    Yes, finally someone admits they’re a jerk.

    Some bells cannot be unrung. That is why people need to consider consequences before kowtowing to fascists.

      Tony Glover I guess I mean you are one of the most ignorant people on 🌎 difference. You are the change that needs to happen.

    • I will accept the apology and him realizing he shouldn’t have been there representing the military. What frustrates me is having the highest ranking military in this county being lead by the nose of a washed up reality TV show host. I just don’t understand?

      Hold up GOD’S HOLY WORD TRUMP!

      He understands more than you. You don’t like that. He understands your idealism is a phony sales pitch at an attempt to represent your shallow entity as something to be regarded as resolute, helpful, and honorable. I didn’t need a paid college brainwashing for that one.

      @Rick Nash kinda like what you and yours do?

    Refreshing. Sad it’s so rare in this “administration” to own up to one’s ill advised actions.

      Lana Kahl We live in a time of abject mendacity narcissism & raging self preservation, factored into a labyrinthine perpetual news cycle, “one week” seems like one nanosecond. I think you’d have to agree, his week of reflection & then articulating public contrition, has elevated him above the fray. No?

    • They only “own up” when they get caught…if no one told him what he had done was wrong, this public apology would never have happened. No one has the balls to stand up in the moment, only after they have been made to look bad. At which point the apology is too little, too late.

      Bet you anything he asked Trump for permission to call out his mistake, be for announcing it.

    • Ready Now&Forever | June 11, 2020 at 2:52 PM | Reply

      Nate Waters I think you’re right about what precipitated the public apology, but if he didn’t know he was wrong or challenged on the idea, why would he apologize? I mean even you’re suggesting that he didn’t know, so at the very minimum, maybe he didn’t understand the gravity of that comical exercise.

    Haha. Trump is going to blow his wig!

  5. Seems like he knows he won’t have four more years with Trump

      @Anthony you people will try and find any reason possible to not trust a decorated general won’t you? Traitor. The man has earned 16 military awards those awards being 2 DDSM, 4 ADSM, 3 DSSM, 3 LOM, and 4 bronze stars.

      Bore Trajanoski I don’t mind us Keeping America Great at all.

    • @GR3YH4TT3R93 Trump & his allies are all defending the same traitors who went to war against their own government & got slaughtered. The same ones who tell black people to get over slavery but refuse to get over the Confederate flag & those statues memorializing LOSERS & TRAITORS.

    • @SUGAR DOLLAR DADDY BBC That’s just the beginning of the interference – Trump and his lawyer Bill Barr will go to the end of the earth to stop Trump from losing this election – there’s too much money to be made for the corrupt greedy men and women who are doing deals with foreign countries that we’re not aware of! It will be a dangerous move, indeed, if Trump gets in and Bill Barr is his Attorney – America will not be the same if he stays!

    The fact that he knows he will be attacked by the president lends credibility to his apology IMO. The attack on him by the president will probably commence by the end of the day

  7. Trump destroys whatever he touches smh

    Is America Great Yet?? smh

      @CAPTAIN SALTY Very nice! Glad you are happy! I love machines and electronics of all kinds! My motto is.. If ya can’t plug it in or put gas in it….. It ain’t worth having! Lol! I used to build my own hot rods. Including the engines. From a 69 Z-28 to a 62 425 hp 409 chevy! Now I just buy performance. Like a BMW 5 Series. And an 18 foot modern bass boat! My bmw cost $80,000 but I have more in my home stereo? And don’t even know how much I have in guitar and P.A. gear! I’m insane!… But happy lol!

    • CAPTAIN SALTY Who you lying to man. This is your flag ( 🇷🇺 ) Be proud of it, don’t hide behind the American flag.

