We’re learning all sorts of things today. We just recently learned that the Berklee College of Music issued an apology for letting police officers use the restrooms there during the George Floyd protests. The Dallas Police Department has released a video montage of officers taking a knee with protesters and ends with the police chief taking a knee on camera. And now we’re learning that a general who became part of President Trump’s photo-op at St. John’s Church has issued a video apology, saying it was a mistake to have been there and mixed the military with the political.
Tell us this doesn’t look like a hostage video:

You job is to support your Commander in Chief!!!! This is against the Uniform Military Code.
He needs to be replaced.

That’s insubordination and you should know better.

I'll be waiting for an apology from all the National Guard leaders who took a knee.

Is he a holdover? When I was in the military I thought political statements while in uniform were a no-no

Bring Gen. Flynn out of retirement. Promote him to a 4 star and then to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

If he had an attack of conscience and felt his presence there was inappropriate due to his position, he should have told his boss (POTUS) and either resigned or clammed up, not run to the press. That's military professionalism.

Are all the generals now communists?

He’s a wuss. Imagine getting that far up the food chain and still being afraid of what irrelevant people are saying about you. Wouldn’t want him in a fire with me.
— Tim Towner (@towner_tim) June 11, 2020
Don’t fire him. DEMOTE HIM TO BUCK PRIVATE. THEN FIRE HIM. GOTTA MAKE IT HURT.

So, he’s saying it shouldn’t have looked like the military had taken sides with the president against arsonists who tried to burn down a church on Lafayette Square during a riot?
