Are The Nation’s Grow-ups Using General Kelly To Protect Us From The Trump Nuthouse?

It has been said that the easiest person to con is another con. Perhaps this is because cons have absolutely no sense of the truth. There’re all bullshit salesmen. So this brings us to General Kelly who by all accounts is nothing like Trump.

Yet it has been said that Trump and Kelly have become really chummy over recent months. To me this means only one thing: the grown-ups are using Kelly to play the Donald. The period between now and when special counsel Robert Mueller makes his case for the impeachment of Trump is fraught with danger.

Indeed, Trump grows more psychotic by the day. He is like a rat trapped in a corner as his political capital melts away by the minute. He may even reach a suicidal state whereby in his rage and mental imbalance he decides to take out the world along with his own life. So perhaps by kissing up to the Donald, Kelly can wrap his arms around Mr. Mayhem and keep him from killing us all.
