'Hangry' John Kelly Expects A Lumberjack Breakfast When He Visits Your Sissy Country


Donald Trump is currently shredding our European alliances and stealing bath towels while attending the 29th annual NATO summit in Brussels, which is somehow something the Electoral College enables a former Pizza Hut pitchman to do. During a breakfast meeting Wednesday (yes, yesterday; we are aware he has stunk up Belgium further this morning, and are slogging our way there), Trump claimed that Germany is "totally controlled by Russia," because he says stupid things and although we should never stop being shocked by them, it's getting exhausting. Let's take a quick glimpse at how the president's aides react to the insulting claim, especially White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who appears to suddenly realize he is in a hell of his own making.

People in the reporting business obviously asked the White House about this, and unfortunately that means talking to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who is a singularly graceless liar. She is the press secretary version of the old guy at the corner barber shop who claims to have known Joe Louis. And how she chose to insult our intelligence this time was a model of perfidy.

In a statement to The Post, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, "[Kelly] was displeased because he was expecting a full breakfast and there were only pastries and cheese."

Yeah, she went with "the role of John Kelly is now played by Larry David from 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'." You can almost hear the theme music. Trump's breakfast of champions included US ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, both of whom looked as if they'd been replaced by constipated wax dummies. I guess no one was happy with their breakfast, but I suppose Kelly was singled out for followup because he's the most physically demonstrative. That usually gets the most attention from theatre critics.

I don't like Kelly. He's a Confederate-sympathizing bigot and an asshole in an administration with more assholes than a RedTube channel. Yet, even I think the former Marine deserves better than to have Sanders throw him under the express bus to protect her boss from the reality that everyone around him thinks he's a moron.

Democrats and the pundits from across the political spectrum slammed Trump's absurd remarks, but Sanders would have us believe that while the president is slandering one of our allies, the only thing on Kelly's four-star general mind is his less-than-four-star-hotel breakfast? Did someone forget to put an emergency Snickers bar in his suit pocket? That's how he survived Iraq.

Sanders also basically admits that Kelly's staff has an idiot infestation problem. A quick tour of the Internets clues you in on the baffling breakfast behavior of the Belgians.

First and foremost, Belgians do not eat waffels for breakfast.

Not ever.

Breakfast usually consists of bread and cheese, such as sliced Gouda, jam and honey. Children often eat sandwiches with Nutella or the type of cream cheese sold in the USA as "Laughing Cow". On Sunday or for a special treat, people typically flock to the bakeries in the early morning and buy croissants and crispy bread rolls. Belgians favor (strong) coffee in the morning, although tea has gained some ground. Orange juice is also a common option.

Maybe Kelly normally orders from the kids' menu and wanted to know where the damn Nutella was. His hosts did provide him with a "special treat" of pastries rather than bread. Regardless, he should've known what to expect. If he couldn't manage to make it through a continental breakfast without acting like a four year old, he could've sent a low-level staffer out to McDonald's for an Egg McMuffin.

Sanders also even lied while lying: According to NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg, the breakfast included "eggs and toast and orange juice and some good fruit salad." Why does anyone listen to the lie-spiked word punch she serves up? Look, I get what game Sanders the professional gaslighter is playing. If you demean the once almost respectable people working for Trump, this caricature of American leadership supposedly looks less repulsive. Sanders probably feels safe because she has no dignity to lose.

If the world was a reasonable place, it would be entirely illegal to be as self -serving and full of shit as Mitch McConnell. In a desperate and pitiful play to shame Democrats into folding over like a bunch of beach chairs and coalescing around the Trump Train, that shifty-eyed turtle-faced goobledonker (I made that up and it fits, use it) decided to write himself an op-ed. Wait until you get a load of the title of his masterful self-own, you ready? Ok, here it is: "Will Dems work with us, or simply put partisan politics ahead of the country?"

Are you dead yet? Many of us Democrats saw that headline and keeled over from the hell-ified audacity of Mr. Dorkface Obstruction Man trying to project his shit onto us. We can't be the only ones who remember a certain senator (surprise, it was Mitch McConnell!) saying his main goal was to make Obama a one-term president while he did everything he could to obstruct the Democrats. Oh yeah, and also MERRICK FUCKING GARLAND.

You know how whenever one of these horrible mass shootings happens, and we find out about the shooter, you think to yourself, "Where the hell was the family here? No one who knew this person thought to call the police or put them in an institution or take their guns away?" Well, finally, one family did call the police on their gun-hoarding, neo-Nazi, mass-murderer-idolizing relative -- and they may have prevented another mass shooting by doing so.

On Tuesday afternoon, Washington D.C. police arrested 30-year-old neo-Nazi Jeffrey R. Clark Jr. on federal charges of illegally possessing a firearm while using or addicted to an illegal substance (spoiler: the illegal substance was meth), and on local charges of possessing a high-speed magazine. The police were called in by members of Clark's family who were starting to get freaked out by his many anti-Semitic outbursts about how the 11 people who died in the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting "deserved it," and his description of the massacre as a "dry run for things to come," combined with the fact that he owned a whole lotta weapons.
