"I Was Stunned, Brokenhearted": General Kelly Defends Trump, Blasts Congresswoman For "Selfish Behavior"

Tyler Durden's picture

Making another appearance at the daily White House press briefing today, General Kelly defended President Trump's recent call to the wife of a fallen soldier saying that he "expressed his condolences in the best way he could," adding he was "stunned" and "brokenhearted" at Democratic Representative Frederica Wilson’s criticism of what was supposed to be a private call between Trump and a killed military servicemember’s family.

"I was stunned when I came to work yesterday morning and brokenhearted at what I saw a member of Congress doing.  A member of Congress who listened in on a phone call from the President of the United States to a young wife."

 

"And, in his way, he tried to express that opinion that he was a brave man, a fallen hero.  He knew what he was getting himself into because he enlisted.  And he was where he wanted to be, exactly where he wanted to be with exactly the people he wanted to be with when his life was taken.  That was the message.  That was the message that was transmitted."

 

"It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on that conversation.  Absolutely stuns me."

 

"And I thought at least that was sacred.  You know when I was a kid growing up a lot of things were sacred in our country.  Women were sacred and looked upon with great honor...that's obviously not the case anymore as we see from recent cases.  Life, the dignity of life, was sacred, that's gone.  Religion, that seems to be gone as well.  Gold Star families, I think that left in the convention over the summer."

 

"But, I just thought the selfless devotion that brings a man or a woman to die on the battlefield...I just thought that might be sacred."

Kelly concluded his remarks with a plea to the press pool, and to America at large, to please hold sacred the sacrifices of our service men and women.

"I still hope, as you write your stories, and I appeal to America, lets not let this last thing that is held sacred in our society, a young man, young woman going out and giving his or her life for their country, lets try to somehow keep that sacred."

 

"But it eroded a great deal yesterday by the selfish behavior of a member of Congress."

Why do we have a sneaking suspicion that plea fell on a room of mostly deaf ears?

She (and I say that with reservation) claims to have no evidence. She (again???) has been changing her story from the beginning. She (ugh) has been calling for the impeachment of Trump since day 1. And she's supposed to be taken seriously.

Trump responded that she is lying. That's enough. Trump should NEVER release a recording of a PRIVATE conversation with any relative of a deceased military member.

Who really gives a fuck what was said, if theres a tape? I really could give a shit less what the Prez said to some woman. This isnt relevant to my life or his policies.

Generals are cowardly scumbag political toadies. They have no honor, and that is a rule without exception in the current year, you have to go far back to find exceptions, and those may be colored by the history books.

Hey, that's fucking life, don't fucking sugar coat it: Poors get sweet talked into military and go to fight nonsense fucking wars and get killed in the process.

No, General Kelly, you fucking automaton.  Let's not keep it sacred.  Let's let everyone of these misguided morons who join the US military out of "sense of duty" or "family heritage" or whatever stupid fuck reason these mental defectives use to convince themselves that their going abroad and killing innocent people for a paycheck is some noble deed...let them know that they are chess pieces (and low ranking ones at that) for global oligarchs, and if they're lucky enough to come back alive they will be discarded by the same people who once hailed them as heroes.  You're a hero until you require medical care, then you're just a wart to be ignored.

No, fuck you.  And fuck the troops!  Seriously, Bill Hicks didn't say it sternly enough:

FUCK.

THE.

TROOPS.

I am Chumbawamba.

I usually respect your comments and find a level of intellectual relevance within. With that being said, I disagree and have no respect for "Fuck the Troops". The world is a tough place, sure youd agree. Dog eat dog, kill or be killed. Someone is always better then you, in something, somewhere at some time. If we didnt have those that sacrifice litterally everything to ensure our place at the table remained for the last 100 years, another country would. And that other country or countries would eventually work its plan both politically and militarily, dethrone the US, and you wouldnt be typing away making jerkoff comments like this. Maybe you wouldnt even be here. Why do you think you are here now? WWII. It created the dollar reserve system and bretton woods. Without it, the Marke might have been and still be the reserve currency. Or maybe the Yen would. Who knows. You ever have a six year old kid detonate himself 20 ft in front of you, killing your best friend, and ripping your leg off? Or you ever watched so many Japs litterally kill themselves in an attempt to kill you and everyone around you dont make it 3 days w out dreaming about the smell, yes the smell, of rotting burnt flesh 50 years later? No, you haven't. Otherwise you wouldnt make the dumbfuck comments you made. People like you do not deserve the opportunities afforded by this country. Not even close.

Troops defending our country at home have my respect. I would join them in a heart beat.

