Twitter Blows Up Over John Kelly’s White House Press Briefing on Fallen Soldiers

To hopefully top off what has been an uncomfortably politicized issue surrounding honoring fallen soldiers, White House Chief Of Staff John Kelly took to the podium at the White House press briefing today to share his feelings and to defend President Donald Trump’s comments.

Over the course of the briefing, Kelly claimed that he was “stunned” and “broken-hearted” after he learned that Congresswoman Frederica Wilson was listening in while Trump’s called the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson.

“Blue Check Twitter” from all-sides chimed in on this. Reactions ranged all the way from near-contempt for Kelly to glowing praise of Kelly’s emotional briefing.
