    I thought a term like "empty barrel" would be calling someone stupid
    but het with the Dems everything is racism its getting to the point where nothing is racism
    that is the Dems only response to everything racism
    it is sick and disturbing that they can no longer argue in the area of ideas and have to resort to petty name calling and identity politics

    I don't think anyone thinks he's :censored:.
    Only that he has made a piss poor decision to take a job defending Trump.

    Which when it comes down to it calls into question his decision making skills.:idunno:

    Fredricka Wilson called him a :censored:
    Neil O Donnell called him a :censored:
    the talking heads at MSNBC called him a :censored:

    hey he is a Gold Star father, I thought they were immune to attack, remember the guy that attack Trump from the stage of the Dem convention and Trump shot back, the left was outraged and up in arms, well.........

    I didn't hear any of them say that.
    Kelly took the role to become Trumps attack dog.
    That job promp's people to bite back.
    Kelly lost his aura.

    When they can’t win an argument the good old standby is to scream racism. It’s the democrats war cry.

    Fredricka got what she wanted, shes a "rockstar" her words
    she got some nice publicity for her re-election (like in her district it mattered) attacking a Gold Star family, how low can you go
    Kelly is right nothing is sacred

    The Latest: Trump calls Florida Rep. Wilson 'wacky'

    What should a President have done?
    Trump should have made a brief apology to the widow and family explaining how awful he is doing such duties.
    Thats it and say no more.
    But Trump always takes everything as a huge attack on his thin skin.
    What did he think that job was like?

    Trump said the same thing he told the other families when he called them
    they spun it out of context for political gain
    seriously, WTF has their congress person listen into a personal conversation between the president and the widow of a fallen warrior
    what kind of crap is that?

    If you watched General Kelly do his press conference he said he told Trump to say what these folks claimed he said.

    Kelly confirmed it right on tv.
    If you only seen clips of his talk then you may have missed it.
    Kelly in a very passionate talk spoke of these soldiers joining the military and loving what they do, loving their fellow soldiers as best friends and wanting to be there with them. This can only come from someone like Kelly a lifelong military man whose family was raised the same way. Having lost one son in war and the other on his 5th deployment. Trump asked Kelly 'what should I say to them?" Kelly siad these men were doing what they wanted to do .

    Kelly is able to carry that off, Trump can not and Kelly said he told Trump not to make the calls.
    So this business about I didn't say that stops right there.
    Trump is lying and just trying to defend himself.
    And Kelly having to stick up for Trump just drags Kelly down to Trumps level.

    I heard the entire press conference
    amazing how 3 families took it fine, yet one with her congress person listening in found it offensive
    also, where was the coverage about all the people Trump visisted in the hospital in Las Vegas, there were some really great stories there

    See Trump cannot be shown as human or compassionate because that destroys the narrative that he is a cold blooded monster, which he is not

    To add insult to injury, Trump was wearing a cotton suit when he made the call. The horror, oh the horror.

    I agree when they call someone a :censored: after that person calls them out on something it usually means they don't have a defense For that argument.
    What happened to not attacking gold star families ? Or does that only apply to gold star families campaigning for Hitlery?

    I prefer that he make his point much clearer next time then.
    Maybe something like "she's a stupid bitch with nothing between her ears".

    Trump asked for Kelly's advice on what to say. What's wrong with that?
    Maybe Trump should have been like the Muslim narcissist who just left the White House and either not make the call at all, or just wing it as though he knows everything.

    You'd whine either way.

    Yep. No coincidence there. All of the families happily excepted his condolences......except for the one who happened to have their Congresswoman nearby.
    That ho is a hack.

    Yep. When I'm called a :censored:, that means that I'm winning the debate because they want me shut down. But that ain't going to happen, being called a :censored: actually encourages me to continue on.

    We warned the left years ago, that calling everyone a :censored: for every little thing will run it's course and become irrelevant, and that's where we're at today.

    Listen to the POS yourself.
    "I'm a rockstar now", as she laughs about her five minutes of fame.......as though her stardom supersedes the death of the fallen heroes.

    I like General Kelly, but I think he's between a rock and a hard place ...trying to remain a man of integrity and trying to defend an idiot like Trump.

    For some reason Generals are liked. Maybe it's more of we respect them. I don't recall an unliked General.
