When John Kelly realized he was the White House Chief of Staff in name only, he left to pursue his dream of playing in a grunge polka band. Since he enjoyed making loud senseless noises, he decided to call his group "John Kelly and the Empty Barrel Band". He found clanging cymbals more soothing than the bellowing nonsense of Trump. John Kelly invited Rep. Frederica Wilson to his first show, but she declined.
John Kelly's first song is titled "Frederica Is My Frickin' Love Freaka".
