A 71 year old man who needs a military general to manage his Twitter account.

Have you met my new handler?
Courtesy of Newsweek: 

John Kelly is a former United States Marine Corps general who has had multiple deployments in the battlefields of Iraq. However, he may have just embarked on his toughest assignment yet: controlling the Twitter habits and impulsive decision-making of a 71-year-old man. 

Formerly the secretary of Homeland Security, last week Kelly was appointed as President Donald Trump's new chief of staff, replacing Reince Priebus. But any notion that this might be a comfortable posting for a man more familiar with war zones than war rooms was quickly dispelled, according to Leon Panetta, a chief of staff to President Bill Clinton and a friend of Kelly’s who has spoken with him this week.

“He knows the problems. He knows how difficult it’s going to be,” Panetta told The Washington Post Friday. “It’s like being dropped into the middle of a combat zone.”

Perhaps the most troubling part of this article is how it describes that way in which Trump's advisers keep him interested in daily briefings. 

According to the Post, one major problem Kelly has identified as being in need of fixing is the way Trump makes decisions on important issues. Kelly has already assumed control of managing the paperwork and advice that reaches Trump’s desk.

The way Trump consumes advice and intelligence is a stark departure from previous incumbents of the Oval Office. Hampered by the president’s notoriously short attention span, National Security Council officials have resorted to tactics such as inserting Trump’s name into as many paragraphs as possible because reading his own name is one way to maintain his interest.

That's right this vastly unqualified piece of human excrement is such a megalomaniac that the only way to hold his interest in a topic is to insert his name as many times as possible within the documents.  

That is fucking pathetic!

At 71 this man has to be directed in how to use his social media account, has spokespeople constantly at the ready to walk back or cover up for stupid things he says to the media, and can only comprehend documents to protect our national security if they contain his name in every other paragraph.

If you voted for this pathetic excuse for a president you should voluntarily remove your name from your local voter rolls as soon as possible, as you are unfit to participate in our democracy.

    The next time Trump wants to beat the biggest electorial defeat drum, we must remind him a black man did better than Trump, and did it two times. So what's Trump bragging about again?

      Hah! Like Trump cares if it is true! How do you think KellyAnne came up with the term Alternative Facts?

  2. Anonymous11:50 AM

    I cannot believe how they are 'catering' to the fucking asshole in the White House! It's ridiculous and follows right into his ineptness and not being in any way, shape or form qualified for the position!

    People throughout the world have to laughing at us. He will never be reelected for a second term and I have serious doubts he's going to make it through his first.

    Impeaching is the only answer, Republicans in Congress. Stop supporting Trump. You guys are going down in Congress when you come up for reelection. The majority of Americans are not supporting him or those of you in Congress! Your ratings are horrid!

    Unbelievable to watch this new history of America being made! Frightening as Hell!

      If he can keep the US out of another war!

    71 year old man needs a 67 year old military general to manage the West Wing of the White House, the office of the President of the United States of America and the 71 year old's Twitter account.

    John Francis Kelly is the current White House Chief of Staff for US President Donald Trump, previously serving as US Secretary of Homeland Security in the same administration. Kelly is age 67.

    Who replaced Kelly as US Secretary of Homeland Security? If not, why not? How secure is it to have no official lasting US Secretary of Homeland Security? How long should that position be vacant?

    Kelly may have bit off more than he can chew and not all of his maneuvers are good for the country.

    Unfortunately, we only hear from the officials the propaganda they want us to hear.

    We must have leakers that can get to the truth.

    Not leakers that give up top secret info. Leakers that can speak to the dark side of an administration that is chin deep in Russian intelligence and election mess.

      Trump is the one who should be watching his back around Mike Pence

      Maxine Waters explained Sunday why she believes the president is so vulnerable at the moment.
      "If the people around you are leaking in the way that they're doing, they are trying to tell us something. Of course, we don't want classified information leaked out and I don't think that they would do that with a credible president. They're doing that to this president because he has defined himself as someone who cannot be trusted," she said.
      And she said she knew where to start on national security leaks "The first thing they need to do is start with the president,” Waters said.

      “The president gave classified information to Russians in the White House and our ally Israel was very upset with us, so start with him.”

      I have come to believe that there are leaks because many people are astonished to horrified about what Trump does and does not do within his role as POTUS. I tend to read the leaks as information to warn others what goes on inside what Trump called 'a dump".

    3. Anonymous3:31 AM

      I agree with Anons at 2:09 pm and 2:39 pm. And I don't think that current leaking has been about classified material. I think the leaking has had to do with the lack of process and organization in the White House. It mostly informs us that the people working there (from Trump down) don't have a clue about how to do anything related to governing). This is important for the public to know but it's not "classified" information. It's coming from a person or persons who have some shred of concern about the country - or at least I hope so. I certainly hope it's not someone who simply wants to replace Trump with Pence.

