Former Trump chief of staff John Kelly spoke of the depths of Trump's dishonesty, calling the president pathetic.
General Kelly told CNN, “The depth of his dishonesty is just amazing to me. The dishonesty, the transactional nature of every relationship, though more pathetic than anything else. He's the most flawed person I've ever met in my life. "

It's good that General Kelly released his thoughts on Trump ahead of the elections, but it would have been far more useful to the country if he had spoken loudly and publicly at any point since he left the Trump administration.
Kelly's comments are similar to those of Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE), who said everything about Trump in a call with supporters that Republicans refuse to say publicly.
The fact that Republicans are increasingly revealing their true feelings about Trump suggests that the Republican Party believes Trump will lose to Joe Biden, and they are about to ditch the seated president in order to make themselves aware of his failure to distance themselves and save their reputation for the future.
The situation is dictated by political expediency as Republicans don't just kick Trump when he's down. You throw him out without political courage.
