Watch: Gen Kelly 'stunned' and 'brokenhearted' by Rep Wilson's condolence call criticisms

In the video clip above, Dana Loesch and guest panel discuss White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly’s powerful speech during a press conference today. Gen. Kelly conveyed that he was 'stunned' and 'broken-hearted' by Rep. Frederica Wilson’s highly politicized criticism of the president's condolence call to a fallen soldier's wife.

Kelly, a former general whose Marine son, 1st Lt. Robert Michael Kelly was killed in Afghanistan in 2010, spoke openly of his experience when Gen. Joseph Dunford informed him of his son's death, saying Robert,"was doing exactly what he wanted to do when he was killed."

"I was stunned when I came to work yesterday morning, and brokenhearted at what I saw a member of Congress doing," Kelly said of Wilson’s actions. "A member of Congress who listened in on a phone call from the President of the United States to a young wife, and in his way, tried to express that opinion: that he's a brave man, a fallen hero," he added about Army Sgt. La David Johnson, adding,"Let's try to somehow keep that sacred."
