“The vast majority of people who worked in the White House were decent people who were doing the best they could to serve the nation.
“They’ve unfortunately paid quite a price for that in reputation and future employment. They don’t deserve that.
“They deserve better than that, because they kept the train from careening off the tracks. The climate—the work environment—is always set by the boss.
“And people, generally speaking, endured it as long as they could. Until they couldn’t.” – Former White House chief of staff John Kelly, asked by The Atlantic if it was all worth it.
“They deserve better than that, because they kept the train from careening off the tracks.”–John Kelly
I am so tired of hearing this shit for an excuse. The Trump presidency derailed on the first day when they chose to lie about inauguration crowd size. https://t.co/1zLyu2MbQC

The idea of John Kelly surveying the mountains of dead bodies strewn across this country, the incomprehensible personal and economic destruction, and thinking “thank goodness this thing didn’t go off the rails” is almost comically dark. https://t.co/2ABrc9WcgG

Bullshit John Kelly. You & these “decent” people who worked in the White House knew he was unfit. You all had a duty to speak publicly. https://t.co/yCG14yhbAd
