(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The reaction of White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly to the comments from Representative Frederica Wilson yesterday about what she overheard President Trump say to Myeshia Johnson, the widow of fallen soldier La David Johnson, introduced. [KELLY - says he was stunned a member of Congress listened in to a phone call & his hope death on the battlefield might be held sacred.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's retired Gen. Mark Hertling & retired Adm. John Kirby about Kelly, the Congresswoman & politics. [HERTLING - offers views on Kelly, with whom he served in Iraq, how this is about presidential leadership & how we are being divisive with Kelly attacking the press so we have to go back to empathy; wonders if Kelly was also sending a message to his boss, President Trump.] [KIRBY - offers views on Kelly, now a political figure, how the civil-military gap is widening when we need to bridge that gap to support Gold Star families.]

Cooper, Anderson
