John Kelly says Trump likely won't read 'quite lengthy' 10-page Democratic memo on FBI

Source: RawStory

President Donald Trump has not read the House Democrats’ response to last week’s memo written by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) — and the president’s chief of staff now says that the president will merely be briefed on its contents sometime on Tuesday.

CNN’s Caitlan Collins reports that Kelly said that while Trump will be briefed on the memo by his advisers, he will likely not read it himself.”

“No, no, it is quite lengthy,” Kelly said, per pool reports.




However, the Democrats’ memo, which aims to rebut charges made in the Nunes memo that the FBI inappropriately obtained a FISA warrant against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, is reportedly a mere 10 pages long, although that makes it two-and-a-half times longer than the memo released by Republicans last week.

3. Ten pages is not "quite lengthy" for anybody but Trump.

I read ten-page and much longer documents routinely in a previous career; I even wrote them. It was part of my job. It is part of a president's job to read documents, too - even documents that are more than one page long, do not contain graphics or illustrations, and do not mention his name frequently.

I think I'll try that. Boss, if it's more than a couple pages, I'll just skip it and wait for the briefing. I wonder how that will fly? Interesting that many are held to vastly higher standards than the pResident of the freaking United States.

29. Isn't that the truth.

I'd make $0 if I couldn't/wouldn't read. The president doesn't have the skill set to fill out a 7-11 job application.

This orange bag of rage tears is the scab of the universe. A reprehensible specimen. He shouldn't exist. There is certainly no god.

Trump needs "Memos For Dummies." Or Cliff's Notes. Or Reader's Digest.

20. That's Right - Let's Cut Him Some More Slack....

So the fate of the Dem's response lies in the feelings of the person that will be doing Trump's briefing on this response.

Depending on how that person spins this response will determine the decision that Trump will make on this.

Although - he might not even require a briefing - his decision is probably already made up.

30. Dems have plans A, B, and C already laid out.

(A) Trump blocks it. "He's obviously hiding something big."
(B) Trump redacts parts of it. See plan (A).
(C) Trump releases it. The Dem memo probably causes a lot of damage.

Asking him to read 10 whole pages in one day is slave labor. I'm all for increasing productivity in a careful and humane way but we all know 10 pages is a two man job! Let's not take advantage of Trump's good-nature.

except the teleprompter when required. fox news will give him all the talking points he needs about it.

in all seriousness, it is so pathetic it is very nearly comical. i just can't seem to swallow that this happened in my country.

After all, he just said that his boss probably won't read a 10-page memo because it's too long. I mean, really, doesn't that sort of make him out to be an idiot?

Thanks, John Kelly.

But he's probably still an asshole.

That's General Asshole to all of us.

Grab the Dems memo and read it, and then just tell me the stupidest Democrat stuff you read in it, kay. Just the stuff that makes the FBI NOT sound like the traitors we know they are, or makes Devin Nunes look bad! Kay?

And I'll you which that stuff I want you to say you took out for NATSEC reasons after you leave here, got it? Kay, now start reading!
