Retired General Blasts Remaining Trump Loyalists on CNN: ‘Stop Listening to the Pillow Guy!’ [VIDEO]

One of the three retired generals who contributed to an op-ed for the Washington Post warning of a possible military coup in 2024 if there is a contested presidential election result appeared on CNN and slammed Donald Trump’s supporters for maintaining the belief that the election was stolen.

While openly admitting that he’s a “lifelong conservative,” Gen. (Ret) Steven M. Anderson told host Pamela Brown that he’s seriously worried about a Trump-inspired military takeover, and specifically called out MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell as an example of someone Trump’s base needs to ignore. “Stop listening to the pillow guy,” Gen. Anderson said at one point during his rant.

Gen. Anderson explained how Trump was able to capitalize on the people who probably hadn’t paid much attention to politics prior to his entering the presidential race in 2015 and turned it into a reality show they could all be a part of. “We’ve got some people that just haven’t been educated, they haven’t been found out, and they’ve grown empowered through, perhaps, inaction on the parts of some of our key leaders,” Gen. Anderson said.

“What we can do now is identify those people, get them out of our ranks, and train the rest of the force on Civics 101,” Gen. Anderson continued. “About how our country is supposed to work, how elections work, stop listening to the pillow guy and start learning about our country and how it’s actually supposed to run.”

“Really quickly, just walk us through your concern about this partisan divide and how it could impact the chain of command, and why that is so concerning to you, in terms of preventing another coup attempt potentially in 2024,” host Pamela Brown asked.

“Well, the big problem here is allegiance to the Constitution, versus allegiance to a leader,” Gen. Anderson replieed. “In this case, a cult-like figure like Trump. There’s a lot of people in uniform that are confused about that. They think the president is something like a king, and he’s not. You know, we swore an oath to the Constitution. That’s how our soldiers, sailors, and Marines need to act. We’re concerned that there’s so much activity within the military that shows that people are ignorant of what our Constitution is really all about and they have responded to people like Trump. And when he tells them to jump, they’re probably willing to do that.”
