Trump Doubles Down: Ask Gen. John Kelly If Obama Ever Called When His Son Died In Combat [VIDEO]

Every day the Dotard-In-Chief finds a new way to demonstrate that he’s a detestable lying scumbag.

The Washington Examiner reports:

President Trump said Tuesday that anyone with questions of whether former President Barack Obama called the families of fallen service members can ask White House chief of staff John Kelly if he received a phone call from Obama.

“I think I’ve called every family of someone who’s died,” Trump told Fox News radio host Brian Kilmeade. “As far as other representatives, I don’t know. You could ask Gen. Kelly, did he get a call from Obama?” Kelly’s son, Marine 2nd Lt. Robert Kelly, was killed while serving in Afghanistan in 2010.

Ned Price, spokesman and senior director for the National Security Council under Obama, blasted Trump’s “inane cruelty” for bringing up the death of Kelly’s son in order to bash Obama.

    Kinda hope Kelly says, “Err, he did, actually,” cause Obama sure ain’t going to dignify that nonsense.

  • Tawreos

    Christ on a pony, I know I shouldn’t, but I still keep being surprised at how low this asshole will go to protect his fragile fucking ego.

    • ChrisInKansas

      Will the dignity and honor of the Presidency ever be the same again? I’m not sure.

      • Todd20036

        Hell, will the dignity and honor of fallen soldiers ever be the same again?

        • ChrisInKansas

          Can you imagine having to sit through a call from Trump if such a horror would happen to you? “I wanted to make sure I called you. This was rough for me. Be sure to tell the press I called you.”

          • charemor

            Not “Mr. President” but simply “Donald or Donnie”. I just can not bring myself to call him president.

          • Gerry Fisher

            As I read that, I heard Alec Baldwin’s impersonation.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Yeah, I’m seriously concerned that this is the new normal with our politics. Even if it’s someone who isn’t as odious As Trump. I mean look at the top Runners to become president next time around. Trump, Oprah, Cuban, Zuckerberg. Yes, all of them would be better than Trump. But I don’t want this to be the new normal

        • ChrisInKansas

          Now anyone in the public eye who has cash is a serious candidate. Fucking frightening.

          • Todd20036

            Kid Rock for senator.

            You also gotta be a star. Movie or teevee, doesn’t matter. Maybe a rock star, too. This what America has been reduced to.

        • Stuart Wyman-Cahall

          Kid Rock will skip the Senate stuff and just shoot for the stars!

          On the other hand, we might be able to draft Dolly Parton. Everyone loves Dolly!

        • JDS

          Should be dank bottom.

      • Frank McCormick

        I agree, there is no bottom. The question should be: is there a peak to the tolerance of his supporters?

        • scottrose

          Call your Representative in Congress and your two Senators.

          Demand they speak with one voice, saying “Trump must go!” and then applying relentless pressure until he is driven out of office.

          Congresswoman Maxine Waters is right when she says that Trump “does not deserve to represent us to the world.’

          THAT’s the kind of thing that needs to be said in response to Trump’s ceaseless outrageous behavior. Not chasing after each thing in its particulars — Did Obama call Kelly? Is there really a lot of water around Puerto Rico? Can Trump revoke NBC’s license? et cetera — but just “Once more, Trump demonstrates that he does not deserve to represent us to the world. He must be pressured out of office immediately.”

          THAT’s the talk we need to hear from Representatives and Senators.

          • Joseph Miceli

            At this point, I am not so sure, at least not until he has stacked the Supreme Court with their choices. It was ALWAYS about the Supreme Court. That’s their weapon of choice to dismantle abortion and gay rights. Once, he’s done their bidding, he’s toast.

          • Fake news!

            Trump understands his base. He said during the campaign that he could kill someone live on tv in the middle of Fifth Avenue and they’d still support him. They would. There’s nothing you’re going to say to make them turn on him. They don’t believe anything bad about him. It’s all lies or irrelevant. If you don’t believe me that means you don’t actually know any Trump supporters and please trade lives with me because I sure as fuck wish I didn’t.

        • Octoberfurst

          The trouble is they would have to have intelligence and common-sense before they realize how much he is fucking them over. Those are two qualities they don’t have. Plus wingnuts NEVER admit they were wrong so it is a lost cause.

    Now President Obama has to have called EVERY family or he’s the one at fault (according to Trump,) even though he had nothing to do with this whole shit fest.

    Kelly won’t dignify it, neither will Obama. Which means the wingnuts will have a blast.

    Fuck you, Trump.

    • Steverino

      Trump is following the time-honored far right wing playbook, which holds that the exception (if there is one) somehow disproves or discredits the rule.

      • Bad Tom

        And the frenzied look for that exception dishonors what was one of the best (if saddest) traditions of the office of the President.

        Trump turns everything he touches to shit.

    • Todd20036

      If Kelly walks, that will be all he needs to say on the matter.

      • Bad Tom

        Control Rod Kelly. Ya think Trump’ll go supercritical if he’s withdrawn?

        • Todd20036

          This isn’t supercritical?

          • Bad Tom

            No.

            Supercritical is characterized by the exponential release of energy.

            If Trump starts a nuclear war, we’re there.

          • Ken M

            Trump will go crazier if Kelly stays, and Kelly knows it. Revenge can take many forms, and proving Trump’s expectations wrong is a good start

      • Chucktech

        He won’t. He knows he’s part of the firewall between the grotesquerie that is Trump and the United States of America.

  • Tawreos

    I am not a fan of violence, but Kelly would be fully justified in making sure that Trump has two black eyes and a broken nose while he reads an apology to Kelly and all of the families that have lost loved ones in the military.

    • Bluto

      I don’t condone violence either but this has a level of justifiable appropriateness. Mere words will not suffice.

      • Tawreos

        I want no permanent damage, just a not so gentle reminder that words have consequences.

        • Bluto

          That is a lesson he sorely needs.

      • Cattleya1

        There is a phrase in Italian – ‘Giusto Sdegno’. It kinda translates into English as ‘Righteous Indignation. The rethugs need to get a little of it.

    Kelly will prove himself quite the whore by staying on after this sort of abuse.

      Nah, he’d be gone already if he weren’t actually trying to protect the country from where he is.

      • scottrose

        It’s wishful thinking to believe that any honorable person would have accepted to work for Toxic Donald.

    • gaycuckhubby

      I think Kelly thinks of himself as the one person who can stand between Trump and total devastation both here and across the world. I’m not sure he’s wrong.

  • The New Paige Turner™

    I would expect a Man of General Kelly’s stature to resign immediately following this latest outburst.

    • JAKvirginia

      Or plot revenge? He knows where the skeletons are. And Halloween is coming.

      • The New Paige Turner™

        Whilst Im all for Machiavellian style revenge, Insulting Gen Kelly’s son like this is too much and would also make for an easy exit which he clearly wants.

        • JAKvirginia

          Well, if it were me I’d think “If my ass is gone so is yours!”

        • coram nobis

          Yes, but Gen. Kelly may remember a Klingon proverb that says that revenge is a dish best eaten cold.

    • PeterC

      And then who would be watching Trump????????
      Possibly no one.

  • Tatonka

    In 2010, Obama was dealing with two active middle east wars that he inherited from his Republican predecessor. Trump can boast after he calls the parents of every service person killed in the wars he’s trying desperately to start with North Korea and Iran.

    Kelly should lock him up without his phone for 48 hours and tell anyone who asks that Trump is in mourning.

  • gaycuckhubby

    I, and most of the country, are hoping that Kelly is keeping notes, taking names and working hard behind the scenes to make a case for article 25 impeachment hearings.

    • The_Wretched

      I think that’s a long long long shot. The cabinet is filled with Trump loyalists who were chosen for their desire to destroy the agency they head – they have a high tolerance for things falling apart. They are also not going to go against the party establishment too far so the 25 only happens when Senator Turtle and his reptilian kin want it to (which is never).

      • tbj5

        It only needs half the cabinet. And the crooks he installed are only loyal to money and power. They’ll sell out Trump to save their skin or get further ahead and need be.

        I hope that keeps Donnie up at night, now that he knows what the 25th is, knowing that his loyal servants will abandon him as quickly as he abandoned his ex-wives.

        • The_Wretched

          I hope it happens. We should plan for it not happening, however.

    • Robincho

  • MikeBx2

    Unfortunately, this feels like another one of those times when Trump sinks to an all new low, then gets a pass. Wish it weren’t so. I’m anxious for the day when Trump pays a price for his callousness.

  • Ross

    There is a lot of Kelly bashing on this thread.

    The man may well be shit.