Troops fly oversea to kill third world poor people who cannot defend themselves do not deserve anyone's respect. Pity may be, pity that they have to die for the evil oligarchy for a paycheck.

You ever study history and read thewisdom of the men that founded this once honorable and now foul enterprise called the United States of America?  They basically told us to stick to ideals of liberty and don't get involved in others peoples' drama and shit.  Nothing you said above has anything to do with American ideals.  It reeks of a mindless pursuit of supremacy.  Eat or be eaten.  Sure, play that game of primitive desperation, and believe that it's the only option for humanity.  One big orgy of blood and war to stay on top.

Naw.  I reject that.  There is a higher purpose to existence.  The first goal is to figure out what it is.  It's pretty easy, hints are everywhere.  The next is to try to fulfill that purpose while surrounded by lesser evolved intelligence that only sees existence as a struggle to always be on the giving end of the anal, as you so eloquently stated above.

I am Chumbawamba.

Fuck you too, Chumbawumba.

Just don't come crying to me when you need another bailout in the civvie sector. You'll be telling me to lose my pension, and I'll be telling you to bite the bullet for not electing smarter people, rioting against lawless bureaucrats, and raising families responsibly while I was out of the country.

You'll fight to get yours, I'll fight to get mine, and the whole country will fall apart under the direction of evil men.

All because you're an asshole that's fighting a pawn and ignoring the kings.

Fuck you too, Chumbawumba.

"a young man, young woman going out and giving his or her life for their country"

OK, let's go with that, but please remind me, in what war in the last, say, 70 years have soldiers died for their country, as opposed to the oligarchs, the MIC, the ((New World Order)) or Israel?

Also, Gen. Kelly is behind the modern times, his pronoun choices are illegal in many states.  Is he saying transgenders lives don't matter? #TransLivesMatter /sarc

So all the planet can share in a parents grief?

Why don't you shut the fuck up, or die.

So, as usual, everyone is focus on the symptoms, forgetting the disease.

Wondering what that is?

Personality disorder narcissists people are empathy-impaired. They can have empathy sometimes or to some degree, but it is not persistent.

Self center narcissist people ‘conservatives’ problem is that their actual empathy would be indistinguishable from the false empathy they project in order to manipulate others.

Actually I find blacks to be of low character and little intellect. A dog has better manners. And is a better companion, more trustworthy, and decent.

I found my reaction was first, are there any decent blacks? I don't think so.

that's horrendous, but in any case why are US troops in Niger?

secretargentman's picture

Idiot congresswoman probably wants to invade Niger because she thinks the name of the country is a racial slur.

Why the fuck release a tape of a private conversion.  Whether Trump is another Shakespeare or as clumsy with the English language as you are, all the President was trying to do is console a widow from the highest office in the land.

Something that gutless Obama and dumbfuck Dubya refused to do.

NO, they did not.

But keep going with the fake news.

You’re pretty good at that.

NO FACTS.

Although what seems likely is that some... Ehn...."Uncomfortable" thing was said. Or so they want me to believe. Class act?

Good one General - tell your boss.

rich coming from a hillary supporter like you. I'm betting you don't treart the women in your life well. BTW, NOTHING was ever said about trump being racist or a woman hater for DECADES while he was a democrat. so stuff it scooter

Stuff it yourself loser.  The general tried to take the high ground, but there is no high ground left with a lowlife sleazebag for a boss.

Remember when Hillary(!) was the head of her husband's Bimbo Eruption Squad? Hillary(!), in her raw desire for power, would go out and attempt to crush the women whom her husband raped and abused. Yes, lets hold Hillary(!) up as a model. LOL!

And Hillary(!) no doubt knew what Weinstein was like and what he did to women. For the power and money, Hillary(!) was more than happy to take his money and let the women continue to be abused.

What's funny is your demi god has a bloody trail of bodies in her Arkancide wake,  a history of destroying women her sex predator husband preyed upon, and wonderful titles with no positive accomplishment.  Yet, a rich dude who at best viewed women as disposable conquests is all that offends you.  Get help...partisan politics are destroying your moral fiber.

The Weinstein story says it all. As long as the money was flowing into the campaign coffers, Harvey was respected, praised and adored by the Democrats. Now, all of a sudden, they are all shocked to find out he was a sexual predator for decades.

What bullshit that explanation is.

nuubee's picture

Trump talks about women letting him touch them, and people lose their minds with rage.

Weinstein donates more than any other Donor to Hillary, actually rapes women against their will, and leftards pretend it never happened.

Suck on crow, hypocrite.
