General Kelly Has Left the Building

He's been watching the fake news saying he's on vacation, and not liking it.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.


Blumenthal appeared on CNN less than an hour after Trump’s encore jab, and responded to it by promoting legislation meant to shield Mueller from being fired by Trump.


“I have no idea about what is in his mind,” Blumenthal said, asked about the personal nature of Trump’s attacks. “What I do know is I will not be distracted by this bullying. And these bullying tweets reinforce, for me, the need for a piece of legislation that I am helping to lead with Thom Tillis and others, a bipartisan coalition, to prevent firing of the special counsel, Robert Mueller, whom he has also sought to intimidate.”


Trump’s attacks are based on Blumenthal’s fudging of his service record during the Vietnam War, for which he apologized years ago. Blumenthal had said he served “in” Vietnam during the war. In fact, he served stateside and never went to Vietnam as a member of the military.

Exceptionally stupid to try to pass that off. He may have said it in a manner to seem like he was in Viet Name, using the country's name to denote the war.  I don't know.  I don't care.  He shouldn't have even brought it up.  Trump, however, didn't serve at all.
