General Kelly Was a Marine and Gold Star Father and His Son Was an Honored Hero. Now Kelly is Just Another Hired Trump Liar. It Would Take Shakespeare to Unpack this Tragedy.
It’s a bad day for America when a Marine General lies about a black woman congressperson to protect a white supremacist abuser of women.
A few of my recent thoughts I Tweeted sum up where the Trump/Kelly Fiasco is going …
As the proud father of a Marine I say Kelly’s wrong. Military service doesn’t make one better than non-military like MLK, Lincoln, Rosa Parks.
Kelly’s choice to enable Trump disproves Kelly’s claim that military people are the best. Kelly’s military and he’s covering for a pervert.
Trump transformed General Kelly’s real loss into a loud crass fake crises in service of insatiable irrational Obama-hating self-pitying ego.
Kelly can’t shield himself from criticism for involving the sacred memory of his son in a political fight. Suffering doesn’t justify folly.
Kelly’s stupidity in lying for Trump proves that in fact military people aren’t always “our best.” This week Kelly certainly wasn’t.
America’s civil-military divide is a deadly problem. Kelly made it worse. Lying for Trump is no way to garner support for our men and women.
Trump & Kelly just made shared grief over military losses into yet another partisan litmus test and eroded respect for our military family.
Trump & Kelly have done more in one week to politicize and thus erode support for our military than any other administration since Vietnam.
Before Trump, Gen Kelly was a Marine & gold star father: Now he’s just another Trump Liar. Work for T & lose your dignity reputation and soul…
