Former White House Chief of Staff Harshly Criticizes Fox News

Former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly denounced at least a portion of Fox News’ audience for being ill-informed if that’s their only source of news.

The respected retired Marine Corps general finds himself in a war of words with a reinvigorated President Trump, who unsurprisingly isn’t content to take Kelly’s criticisms lying down.

Mediaite’s Adrian Carrasquillo reports:

“You have to be careful about what you are watching and reading because the media has taken sides,” he said. “So if you only watch Fox News, because it’s reinforcing what you believe, you are not an informed citizen.”

The comments came during an interview where Kelly also said Col. Alexander Vindman was fired for refusing to “follow an illegal order,” and said he clashed with President Donald Trump on the Muslim immigration ban, and his incessant need to call the media the “enemy of the state.”

“The media, in my view, and I feel very strongly about this, is not the enemy of the people,” he said. “We need a free media.”

In recent weeks, Kelly took a shot at Senate Republicans, calling the impeachment trial without witnesses, “half a trial,” which Fox News reported.

Kelly and Trump’s relationship has deteriorated as the former chief of staff has increasingly expressed misgivings over the president’s behavior while the president contends the general was in “way over his head” at the White House.
