Loyalty, Above All, to the Constitution

Army Gen. Mark Milley, the nation’s top military officer, said Thursday he was wrong to accompany President Donald Trump on a walk through Lafayette Square that ended in a photo op at a church. He said his presence in uniform amid protests over racial injustice “created a perception of the military involved in domestic politics.”
...
“We must hold dear the principle of an apolitical military that is so deeply rooted in the very essence of our republic,” he said. “It takes time and work and effort, but it may be the most important thing each and every one of us does every single day.”
That's going to torque off El Caudillo del Mar-a-Lago, who would make the military swear an oath of personal loyalty to him if he could get away with it. If he tried, even Lindsey Graham might desert him over it.

Nah. Who am I kidding?

General Milly’s career may have just been shortened by this comment/apology. Once Trump throws his tantrum, I would guess he’d ask for his resignation and replace him with a more “compatible” military toa**, er, officer.

Ich schwöre bei Gott diesen heiligen Eid,
daß ich dem Führer des Deutschen Reiches und Volkes
Adolf Hitler, dem Oberbefehlshaber der Wehrmacht,
unbedingten Gehorsam leisten und als tapferer Soldat bereit sein will,
jederzeit für diesen Eid mein Leben einzusetzen.

seafury, funny.
Also he's a democRat Deep State Crisis Actor from Antifa coming in busses to murder you and your family in your beds. Be very afraid. At all times. Like Dear Leader. Time to hunker down in the bunker until it's rascist night rally time in Oklahoma.

Tod, INSPECT the bunker, inspect!

I so hope that bunker has an excellent air conditioning and purifying system.
All those burgers must make him smell exceptionally foul when he sweats, and then there is the issue of his diapers.
I can imagine that the air in there gets thick enough to cut with a knife at times.

w3ski, for the same reason you should, I hope the systems are terrible. Anyone willing to stay at his side deserves it.
