    one of three things was going on here.   One, he was just being polite (the president probably shouldn't opine on a local issue).  Two, he was being polite to Schumer, who is rattling the cage for Kelly probably only as a means of getting personal attention  (Schumer gives a press conference every Sunday morning on some issue.  He doesn't do shit about the issue afterwards, of course.  The rumor had been that he was furious when Clinton was senator because she took all of the spotlight, despite him being the senior senator.).  Three, he was referring to Kelly's role in counter-terrorism, etc., without thinking about stop and frisk.  Of course, the other possibility is that he will indeed nominate Kelly for the position, which would be another horrible appointment.
