If you guys spent a little more time hanging out with a few "Inside the Beltway personnel" rather than speculating on hearsay and conjecture, you would know that General Kelly is far more than what appears in the public eye.
Kelly was promoted to brigadier general, which was the first known promotion of a Marine Corps colonel in an active combat zone since that of another First Marine Division assistant division commander, Chesty Puller, in January of 51.
There's a rhyme and reason to Mogul's unconventional tactics.
The RNC had to be taught a lesson and Prebius was the bullet sponge.

I'm also as hesitant to speculate on Trump suffering a mental illness since he has had to pass numerous physicals by military physicians.
Do you have a source for that?
Dr. Ronny Jackson, a rear admiral in the US Navy, will continue to serve as physician to the president, White House press secretary Sean Spicer told STAT. Jackson was appointed as the lead White House doctor by Obama in July 2013. He had previously served in the White House Medical Unit under Obama and George W. Bush.

What if these generals go the other way with trump? What if they decide he is a danger to the country? This may not go the way trump had it planned. Trump seems to have escalated N Korea taunts with his tactics and blaming China and Russia, this can't end well. Maybe the generals know that.
My first thoughts on that were, by surrounding himself with Military it gives the impression to other countries he "CAN" impose martial law if he chooses. It also strikes a fear into his domestic opponents just since the "Visual" is so striking.
Kelly has proved himself to be in lock-step with Trump's wishes
It's possible, Trump is surrounding himself with military to stage a coup d 'etat when Mueller comes calling.
Emporer Don has shown himself to have zero respect for the laws of our nation
He is enamored with authoritarians such as Erdogan, Putin, and Duterte.
