President Donald Trump has been cooped up in the White House as the government shutdown continues. With no end in sight, Trump has tweeted attacks towards Democrats and retired generals.


On Tuesday, CNN's Panel Browns's panel bashed Trump as "deplorable" after he attacked four-star Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal.

While interviewing with ABC's Martha Raddatz, McChrystal said he would never join Trump's team because he is immoral.

"I think it is important for me to work with people who are basically honest," he said.

Trump responded to McChrystal criticism on Twitter.

Republican strategist Dough Hey and Democratic strategist David Jacobson said that Trump, who claims to love the armed services, should not be attacking retired generals.

"Clearly, Donald Trump is a fan of people who are Donald Trump fans. That's no surprise. Folks talk about how Donald Trump is a counter-puncher. He never misses a chance to punch below his weight. You are the leader of the free world, it's not a good policy," Heye said.

"It's deplorable, reckless and unbecoming of a president of the United States. These are decorated war heroes who risked their lives for our country. Donald Trump shouldn't be talking about decorated military vets when he deferred from the draft," Jacobson said.
