NBC News is reporting that, according to eight sources, John Kelly thinks that Donald Trump is an idiot; that he, himself, is saving the country from disaster; and that if Trump had not hired him, “we would’ve entered WWIII or the president would have been impeached.”
The officials said Kelly portrays himself to Trump administration aides as the lone bulwark against catastrophe, curbing the erratic urges of a president who has a questionable grasp on policy issues and the functions of government. He has referred to Trump as “an idiot” multiple times to underscore his point, according to four officials who say they’ve witnessed the comments.
Also, around 65 percent of the country knows that Trump is an idiot and say so, aloud, every single day of their goddamn lives, while another 25 percent of the country is too stupid to recognize what an idiot that Trump is.
The article also suggests that John Kelly expects to leave in July, after completing one year in office, although the article’s authors also say they don’t have a fucking clue when John Kelly will actually leave because no one understands anything anymore.
The piece also adds that the White House staff has lost confidence in Kelly; that Trump knows that Kelly thinks he’s an idiot; and that Kelly’s only two friends on the inside now are Kellyanne Conway and Don McGahn.
And while Kelly believes that “women are more emotional than men,” staffers say that he hasn’t had a negative influence on the morale of female staffers. In fact, it’s just the opposite.
If anything, they said during meetings Kelly is the “bigger gentleman” who steps in when aides use foul language to note “a lady is present” and similarly says he shouldn’t use foul language in front of a lady if he’s used an expletive. The spokespeople, who would not speak for the record, said it’s possible Kelly may have said women are more emotional than men, with one of them agreeing that “generally speaking, women are more emotional than men.”
Honestly, that may be the worst indictment of John Kelly in the entire piece: That he feels he has to protect women from bad words.
Get over yourself, John Kelly.
