Trump’s Former Chief of Staff Called POTUS the ‘Most Flawed Person’ in Private Conversation: Report

Trump’s former chief of staff called President Donald Trump the “most flawed person” he has ever met, according to a recent CNN report.

Former White House chief of staff, retired Marine Gen. John Kelly apparently told his friends, “The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature of every relationship, though it’s more pathetic than anything else.”

“He is the most flawed person I have ever met in my life,” Kelly added, according to friends.

Watch the video below:

The CNN reporting on Kelly’s remarks is part of a special scheduled to air on Sunday where some former Trump administration officials including former national security adviser John Bolton and former Health and Human Services scientist Rick Bright. They will share “why they think the President is unfit for office,” as CNN writes.

The report of Kelly’s comments is not a new criticism of his former boss. Kelly — who stepped down from his position as chief of staff in 2018 — previously agreed with former Secretary of Defense James Mattis’ criticism of Trump’s handling of protests following the death of George Floyd.

Kelly also previously said at that time, “I think we really need to step back. I think we need to look harder at who we elect.”

Trump has also blasted Kelly, previously tweeting, “John Kelly didn’t know I was going to fire James Mattis, nor did he have any knowledge of my asking for a letter of resignation. Why would I tell him, he was not in my inner-circle, was totally exhausted by the job, and in the end just slinked away into obscurity. They all want to come back for a piece of the limelight!”

  1. “What do you think Ed Mcguire is attempting to say?” Phyllis

    Beats me. I am confused, remember? That’s why I asked him. ed has to own up to his own thoughts. So far, there is only silence, from him, from anyone of whom we ask questions. I am forced to draw conclusions about them from that. They don’t know what they are talking about. They are robotic cult members who can’t think for themselves. They bullshit everyone, including themselves.

  2. “waiting until the election is close is the best time to spring this, when Trump doesn’t have time to bury it” Delbert

    I disagree. The time to call fascism out is always. The voters are already in their own corners, so waiting until now to bring up a problem is too late. Whose mind is he going to change NOW? Only something like <4% of the electorate who are even remotely going to vote are undecided. If they are still undecided as to whether they are going to vote for a fascist or not, what makes you think General Kelly could ever change their minds? It's a bit late for that, don't you think?

  3. If Kelly genuinely believes Trump is a threat to the country’s security and well-being, and he believes that he needs to be kicked out in the election, then waiting until the election is close is the best time to spring this, when Trump doesn’t have time to bury it.

    As far as partisanship goes, Trump has demonstrated that he has no time for non-partisan public servants, or any sense of honor that would get in the way of serving Trump.

  4. General, LOL…What do you think Ed Mcguire is attempting to say? WHAT do Trump supporters always say when anyone working with Trump expresses their observation? Trump is the victim.

  5. “It might mean he’s paritsan.” ed

    I am confused, ed.

    What does partisanship have to do with ANYTHING? King Donald The Loser got elected because he was partisan. Kelly got hired because he was partisan. You are partisan.

    What were YOU really trying to say?

  6. Ed Mcguire, John Kelly said Trump was “an idiot” and “unhinged” in 2018 and that was 2 yrs before the election. Saying “The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature of every relationship, though it’s more pathetic than anything else.” and “He is the most flawed person I have ever met in my life.” are basically more of the same perceptions Kelly has held for at least 2 years. The sane portion of the electorate have held those beliefs for at least 5 years. Those of us that live in the Northeast have been aware for decades that Trump was a con man.

  7. Does anyone reading Trump’s previous tweet perceive he understands the position of a Chief of Staff? If the CoS was not in his “inner circle,” WHO was?

    NO ONE with a functioning brain is in need of former Trump administration officials to share “why they think the President is unfit for office.”

    To Trump supporters: He fooled you once, shame on him. Fooling you twice is shame on you.
