MSNBC host Ali Velshi seemed to criticize White House Chief of Staff John Kelly for his decision to only call on reporters who knew Gold Star families at an emotional press conference on Thursday.

“It was a bit of cleanup job in there by General Kelly,” Velshi said.

“I will make note that he did limit the questions to people who were able to say that they knew Gold Star families,” he noted.

“It’s an interesting tactic. That’s not the qualification by which people earn their right to be in the White House Press Briefing,” Velshi said, sounding unhappy with the development. “A little bit unusual that he would do such a thing.”

Kelly served in the Marine Corps, and his son was killed in action in Afghanistan.
