The Trumpification of John Kelly

The Trumpification of John Kellyā€¯

John Kelly on Thursday derided Rep. Frederica Wilson of Florida on Thursday as an " empty barrel", saying she had delivered a speech at an Federal Bureau of Investigation field office dedication in which she "talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building".

Ms Wilson said: "When [Ms Johnson] got off the phone, she said, 'He didn't even know his name". Wilson did not brag about getting money for the building (because she wasn't in Congress when the funds were allocated), and she didn't make the event all about herself. "When I took this job and talked to President Trump about how to do it, my first recommendation was he not do it", Kelly said.

On Friday, Wilson affirmed that she wasn't misinterpreting the president's choice of words.

While Wilson did not claim credit for helping to fund the building, she did spend about one-third of her speech dramatically recounting the four weeks she had to steer a bill through Congress and to the President's desk to name the building in the deceased Federal Bureau of Investigation agents' names after the Federal Bureau of Investigation asked for her help.

Sanders: If you want to get into a debate with a four-star Marine general, I think that's something highly inappropriate. "But I don't know if that was on the minds of Agents Grogan and Dove as they left their homes on April 11, 1986".

Incidentally, Parasakti was a film that was penned by DMK leader Karunanidhi, which had late Shivaji Ganesan in the lead role. Mohammed Riyas said: "We can not understand why the BJP is so antithetical to cinema dialogues critical of its government.

Despite Mr Trump's boast that he calls all or almost all military families when they lose a loved one, relatives of at least a half dozen people who died in military service since he became President have said they never got a call from him about their loss. She did not say whether that contact necessarily meant a phone call, or only a letter, and she did not not address the specifics of why families of some war dead have received neither. Rep. Frederica Wilson, a Florida Democrat who was with Johnson's family when Trump called to offer condolences, said Trump had told the widow that "you know that this could happen when you signed up for it... but it still hurts".

Wilson also recognized other members of Congress, including then-House Speaker John Boehner, for their key roles in helping to get the legislation quickly through Congress.

Please note: This is a commentary piece. "And the casualty officer proceeds to break the heart of a family member and stays with that family until, well for a long, long time, even after the internment", Kelly said.

In a statement to NBC News Friday, the White House defended Kelly.

Bethesda confirmed last month that Doom would be making its way to the Nintendo Switch . Bethesda has just announced the Doom Switch release date of November 10 .

The saga has since devolved into a political circus, with parties from all corners defending Trump in increasingly outlandish ways.

Kelly said the Defense Department is investigating the details of the October 4 ambush that killed four American soldiers, including Johnson, in Niger.

"I think I've called every family of someone who's died", Trump said, then adding, "virtually everybody". But Whipple pointed out that Kelly was "more ideologically driven" in his comments and "that is not what a good chief of staff is".

Kelly, whose frustration with the distractions created by Trump on other subjects led him to deny last week that he was considering quitting, also bemoaned how the nation no longer held things sacred, from life to religion to women. And he personally absolved Trump - who has frequently struggled showing empathy - of any blame in his call to the family of Sgt. But when asked if Trump had been in contact, she demurred, saying, "We will not speak ill of a president who adores his troops". "You don't say that to someone who lost family, the father, the breadwinner".
