Kelly hacked by Trump

Gen. John Kelly was just hacked. Not by Russian trolls, but by President Donald Trump’s pernicious and voracious need to be vindicated. It was a disappointing turn of events to see a Marine-turned-chief-of-staff take the White House podium and complete his transformation from the adult in the room to a political attack dog.

This new role serves neither his boss nor the nation well.

It was a stunning development in what already had become a vulgar couple of days; a sacrosanct ceremonial act —the president calling the families of fallen soldiers to express his deepest sympathies — had turned into a series of insults and accusations, started by President Trump, himself.

Gen. Kelly’s comments in a vacuum were not off target. His frustration regarding the disgusting state of our civil discourse is shared by most Americans — and the rest of the world. Many would also agree that things that used to be sacred no longer are — women, religion, Gold-Star families.

But what was so jaw-dropping about Kelly’s comments was that they were not made in a vacuum. They were made from the press room of a White House whose current occupant was the perpetrator of the vile actions that violently stripped the sacredness out of the very things — and people — Kelly was talking about.
