How the Generals Saved us From a Wannabe Dictator
We begin as more and more information comes out in books about what went on in the Oval Office during Trump’s ruinous four years in office, with how the generals saved America from a dangerous, divisive and demented civilian government. Joining us is Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, the former Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell to discuss how close we came to an insurrection on January the 6th which proved there is no such thing as a “deep state” otherwise it would not have happened. But nevertheless Generals Milley, Mattis, Kelly and McMaster apparently saved us almost on a daily basis from the reckless and insane impulses of a dangerous ignoramus who got even more out of control when he lost the election then refused to accept the results. Unfortunately the threat has not gone away as the Republican party and its craven leaders still are in lockstep behind their fuhrer.