    Or he may be the only thing keeping this country together.

    I suspect the latter.

    • Todd20036

      Not so much Kelly bashing, as is this the last straw for Kelly?

      • gaycuckhubby

        Let’s hope not. It would be fun to see Trump and his entire administration go up in flames, but there would be so many underprivileged people who would be horribly harmed

        • Ross

          I think Trump et al. will go down in flames.

          I just don’t want to see the country, and globe, go with them.

    • zhera

      Is the country being kept together, though? It looks to me as if it’s falling apart, exploding and imploding at the same time.

      • Ross

        The country is mostly fine.

        At the moment.

        When the press is shut down, and minorities being trucked to “camps”, the country will have been lost.

        • I think that if the press is shut down that is when we should worry. Right now concern and eyes wide open are where we need to be.

    • scottrose

      You are delusional if you think the country is being kept together.

      The U.S.s international prestige has been shattered.

      Not a single reputable foreign leader holds Trump in esteem, or thinks the country is at all trustworthy — in any respect — be it for diplomacy, for business or for trade.

      Meanwhile, Trump’s deliberate sabotage of the healthcare insurance markets have every health insurer and policyholder on edge. Trump does not give a fuck if his actions results in thousands, tens of thousands or even a million premature preventable deaths.

      And that in the so-called “richest” or alternately “greatest” country in the world?

      Every Trump cabinet member is busy dismembering the agency or department they head — with the possible exception of Sessions who is working to strengthen privately-owned prisons and to stuff them full of prisoners.

      A whole U.S. territory with 3.5 million people is teetering on the brink of a humanitarian collapse and Toxic Donald doesn’t give a shit and Kelly isn’t doing anything about that situation either.

      Wake up.

      • Ross

        I am awake.

        Wide awake.

        At the moment, we still have a free press. Our courts are still working. Dissenters are not being routinely carted off to jails with no trials. Mueller is working away.

        The single biggest threat to America is that it appears we no longer have honest elections. And little attention is being paid to this.

        I am a historian. A lot of what we are seeing has happened before. Even during George Washington’s time.

        Remember, America once has slavery. It once denied women the right to vote. It created segregation. It rounded up tens of thousands of Americans during WWII and set them to camps. It jailed homosexuals. It had the National Guard murder unarmed students. And I can go on and on.

        Make no mistake, we are living in perilous times. But America is not destroyed.

        Yet.

    • Ken M

      The approval isn’t for him. There are those who would say, “would Hillary have done/be doing any better?” Without actually wanting to discuss an answer. He actually needs to start remind people that he won. Maybe their guilt in voting for him, will come back to haunt them.

    • JAKvirginia

      Don’t believe them. More people approve of him than voted for him? At this point? Yeah, right.

      Some people will NEVER admit they were wrong. Just like reading the Bible thoroughly and still think it is ALL good to hang your life on.

  • Tomcat

    Well Trump, don’t you dare miss even one war death where you don’t call the parents of the deceased. You low life snake in the grass.

  • tbj5

    The “I think” part of his statement is a classic tell for compulsive liars. He knows he didn’t, but he will say that he thinks he did, and therefore he’s not actually saying definitively that he did. That way he can say he was mistaken later when proven otherwise, and that he never confirmed he had.

    His dementia is progressing rapidly if he made such a blunderous lie in the first place, and if he’s so transparent in his deflections and further lies

    • LaChatSayWha

      And when someone call him out on it, he’ll say, “many people were saying…” so fucking predictable. The only effective responses to a liar like him are to laugh at him or ignore him.

      • scottrose

        Yes — as if General Kelly had never eaten foodstuffs harvested or otherwise processed in the U.S. by undocumented labor, and as if he didn’t know that farmers are unable to find adequate numbers of workers when the undocumented labor is driven away, as happened in Alabama when Sessions was a Senator for that state.

          Oh, of course. Thank you.

  • Tomcat

    One thing I NEVER saw Obama do was go to a return of a deceased soldier and have a photo OP. But you did you asshole.

  • Jim Maloney

    Might Kelly have given his ok for Trump to say this? I’m surprised Trump would even know his son was killed since it’s not about Trump but, now that it’s about Trump, he does.

  • Elston

    Has anyone thought that by making this personal with Kelly, Trump is undermining the possibility of an Art 25 move by the cabinet?

