White House Chief of Staff John Kelly told the White House Press Corps that he spent an hour and a half walking around Arlington National Cemetery yesterday after a congresswoman politicized President Trump’s call to a Gold Star family.

“Life, the dignity of life is sacred – that’s gone. Religion – that seems to be gone as well. Gold Star families – I think that left in the convention over the summer,” Kelly said. “But I just thought, the selfless devotion that brings a man or woman to die on the battlefield, I just thought that might be sacred.”

The chief of staff said that the “only thing [he] could do” when listening to Rep. Frederica Wilson’s (D-FL) politicization of the phone call was to walk around Arlington National Cemetery for an hour and a half.
