    General good evening to you and coming forward for us Americans thank you 😂

  2. Why would a draft dodger respect the military?

  3. That is a general, and I will serve under him anytime!
    Trump is an evil man!

  4. When a General says that we’re in trouble, believe him.

    This man just sows chaos everywhere he goes. He’s lost his mind. He can do whatever he wants?

    Confounding is how I feel about those who still support him, though perhaps they are just purely racist.

    It is indeed sad the “Commander in Chief” is a clueless moron that doesn’t bother to learn, totally insecured and lies all the time

    • @James Gardener TDS yes. You responded like I expected

    • James Gardener | September 6, 2020 at 3:29 PM | Reply

      Richard G So are you. Dumb as a door knob. When you can’t defend your cult leader ‘s disgusting comments on fallen soldiers then people are that angered by this are having TDS. Which part of my original statement was wrong?

    • @James Gardener you don’t have any proof to begin with.

    • James Gardener | September 6, 2020 at 3:49 PM | Reply

      Richard G Even your favorite Fox news confirms the story. His past comments on John McCain, George Bush and Gold stars families were repulsive enough anyway. But I guess you dumb Trumpflakes just ignore those too. How about condemning Putin on the bounty on American soldiers? How about the poisoning Russian opposition? How about licking Putin’s boots in Helsinki? It is a sad case of so called Commander in Chief who dodged drafts 5x

    • Trumpies yeah always and always make an unreasonable demands

  9. Russia found that destroying the USA from the inside was their best plan and trump is their best weapon.

    • Wallis parnell | September 7, 2020 at 7:24 PM | Reply

      DM Tea Nikita Khrushchev said this much , and it’s been the movement of Communist Russia, since them. Trump is under the thumb of a Putin, period!

  10. If McCaffrey says Trump is wrecking the country, then believe him.

    • @Walter White Said the WHITE GUY who NEVER had to advocate for his Civil rights. This country was founded on “riots”! Boston Tea Party, Coal Miners, Stonewall, March in Selma. Where are the police reforms that trump promised? The fact that you are ignorant of this means you come from a place of privilege from either Race or money,. Or you just a garden variety Russian Bot!

    • @Crystal Giddens WHAT? John Hopkins puts the mortality rate at 4%. Mortality rate is people that die that are INFECTED. Death rates are the number of people in the United States that die from Covid.

    • @Crystal Giddens According to FactCheck.org, many viral posts wrongly suggest that the COVID-19 death toll is exaggerated because “the state” has instructed that “anyone who didn’t die by a gun shot wound or car accident” be listed as a coronavirus victim.

      Experts said there is no such default classification — and that the U.S. death count is probably underestimated.

      FactCheck.org says there’s no evidence that any state has adopted a policy to classify all deaths, regardless of the individual circumstances, as being related to COVID-19.

      Sally Aiken, the president of the National Association of Medical Examiners, called the allegation “ridiculous.”

      “Death certificates are basically federal, and each state has a public health division that answers to the [U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] for death certification,” Aiken, the Spokane County, Washington, medical examiner, told us in an email. “For all practical purposes death certification is directed by the feds, via health departments.”

      “Medical Examiners and Coroners certify hundreds to thousands of deaths each year, using investigation, autopsies, and medical tests as required, and do not choose a ‘default diagnosis’ such as COVID-19.”

      Aiken added that CDC offers guidance to public health officials on the certification of COVID-19 deaths. The latest guidance was issued April 2.

      “If COVID–19 played a role in the death, this condition should be specified on the death certificate. In many cases, it is likely that it will be the [underlying cause of death], as it can lead to various life-threatening conditions, such as pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS),” the guidance says. “In these cases, COVID-19 should be reported on the lowest line used in Part I with the other conditions to which it gave rise listed on the lines above it.” (Read more here from FactCheck.org)

    • @Alexandra Daniele when ever I think that, trump manages to lower the bar!

    • @D WINEVER what happened to our country?

