General David Petraeus appeared with Clinton sycophant George Stephanopoulos on ABC This Week this Sunday morning. The appearance was called his final audition for Secretary of State in the coming Donald Trump administration. It was a sad fail for the disgraced General and former CIA chief.
I held my nose to watch the ABC program hosted by Stephanopoulos. I was once a huge fan of General Petraeus. I was sad to learn that he had feet of clay, but hoped that there was some explanation. Not that there is any credible explanation for sharing government information with your side dish.

Real classy. Apparently, here’s what Paula Broadwell, the biographer and outed Petraeus mistress, reportedly said in harassing emails – using a handful of dummy email addresses, mind…
