There’s been a lot of talk about John Kelly’s reactions during an important breakfast with Trump and European allies this morning.
And we're off. Within minutes of his first event of the day, President Trump is going off about defense spending, singling out Germany and claiming they are totally controlled by Russia. John Kelly looks around the room and takes a long drink of water.

Watch John Kelly search the room, his cup, his tie, for some reassuring sign this is all just a dream… But it never comes. It never comes. https://t.co/ikAfbbDC3F NATO

Watch John Kelly. All he’s missing is ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ theme music. pic.twitter.com/CXFPob5GsS

John Kelly's face is priceless. That's all you need to know about how crazy Trump's comments are. https://t.co/0SeUUd0W7z

John Kelly looks like he’s already composing his memoirs in his head and they’re in all caps https://t.co/nZGQPkaL4v

You get the idea. For the FULL story on what Trump said, click here.
The Washington Post asked Sarah Sanders for an explanation. What was going through John Kelly’s head at the time?
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.”
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sarah you are BRUUUUTAL!

Oh man. This is so ridiculous that I enjoy imagining it being true. Kelly was so pissed about the breakfast that he was visibly upset about it. https://t.co/PsuxdZs550

Okay that’s hella relatable. “Continental breakfast” is just a codeword for bullshit https://t.co/G01dstZbFK

Well, he’s a pretty Paleo guy. I’d be displeased by carbs for breakfast. https://t.co/OUeQ5TaTd5

I think this is the perfect way to combat MSM’s incredibly stupid stories. Provide them with incredibly stupid statements in return.
Fight fire with fire.
I love it.
