The House Armed Services Committee held a hearing with the top Pentagon brass on Wednesday. The purpose was ostensibly to get more information about the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan after twenty years of of conflict. However, as is often the case, some of the members of the committee were only there to malign President Biden, the American military, and its leaders.
For reasons that are inconceivable, Matt Gaetz (FL-QAnon) is a member of the committee, despite having no military experience or education whatsoever. And as a confirmed ultra-partisan bomb thrower, he spent his allotted time making baseless accusations and impotent insults and threats.
In the process of his pitifully uninformed ranting, Gaetz demonstrated just what a buffoon he is, and what an embarrassment to the Congress and the district he supposedly represents (when he isn’t off on pathetic political junkets with his BFF Marjorie Taylor Green). Gaetz, a trust fund baby who never served, scolded Gen. Mark Milley, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, saying that…
“You said yesterday that you weren’t gonna resign when senators asked you this question. And I believe you guys probably won’t resign. You seem to be very happy failing up over there. But if we didn’t have a president that was so addled, you all would be fired. Because that is what you deserve. You have let down people who wear the uniform in my district and all around the country and you’re far more interested in what your perception is and how people think about you in insider Washington books than you care about winning.”

A congressman who is currently under investigation for sex trafficking and soliciting of a minor probably shouldn’t be calling for the resignations of others. That’s particularly true when he has no foundation for making such an audacious demand.
However, in his harangue Gaetz appears to be oblivious to the attack he’s making on his messiah and mentor, Donald Trump. By asserting that Milley would have been fired “if we didn’t have a president that was so addled,” Gaetz is actually agreeing with all of those who have observed that Trump is dangerously crazy. That’s because it was Trump who promoted Milley to the chairmanship of the Joint Chiefs of Staff back in December of 2018. He was confirmed by the GOP led Senate on a bipartisan vote of 89 to 1 (Jeff Merkley, a Democrat, was the sole “no” vote). Milley then served in that role for the remaining two years of Trump’s presidency, and continues under Biden.
So if anyone deserves the “blame” for Milley’s service, it’s Trump. And according to Gaetz, Trump was too addled to fire him. What’s more, Gaetz’s assertion that Milley was more interested in his perception is pure projection on Gaetz’s part. He was a whore to Fox News for most of his brief tenure in congress. Although that seems to have come to an end since the breaking of his sex scandal. Apparently Gaetz is now even too toxic for Fox News.
Despite having been “cancelled” by Fox News, Gaetz is still sucking up to the network and its biggest stars. Recently Gaetz embraced Tucker Carlson and his racist “Great White Replacement” theory, saying that Carlson was “correct” and that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), who called for Fox to fire Carlson, were the racists. It makes you wonder who it is that is really addled, doesn’t it?
