White House Chief of Staff John Kelly went after Gregory Salcido, a California high school teacher who was recorded bashing the U.S. military, in a Wednesday interview with Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade.
“I think the guy ought to go to hell,” Kelly, a former four-star general, flatly declared. “I hope he enjoys the liberties and the lifestyle that we have fought for.”

“Think about the people who you know who are over there,” Salcido said of military members during a classroom rant which was recorded by one of his students. “Your freaking stupid Uncle Louie or whatever. They’re dumbasses. They’re not like high-level thinkers, they’re not academic people, they’re not intellectual people. They’re the lowest of our low.”
Salcido has since been placed on administrative leave, pending an investigation.
