Trump’s Pentagon chief stuns reporters with ‘incoherent briefing’ in which he declares ‘I cannot wait to leave’


Reporters were stunned on Friday following a bizarre gaggle that acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller held with the press.

"I so…I mean, I cannot wait to leave this job, believe me," Miller said.

Stephen Losey of the Air Force Times described it as "the most epic case of senioritis ever."


"Gobsmacking incoherent briefing from the US acting defence secretary, Chris Miller, today," Julian Borger, the world affairs editor for the Guardian, reported....................

1. Perhaps all of the senior Trumpist leaders are on a drunken binge

reminiscent of the portrayal of the drunken rowdiness shown in the final Bunker days of the 3rd Reich in Downfall.
The end is near, retribution is coming, and the only place to hide is in a bottle.

Maybe someone can teach Trump how to drink this weekend. I would love to hear him sloshed, slobbering on the tablecloth while he rants. Cheers Donnie!

2. As #2 in charge of the military...


he bears direct responsibility for preventing the National Guard from defending the Capitol building. He needs to go ASAP.

5. This asshole repeatedly refused to deploy the National Guard when the Capitol was under siege

And gave an express directive to seek his approval for any deployment, right before the attempted coup. Circumstantial evidence pointing to a conspiracy.

He needs to be investigated and possibly charged.

7. I would be shocked if we dont learn

we have been on the cusp of war or collapse since 2017. We were only lucky that some one off stayed committed to the job.

I doubt the news is going to get any better in the next few months.

9. Are most of these people drinking or on drugs?

They just babble incoherently and make no sense.
And make outrageous comments.

20. It's More Than That

This guy knows that he's toast. He failed Trump in the coup attempt by only delaying the deployment of troops by 3 hours. He knows that we know what he did. He also knows that Trump will not pardon him -- as he's dead to him already as he's no longer useful. So the guy decided he might as well get drunk out of his mind for the next week -- until he is arrested by the FBI and hauled off in handcuffs sometime later this month. He knows it's coming and he can't believe it's going to happen.

23. I saw him on his first day at the Pentagon

walk up the stairs, trip, almost fall, and then TAKE OFF HIS MASK JUST BEFORE WALKING INTO THE BUILDING.

That was all I needed to know about the guy.
