With excerpts of the latest book from Bob Woodward and Robert Costa making headlines, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump had to find the nearest right-wing media outlet and vent his spleen, suggesting that Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley is a “traitor” and predicting that the United States will end in three years time.
Appearing on Sean Spicer’s evening Newsmax show, Trump began by whining that “our country has gone really downhill in the last eight months like nobody’s ever seen before.”
Actually, our country has never been stronger. The economy is doing great, more Americans are getting vaccinated for COVID, and the United States is once again respected and admired because we have a stable, caring person in the White House.
Trump then made his prediction of what he thinks will happen in the near future:
The election was not rigged, and there isn’t a shred of evidence to suggest otherwise. Trump is just upset he lost by a huge margin and is now facing indictment and imprisonment on any number of crimes.
And then there was the matter of Gen. Milley, who, according to Woodward and Costa, assured his Chinese counterpart the U.S. would not launch a surprise strike on China during Trump’s final days in office:
“General Li, you and I have known each other for now five years. If we’re going to attack, I’m going to call you ahead of time. It’s not going to be a surprise.”
According to Trump, if that’s true, it’s “treason.” Coming from an alleged traitor, that’s pretty damn rich.
The failed ex-president then added:
Why is Trump so upset? Because he knows every word of the new book is true and it shows what a sick, twisted, insane little man he is.
