Imagine Hillary Clinton was sworn in as president on January 20, 2016. We know, we know. But, just imagine she was President of the United States and the Joint Chiefs of Staff undermined her authority. Imagine this general called China and said he would give them a warning in case Clinton attacked.
Imagine this general then told other generals they shouldn't follow President Clinton's orders.
What do you think the Democrat politicians would say? Do you think Joe Biden would say he has great confidence in that general? Of course not.
If this happened under his administration, where Biden was overruled and undermined by a general, what would Biden do? Certainly, Biden would fire him. Biden may even have the House or Senate investigate the general. Maybe this general would be made an example out of and charged with crimes.
The U.S. Constitution spells out the President's duties. Article II says, 'The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States.' It doesn't say the Joint Chiefs of Staff gets to run the show. Nope. That's the problem with General Mark Milley. He attempted to usurp authority from the President because he was 'worried.' So worried he called his Chinese counterpart and said he would warn him if the United States authorized a strike.
The left is making Milley a hero because they want to continue to paint Trump as crazy and inept. But, if the situation were reversed they'd be calling for Milley to be removed from his position and put in a military prison. We know it. They know it. They just don't care.
Because politics is only about winning.
Winning has become more important than the very founding document that binds Americans together, United States Constitution.
