Ring. Ring.

Reince rang Rahm.

Sneed has learned White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, whose future in the tumultuous Trump White House has been in limbo, called up Mayor Rahm Emanuel at City Hall on Thursday morning.

Here’s the drill.

“Reince wanted to thank Rahm, who had once been President Obama’s chief of staff,” a City Hall source said.

â?¢ Translation: Priebus, a soft-spoken Wisconsin native who was just included in Time Magazine’s annual list of the world’s 100 Most Influential People, called our outspoken, spitball of energy mayor for his comments about him in the Time 100 article.

â?¢ Quoth Rahm to Time:

“Reince Priebus and I don’t share much beyond our Midwestern roots and unique names â?? and, of course, a love of politics.

“But we will always be in the small fraternity of those who answered a president’s call to serve as White House chief of staff.

“In both our cases, we assumed the role at the beginning of a new administration, after a contentious election and transfer of power. We started from scratch.

“When I had the role, I used to joke on Fridays, ‘Lucky us, just two more workdays until Monday.’

“It’s an all-consuming, thankless job â?? but walking through those gates at the beginning and end of each day, no matter how early or late, brings a tingle to your spine. The day that goes away is the day it’s time to go.”
