Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense under both President Ford and President George W. Bush, reminisced a bit today. The article he tweeted out has photographs of politicians when they were in high school. Secretary Rumsfeld, ever good-humored, joked about the passage of time as he nears his 80th birthday.
Predictably, Twitter leftists responded to that with nasty hate.
Of an Arab being tortured?! RT @RumsfeldOffice: With my 80th birthday this week, I can’t say that photo “seems like only yesterday.”