  • slp0923

    Not trying to defend Trump here but who’s to say that Kelly didn’t suggest Trump make this comment? You are coming to defend a guy that voluntarily took the job knowing the shit Trump does …

    • scottrose

      Yes. Anybody still enabling the shit stain Toxic Donald in any way is a despicable asshole.

    • Chucktech

      Someone has to babysit this moron.

    • HanyBaal

      Yup, It’s very likely he was reflecting expressed resentment on the part of Kelly. How else would he have known about Kelly’s fallen kid? it’s not like he’s known for his astuteness or deep empathy.

  • CJAS

    What insufferable trash he is.

  • Blake Mason

    Kelly will not say anything… cause this is what he signed up for.

  • Leo

    The very little respect for Kelly I had is gone if he stays after this.

  • bambinoitaliano
    • thatotherjean

      Amen to that!

  • Michael R

    At some point someone has to ask him during one of these events …
    ” Do you even care what the truth is ? “

    • Joseph Miceli

      Kellyanne doesn’t. Why should he?

      • Tor

        To paraphrase:
        Kellyanne: “Why should he?”

  • Gene Perry

    There is a phone log of every call to or from the WH dating back to the Nixon era. Check the log (or some reporter will with a FOIA request). Donny, you can’t just make shit up. There are easy ways to fact-check. #MORON

    • Tor

      Of course Donny can make shit up. It’s what he does most of most days.

    • Halou

      Yeah. Donny’s regime will get right on that, just like they did with the Mar-a-Lago visitor logs, also the subject of a FOIA request.

      Did you know that since inauguration day only six people went there, all of them part of Japan’s PM Shinzo Abe’s entourage? Yeah. That is how much contempt they have for American laws.

  • Robert Adams

    It’s taken 71 years of living, but I can now say I’ve witnessed the lowest most vile human being that ever walked this planet.

    • MichaelJ

      I’m not quite as old, but I worry and get very upset by the possibility that the damage caused by Trump, his sycophants, his enabling fellow Republicans, and the bulk of his supporters who would rather live in a fascist country than a democratic will not undone in my lifetime.

      • Robert Adams

        I know. I told a friend of mine who has 3 small children that I am really worried for his kids.

    • JCF

      Well, alive during my lifetime (Hitler died 17 years before my birth, Stalin 8 years before. OK, Mao and Pol Pot and Idi Amin *may* give Drumpf a run for his money. They’ll all find out in Hell!)

    • Robincho

      Not quite. But definitely in the bottom ten…

  • Ken M

    Does the F*cking moron think he’s somehow “safer” on radio? All that you say or do Donnie is public now. ; -)

  • netxtown

    it would appear the mangy orange bitch is in the corner – pulling out all the stops of decency – on his way down – and out.

  • Renfield
  • SFBruce

    You’d think that even heartless Donnie might draw the line at using the death of slain heroes as a political prop. But no, little Donnie draws no lines when it comes to propping up his fragile ego.

    • Renfield

      I believe the way to understand the shitgibbon is that for him, no one else exists independently. We are all there to lavish praise and shower him with money. We only exist as we relate to him. I hope his death is slow and very painful.

    • scottrose

      Kelly probably OKd this in advance.

      Kelly is a scumbag.

      Remember when Toxic Donald was given a ceremonial sword, and when Toxic returned to his seat behind Kelly, Kelly was caught on a hot mike saying “Use that on the press, sir.”?

      He’s a scumbag.

      What is serving in the military to “defend our freedoms” worth if you’re going to encourage a Putin wannabe to attack the free press?

  • Chris Baker

    Reporter: “Gen. Kelly: Did President Obama call you…?”

    Kelly: “I am not going to even respond to such a silly question. I am not even going to get involved in that.”

    • andrew

      It seems to me that the question is not “silly” and deserved a yes or no answer.

      • scottrose

        Chris is satirizing, based on Tillerson’s refusal to deny having called Toxic Donald a fucking moron.

    • Shorter version: “Yes. But don’t tell Donald.”

  • Max_1

    Oh please, John Kelly is a COWARD!!!

    As I long ago said, his son died so that his father has the freedom to stand behind a white supremacist. And stand, he does. Kelly won’t walk after this…
    … because he is a COWARD!!!

    • Meaning of course Obama didn’t have to call Kelly on the phone. HE TALKED TO HIM RIGHT THERE AT THE BREAKFAST.

