On Tuesday, after detailing his new infrastructure plan, President Donald Trump sparred with the press over his initial response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend.

It did not, by all accounts, go very well.

But don’t take anyone else’s word for it—just watch the despondent, hollow stare of Trump’s new chief of staff, retired Gen. John Kelly, who took the job just two weeks ago. Many expected him to be a disciplinarian, able to keep Trump and the rest of a chaotic West Wing on message.

It appears he’s yet to achieve that goal.

Does that need the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme? A lot of people felt it needed the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme.

Okay, here it is with the Curb Your Enthusiasm theme.

And here’s a longer version, this time with Trump’s words and the Curb theme.

But it wasn’t just a Larry David moment for Kelly. Some actually thought they were watching the poor man’s soul being crushed in real time.

There was also a plea for some Talking Heads.

It’s pretty perfect with some Simon & Garfunkel.

But then again, maybe we are all getting it wrong.

This being Trump, we’ll find out soon enough where Kelly stands after Tuesday.
