Washington Post: President Trump’s chief of staff looked embarrassed — a relatively mild assessment among the tens of thousands who have passed around a photo of John F. Kelly listening to his boss address the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, head in hand.
A Washington Examiner editor, for example, thought Kelly “went through some sort of existential crisis” during the speech, in which Trump at one point threatened to “totally destroy North Korea.”
Opinion: I couldn’t quite put my finger on exactly what bothered me so much about the above two pictures until I remembered our post from August 3, 2017 titled:
“What Are Generals Mattis & Kelly So Afraid Of?”
“Deep in the background of an AP report on the decision to replace Anthony Scaramucci with John Kelly, The Hill reports that two of President Trump’s top advisers reportedly agreed in the early days of the administration that they would not leave the United States at the same time, in order to ensure they could monitor orders coming from the White House.”
In case Kelly’s reaction yesterday is passed of as coincidence, there is this …
… and a third general known for purging Trump loyalists and protecting Obamaites.
I am getting nervous just typing this.