      • Bj Lincoln

        Except it was months later. Did Obama call within hours or days? I can’t imagine Obama ignoring this duty as President or as a human being.

        • JCF

          Drumpf said “Never”, Bj. There wasn’t a time duration specified.

        • Cattleya1

          And, Kelly was a general at the time. I do not think Res. Obama flubbed that one.

      • LaChatSayWha

        At any rate, Obama would have called the guy’s wife, not his father-in-law. More drumpf bullshit, lies fomenting lies. I am so fucking tired of this.

    • JCF

      Aw damn, this story broke a lot earlier than I first heard it. Props to you, Max.

  • -M-

    The Drumpf White House is a real crass act.

  • Why are we still surprised at anything this orange golem says or does any longer? He’s proven that there are no depths he will not plumb for an ego more fragile than a spun glass egg in a construction site; just as the majority of his administration and his supporters in the GOP have also proven with their rabid defense of his actions. Pardon the imagery here, but it’s perfectly appropriate for such an inappropriate man-child now in the Oval Office: if he were fucking dead babies in the front window at Bloomindale’s while shopping for a new wife on Russianbride.com and burning the Constitution with Mar-A-Lago matchbooks, not one of his supporters would even blink. Just get back to work finding justifications.

    John Kelly and his wife sat with Michelle Obama at Gold Star family gathering after son’s death

  • Halou

    Once again, Trump dodges his military responsibilities.

  • BlindBill

    Wonder if he remembers that this started being about four U.S. service members killed in Western Africa…. and his only thought is falsely claiming how he is better than Obama.

    Trump will NEVER be better than Obama in any way. Trump is a #FuckingMoron

    • Halou

      Just another reason why he rants about how black athletes kneeling is disrespectful of the flag and military personnel. Deflecting from his own astonishing lack of patriotism.

  • lymis

    He’s just speaking from personal experience. Nobody in his own family ever got a call from a President thanking them for their military service or sacrifice, so of course, nobody else ever did either.

    That have that nobody in his family HAD military service or made any sacrifices is immaterial to him. Unless maybe he’s still mad he never got a medal for his shin splints?

    • Halou

      Trump sacrificed so much though…
      When addressing his attacks against the Khan family he said this:

      “I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve done, I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot,” he said.

    • Cattleya1

      Come on – Potus Pig suffered. He had to ski on bone spurs instead of going to Viet Nam.

  • CB

    I am now convinced that there is no depth to which this cynical, cruel narcissist will sink.

    • Robincho

      You mean there’s no depth to which he will NOT sink…

  • TexasBoy

    Are we seriously supposed to believe that Trump has call the family of every soldier we’ve lost since he took office? Are people seriously that stupid?

    • His base is. They are also impervious to facts that don’t support what they already believe, and they believe everything Trump says.

  • Mike

    Dump – is unstable and he is dangerous. Its ok to make fun of him and indeed thats a very good thing to do – but he is crazy in exactly the same way as Stephen Paddock. That type of crazy isn’t dumb – it’s scary

    • thatotherjean

      I’m hoping that Gen. Kelly sees it as a duty to stand between that kind of craziness and the nuclear football, so he isn’t resigning despite Trump’s assholery.toward him and other military personnel. There’s a whole lot I don’t like about Kelly, but if he is able to restrain Trump, we need him where he is.

  • JDS

    I am over being surprised how low Cheeto-Turd can go.

  • AdamTh

    Pres Moron lies about everything for no reason at all – and everyone knows it. What kind of example does this set for his young son?

  • He lies and then doubles down on the lie and there are zero consequences. If I were a Republican politician my staff would be talking me off a ledge right now (and probably without success). OMFG.

  • JCF

    Newest reports re Obama & Kelly: six months after their son’s death, the Kellys were invited to a Gold Star Family breakfast w/ the Obamas at the White House. According to an anonymous source (since the event was private), they sat w/ Michelle.

    FOAD, Drumpf!

    • LesbianTippingHabits


      There are good reasons to wait a decent interval before a phone call; a letter can be received and set aside until the family is ready to read it.

      Our free media can ask both President Obama and General (ret.) Kelly about this, but they may not respond, considering it a private matter.

      In any event, the real issue is how the President reached out.

      FYI, I think Trump thinks he’s telling the truth – clearly, a member of his staff told him his predecessor didn’t bother.

      Anything to make the boss feel good, to leave America alone.