    • CAPTAIN SALTY Like I’m suppose to take the word of some random dude on the internet HaHaHaHa!! Especially one that glorifies a known LIER..Yeah funny. Veteran of the Russian army maybe. Your own flag boy ( 🇷🇺 )

  8. Stay tuned for a Trump tweet on this lol

  9. That mushroom cloud rising over the WH right now? Oh, that would be Trump’s head exploding…

    • OMG…
      Don’t even joke about mushroom clouds right now.
      Trump is toying with the idea to play with nuclear weapons sometime in July.
      (Hasn’t said where he wants to fire these things off….)
      Maybe that will be his surprise fourth of July tribute for America….I don’t know….
      Don’t give this man any ideas.
      Stay safe….vote

      Wait for him to declare and proclaim something against immigrants like they’re the reason for his poor decisions. SMH.

    Trump: I do not know that guy, never met him.

  11. People power is not a joke. They really got a general out here apologizing. Awesome.

      @Meheretu Getahun #WeThePeople

    • well, when all the old people die……. who’s gonna run the country?>
      certainly the children of the ELITES……. BUT… BUT…. how can you be a manager/boss of an agency, military, or political congress,
      IF VAST majority of young people refuse to work for YOU, refuse to come work for someone like you if they think you’re bad.

      the boss will have to flip hamburgers by himself and go to the drive-by booth to give food, and be cashier etc, all at the same time.

      while the young people are busy burning the city down till there is no more,
      the so called elites and their children won’t have a place or good life to enjoy, cause the basic infrastructures of life, and services of businesses, will all be burnt to the ground, and no one to clean it up.

      that is the POWER OF THE PEOPLE.
      the refusal to work, the refusal to be the TOOL of agencies of government to suppress their own citizens.

    That’s how a grown up behaves. He admits a mistake and learns

    • Sophia Lewis | June 11, 2020 at 5:50 PM | Reply

      Yup. It sounded good that apology but bad decision for a general in even agreeing the walk. Still seems sincere enough. I’ma watching though

    • Elijah Craig | June 13, 2020 at 4:40 PM | Reply

      I’ll always respect a man who admits his mistakes and sincerely apologises…. King David did just so and was forgiven…We all make mistakes and get ahead of ourselves from time to time…Trump on the other hand would Never apologise, would Never admit for one single second he was wrong about anything he’s done said or thought….

  13. Trumps a total failure..Why anyone would choose to walk behind the anti Christ is just bizarre.

  14. Get ready for bunker boy to go on his 2yr old tweet storm over this one.

      Hahahahaha. True let’s wait for it on all the news.

    • “Some people say he wasn’t a good guy. Not too bright. Too uptight in the briefings. I couldn’t pay attention to him, very boring, put me to sleep. What a weak guy. I called him Meek Milley. Wasn’t very tough, wasn’t tough on China. Yugely disappointing. I don’t know the guy really, but he’s weak.”

    • sgt shitbags only sorry after realizing mostly whites caught that smoke.. if these were BLACK protestors he would be bragging about it..

      He is giving them extra time in his bunker now. It’s playtime in bunker days!
      Put those hands to use, Donald.

  17. I respect that, he admitted a mistake , clearly, without trying to disguise it as a misunderstanding or a I didnt know , or a I tought it was something else …
    He openly says , ” I made a mistake and I’m learning from it, I should not have done that ”
    That is ok in my book,now if you do it again, or side again with the president on something similar.. or if you stand idle while watching more civilians being tear gassed or flash banged or rubber bullet shot at , that would be a different story and would erase this respect sir.

    • Sophia Lewis | June 11, 2020 at 5:45 PM | Reply

      I’m prepared to agree with you…..Yes he didn’t gaslight us with any twisted crap but if he does any about turns…people got to go back to no Justice or Integrity NO PEACE! TIME TO STOP THIS FOOLISH WH ADMINISTRATION AND ITS CRONIES

  18. He stepped on the wrong side of history and realized it.

  19. The General has realized just like Dr. Fauci that the Bunker Boy Trump ship is sinking Bigly…!!!

    Every general that associates himself with “president” trump winds up with his reputation, career, and legacy in shambles.
