Elizabeth Warren: 'You Bet' I Was Tough on John Kelly

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., said Friday that she was “tough” on White House chief of staff John Kelly in response to a report that he called her an “impolite, arrogant woman,” last year.

“Remember when @realDonaldTrump launched the illegal, bigoted Muslim ban? People were being illegally detained – a direct and flagrant violation of court orders,” Warren tweeted on Friday, the day after BuzzFeed News published Kelly’s remark “So my office tried to get answers from @DHSgov about families who couldn’t get home to Logan.”

“There was only 1 problem: the new @DHSgov Secretary John Kelly wouldn’t return my calls," Warren continued. "When I finally got him on the phone, he bizarrely insisted I made the whole thing up & we’d never tried to reach him in the first place. So I read him all the emails between our staffs."

She added, “There are some men who can only hear 'blah blah blah' whenever a woman’s talking. But there’s nothing impolite about people’s right to speak out and hold their government accountable. And sometimes, people are right to be angry.”

“Was I tough on John Kelly in that phone call? You bet I was," Warren wrote. "Apparently he thought I was an ‘impolite arrogant woman.’ ‘Blah blah blah’ – that’s all he had to say when he was called out for breaking the law and destroying lives.”
