General John Kelly silenced the fake news media with this epic takedown

The anti-Trump media generated another fake outrage scandal.

They ran with the word of a loony tunes Democrat Congresswoman to claim Donald Trump disrespected a Gold Star widow.

But General John Kelly shut down the fake news media with one epic takedown.

General Kelly appeared in the White House briefing to rebut charges Trump is insensitive to the families of fallen soldiers.

The latest “get Trump” controversy arose when Frederica Wilson (D-FL) claimed she listened on a conversation between Trump and Myeshia Johnson – the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson who was one of four U.S. soldiers killed in an ambush in Niger.



Wilson claimed Trump was insensitive and the media ran with the story and used the dead soldier to try and score cheap political points against Trump.

Kelly stood behind the podium in the briefing room and lamented the fact that the Congresswoman politicized a call she never should have been listening in on and described in agonizing detail what happens when a soldier falls in combat and how the family is notified.





Kelly’s son was killed in Afghanistan and he recounted his own experiences in dealing with the grief and how his family was notified.

He informed the media that he recommended Donald Trump not make the calls to families of fallen service members as the calls they appreciate the most come from the band of brothers they served with.

It was a stirring moment that silenced the White House press room – and hopefully shamed the assembled reporters as well.

CNN spent two days reveling in the grief of Gold Star families as they brought on parents or loved ones of fallen soldiers and exploited their loss to feed their Trump hating narrative.

But after General Kelly’s performance they will have to mothball this tactic and take a crack at something else.

  1. Just for fun, let’s do a little contrast and comparison. When the truth came out about President Trump’s call we found out that the story was a lie. But does anybody remember the short story concerning obama just after he took office. Allow me to refresh your memories….
    Just after talking office obama wanted to get rid of health care for the military, and miliyary personell should pay whatever it cost for their own insurance, obama felt that they knew what they were getting into when they signed up. Obama was advised against pushing the issue so the story died.
    Now enter Trump, he’s not pc or perfect, but I really like what he has done.

    • It was more a matter if you were going to rag on me for my point of view, you should be big enough to get slammed for your shortcomings.

      I don’t know for sure that he has no empathy but if he did he wouldn’t have conned all those people with his university, or cheated on his wife, of called out the Kahn gold star family, or said what he did about McCain as a POW, or on and on and on. When has he ever done anything in public that showed empathy toward anyone other than himself?

      • What Trump says is not as important as what he does. Thank him for improving our economy, tax system, etc. and put away the hate button. When you hate someone, you will not be happy. It eats at you every day, so your best bet is to throw it out and start being a nice guy instead.

  5. As always the democrats lie thru their teeth like the media, phonywood, blow me lgbt and the nfl “Kneegers”. Try working for the real Americans who do not deserve your crap, uc,,t

    • Has to be. You’re just to stubborn to recognize it. By the way, ever hear of spellcheck or proof reading? Might make you sound more intelligent.

  6. Not quite sure how an elected sitting member of either house of Congress would be able to Legally tap into such a personal call from POTUS to the family of a fallen military member (or why for that matter) and then admit to doing so? And then try to disparage such a call?

    I do remember a very compassionate 3 or 4 part story by a Rocky Mountain Times reporter (with photos) of the respectful and compassionate Marine CAO (Casualty Assistance Officer) and how he broke the news of their fallen family member to four families: Widow, Parents. And how he and the Marine Corps took care of their needs in the succeeding days till their burial with military honors. I believe this was during Pres. G.W. Bushes 2nd term. The Rocky Mountain Times has since stopped being published, but I think their archives are still available.

    As a Navy Veteran, I stand proud of the Corps CAO’s and their sensitivity for their fallen brothers & sisters. Hopefully, other arms of our military perform that duty in a very similar manner. Would that All members of Congress would show the same standard of respect & compassion!

  7. You would be right if he had quit before going after the Congresswoman. I will give the president the benefit of the doubt. He has no empathy for anyone so his tone of voice very well would have betrayed his intention.
    The fact that a close old friend of the family who knew the slain soldier personally was in the car at the time the call was received should not have been a problem for anyone. People in congress don’t lose their friends just because they go to congress. Then he came back and told the story about the congresswoman which turned out to be blatantly false and there was videotape to prove it.

