As Twitchy told you, Katie Pavlich took some snark from some people for saying that special forces operatives and Navy SEALs were unable to breach border wall prototypes — an assertion that, as it turned out, was backed up by reports. But perhaps the nastiest swipe came from Bill Kristol:
Fox in the old days: We’re proud of our military, they deserve the best equipment.
Fox nowadays: Let’s denigrate our military for the sake of promoting Trump’s WALL. https://t.co/zGNwT0j32I

Is it just us, or is he hell-bent on destroying what’s left of his conservative credibility?

Pavlich was rightfully disgusted, and she fired back:
Here’s the story, @billkristol. What the hell happened to you? I’m denigrating the military? I come from a long line of proud military service to this country. How dare you. https://t.co/6w1bUir1Ug https://t.co/bj3nYrJGQO

Pavlich is more than capable of sticking up for herself, but for what it’s worth, she’s got plenty of people in her corner:
Wtf are you talking about?

You actually think @KatiePavlich would denigrate the military, regardless of what network she is on? Your zeal to find nefarious “facts” to tweet about every hour has you grasping at straw. NOBODY who ever served would find anything denigrating about facts.

I've never seen @KatiePavlich be anything BUT respectful of our military.

Go Katie! @BillKristol has lost the plot!

You got a problem Bud. You’re losing your mind

Are you literally demented now, Bill? Have you had a stroke? To think I used to find you insightful. Your hatred of Trump has addled your brain.

He's completely lost it…his twitter strategy is just a constant barrage of snarky comments aimed at ordinary Americans that don't happen to agree with him…really can't understand what he's thinking…about a year ago, I thought is was just below him…now I think he's lost it

Seriously Bill? Time for you to ride off into the sunset.

At this point, that’s probably not a bad idea. Seems that his days as an elder statesman of conservatism are quickly drawing to a close.
