEMONT.

THREE YEARS LATER, DEMO016, THAT SAME DEMOM ENTERED THE BILLBOARD DEMOTS.

FOR ME THAT WAS KIND OF LDEMOAN AFFIRMATION, LIKE WOWDEMOEN YOU'RDEMOERATING YOUR PURPOSE, THE DOORS DEMO UP.

THIS IS,I'M SUPPOSEDEMO BE.

THIS ISDEMORE I'M SUPPOSED TO BDEMOAN.

AND OF DEMOSE WITH THAT OBVIOUSLY OVDEMOOUR OR FIVE DEMOS I WORKED MYSELF BACK UP TO BEING SUCCESSFUL, ADEMOITH THAT COMES DEMOY.

BUT THE JOURNEY NOW FORDEMOIS SO MUCH DDEMORENT.

IT'S NOTDEMOUT MONEY.

FOR ME IT'S ALWDEMOBEEN ABOUT CHASING PURPOSE AND NOT DEMOING PAPEDEMOIGHT?

WHEN YODEMOASE YOUR PURPOSE AND YOU OPERATE IN YOUR PDEMOSE, I CAN'T DRIVE TDEMOPOINT HOME ENOUGH, I SDEMOT MY CONCERTS, MAKE IT ABDEMOTHE PEOPLE.

DEMOCEIVE MESSAGES ON A DAILY DEMOS FROM FANS SAYING, HEY, I'M STADEMO CANCER AND YOU SAVED MY DEMO, OR THIS TEENAGER FROM CANADA, I REMEMBDEMOT, THEY SAID, DEMOS ABOUT TO COMMIT SUIDEMO AND YOUR MUSIC SAVED MY DEMO.

DEMO I HAVE A REDEMOSIBILITY AS AN ADEMOT DEEPER THAN MONEY.

IDEMONICE TO SEE THAT SOMEDEMOS PEOPLE CAN HIT THAT BOTTOM AND LEARN THEIDEMOSSON AND DISCOVER TDEMOEAUTY OF THE MUSIC, IT SAVES YOUDEMOFE, IT AFFECDEMOTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES.

TDEMO YOU SO MUCH, GOOD LUCK ON THE DEMO AND EVERYTHING ELSE.
