Kelly had been seen by some as a voice of reason in the White House. But his latest comments may have burned up whatever goodwill he had among the president’s critics:
There was compromise before the Civil War. It was called - get this - The Missouri Compromise. Didn't work out so well.

John Kelly wanting to compromise with slave-owners actually tells you all you need to know about John Kelly's moral framework.

If you were wondering (which you shouldn't be) yes, Slavery started the civil war.

The only way you can argue the Civil War should have been averted through compromise is if you believe black lives literally didn't matter.

We call for the resignation of John Kelly. We won’t tolerate the defense of slaveowners.

Anybody that says John Kelly is the moral consciousness of the White House is gravely mistaken.
John Kelly is the swamp.
