Ain't no one gonna think less of you for stepping away, General. In fact, I'd wager the feeling would be quite the opposite.

I don't like Kelly a lot.  He enjoyed being head of deportations and prison camps a little much.

But he grabbed a live grenade taking this job.  Ain't gonna blame him for handing it over to Trump, saying "good luck boss..." and diving out a window.

"I now have time to think" Mr Trump has told one of his senior aides..

If you weren't tired of D2S's crap two years ago (or more), you are either stupid, or an asshole. All due respect to the General.

A bit of advice for General Kelly: Donnie isn't worth it. A general's pension is mighty big, more than enough to take the grandkids fishing. Screw this asshole
 
2017-09-02 12:07:54 PM  
You did more with less than any Marine should have to, General.

But trump's a lying, egotistical, incompetent, bottomless well of ignorance and blind, reactionary rage. What's not to like?

If Kelly punches Trump in his vagina neck and his fist gets stuck, does that count as fisting?

Officer Barrelroll: If Kelly punches Trump in his vagina neck and his fist gets stuck, does that count as fisting?


I don't know if I'd call it fisting, but I'd certainly call it a good start.

Why would anyone even THINK that?

Trump is like Claudius in Hamlet.  Soon he will be wandering around the castle in all hours of the night, confession his sins.
Oh, wait. He does that on twitter.

I'm sure the Respect Our Military Servicemen Republicans will be outraged by this.

The president, for his part, has marveled at the installation of management controls that would have been considered routine in any other White House.

The businessman President, ladies and gentlemen.

As I'm a thick Limey, could someone please explain to me the meaning/origin of 'D2S'? I'm guessing 'Donny two scoops' but I could easily be wrong.
 
2017-09-02 12:13:52 PM  
The capable members of the Cabinet -- Mattis, Tillerson, Shulkin, Cohen, Mnuchin, Ross, Chao, McMasters -- and Kelly should threaten to resign en masse if Trump doesn't make a serious effort to get his shot together and stop acting like a petulant, self-indulgent asshole. Only a vote of no confidence of that magnitude has any chance of sobering Trump up to the reality of just how dysfunctional and dangerous his presidency has become.

You are correct

Leave. Let him f*ck up as hugely/bigly as possible.

Save yourself.
 
2017-09-02 12:15:28 PM  
Professional cat herders expressed disbelief that Kelly would take on such a monumental task.

FTA: "But Mr. Trump does not have a web browser on his phone, and does not use a laptop, so he was dependent on aides like Stephen K. Bannon, his former chief strategist, to hand-deliver printouts of articles from conservative media outlets."

No one told him what the Chrome icon does?

Babysitter grates on baby, and the feeling Is mutual.
 
2017-09-02 12:16:01 PM  
I continue to believe, as the article suggests, that Kelly is in this position not because he believes in Trump or agrees with the Trump way, but rather because he hates Trump and sees the danger he represents to the country. He stepped in to keep a lid on the gas can and ensure that someone worse (and then someone even less qualified after that guy quits/is fired) doesn't step into the position of "Trump Whisperer" and make things even worse for everyone.

He's doing this because he's a patriot, not because he's a Trumper. I don't like the guy, but he's got stones and they're in the right place.

I'm sure that Trump responds well to what he would see as a threat.

I've heard people say that Kelly "Doesn't suffer fools".

Then what the hell is he doing working for the biggest farking fool of all?

Hope this helps:

I don't deny this article.  But until they do something about him, they are still just spineless lock and step party before country pussies

No, it's a toxic self-confidence that they think they can "change" him after so many have failed.

Now that the point has been brought up, it's important to an understanding. A well-infromed citizenry is a good one, or whatever. Look, no one wants to inadvertently fist POTUS, and Officer Barrelroll is only taking one for the team here.

Thanks. It could equally have been a dentistry term, which obviously would have left me just as puzzled.

He most likely lost a bet. This should be obvious.

The White House will be a better place today than when he arrived.  If he leaves tomorrow, he can still be proud of a major accomplishment.

If true, we are going to need a bigger Medal of Freedom.upload.wikimedia.org

Mr. Kelly, the former Marine general brought in five weeks ago as the successor to Reince Priebus, reacted calmly, but he later told other White House staff members that he had never been spoken to like that during 35 years of serving his country. In the future, he said, he would not abide such treatment, according to three people familiar with the exchange.

If Kelly leaves, the best thing Trump could do is Quite.   Kelly is a tough guy, and if he decides he can't take Trump's crap, then that will be very telling

Yup, it's Donnie Two Scoops. And Jr is Half-Scoop.

Welcome to the club, General Kelly.
 
2017-09-02 12:38:37 PM  
All I got from that article was a signal to the rest of the press that if you get a White House leak via Panetta, it's trustworthy.
 
2017-09-02 12:39:03 PM  

you are a puppet: Kelly should just poison Trumps wine, or ice cream or w.e, then if accused he can demand a trial by combat. Who will fight him for The Trumps? Jared?


Eric Trump.

2017-09-02 12:42:25 PM  
the president has still bridled at what he perceives as being told what to do.

I know people like that. Self-described "libertarians". Acting like a spoiled three year old is a point of pride and they see themselves as resolute men of action.

They'd have to rename the app Gold to make it worthy of his attention.

After Trump dies Eric will be sent to Vegas to be protected by Moe Greene in return for the Trump Foundation bankrupting his casinos.

Sorry that should've been bankrolling.
