Once again we find out that Gen Mark Milley committed treason or close to treason. After the January 6th altercation, Milley decided that Trump had gone crazy and he took steps to limit Trump’s power to launch a nuclear attack.
I wasn’t aware that Milley was a board-certified psychologist, were you? Personally, I think Milley was suffering from delusions of grandeur. Somehow, he convinced himself that he was the president and not Trump.
How many times have we seen stories like this unfold? “Trump is going to lead a coup.” “Trump is planning an insurrection.” “Trump is going to stay in a war to keep his office.”
Of course, none of those things happened and even if they did, Trump would still have to leave. Milley gave orders that Trump should not be allowed to launch nukes without his permission.
Since when can someone overrule a president or require his permission to do his job? Trump was never going to launch nukes.
The new account is detailed in the forthcoming book “Peril” written by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa of the WaPo. This was first reported by CNN. The book claims that Milley singlehandedly blocked the president from launching nukes he never intended to launch in the first place.
This is like the time I stopped my cousin Abbie Normel from setting T-Rex traps at the local park. Abbie never even had the traps, which belong to me, and that I had well hidden to keep her away from them.
Milley was reportedly “deeply shaken by the assault, ‘was certain that Trump had gone into a serious mental decline in the aftermath of the election, with Trump now all but manic, screaming at officials and constructing his own alternate reality about endless election conspiracies.”
The top general told aides that he was afraid Trump would “go rogue,” adding, “You never know what a president’s trigger point is.”
He reportedly told aides not to take orders from anyone unless he was involved.
The authors also say that Milley “felt no absolute certainty that the military could control or trust Trump and believed it was his job as the senior military officer to think the unthinkable and take any and all necessary precautions.”
