Trump Viciously Attacks Retired General Stanley McChrystal For Criticizing Him


President Donald Trump lashed out at retired General Stanley McChrystal on Tuesday morning over remarks made about him during an interview.

Earlier this week, McChrystal strongly criticized Trump’s immorality and lies while defending former Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

“I don’t think he tells the truth,” McChrystal told ABC’s Martha Raddatz on Sunday, going on to agree that Trump is “immoral” before criticizing his decision to fire Mattis for resigning in protest of his surrender in Syria before ISIS is defeated.

“What I would ask every American to do is again, stand in front of that mirror and say, what are we about?” the retired general continued. “Am I really willing to throw away or ignore some of the things that people do that are pretty unacceptable normally just because they accomplish certain other things that we might like. If we want to be governed by someone we wouldn’t do a business deal with because their background is so shady, if we’re willing to do that then that’s in conflict with who I think we are. And so I think it’s necessary in those times to take a stand.”

Well, Trump finally responded to McChrystal’s remarks by calling him a “dog” and accusing him of being a “Hillary lover.”

It should be pointed out that McChrystal was not fired for his performance as Commander of the International Security Assistance Force and U.S. Forces in Afghanistan. He was fired by former President Obama for publicly making inappropriate remarks about Vice-President Joe Biden and other administration officials.

Trump is literally insulting a widely respected military leader who served in the 82nd Airborne and the Army Rangers, and has served as an officer during the Gulf War and as a commander during the Iraq War and War in Afghanistan.

His service is impeccable, unlike Trump, who never served but instead dodged the draft five times during the Vietnam War.

Twitter users jumped to McChrystal’s defense.

With tweets like this latest one from Trump, it’s little wonder why his approval rating is dropping among active-duty troops. And it’s why his approval rating will likely start to crater among veterans as well.
