Trump Throws John Kelly’s Wife Under The Bus In Retaliation For Kelly ‘Not Keeping His Mouth Shut’
In a raging tweet Thursday morning, President Donald Trump attacked his former White House chief of staff John Kelly — and dragged his wife into the mix — after the retired Marine Corps general criticized his actions toward Ukraine.
Trump ripped Kelly for siding with Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who testified against the president in the impeachment inquiry.
“When I terminated John Kelly, which I couldn’t do fast enough, he knew full well that he was way over his head,” Trump tweeted. “Being Chief of Staff just wasn’t for him. He came in with a bang, went out with a whimper, but like so many X’s, he misses the action & just can’t keep his mouth shut, which he actually has a military and legal obligation to do.”
The angry president then dragged Kelly’s wife into his attack.
“His incredible wife, Karen, who I have a lot of respect for,” Trump tweeted, “once pulled me aside & said strongly that ‘John respects you greatly. When we are no longer here, he will only speak well of you.’ Wrong!”
