On John Kelly’s Disturbing Exit Interview With The LA Times
On Sunday, the LA Times published an interview with outgoing chief of staff (and man who probably thought he'd seen it all after serving nearly five decades in the military), John Kelly. Frankly, I can't decide whether it's notable or not, but it's trending, so I suppose it's worth mentioning on a day when the news flow is likely to be non-existent.
