Sen. Duckworth: Military Force Against Peaceful Protesters A ‘Betrayal Of The Troops’ | MSNBC 1


Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), a former U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, tells Lawrence O'Donnell that top military leaders need to "stand up" to President Trump when his orders are unlawful, instead of being the president’s "lap dogs who are willing to follow him in battle dress uniform.” Aired on 6/3/2020.

  1. Tom cotton is a P.O.S !!

  2. Wasn’t Tom Cotton on FOX calling for airborne divisions to be dropped in the protesters while Trump/Barr/Jared/Ivanka decided to try the photo op disaster?

  3. I don’t remember Cotton saying this when actual armed people were storming state capitols so they could get haircuts.

    • @Raw Cotton wants to use the military against peaceful protesters. He didn’t say anything about looters.

      Not single was really burning those building it fake looters and fake fires and they didn’t really block a fire truck while a child nearly burned to death in a fire a peaceful protester started in Virginia

    • @Lora Larose I don’t understand you, I don’t speak stupid.


    • Stan Lee thank you.

  4. It’s obvious by now what the GOP wants to do. Make Trump King.

      Mr A that money didn’t come from Trump! Just because he held up you getting a check. So he could put his name on it at your expense, doesn’t mean the money came from him. It’s taxpayer money, Approved by Congress

      Mr A Talk about looting. Taking away all the oversight on that money distribution, resulted in the biggest looting I’ve ever seen

      No, the Lord Jesus Christ shall be King. “Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion” (Psalm 2:6, KJV). Even so, come, Lord Jesus! Establish the Kingdom in Jerusalem, and keep the world safe from Democracy!

      @Mr A: thank the democrats for the stimulus money; trump can’t even find his wee wee let alone think for himself his comprehension skills are pathetic he needs to stop self medicating with Adderall & Hodroxychloriquine

    • @Marcus Guzman Trumps name was on the check, I thank him.

    Now democrats should write another articles of impeechment and send them to senat, let this be on republicans again…

    • Lora Larose | June 4, 2020 at 7:00 AM | Reply

      They going blame trump when there cities in shAmbles 😂😂😂we ask for help 😂😂😂

    • Yeah because the first failed impeachment did so much.

    • @David Hale the impeachment’s failure or success won’t be clear until November. If Rethuglican Senators lose their seats for cowardice, the impeachment was a success.

    • Jamie Mercer | June 4, 2020 at 5:50 PM | Reply

      Unfortunately, that won’t do us any good as long as the Republicans control the Senate. We don’t have enough Democrats in the Senate to convict him. At this point, pursuing impeachment is pointless and the only way to get Trump out is to vote him out.

    • David Lafleche | June 4, 2020 at 5:52 PM | Reply

      Yet you allow criminals to loot and burn.

  6. Tom McDermott | June 4, 2020 at 4:04 AM | Reply

    Esper is a coward – just like his boss

    Rotten Cotton. Another example of a dictatorial “leader”

  8. ludovicusclericus | June 4, 2020 at 6:00 AM | Reply

    Tom Cotton is cut from the same amoral cloth as Donald Trump. HIs OP-Ed is hardly surprising.

  9. Joseph Destito | June 4, 2020 at 6:03 AM | Reply

    His last name is Cotton. Think about where his family got their money…

    Lawless Rogue Admin… RESIGN. The Enemy of The People.

  11. Matthew Lewis | June 4, 2020 at 7:05 AM | Reply

    Tom Cotton is up for re-election in November. Vote him out. He’s a disgusting disgraceful person. He would allow US Military to murder Americans on the streets of America. Show him a gteat big FU in November…

    Let’s not forget The Kent State Four.
    That was the Ohio National Guard.
    Imagine what, untrained in crowd control , The Military might do ?

    • I like the fact that all those semi-autos can be converted pretty quickly 3.1 million ar-15s…the US army doesn’t even have that many with troops behind them….we have superior numbers and….time.

    “Lap dogs.” More like, lap hounds!

    Recall the cotton clown,he is a crazy man just like the trumper dumper,remove Cotton from office,never vote him in again

  15. Tom Cotton… The Senator from Oklahoma? The state that attacked their own black citizens because they had done well and built something? That state?

  16. Those In Uniform Today And In The Past Serve The American People…And The Constitution… Not the Politicians.

  17. Bunker-baby is mad because he has been exposed as a coward to the world. Now he wants vengeance.

  18. Glenda Graves | June 4, 2020 at 9:30 AM | Reply

    Cotton needs to be removed from office for lack of knowledge of the Constitution and for trying to help Trump and Barr turn our country into a fascist dictatorship.

  19. Forrest Trump | June 4, 2020 at 9:58 AM | Reply

    You hear that, Republicans, your party wants martial law!

    Run on that!!

  20. Cotton is a loonytoon. They want to use the military as a means to keep Republikkklans in power.
