Brian Kilmeade Quizzes John Kelly on HS Teacher Who Slammed Military: ‘Ought to Go to Hell’

Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade had the incredible opportunity to interview John Kelly on his radio show Wednesday, and asked the White House chief of staff for his thoughts…on a random high school teacher in California who criticized the military.

Gregory Salcido, a teacher at El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera, was recently caught on camera deriding the military to his students in an expletive-laced rant.

Kilmeade decided to quiz retired Marine Corps general Kelly about the high school teacher’s remarks, and Kelly did not hold back.

“I think the guy ought to go to hell,” Kelly replied. “I just hope he enjoys the liberties and the lifestyle that we have fought for.”

Kilmeade played a clip of the comments on Fox & Friends Thursday, noting that Kelly went on “to say some expletives we had to dump.”

“But he was really angry.”

Salcido went on the tear against the U.S. military after apparently spotting one of his students wearing a Marine Corps hoodie.

“We’ve got a bunch of dumb shits over there,” Salcido said. “Think about the people you know who are over there. Your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumb shits. They’re not high-level thinkers, they’re not academic people, they’re not intellectual people. They’re the lowest of our low.”

Salcido went on to make some pretty offensive remarks about the Vietnamese (“a bunch of people this freaking big throwing rice at us.”) He has since been suspended.
