But on Friday morning, Trump’s tweet was deleted.
Hidden within the photos the president posted was Kelly, who was caught with his head buried in his palm–something he’s been known to do on camera in the past.
The internet, of course, noticed Kelly’s expression.

Trump tweeted out this wonderful photo, and I took the time to zoom in so you could see what John Kelly is thinking... pic.twitter.com/J6JuswIEjn— Pesach 'Pace' Lattin ⏺ (@pacelattin) April 13, 2018
Kelly, who reportedly has a rocky relationship with the president right now, has been spotted making an exasperated face at the behest of the president in the past.
During Trump’s wild press conference following the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last year, where the president said there was blame on “both sides” for the violence, a photo was taken of Kelly with his face slumped and arms crossed, which instantly became a meme.
But maybe Kelly’s photo in Trump’s tweet on Thursday was just him reflecting on when he said “God punished” him by sending him to be part of the president’s administration?
