PHOTO: John Kelly Appears Embarrassed During Trump’s UN Speech

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly appeared to have an embarrassed reaction as President Donald Trump delivered remarks at the United Nations on Tuesday.

While sitting directly behind First Lady Melania Trump, Kelly held his head in his hands and then stared directly toward the ground with his elbows on his knees.

During Trump’s speech, he referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as being a “rocket man on a suicide mission” and vowed to “totally destroy” the communist Asian country if necessary.

Media reports say Trump’s advisers scrapped using the nickname to refer to the North Korean leader. Instead, Trump rolled with it during his speech in front of many world leaders.

This isn’t the first time Kelly’s appeared disappointed during a Trump speech, though. Just last month, as Trump held an impromptu press conference addressing the widespread violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, a photo surfaced showing Kelly reacting in a similar fashion.

Kelly was seen standing off to the side of Trump, looking on with other members of the administration. NBC News reporter Kristin Donnelly captured a photo of the general standing with his arms crossed on his chest, his head looking to the ground and a blank expression on his face.

The reaction came after Trump blamed “both sides” for the violence spurred by a white supremacist rally in the city.

“You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists,” Trump said.

Prior to landing the Chief of Staff job, Kelly served in the administration as the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. He was hired to serve as Trump’s Chief of Staff after Reince Priebus was relieved of his duties in late July.

“Kelly’s hiring is expected to usher in potentially sweeping structural changes to the turbulent operation,” The Washington Post wrote.

The White House has publicly said that all people within the administration would report to Kelly. On his first day in the new position, Kelly fired communications director Anthony Scaramucci, who lasted in the role just 10 days.

Another idiot that can’t take the truth. WE THE PEOPLE SARND WUTH OUR PRESIDENT TRUMP

JOHN MAYOR

FORMAL CLASSICAL ASCRIPTION OF IDIOS
.
.
The Greek morpheme, idios (from the Greek, ἴδιος… for one’s own, personal, private!) is an expression that has been much sorely abused and misused, over centuries of “pejorative ascriptions” by countless thoughtless individuals! The Greek “idios”, refers… PURELY!… to “one’s individuality”, or “one’s membership in the family of individuals”! And… to subsume this expression within the “pejorative ascriptions” that bend… yea, break!… the simple “linguistic morphemic narrative” for this word for “personal” and “individual”, is to impose an informal colloquialism– but, indeed, slang!– that was never originally a part of the original “FORMAL ASCRIPTION” of/ for this term!
.
For example, the Greek suffixal morphemic element “-sis”, pertains to the “state”/ “condition”/ “process” of something! And, when added to the term idios, we get the term, IDIOSIS… i.e., the “state”, “condition”, or “process” of “one’s own person” or “one’s own individuality”! And, when adding the adjectival suffixal morphemic element of idio-sis (i.e., forming “IDIO-TIC”!… for “the state/ condition/ process of one’s own person or one’s own individuality”!), or merely adding -ic to idio-(t) (and again, forming “IDIOT-IC”!… from ic-os, and ik-os!… for “pertaining to one’s own person or one’s own individuality”!), we’re confronted with a “contemporary pejorative ascription”, THAT HAS N-O-T-H-I-N-G T-O D-O WITH THE PROPER INTERPRETATION OF “IDIO-TIC”/ “IDIOT-IC!”! [The use -ic, a softened, and clipped version of “ik”, from ik-os, and the use -os, from ic-os and ik-os, referring to that which is “characteristic of”, or “abounding in”!]
.
According to the Bauer-Danker Lexicon, the noun ίδιωτής, meant (in ancient Greek), “civilian (ref Josephus Bell 2 178)”/ “private citizen (ref sb 3924 9 25)”! What we’ve recieved instead, however, is an imposed PEJORATIVE COLLOQUIAL/ SLANG ASCRIPTION for this word, that trashes a meaning that was never a part of the CLASSICAL FORMAL NEOLOGISM! And, compounding this etymologic confusion, are the problems associated with an attempt to add the Greek suffixal morphemic element, “etes (for ‘AGENT’, and ‘AGENCY’!)”, and its variants (i.e., -et, -ete, -tes, -te and -t!) to idio-(s)! And so… when we remove/ replace the suffixal morphemic character (s) from idios, and attempt to add the suffixal morphemic element -t, we are again confronted by this “PEJORATIVE ASCRIPTION”!… rather, than a NORMAL CLASSICAL ASCRIPTION that reads: “an agent of one’s own person, or individuality”, or, the “agency of one’s own person, or individuality”! And, again, although one can simply add the suffixal morphemic element -ic to idiot, doing so will result in the foolish imposition of a PEJORATIVE COLLOQUIAL/ SLANG that will render this otherwise useful term, useless!
.
This ABUSE of idios, has resulted in an unnecessary hurdle to linguists, and neologists, in their reasonable attempt to introduce other formal prefixal, infixal, and suffixal morphemic elements based upon this “CLASSIC FORMAL ROOT”!… and, has meant the loss of other possible Classic Formal Ascriptions! And which could have– would have!– fostered our historic and contemporary wisdom/ understanding/ knowledge of the notion of THE PERSON/ THE INDIVIDUAL! An utterly regrettable loss! And, all due– unfortunately– to the “preoccupation” with M-I-N-D-L-E-S-S P-E-J-O-R-A-T-I-V-E A-S-C-R-I-P-T-I-O-N-S, by I-L-L-I-T-E-R-A-T-E B-U-L-L-I-E-S! That is to say!… thus far!
.
Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!
