Tucker Carlson: Our military has been lying to us for 20 years

8 187 1279

Fox News host explains what the Left really means when they say 'adults' are back in charge after Biden was elected and compares that statement to his administration's failures on 'Tucker Carlson Tonight'

In July of 2017, every member of the joint chiefs of staff met with newly-elected President Donald Trump for the first time. It didn't go well. "You're all losers," the president told them, according to Foreign Policy magazine account. "You don't know how to win anymore."

It was a harsh assessment, obviously though arguably true, the joint chiefs of staff are the nation's highest-ranking military officers. Their job is to follow the order of elected officials and protect the country, no matter how much their feelings may be hurt. But in this case, that's not what happened because the rules are different now. According to U.S. Army Major General Paul Eaten, the president's insults that day, and the similar comments he made in public, were a bitter humiliation for the nation's military leaders. They made it their mission to undermine civilian control of the Pentagon ever after. "I was really shocked by how many of my former colleagues voted for the former president and openly supported him," Eaten said. "But when [Trump] turned on the military, well, the military turned on him."


Keep in mind, that is not how democracy is supposed to work—military leaders report to the people you elect. Again that’s not what happened. Stories began leaking about the president, President Trump, ignoring classified intelligence about Russian bounties in Afghanistan. Where do you think those stories came from? They came from the Pentagon—it was payback. Then the military refused to pull troops out of Syria and Afghanistan, even though they were ordered to do so by the elected president of the United States—again no civilian control of the military. When Joe Biden finally became president, on inauguration day, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, Mark Milley, was so excited he couldn’t control himself. "No one has a bigger smile today than I do," Milley told Michelle Obama—sucking up like a child. "You can’t see it under my mask, but I do." The media people who have supported Biden from the very beginning -- including a former C.I.A. Director, there are many of those on TV these days -- also celebrated. They told us the adults were back in charge, they said. The orange man is gone—everything is going to be better now:

DANA BASH: Anybody who has any connection to reality about what is going on around them should have watched that and said, ‘The adults are back in the room" CORNELL BELCHER: It seems as though we have an adult in the White House who is simply doing the work FARED ZAKARIA: Really the theme I would say is that the adults are back JEMELE HILL: Still it is a relief to have adults in charge JOHN BRENNAN: Now we have adults in the White House DON LEMON: Okay, the adults are back in the room NICOLLE WALLACE: There is a sense, I think the world over, that the adults have returned JONATHAN CAPEHART: Now we have an adult in the White House........
