    Honestly, Kelly knew what he was signing up for, endured it for this long and still carried on until the new year. That man is a first-class patriot.

    Honestly, anyone who put their hand up to serve Trump has no defense. They knew the animal they were bedding down with well before they agreed to their roles. Kelly displayed an utter lack of smarts in joining Trump and must, like the rest of this miserable band of sycophants , be consigned to the S Bend of American History. Flynn, Bannon, Tillerson, Sessions, Pence, Reibus, Sanders, The Mooch and on, and on it goes

    Is it possible that Kelly was waiting for a phone call from Mueller to tell him that he wasn't under investigation as a possible accessory to any of Trump's multiple felonies?

    Kelly is a bully a bigot and a proven liar. He is Trump but smoother. Watching Trump humiliate him was awesome.

    I am surprised that it took Kelly as long as it did to realize that the trumpster was as much of an idiot as they told him donnie was.

    Given the constant WH chaos, the infighting, the tweeting, the insane foreign policy, the insane domestic policies, the pending government shutdown (that Dump now owns) and the inevitable subpoenas (and personal legal problems that may stem from them) ... who would possibly want this job? Anyone who would want it would have to be certifiably insane.

  • Trumpty Dumpty your fall is coming!

    Faux News has some great candidates for you Donnie! Bye, bye to the complicit General - ruined your career to promote racism, xenophobia and hatred. We won't miss you! Slither away now.

    Do not forget that by being to serve in Trump's administration at a senior level Kelly indicates support for all the stupidity, racism, willful ignorance, and lawlessness that Trump represents.

      @Jey Cps.... Hi! I know NOTHING about politics or Kelly.... I'm just ASSUMING with his background - training, leading, fighting, etc...that it would provide him enough experience to weather the WH...I guess not.

    …. General Kelly, it must be really TIRING to take care of a uneducated orange ape-like toddler. In each pictures, you looked like you might need a ton of coffee to drink for the rest of your life after that.

    A great reputation, a stellar military career, a Gold Star father, yet Kelly will be remembered primarily for his time serving Trump. Look forward to reading his book when he writes it. Trump has already called it Deep State lies.

    • Diane d'Lune
      Diane d'Lune 10 months ago +2

      A previously great reputation, that is. He exposed a devastatingly ugly underbelly while serving Trump. He will need to write that book to explain away that ugliness. If he can.

    It was, after a seemingly endless dearth, with great pleasure that the woman who has always announced, "It's the Late Show with Stephen Colbert!!" did not have her voice faded out by the sound editor, so that I could listen tonight to the full panoply of her vocalization at least for this one last time! For a while there, I thought that you guys were fading her off into oblivion, to leave her living destitute on the mean streets of New York City. As for myself, I hope to hear her exclamation, in full completion, every single time I watch the show. Thank you very much.

    What's going on with Trump and all these firings? Is he, somehow, operating under the impression that if he fires enough people, it will improve his approval rating?

    • oscargordon
      oscargordon 10 months ago +1

      Quite simply they are all superfluous. He already knows more than all of these people and doesn't need their help or input on anything. If they suggest anything he will automatically disagree with them because if he agrees with them that means they were right before he was and he can't have that.

    It doesn't matter who you are, if you are a 4 stars general or an ordinary person like me, it only takes one person to break you and your soul to 1000 pieces. I didnt agree with Kelly' idea and policies but I can feel him. I have a boss who is a bully. I just joined the organisation 4 months ago but I have lost my confidence and I feel like a stupid person because of her. In my previous organisation I recieved CEO's recognition for my achievement and in this new organisation I feel like a nobody. I have decided to give my resignation and take a chance to be unemployed as I have lost my sleep over my job. I am sure I will have the same smile as Kelly's . A big thanks to Stephen Colbert as his videos are my comfort zone and he makes me laugh so hard which I need it now in my life.

      zkbf2000 - I hear you. I had to leave my job as the bullying culture from management was seriously affecting my mental health. And the senior management would do nothing because of the race issue. Couldn't take it any more. Horrific place to work and I busted my butt in that office for 6 years. Total nightmare. The minute you say to yourself "I'm better than this!" it's time to get the hell out, for the sake of your sanity if nothing else. All the best to you my friend. 👍
