Nice comic, Lorie.
Pretty much where clowns belong. Flushed down a sewer. Bye, clown. Don’t y’all come back, now, hear?
Exactly what is it that it does?
Step 6: Belch.

Gen. Kelley was referring to the sympathetic view that all soldiers enlist knowing that doing their duty may entail losing their lives, and we owe them respect for accepting that duty under those conditions.
trump was just pathetic, saying that the soldier knew what he was in for when he sighed up, implying that soldiers enlist knowing they’re gonna die, and – hey – that’s part of the deal, so live with it (so to speak) … and “I guess it hurt.”
But, jeeeeezzzzz, it’s so much work. I’d rather have someone tell me what I think. Who cares if it’s right?
While I agree with you, I think it helps to point out that the left has, by the nature of its actions, given plenty of reasons for the ignorant white working class to mistrust them. The left sets up the perfect windmill for the right-wing politicians to joust with.
There is a tendency for members of the progressive movement to take some matters to the extreme, instead of using common sense to tell themselves that there is a reasonable limit to political correctness, be it in policies, social ethics, business, or whatever. You can only expect people to follow you so far, especially when you’re asking them to go against their conception of the “right” way.
Unfortunately, the people who would reflect that demographic would either (a) be too ignorant to be president (I mean, look what they elected); or (b) smart enough to know that someone who doesn’t have lots of money will never be able to run a successful campaign.
There is a significant difference between the type of phone call Kelly talked about and the one trump gave. What Kelly doesn’t say is that trump is so ignorant, so brainless, so uneducated and so sociopathic, that he can’t really “wing it” when giving a sympathy call. trump doesn’t care, and never will.
Kelly also mentioned that Obama never called him, but what he didn’t mention (apparently) was that he attended an in-person meeting with Obama (and other Gold Star families) to convey his sympathy more personally.
Kelly is trying to set an example of how to effectively tell the truth without giving all the details. It is odious that he does this in service to the worst president in history, but it is the standard Washington way of dealing with uncomfortable situations.
Hey! Nothing says entertainment like watching guys give other guys brain damage! I’ll pay to see that!
