Empty Barrel Kelly: Does He Want To Run The United States of America Like GTMO? -- No Questions Asked...

106 posts in this topic

 

John Kelly has his head bowed in frustration and shame as Trump refuses to condemn neo-Nazis, white supremacists and Ku Klux Klan members who participated in the unite the right rally in Charlottesville on August 11th-12th 2017.

 

The white nationalist rally culminated in the death of Heather Heyer,

a 32 year-old Charlottesville Virginia woman who died,

as one of the white nationalist rally participants plowed his speeding car into a crowd of peaceful protesters, according to the Charlottesville Police.

You should. The general's body language certainly said a lot during the Political Apprentice's controversial "blame on both sides" remarks about the violence in Charlottesville last month. :ph34r:

 

" The scene is set for waves of tension between General Kelly and our impulsive, self-absorbed and misinformed chief executive.

 

Absent some political earthquake, the length of Kelly's tenure will depend on the balance he can strike between a patriotic desire to make trump as fit a commander in chief as possible and

 

the cumulative effects of trump's compulsion to go AWOL.

 

And it will be tough to persuade trump that this should not be a family-run business. "

The very stressed John Kelly never knows what Trump is going to say until he actually says it.

 

John Kelly is taking the mantle from Clyde Beatty and we'll see how long he will survive in the Lion's Den.

Trump Invites General Kelly On Stage During Alabama Rally [VIDEO] https://trib.al/mrMXBx0 DKYVonBWsAAo88e.jpg

 

 

Here is the vengeful, vindictive trump publicly humiliating the retired General for his public reactions during trump's speeches.

 

Nobody can get away with trying to put trump on a leash.

 

trump reminds me of a Vicious and Nasty Chained Junkyard Dog. Even though he's chained, you know that dog is getting ready to break that chain and could be at your throat in minutes unless you make a quick retreat.

 

Good Luck, General Kelly.

Kelly lends Trump powerful and personal credibility-

 

The chief of staff delves into his own tragedy to defend Trump’s call to a military widow — and offers an apparent rebuke of his boss’s coarse ways.

 

 

"...In an extraordinary performance that mixed poignant experiences, political strategy, nostalgia for a less hostile society, and a seeming rebuke of his boss, Kelly accomplished what few others have been able to do: Forcefully vouch for Trump in a moment of political peril......

 

Kelly reiterated that Obama had not called him after his son's death, but that he had gotten a letter,..

 

And, in fact, he said he advised Trump not to call the families of the soldiers slain in **** at all but was overruled by the president....

 

He told the briefing room that women were once sacred in the United States -- not mentioning his boss's famous boast that he could sexually assault them because he was famous. He mentioned that Gold Star families were also once untouchable -- not mentioning the president's lengthy imbroglio with the Khan family last summer after the GOP convention. He talked about the dangers of military service without mentioning that his boss mocked Sen. John McCain for being held hostage and tortured in Vietnam........

 

What was most effective about Kelly’s delivery, observers said, were the personal experiences that he invoked to defend a president who avoided military draft with bone spurs.....

At what point does Kelly really stop being patriotic and becomes an enabler to a man who is not only unqualified for the job, but who is dangerous to the existence of people in the entire world.

 

Reportedly Kelly and Mattis have already rehearsed what they would do if trump wanted to launch a nuclear strike.

 

If Kelly and Mattis really cared about the future of the United States and the world, they would go down to the Congress with the 25th Amendment and do what needs to be done.

Instead of reining in Donny, it looks like Trump is infecting

Kelly. Quite a show he put on. Sidestepped the fact that

Trump was lying when he said he never used that phrase 

during the phone call. Then he diverts away from that and

goes after the Congresswoman who was telling the truth.

Not his finest hour.

Or the hunter is captured by the game. Of course military men sacrifice all

the time, even generals. But to sacrifice yourself for a scam artist and

lying buffoon like Donny MAGA must be hard to swallow.

Well, General Kelly is certainly no General MacArthur.

 

 

But in all fairness--

 

trump's fake hairdo couldn't stand the Heat in Harry Truman's kitchen.

 

 

 

But at this moment, I bet General Kelly wishes that he could "just fade away".

I'd call that a good thing. Truman took care of Dugout Doug.

Kelly probably wants to dig a foxhole and stay in it for about

a week.

It was nasty, personal, and, as the Miami Herald reported, a lie. And Rep. Wilson didn’t say a bad word about Kelly.

John Kelly, answering a question as to why U.S. Special Forces are in_Niger: We are in Africa to "teach them how to respect human rights".

DMhknYxVoAAZheM.jpg

 

LMREO!

 

 

 

John Kelly has the nerve say that he is sending the US to a foreign country to teach somebody about human rights and he hasn't even taught the president anything about human rights.

 

He stood there during that Charlottesville press conference and looked down and his shoes--

 

Maybe that's where they left their information about human rights and the Holocaust and Klan lynchings when his Protege told the world that there were some good Nazis and

some good Ku Klux Klan members.

 

Then yesterday Kelly has no defense for what Trump said to the war Widow so he simply attacks the Congresswoman who brought it to the Forefront.

 

People make personal attacks when they don't have any facts to stand on.

 

To make matters worse his personal attack was inaccurate and a lie. To make matters even worse, he sends out an idiot girl Huckleberry Sanders to tell everyone that the congresswoman was stupid and a liar.

 

Now first trump said that she lied, then Kelly said she lied, then Sanders said she lied-- so now we've got three liars in the White House.

 

But the congresswoman is backed up by the hard evidence of videotape, media investigations, and of all people James Comey!

 

It's a small small world but it looks like it's going around in circles.

He should feel that way but I'm not sure he has the character that people seem to attribute to him.  I think that character is a show.  He flies with the crows, man.

I admit to not knowing very much more about Kelly than the

surface things that are in the media. Maybe he wasn't the guy

people thought he was or hanging around Donny hasn't been

a good thing. Either way, he didn't help himself with that clueless

speech.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders suggested that reporters should let the matter drop "  Kelly's criticism of Dem lawmaker's speech "and should not be challenging Kelly, a retired Marine general.

"If you want to go after General Kelly, if you want to go after a four-star Marine general, that's highly inappropriate," she said.

 

Sanders has definitely been around Trump to much.
