Analyst: Trump’s DHS pick a very good human being


THROUGH YOUR MIND?>>WELL, FIRST, ANA, I WOULD SAY HE WAS MY BATTLE BUDDY IN IRAQ FOR OVER A YEAR, HE COMMANDED IN THE WESTERN PROVINCES WHILE I HAD THE NORTHERN PROVINCES IN 2011 AND 2008. WE COORDINATED A BIT AND COLLABORATED OPERATIONS, WE SHARED BATTLE SPACE, I KNOW THE MAN AS A MARINE, AS A SOLDIER, HE’S A HECK OF A COMBAT FIGHTER, HE’S CALM, COLLECTED, VERY MUCH OF AN INTELLECTUAL, SMART GUY AND GREAT GUY TO SIT AROUND AND HAVE A BEER WITH. I ALSO ATTENDED HIS SON’S FUNERAL AT ARLINGTON AND I KNOW WHAT PAIN THAT PUT HIM THROUGH AFTER SERVING OVER FOUR DECADES IN THE MARINE CORPS TO SEE HIS YOUNG SON KILLED IN ACTION IN AFGHANISTAN. JOHN KELLY IS A VERY GOOD HUMAN BEING, A HECK OF A MARINE BUT A VERY THOUGHTFUL INTELLECTUAL AND ANALYTICAL SOLDIER AS WELL SO HE IS GOING TO BRING SOME VERY GOOD QUALITIES TO THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AND HOMELAND SECURITY. >>SOUNDS LIKE YOU LIKE THIS PICK. ARE THERE ANY CONS YOU SEE?>>WELL, SOME OF THE CONS IS THIS ANOTHER MILL FAIR GUY, THAT’S CONCERNING TO ME A LITTLE BIT. WE STILL HAVEN’T SEEN THE SECRETARY OF STATE AND WHO THAT PICK IS GOING TO BE ALTHOUGH THERE ARE SEVERAL MILITARY OFFICERS IN THAT RAMPUP, TOO SO WHEN YOU HAVE TOO MANY MILITARY PEOPLE IN THE ROOM, SOME MIGHT SAY HOLY SMOKES, THIS IS LOOKING A LITTLE BIT LIKE A COUP D’ETAT. BUT I ALSO BELIEVE MR. TRUMP IS TRYING TO MANAGE THE DICHOTOMY BETWEEN HIS UNDERSTANDING OF INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS AND FOREIGN RELATIONSHIPS AND MILITARY OPERATIONS, SOME THINGS HE DOESN’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT, WITH SOME SMART PEOPLE IN THE ROOM, AGAIN ALL OF THESE INDIVIDUALS HAVE TAKEN THEIR UNIFORM OFF, THEY ARE NOW CIVILIANS SO THEY ARE PATRIOTS AND WILLING TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE GOVERNMENT. I GIVE THEM CREDIT FOR THAT. THESE ARE SMART GUYS AND THEY KNOW HOW TO TAKE ACTION SO OTHER THAN THE FACT THEY ALL SPENT A LIFETIME IN THE MILITARY, NONE OF THAT CONCERNS ME AT ALL.
