(CNN) -- John Kelly, the longest-serving White House chief of staff for Donald Trump, offered his harshest criticism yet of the former president in an exclusive statement to CNN.

Kelly set the record straight with on-the-record confirmation of a number of damning stories about statements Trump made behind closed doors attacking US service members and veterans, listing a number of objectionable comments Kelly witnessed Trump make firsthand.

“What can I add that has not already been said?” Kelly said, when asked if he wanted to weigh in on his former boss in light of recent comments made by other former Trump officials. “A person that thinks those who defend their country in uniform, or are shot down or seriously wounded in combat, or spend years being tortured as POWs are all ‘suckers’ because ‘there is nothing in it for them.’ A person that did not want to be seen in the presence of military amputees because ‘it doesn’t look good for me.’ A person who demonstrated open contempt for a Gold Star family – for all Gold Star families – on TV during the 2016 campaign, and rants that our most precious heroes who gave their lives in America’s defense are ‘losers’ and wouldn’t visit their graves in France.

“A person who is not truthful regarding his position on the protection of unborn life, on women, on minorities, on evangelical Christians, on Jews, on working men and women,” Kelly continued. “A person that has no idea what America stands for and has no idea what America is all about. A person who cavalierly suggests that a selfless warrior who has served his country for 40 years in peacetime and war should lose his life for treason – in expectation that someone will take action. A person who admires autocrats and murderous dictators. A person that has nothing but contempt for our democratic institutions, our Constitution, and the rule of law.

“There is nothing more that can be said,” Kelly concluded. “God help us.”

In the statement, Kelly is confirming, on the record, a number of details in a 2020 story in The Atlantic by editor-in-chief Jeffrey Goldberg, including Trump turning to Kelly on Memorial Day 2017, as they stood among those killed in Afghanistan and Iraq in Section 60 at Arlington National Cemetery, and saying, “I don’t get it. What was in it for them?”

I was preparing to post this story when I read your thread. trump is as despicable as we all thought. But his cult will dismiss this...cause everyone lies except trump.
 
Get real Kelly. "Disturbing stories" like beauty are in the minds of the beholder. Politics is a hardcore business and if you have a thin skin you best not participate. Trump has a thick skin but unstable senator John McCain was relatively sensitive to criticism. Did he think he would receive kid glove treatment for his entire career for being shot down in Vietnam and taken prisoner? Relatively unknown James Stockdale was the real hero. He bashed himself in the face with a chair rather than be forced to testify on behalf of the V.C. It's alleged that McCain received preferential treatment because his father was an Admiral and he willingly signed incriminating documents.

Nothing Burger with a side of Who Cares Fries.

Trump is who he is.

"Alledged" only counts when there is cooperating witnesses. Kelly is above reproach. Of course the trump stories are true.

There was far more than McCain listed in the OP

A complete disdain for our armed forces
