This is where the mainstream Democratic Party is now at with their public discourse in regards to the President of the United States. Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson said it “would be embarrassing” to be seen with the leader of our nation. Very disturbing, as a representative she should hear what the President has to say, even if she disagrees with every word of it. I would expect the same of a Republican Representative with a Democrat President in office. #fredericawilson#miami#congresswoman#florida#dadecounty#305
"#JohnKelly is the perfect #donaldtrump staffer — he’s a #badperson who is bad at his job.
While this might seem like a harsh judgment, consider the evidence.
This week, the White House has been embroiled in controversy, largely of Kelly’s own making, over the handling of staff secretary #RobPorter’s tenure inside the administration.Kelly had known for months that Porter had been credibly accused of #abusing both of his former wives and had been denied a permanent security clearance because of the allegations. Yet that didn’t stop Kelly from keeping Porter on and actually praising him, earlier this week, as “a man of true integrity and honor” when the allegations surfaced. Kelly even urged Porter not to resign. Kelly only changed his tune after pictures emerged of Porter’s first wife with a black eye.
This is hardly the first time that Kelly, in his mere six and half months as chief of staff, has done and said bad things. In the fall, Kelly slandered congresswoman #FredericaWilson with an accusation of publicly grandstanding at an event opening a federal office building in Miami in 2015. When confronted with evidence that his claims against Wilson were untrue, Kelly said he would never apologize for his comments. He referred to a traitorous Confederate general, Robert E. Lee, as an “honorable” man, and, echoing his boss’s language about neo-Nazis who marched this summer in Charlottesville, Va., said, about a civil war fought over slavery, “men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had them make their stand.” Just this week, he attacked so-called #Dreamers who had failed to register for the #DACA program as being “#toolazytogetofftheirasses ”
From a policy standpoint, Kelly, as secretary of #HomelandSecurity, was the point man for both the Trump administration’s so-called #Muslimban and its increasingly cruel and sadistic efforts to deport law-abiding undocumented immigrants. Under his short tenure at DHS, there was a 40 percent increase in deportation arrests." ~ #BostonGlobe
