Some of the so-called “adults” around Donald Trump have been busily ruining their reputations in order to try and save their reputations from the man-baby “president.” One such person is current White House Chief of Staff John Kelly. The world watched in horror as Kelly looked absolutely dismayed at Trump’s unhinged press conference after the racist neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, as Trump seemed to equate Nazis with those who would protest their vile and violent bigotry that eventually resulted in much bloodshed and at least one death.
However, despite Kelly’s obvious discomfort with Trump’s increasingly bizarre behavior, Trump has continued with his delusion that Kelly, no matter what his flaws might be, is on his side. But, it seems that even Trump must understand that John Kelly is not at all comfortable with his behavior, because he tweeted a photo of his Chief of Staff once again looking dismayed at the state of this so-called “presidency” — and then deleted it.
We are once again reminded that Donald Trump is not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer, because the internet is forever, and no matter how many tweets he deletes, we can all rest assured that there is a screenshot somewhere for posterity to enjoy once this nightmare is over, should the nation survive. This time, said screenshot comes from Bloomberg research analyst Anna Massoglia. She tweeted the devastating photo that Trump tried to erase from the web:
It appears @realDonaldTrump has deleted his tweet with a photo of the Agriculture Roundtable that was mocked for capturing Trump White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s signature facepalm https://t.co/AapMYlLXDm pic.twitter.com/2gq85VmTjS

As the tweet says, the picture was captured at a meeting on agriculture, in which Trump was undoubtedly putting his rank ignorance of all things regarding government on display for the nation and world to see. Because of Trump’s demand for sycophantic loyalty and unwavering praise, Kelly cannot exactly say anything. But, what he can’t say is regularly displayed in his body language, and boy, what a display this particular photo is.
It’s like GOP strategist turned vehement anti-Trump conservative Rick Wilson says — everything Trump touches dies. That includes the souls of the generals he surrounds himself with who, until now, were absolutely untouchable as far as reputations go. Looking at you, John Kelly.
