Chief of Staff John Kelly Hits Back Hard Against Democrat Congressman Who Called Him A “Disgrace To The Uniform”
After a congressman called John Kelly honorless and a “disgrace to the uniform,”, the the Chief of Staff of President Trump’s White House stroke back, and he did it very gracefully.
As the news broke out that the Trump administration might be thinking of pulling back Obama’s DACA executive order, representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) made some distasteful comments.
The DACA executive order serve as a grant for amnesty to the children of illegal immigrants. Obama used the order, after he was unable to persuade Congress to pass the same legislation. Even though, he announced on multiple occasions that he didn’t have the constitutional power to do this, Obama used his position to carry it out anyway.
Apart from criticizing President Trump, Gutierrez also turned to General Kelly, a dedicated servant to the American people.
As reported from the Washington Examiner, the President Chief of staff, sat down with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and guaranteed to them that he would do everything in his power to salvage DACA.
But, as soon as the White House revealed that DACA was expected to be repealed, Congressman Gutierrez said: “General Kelly is a hypocrite who is a disgrace to the uniform he used to wear. He has no honor and should be drummed out of the White House along with the white supremacists and those enabling the President’s actions by ‘just following orders.’”
He also blamed General Kelly for not backing up John McCain when President Trump made some defamatory comments about him. He referred to a comment that the President made during his campaign while in Iowa when he said that John McCain was named a war hero only because of his captivity by the North Vietnamese. The President added that he liked people who weren’t captured.
Despite the fact that General Kelly found himself in a the Democrat Party’s dirty tactics he didn’t fall for their provocations and instead he released a statement that made the Illinois congressman get back on earth.
Kelly said :“As far as the congressman and other irresponsible members of congress [sic] are concerned, they have the luxury of saying what they want as they do nothing and have almost no responsibility.”
What he basically said was that Congress does nothing for Americans, however, they do an awful lot for the Washington DC lobbyists.
For instance, Obamacare, served insurance companies very well because it ordered Americans to buy their products, unless face a penalty. However, millions of Americans found themselves without doctors, plans and their full-time status at their jobs. And on top of everything, many people couldn’t even afford insurance.
Despite the results from polls which suggested that the majority of Americans never wanted Obamacare, the Democratic Congress authorized the legislation and when they had the chance, the Republican Congress refused to repeal it.
John Kelly also said in his statement for Congress: “They can call people liars but it would be inappropriate for me to say the same thing back at them. As my blessed mother used to say ’empty barrels make the most noise.’ The congressman has a right to his opinion.”