  6. I am glad to not have a child in school...any school. I am glad to not be a teacher because I would not be able to hide my disgust. I am lastly glad to not be a parent of school age children.... I am back to square one watching my grandma go into the closet with her rosary during a storm..WTF. We are on our own.

    71 year old Ken Starr memo suggests a sitting president could be indicted — here's what it could mean for Trump

    Every bonafided American be sure to tell Congress "You're fired" when they don't work for the people.

    If you're not a deep thinker, just know that Trump has the Electoral College vote. Whether you like it or not the institution is out dated and can do more harm than good. Donald Trump did not win the people, he does not have the vote of we the people. Donald Trump does not have a mandate. He has backers like Vladimir Putin and Steve Bannon. That is why you see so much of their agendas.

    If you see something say something, yet no one can do anything about all the signs from the 71 year old Donald Trump when he exhibits severe health concerns, including mental, emotional and physical.

    He now has a Marine Corps general to watch him, his communications and his management style, but no one can really say the things that they see.

    "if he (president) cannot be prosecuted for violating the criminal laws, he will be above the law."

    The 56-page memo, locked in the National Archives for nearly two decades and obtained by The New York Times under the Freedom of Information Act, amounts to the most thorough government-commissioned analysis rejecting a generally held view that presidents are immune from prosecution while in office.

    Get busy, tell congress they are fired if they don't hear the people and act according.

    1. Friday night on Bill Maher, Al Gore suggested getting rid of the electoral college as one step in cleaning up our electoral system. Getting lobbyists and big money out was another. (That would mean getting rid of Citizen's United.)

    Gles-- My mother did that too! The rosary-in-closet-during-storm thing. Except she would drag me and my sister in with her.

    She also loved both Sarah Palin and Trump, God rest her soul.

    Meanwhile, God help the rest of us.

    1:07 PM - I agree. Just like Trump, Mitch McConnell is a one-trick pony. All we have ever heard out of Mr. Turtle from Kentucky for the last 7 years is "Repeal Obamacare!" Other than that, that clown offers nothing for USA citizens.

    1. Not the only thing. Two things.

      The other being stealing the Supreme Court seat from Merrick Gardner and handing it to Neil Gorsucks.

      All that crap about letting the people decide.

      I think Trump should be blocked from any nominations whatsoever after January 1 of 2019. Let the people decide. If Obama could be stonewalled for one year, I think Trump should be for two years. He'll be a "lame duck" after the 2018 elections.

      I hope Ginsburg and Kennedy can last that long.

    Non uber wealthy folks who vote R(against their self interest) can't separate out the propaganda coming from the uber wealthy republicans and corporations from reality. There are multiple reasons for this. None of those reasons bodes well for the future of this country. What is boils down to is we have a very large voting bloc of folks who vote against the interests of themselves and the vast majority of citizens. They will never wake up to the fact that they are being bamboozled. That would require intelligence. Their stupidity is permanent.

    I predicted that Trump would make many bad decisions because of his personality type. People like Trump do not have logic and reasoning abilities based in pertinent factual reality to be capable of rational decision making.

    One problem is a delusional belief they are always right. Twitter is an easy example of Trump incriminating his self under his false belief he is modern and does not need well thought out statements nor to follow protocols or laws. He goes off impulsively as if he is a King in a screwball fairy tale story.

    Maybe they could make little donnie read the briefings if they took them down to his level.

    For instance writing them in crayon, however they will have to spring for the big box so they can get the gold color.

    1. I am beginning to wonder if Trump is not on the autism spectrum. And I mean perhaps highly functioning but unable to handle the pressure of decision making.....because he sure doesn't seem to be able to switch channels in his thinking. No wonder his parents sent him to military school....what to do with someone like that so many years ago.

    2. More like getting the White House staff to act them out, recording them and then playing it back on TV.

    How General Kelly Is Shaking Up The Trump White House. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has made one thing clear—he’s not taking staff leaks lying down. The former Department of Homeland Security head gave a speech to White House staff on Friday, in which he warned them about the very serious consequences ahead for anyone caught leaking internal information.

    1. Anonymous3:24 AM

      There may be a point in time when White House leaks would become the most patriotic thing a White House employee could do. For example, if a White House employee realized that US policy was literally being forcibly dictated by a foreign power or that the US Constitution was to be repealed/replaced by secret presidential edict and the only possible way to prevent such things was to leak details to the press, would former US Marine general Kelly punish the brave citizen who leaked the information? One would hope that Kelly has the intellectual capacity to make value judgments. But, given the tenor of the times and the fact that Kelly is willing to work for Trump, one doubts it.

    ‘The Tougher The Better’

    WASHINGTON — Barack Obama and Bill Clinton had Martha’s Vineyard, George W. Bush had his ranch in Crawford, Texas, George H.W. Bush had Kennebunkport, Maine, and Ronald Reagan had his getaway in California. President Donald Trump, it seems, has his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

    White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks April Ryan literally burst out laughing on Sunday when CNN’s Ana Cabrera said rumors are flying that President Donald Trump might make aide Stephen Miller the new White House communications director.
