Stanley McChrystal Calls Trump’s Morals Into Question, Pat Tillman Unavailable For Comment

Stanley McChrystal, the general who was summarily fired by Obama, had things to say this morning. Suddenly, now that Mattis is out and everyone is wondering who will be nominated for Sec Def, McChrystal is suddenly a leading expert on Trump and foreign policy.

Retired four-star Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal said there is no way he could work for an “immoral” person like President Trump.

The former top commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan was asked if he would accept a job in the Trump administration during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” that aired Sunday.

“I’d say no. It’s important for me to work for people I think are basically honest, who tell the truth as best they know it,” he replied.

Yes folks, he really said that. If he is angling for a job in the Trump Administration I’d say he just shot himself in the keister with that one. If he’s trying to angle for a job in 2020 (if a Democrat is elected) I’d say his chances just increased exponentially.

His portion of the interview starts about 20 minutes in.

Not only does McChrystal think Trump is immoral, he infers that Trump is a liar.

Host Martha Raddatz also asked if he believes Trump is “a liar.”

“I don’t think he tells the truth,” he replied.

Of course, the Democrats are jumping up and down with glee on this.

‘Basically honest??!!’ McChrystal’s track record of leadership and truthfulness is… crappy.

The general taking over the Afghan war said Tuesday he was sorry for the coverup of ex-NFL star Pat Tillman’s friendly fire death.
“I was a part of that, and I apologize for it,” Army Lt. Gen. Stanley McChrystal told a Senate hearing.

It took 6 attempts at gaining the truth for McChrystal and the rest to own up to their responsibility for covering up what truly happened to Pat Tillman. SIX attempts.

So why should we believe Stanley McChrystal now? Honestly, I find what he has to say very suspect. However, he did get one thing right. ISIS may be somewhat defeated in Syria, but they are still very much a threat. That, IMO, is about the ONLY thing he got right during the interview.

McChrystal is all about leadership. Yet, when it was absolutely crucial to be a leader and do the right thing in regards to Pat Tillman, he …didn’t.

That is why this writer is less than impressed with his oh so principled stand against Trump.

    Unprincipled opportunists. That’s what lefties are. There are no guiding principles other than those that aid them in increasing their power in the moment. People, ideas, morals, and relationships are all negotiable items. Mere resources to be exploited in order to advance their cause. Its sickening that someone who served in the armed forces as long as this stooge did turns out to be as unremarkable and common as the spoiled brats hiding behind their antifa hoods.

    . . .
    I believe Gen. McChrystal is being hypocritical by casting stones at President Trump for not “tell[ing] the truth as best they know it.” In his own past, McChrystal was also “openly disingenuous on things” such as his key role in the 2004 whitewash of Pat Tillman’s friendly-fire death and in his response to Micheal Hasting’s 2010 Rolling Stone profile that got him fired (see 2014 Feral Firefighter blog posts “Defend Your Integrity,” “Never Shall I Fail My Comrades,” “Something to Die For,” or pp. 47 – 55 of “More Lies Borne Out by Facts, If Not the Truth”).

    The President is his Commander in Chief. Trump should already have his loyalty. Failure to be loyal is a violation of his oath and, therefore, immoral
