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.

CNN's Wolf Blitzer introduced Dale by recapping that, in his opinion, "clearly this debate was an embarrassment for the United States of America -- a clear embarrassment."

"How much was fact?" Blitzer asked. "How much was false?"

"Well, it depended Wolf on who we were listening to," Dale replied.

"I think it's important for us as journalists to say when both sides are not alike -- and they were not alike tonight," he explained.

Jake Tapper stunned by Trump’s debate: ‘That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck’

CNN Jake Tapper reacted in shock on Tuesday following the first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump.

"That was a hot mess inside a dumpster fire inside a train wreck," Tapper said. "That was the worst debate I have ever seen. In fact, it wasn't even a debate. It was a disgrace."

"And it's primarily because of President Trump," he remarked, "who spent the entire time interrupting, not abiding by the rules that he agreed to, lying, maliciously attacking the son of the vice president. When asked to condemn white supremacists, he brought up the name of a neo-fascist, far-right group and said, 'Stand back and stand by.'"
