Donald Trump fired the Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. Immediately after, he replaced over 20 Pentagon officials with Fox News shills. Now, why would he do that? Is he up to something sinister?
We expected POTUS to replace FBI Director Christopher Wray and CIA Director Gina Haspel. His wholesale dispensing with key Pentagon officials was a surprise, though.
Trump uncharacteristically remained virtually silent since his great loss. There have been a few desolate tweets, but no public appearances. Maybe, he decided to retire early to Mar-a-Lago? Is he rejecting being fired and left with no ammunition? Or is he up to something more deadly?
Democrats were alarmed by the developments, according to CNN. House Armed Services Chairman Adam Smith (D-WA) released a statement Tuesday that read:
‘It is hard to overstate just how dangerous high-level turnover at the Department of Defense is during a period of presidential transition. The top policy professional in the Department resigning the day after the Secretary of Defense was fired could mark the beginning of a process of gutting the DoD — something that should alarm all Americans.’
Trump tweeted out more delusional ideas. He sounded as if he had won the 2020 election:
‘The Fake Pollsters at @ABC @washingtonpost produced a possibly illegal suppression Poll just before the Election showing me down 17 points in Wisconsin when, in fact, on Election Day, the race was even – & we are now preparing to win the state. Many such “deplorable” instances!’
‘Richard Hopkins, Pennsylvania (sic) postal worker, recants ballot-tampering claim – Washington Times washingtontimes.com/news/2020/nov/ Stays with the truth, his original story.’
‘A guy named Al Schmidt, a Philadelphia Commissioner and so-called Republican (RINO), is being used big time by the Fake News Media to explain how honest things were with respect to the Election in Philadelphia. He refuses to look at a mountain of corruption & dishonesty. We win!’
Twitter world went crazy when Trump starting tweeting. Check out some of our favorites below:
