This week, journalists, Carol E. Lee, Courtney Kube, Kristen Welker and Stephanie Ruhle filed a story with NBC News claiming John Kelly thinks Donald Trump is an idiot, feels he is the last bastion of hope against catastrophe from a president who has little grasp of policy or government, and (if that’s not enough), women are “more emotional” than men.
Kelly is so concerned with the delicate sensibilities of women that he is known for scolding those who dare to swear with a lady is present. Instead of the women of the White House admiring the unasked for protection, it is reported he is loathed.
Lee and Ruhle joined MSNBC political correspondent, Kasie Hunt, to unpack and break down Kelly’s concept of emotional women. Lee was quick to chime in that the White House Chief of Staff has “antiquated views about women, saying:
His views on women really shocked some people. Just the things that would come out of his mouth.
With Ruhle adding:
What he thinks is Rob Porter’s ex-wives really need to move on, and he looks forward to the moment where he can restore Rob Porter’s honor. That he thinks is A-OK, but don’t you be using any swear words in front of the girls.

When it comes being emotional, people were wondering if Kelly had met Trump.
Women are more emotional? Has he met Donald Trump?

This is absurd. Does he even know who he works for?

Apparently John Kelly hasn't noticed the fragile and emotional menace he works for throwing almost daily tantrums and sulks. pic.twitter.com/y0tjLcC1sg

Kelly formed his opinion about women in the 1950s and has never changed. Emotional, you say. Have you met donald trump?

That awkward moment when John Kelly tells White House staff that “women are more emotional than men” but no one hears him because President Trump is yelling at the TV because CNN reported a fact. Oops! https://t.co/i1NXrvq9UJ

John Kelly has told aides multiple times that women are more emotional than men, including at least once in front of Trump, four current and former officials tell NBC News. https://t.co/LltG93gcaM

John Kelly said that women are more emotional than men.
Look at these pictures. YOU decide which one is the MOST emotional.

John Kelly, who works for DONALD TRUMP, thinks women are more emotional than men.
Let me say with the coolly-delivered contempt that is all the emotion I can even muster for this vile wreck: Fuck you, bub.
