“I don’t think I’m being fired today and I am not so frustrated in this job that I’m thinking of leaving,” Kelly said in a light-hearted moment with reporters.

Kelly called the job the hardest and most important job he’s ever had, but not the best job he’s had, saying that that the best job he’s ever had was when he was an enlisted Marine.

Asked by a reporter if he was frustrated at all, Kelly said, “No, I’m not frustrated.”
