Here’s How NBC News Got the Much-Shared Video of Chief of Staff Kelly at Trump Newser

By Chris Ariens 

There were plenty of cameras trained on Pres. Trump during his news conference in his Tower Tuesday. But NBC News wisely had one of its cameras focused on someone else standing in the wings: Trump’s new chief of staff John Kelly with is arms crossed, head down.

Quick-thinking NBC News photographer Andrew Scritchfield (who goes by ‘Scritch’ in the D.C. bureau) noticed Kelly’s reaction and focused his camera on it for more than 90 seconds as senior White House producer Kristin Donnelly took photos and videos of her own.

Scritchfield’s video was seen across NBC News platforms, and other networks as well late Tuesday and into this morning.