    I feel bad for Kelly. Here is a man with great honor and position who seems to have been poisoned by working in this White House. If Trump could just let something slide once in a while, he would stop most of this grief that he heaps upon himself.

  8. It is hard to believe a congresswoman will make such comments making our president look bad just like other leftist cronnies. How in…did she got elected. JAICO

  9. like always , they push their agenda and don’t care about people , then they call trump cold hearted , yet when that guy was beheaded by isis , and it interrupted obomas golf game he took about 2 minutes and ran back to the course

  10. Every person knows when enlist there is a chance you get killed in the line of duty. That is just the way it is. You don’t know if you’ll get back home safe when you leave for work. Only the good Lord knows that.

    • The very same way ANY of the lying politicians do – -make their constituents ALL kinds of promises and, then, once they are elected and get to DC, proceed to do any damnable thing they want to do, believing no one will ever be the wiser. Thank God we have internet and video and we don’t have to depend on the lamestream media propaganda machine for ANYTHING at all!

  11. These people on the left are very dangerous. They will lie without a conscious. America is watching a group of people who are very dangerous to our way of life show who they really are. Beware of these vermin.

  12. Just another swamp denizen trying to get rid of Trump before he drains the swamp and exposes them for what they really are. The louder they yell shows how close he is getting to exposing them and their cronies.

  13. We listened to Kelly speak and it was heart wrenching. If youcan watch it. He takes you on a journey of what the do with a fallen soldier from beginning to the time they are with their family. We are Vietnam vets and we now know how it goes for a soldier when He is killed. Kelly spoke from the heart and I am sure made many cry. For this woman to say what she did about Kelly and Trump is as low as you go. Then she calls Kelly a racist. Now that’s calling the kettle black. It is people like this witch woman who ARE THE BIGGEST RACISTS TO EVER LIVE. SHE EVEN SAID SHE FELT LIKE A ROCK STAR WITH ALL THE ATTENTION AND SMILING THE WHOLE TIME. Now that is disrespect to the family that lost their children. You are just like Maxine and you both are heartless bitches at the expense of suffering people. Karma has a way of showing up. You got your more than 15 minutes of fame and I hope it chokes you. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND ALL OF OUR MILITARY AND THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA WHO TRULY LOVE AMERICA FOR WHAT SHE HAS ALWAYS BEEN.

  14. I’m quite sure that Pres. Trump didn’t act nearly as callous as she made it out to be. Clearly a case of them scrounging desperately to throw Trump into a bad light on every issue he is presented with. In their eyes, he’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. Now, what would happen if we found out she didn’t even have a son who was killed, but she was just another Trump-hater, or paid by Soros to create an ugly scene? Do you think there would be a retraction and apology from the media? Not on your life!!

  15. THANKU CAPT TIGER..THIS WOMAN THINKS VERY HIGHLY OF HERSELF.SHE LOOKS LIKE SOMETHING I THREW BASEBALLS AT IN A CARNIVAL TRYING TO WIN A PRIZE.OBVIOUSLT SHE OWNS NOT ONE SINGLE MIRROR..THIS BOZO HAS MADE A COMPLETE ASS OF HERSELF AND YET THINKS SHE IS A ROCK STAR?ANOTHER USELESS PIECE OF SH@T THAT HAS NO BUSINESS BEING IN CHARGE OF ANYTHING!!

  16. I am an Army Combat Support nurse since 1988, served in two wars. When the Sgt signed me on, after a rigarous physical for all of the nurses, he told me straight, you most likely will go to war and you could be in danger or killed. I signed on regardless, as millions have done.

    Again another Floridian representative, like Corrine Brown, flaunts her stuff and goes after Trump and she lied, she out and out lied, military understood that what she said was bastardized by her. Now she considers herself a Rock Star, you betcha sister, someone that people want to throw rocks at until you see stars.

    To boot she is no friend to Veterans, she should have thought about her lousy record on that before opening that big trap. How long before this one is thrown out, took way to many years to rid us of Brown.
