Retired U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal endorsed Joe Biden for president.

The former commander of Joint Special Operations Command appeared Thursday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and officially backed the former vice president he was fired for criticizing in 2010.

“Anyone we chose will make mistakes, that’s for sure,” McChrystal said. “But the reality is if we pick for character, values, we’ll be best off.”

McChrystal and his staff mocked Biden and other civilian government officials in a Rolling Stone article written by the late journalist Michael Hastings, but the retired general said he respected the former vice president as a man and a leader.

“Kayleigh McEnany presenting Lesley Stahl (@60Minutes) with some of the many things we’ve done for Healthcare. Lesley had no idea!” the president tweeted.

However, many Twitter users noticed that one photograph showed Stahl opening the binder – revealing a blank page.

"Are there Nobel prizes for most humiliating self-owns? If so, Trump definitely deserves one for presenting Lesley Stahl with a blank book and claiming it's some huge gotcha moment," remarked author Steve Silberman.

Here’s how The Christian Post ‘sold its soul’ to Trump — according to its former politics editor

Published

Political analyst Napp Nazworth watched as The Christian Post (CP) made its "gradual descent" from being anti-Trump to pro-Trump, often questioning whether or not he should jump ship from the publication. But what happened on Dec. 23, 2019, made the decision painfully clear.

"I was told by Michelle Vu, my boss at The Christian Post, to publish a pro-Trump op-ed as an editorial, meaning it was to express the position of the media organization," Nazworth wrote at Arc Digital. "'It can’t be an editorial,' I explained, 'because I don’t agree with it and I’m an editor.' Vu said she would call me back."
