White House chief of staff John Kelly slammed Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts in an email to a staffer last year following a conversation with the influential senator about President Donald Trump’s controversial travel ban, according to a report.
Kelly, then the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, in the email described Warren as “arrogant” and “impolite” to a subordinate, BuzzFeed reported on Thursday.
“Absolutely most insulting conversation I have ever had with anyone,” wrote Kelly in the email following a conversation with Warren about several constituents detained in Boston’s Logan Airport under US President Donald Trump’s travel ban despite having visas.
“What an impolite arrogant woman. She immediately began insulting our people accusing them of not following the court order, insulting and abusive behavior towards those covered by the pause, blah blah blah,” he added, mocking Warren’s concerns.
