Conservative radio host and U.S. military veteran Jesse Kelly appeared with Tucker Carlson on Thursday night completely fired up and ready to shred the Biden administration.
When Tucker Carlson asked Kelly, who hosts the “Jesse Kelly Show,” to react to the tragic day in Afghanistan, he wasn’t short of scathing commentary. Kelly had joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 2000, deployed to Iraq in 2003, and was honorably discharged in 2004, according to Ballotpedia.
“What do you think this means?” Tucker asked. “What is going on here, exactly?”
“Politics,” Kelly responded. “No patriotism at all. No love of country at all. This is all politics, Tucker.”
“That is why I am as full of hate and rage right now as I have been probably since 9/11,” he continued.
“I know for a fact either mothers or wives or somebody like that they are getting a phone call tonight or they will be getting a phone call shortly, and they are going to find out husband’s never coming home again, daddy’s never coming home again, my son’s never coming home again.”
“And I know for a fact the scumbags in the White House who run this country, they are sitting around a table as we speak, and they’re not worried about mommy, they’re not worried about daddy, they’re not worried about that kids, they haven’t shed a single tear for anybody, they are worried about poll numbers, Tucker.”
“They are wondering what polls well,” he went on. “‘How we doing with middle-aged women’? ‘How do you think we did with black people tonight’? How do you think we did’ — these people disgust me.”
“They disgust me as much as the Taliban disgusts me,” he added. “I am so grossed out by the people who lead this country. Our warriors deserve so much better.”
“They certainly do,” Tucker Carlson commented. “You’ve got to say, though, it does feel like, potentially a turning point. This reveals such rot underneath. Our credentialed class, their claim to power is their expertise. They’re good at stuff you’re not. ‘You’re Jesse Kelly, you used to sell RVs. Shut up and obey.’ But they’ve just revealed that they actually have no idea what they’re doing. They can’t even withdraw from Afghanistan.”
“So, what change do you imagine going forward this will spur?” Carlson asked.
“Absolutely nothing,” Kelly said. “Absolutely nothing. Tucker, they’ve put Joe Biden in there on purpose. You remember. They cleared out the field and put in this old man who is clear half-functional.”
“Instead of dependable, we got Depends in the White House,” he added. “That guy has no idea what he is doing. And the back-up plan is Kamala Harris who quite literally laid down to get the job.”
“These people don’t care about country at all,” he said. “There’s no plan. That’s what’s amazing right now, Tucker. None of them. Not one person. Not Lloyd Austin. Not Milley. Or any one of these idiots.”
“None of them are looking in the mirror as you and I are talking and saying to themselves, ‘Gee, I think I really screwed up’,” Kelly said. “They are all worried about their own rear ends and their pensions and their career.”
“There’s no patriotism anymore,” Kelly said. “And it makes me want to vomit.”
These are powerful words coming from a U.S. veteran that needed to be said and heard. They speak for a lot of Americans. Tragically, they speak most of all for those who lost family members in Afghanistan due to the disastrous Biden administration.
