Back in December of 2018, Donald Trump made Mark Milley the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. And the general did his best to reign the former president in. This included creating plans in case Trump began a war in a desperate attempt to stay in office.
Of course, this has enraged Trump loyalists who claim that Milley committed treason. During his Thursday show, Joe Scarborough ripped into these snowflake Republicans and opined on the real reason why they’re on attack against the general.
The Morning Joe host told his audience:
“They’re little snowflakes that melted when Gen. Milley went to the Hill and actually said he read a book on critical race [theory] — they just melted. These little snowflakes so delicate and so pure, they’re so natural and their mothers told them and their fathers told them, every one of you, every one of you is separate and different, there’s no one snowflake like another. Yet all of these snowflakes on the Republican side, they’re alike in one way. They’re all melting because Gen. Milley said the words ‘critical race theory’ and said, yeah, I’ve read about it, good to know that — but Marxism! — I’ve read about it, and they still, they’re still in a freak-out mode, and here this guy takes steps to defend America, to let China know that we’re just fine, don’t take advantage of this situation, and now they’re saying he’s treasonist?”
