When one of the most celebrated four-star generals, Barry McCaffrey, publicly disses a sitting president, it speaks volumes about the state of the Commander-in-Chief and the presidency itself.
General Barry McCaffrey scathing comment about Donald Trump

General Barry McCaffrey made a statement about the president that while measured was piercing and given his stature is likely to affect many. The general tweeted the following.
Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin.
The Hill reported it as follows.
Trump has come under fire for his response to Russian interference in the U.S. election. The president has repeatedly hit the probe into Russia’s election meddling as a “witch hunt.” His administration unveiled new sanctions against Russian cyber groups involved in election meddling on Thursday, including individuals and groups charged with election interference by special counsel Robert Mueller.
However, Trump had been criticized for not implementing sanctions against Russia earlier, after Congress passed a bipartisan bill last year giving him the power to do so. U.S. Cyber Command chief and National Security Agency Director Adm. Michael Rogers testified before the Senate last month that he hadn’t received instructions from Trump to take additional steps to deter Russian cyberattacks aimed at U.S. elections.
Trump supporters are you listening? No one should be voting for any politician that is overtly supporting Trump or implicitly supporting him with their silence. The national security of the United States is at risk by this rogue actor. I’ve said it over and over again. Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to America. The sooner more citizens see this the better it will be for the nation.
