I don’t understand how any of this is a surprise. This article in The Atlantic is not a shock to me. He has always been this disgusting.
Will the folks in the military finally wake up and see what has always been in front of them?
That their Commander-In-Chief is an utter fraud.😠😠
Here’s my promise to you: If I have the honor of serving as the next commander in chief, I will ensure that our American heroes know that I will have their back and honor their sacrifice. Always. https://t.co/wMFHHscD51

A senior Defense Department official I just spoke with confirmed this story by @JeffreyGoldberg in its entirety. Especially the grafs about the late Sen. John McCain and former Marine Gen. John Kelly, President @realDonaldTrump former chief of staff. https://t.co/ol2lhBbgv8

1/ There's a demimonde of retired general officers who have been split on how to handle Trump.
Some think they need to stay our of politics.
Some think speaking will do more harm than good.
Some have faith our institutions are stronger than Trump.

3/ I pray you'll speak out, and speak the hard truth to the country. No, I don't expect it will change the minds or hearts of his voters, but the men and women you led in war and peace deserve your honesty.

My phone is blowing up. Academy classmates, old Army friends, former Soldiers, colleagues. The anger, sadness, raw rage is palpable. At what was said, but more so to all those who excused it and wished it away. Every wound of each and every loss is open and raw again.

Go ahead, Republicans. Defend this. Tell us all why this man should be Commander in Chief. Tell us why any of you who enabled and rationalized this obscenity should not be driven from office in shame. https://t.co/gf5TWQcxJ6

Yeah…where are the Republicans😒😒
I think you have to go back to Abraham Lincoln to find a relatively good Republican.
Article is by Juan Cole.
If you do not know much about WW1, and most Americans probably don’t given how poorly history is taught in this country, there is an excellent documentary called “Apocalypse WW1”. I just watched it for the second time last month, it is exceptionally well done, the narrated in English version is shown here in US.
Apocalypse: World War I
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“Apocalypse: World War I (in French: Apocalypse, la Première Guerre mondiale) is a TV series made up of 5 French documentaries created by Isabelle Clarke and Daniel Costelle, and narrated by Mathieu Kassovitz. Originally broadcast in 2014, it chronologically traces the history of the World War I, from its origins to the end of the war. It gathers known or unpublished period documents and recounts the great events of the war, from restored and colored archive images.”
Good Morning, Everyone 😄😄😄
