NY Times: Gen. John Kelly May be Too Patriotic

The media used to praise Gen. John Kelly when he went from serving as President Donald Trump’s Homeland Security cabinet secretary to his chief of staff.

After Kelly’s criticism of Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson, the New York Times [1]┬árethought that position.

Reporter Peter Baker was alarmed by Kelly’s patriotism, even though Kelly is a retired four-star general who oversaw America’s Iraq war:

“For all of the talk of Mr. Kelly as a moderating force and the so-called grown-up in the room, it turns out that he harbors strong feelings on patriotism, national security, and immigration that mirror the hard-line views of his outspoken boss.”
