"I told the president that if he had a healthier diet over the past 20 years he might live to be 200 year old", Jackson said.
Trump has reportedly chafed at Kelly's controlling management style, and has occasionally talked with friends about replacing him. And Kelly suffered a significant hit for mishandling the firing of a senior White House aide accused of assault by his former wives.
However, three other White House spokespersons told the channel that they do not believe Kelly would ever call Trump an idiot, PTI reported.
Spokespersons: Kelly did say something along the lines of "The president doesn't know the full impact of DACA" but never called him an idiot. He always knows where I stand and he and I both know this story is total BS. "He'll say it and you think, 'That is not what you should be saying'".
The media ignored the denials.
Kelly also made some remarks back in February when domestic abuse accusations surfaced against Rob Porter, who was then the White House staff secretary.
"You may recall this "Relatively competent/functional person says privately that Trump is dumb" trop from such previous stories as The Secretary of State Won't Specifically Deny That He Referred to the President as a "F-ing Moron" and "The National Security Adviser Reportedly Called the President an 'idiot" and a 'kindergartner'". People who have worked at the White House before or are working there now, or people hired to speak on behalf of the White House?
White House chief of staff John Kelly personally denied calling President Donald Trump an "idiot" in an afternoon conversation with the commander in chief, relaying almost the same statement in his face-to-face talk with the President as the one he released publicly, according to an administration official.
The report also suggested the chief of staff holds that women are generally more emotional than men, and he said so once in the president's presence.
News reported Monday that Kelly has called the president an "idiot" several times, citing "eight current and former White House officials".
The private manner aides describe may shed new light on why Kelly now finds himself - just nine months into the job - grappling with diminished influence and a drumbeat of questions about how long he'll remain at the White House.
