The retired Admiral who led the raid to kill terrorist mastermind Osama Bin Laden just destroyed the President’s criticism of former special forces General with a powerful response.
Retired Admiral William McRaven has been a frequent target of America’s draft-dodging President due to his vocal criticism. However, this weekend, it was retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal that set off Donald Trump when he accurately called Donald Trump “uninformed” and accused him of causing a “crisis in leadership.”
That predictably lead to a very un-Presidential tweet attacking the former Army General as a failure and disparaging him as a “dog” and — the worst insult in the mind of the madman — as a “Hillary lover.” Adm. McRaven’s powerful response to CNN put Trump in his place:

“Stan McChrystal is one of the great generals of this generation and the finest officer I ever served with,” McRaven said.
“He is a deep strategic thinker, tactically brilliant, with unparalleled personal courage. His leadership of special operations forces in Iraq and Afghanistan unquestionably saved the lives of thousands of American and allied troops, as well as countless civilians. No general I know has given more in the service of this country.”
That hasn’t stopped Donald Trump from doing just that in the past, even though his sole military experience during Vietnam consisted of his father Fred allegedly corrupting a pair of podiatrists in Queens to diagnose his healthy son with bone spurs. One of Trump’s bought off doctors even operated out of a storefront below one of Trump’s racially segregated apartment buildings.
Just two months ago, Trump hurled the only insult he seems to consistently apply to the US military’s best commanders, which is smearing them as Democrats.
Trump made that same false statement about former Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis who resigned in protest late last month over his decision to pull out of Syria as a favor to Turkey’s authoritarian President Erdogan, who wants to crush America’s allies in the region, the Rojavan Kurds and their burgeoning multi-ethnic democracy in northeastern Syria.
The President has consistently proven that he’s not fit to be Commander in Chief of America’s military forces, but he’s running into a wall of facts that can’t be overcome with lies by going after retired leaders who know something about combat when all Trump knows is “his own personal Vietnam,” — which was having unprotected sex with so many women he was scared he was going to get an STD.
