The real reason Trump is furious with General Milley.

Trump believes in surprise attack, even in nuclear war, especially if he sees advantage to him in being a "wartime president," and he thinks Milley betrayed him personally (not the country). I think it was in the first year of Trump's reign, or even right before the election, he was having a sit-down interview, and he was asked a question about attacking another country. There has been no very much outrage in the last 5 years I don't remember the exact details or the interviewer, but Trump conversationally but seriously refused to say what he would do because he doesn't believe in giving the other side any advantage in knowing what to expect from him. I said to whoever I was with and said, "he believes in a surprise first strike and he's the decider." They poo poo'd it saying no one would let him do that, but I think we almost did.

The fact that right now our military leaders have informal contact with their counterparts to help avoid misunderstandings probably hadn't occurred to Trump because everything is zero sum to him, I win, you lose. To find this out months later really burns him and if he could, he'd have Milley shot by a firing squad because he takes it personally.

What's this obsession among Repubs about Biden being "cut off"

By somebody with a button in the White House? I had not seen this before. All of a sudden this senator is absolutely obsessed with it during Blinkin testimony. Is this new or is this part of the obsession that Biden isn't smart enough to talk. He spent a good deal of his beginning statement and some of his questioning addressing how the other day Biden was cut off in mid sentence by a button. Is this already a meme or is he trying to start something. To me, he's the one coming off sounding stupid. Anybody who thinks Biden has handlers who can control Biden has not paying attention or is trying to make us forget the years when he was VP and how they mercilessly criticized his "gaffes." That's just the way Joe talks.
