Retired Army Lieutenant General Mark Hertling is not happy with Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in President Donald Trump’s White House.
Reports surfaced late Thursday that confirm previous allegations that Flynn previously spoke with Russian officials before taking office. Doing so broke several laws.
Lt. Gen. Hertling confessed that it “pained” him to discuss Flynn because they served as officers together.
“He has shown a complete disrespect for the office of the president,” Hertling said.
He explained that as soldiers they have an obligation to lead with integrity and right now he sees an “integrity crisis.”
“The problem with Mike Flynn right now, I see it in three ways, either he’s had an extreme case of the dumb ass, he thinks he was above the law, or there was an integrity violation,” Hertling continued. “All three of those things is something we don’t want in someone who’s working next to the most powerful man in the world. And too, we have a president, you know, we say in the military, ‘An organization takes its lead from the top. And it becomes like the leader.’ We have seen a loose association with integrity from the entire administration, as you have seen tonight with Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway and now Mike Flynn. So, I think we have some problems in this area.”

Calling the president of the United States an "idiot," longtime political observer Michael Tomasky admitted he was appalled by Donald Trump for not only downplaying the death toll from the COVID-19 pandemic but also for praising his own leadership during the national health crisis that is set to pass 200,000 deaths within days.
In his column for the Daily Beast, Tomasky pointed to comments the president made during a town hall on ABC about the pandemic that he claims showed the president wants nothing more than to move on from talking about those who have died, calling Trump an "embarrassment" to himself.