      @Ivo Dimov You are a Russian bot. Your sentences?? make absolutely no sense from the start of your post. At one point I think you are starting to talk about Clinton and I think are trying to resurrect the debunked lie that she sold uranium to the Russians. This was a total lie. Look it up- at the same time she supposedly sold U to Russian which she could not do without the entire CFIUS (9 State Departments of the President’s Cabinet voted for the sale), the NRC, one of the states in the US, and the US President, as well as the Canadian Government (the company was owned by Canadians), there was a contract with Russia where the U from Russian nuclear weapons was down blended to a level that could be used in nuclear power plants and sold to the US. 500 metric tons of the uranium in Russian nuclear weapons was sold to the US from 1993 to 2013. In 2010, a much smaller quantity of unmined U ore of very low quality in the US was bought from the Canadian company and never went to Russia. Russia didn’t need it or even really want it. It was part of the Canadian deal to get U in another country close to Russia. So you are trying to spread misinformation as usual.

NOW BERNIE MARX IS THE ANSWER, THIS DAYS DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS NO LONGER WHAT USE TO BE, IT IS NOW THE FACE OF GUASIMODO FOR DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS,WITHOUT SAYING A WORD THAT REPUBLICAN ARE NOT INNOCENT ESMERALDA.

      @Ivo Dimov Even in all CAPS you don’t make much sense. I think you are stating that Democrats are liars? Trump is the “Liar in Chief.” I have been reading Cohen’s book which outlines all of Trump’s deeds. Cohen comes clean with all of the cheating that Trump undertook to get elected. He states he was all for Trump running even knowing that Trump was amoral, a bully, and not really qualified to be President, but thought he might rise to the office. Cohen states that Trump was Cohen’s ticket to the WH & power, but he did not think about the damage Trump would due to the nation. Trump wants to emulate Putin. After all he controls over 25% of the wealth in Russian and is effectively leader for life at this point. Putin is a dictator that controls the media, power, and the wealth and uses the oligarchs like Trump is using the GOP. Trump has no regard for anyone and is in the office not for a patriotic purpose, not to “drain the swamp,” not to help the American economy (only the Stock market where he and the wealthy invest to make money). He is in it to increase his wealth. When he decided to run he was at a low state financially (at least for him). His wealth was and is no where close to where he claims it to be. He cheats on taxes by deflating the worth of his properties and claiming losses. In fact one year, according to Cohen, he received a 10 million dollar refund check from the IRS and called Cohen to his office. He held up the check and told Cohen, Can you believe how xxxxing stupid the IRS is?! Before you go off on the line that Cohen is a liar because of a lie he told to Congress to protect himself and Trump, Cohen put a quote from the Mueller report (footnote 909 in volume 2) that stated the testimony given to investigators while under oath was substantiated/ corroberated by other evidence gathered by investigators and Cohen co-operated fully. Cohen had nothing to lose when writing his book and explained his was trying to regain himself. Like those who blindly follow him and will do anything he requests whether immoral, illegal, basically something they know to be wrong, he was caught up in the Trump charisma and ability to manipulate. People close to Trump do his bidding to avoid the wrath and disapproval of Trump. They know he has the means to not only harass, but to damage them in some way, most often financially by destroying their businesses. Cohen indicated he has been replaced by William Barr, Kuschner, Jim Jones and many others as well as all those in Congress who are AFRAID to speak the truth. Reality and truth is not of any use to Trump. He lives by what he decrees is the truth even when it is easily proved to be incorrect. Anyone who attempts to correct his statements will be dealt with in a harsh manner. Trump is more than a bully and incompetent to be President. He is an ill individual who has always been told he was correct no matter what and continues to be enabled by the GOP. He is a danger to our Democratic Republic and wants to bacome it’s leader like Putin, or even Kim Jung-Un.

  18. For Liberty, for freedom, for democracy, for America – no American who is true to this Republic should be casting a vote for Trump.

  19. It is what it is, I say what I say – this Palm Beach Florida republican will not be voting for Trump

  20. I SERVED UNDER GENERAL MCCAFFREY. If He says it, you CAN BET YOUR LIFE ON IT!
