Trump Calls Decorated Retired General A “Dog” After Criticism Of His Decisions

I have long been critical of the attacks of President Donald Trump against critics and the media as unpresidential and inimical to our values. This week has another disturbing example of such personal attacks when Trump responded to criticism by retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal by calling him a “dog” who was fired by President Barack Obama. Being President of the United States will always come with an abundance of critics but the office comes with a modicum of expected restraint and decorum. Calling former generals (or anyone) “dogs” is clearly well below the expectations of most people in the conduct of a president.

McChrystal is the former top commander in Afghanistan. A West Point graduate, he served in both Iraq wars. Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates described McChrystal as “perhaps the finest warrior and leader of men in combat I ever met.” He was not without controversy. He was accused of covering up the death of Pat Tillman in a friendly fire incident. He was also fired after making critical remarks about Vice President Joe Biden and other administration officials in a Rolling Stone article.

Laura Ingraham’s website Lifezette had a piece entitled “Media Didn’t Like McChrystal Until He Started Bashing Trump.” It raises a valid threshold issue that McChrystal only garnered this level of support when he was criticizing Trump rather than Obama. However, his criticism of Trump’s move to withdraw from Syria and other countries in “basically trad[ing] away the biggest leverage point we have.” That criticism has been shared by a wide range of critics. He does go further in calling Trump “immoral,” though that is also a wide spread characterization.

I can understand Trump responding but I fail to see why it must be in such this fashion, including tweeting the Ingraham posting. However, Trump tweeted Tuesday morning that “‘General’ McChrystal got fired like a dog by Obama. Last assignment a total bust. Known for big, dumb mouth. Hillary lover!”

This is not the first time the President has called critics “dogs” or made personal attacks against those who oppose him. It clearly resonates with an element of his base but only drives a wedge deeper between the GOP and independents. I simply fail to understand why the President continues to yield to such impulse on social media. It only heightened the coverage of McChrystal’s remarks and reinforced his criticism. Many citizens believe that a president must represent the values and civility that we try to instill in our children and try follow in our own lives.

  1. If one were to read, Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman, a biography of Pat Tillman written in 2009 by Jon Krakauer, one would understand that Mr. Tillman ‘s death was not the result of so-called “friendly fire.”
    Mr. Tillman was murdered.

    The evidence of murder includes, but is not limited to, the pathologist, a high ranking military officer, refused to sign the “Death Certificate”, ( which means that the military officer formed the opinion that the was sufficient evidence of “foul play” ) Mr. Tillman’s military uniform and accoutrements were burned and more than one A.A.R.s ( after action review ) was falsified.

    Such evidence is not proffered for those killed in friendly fire. This evidence and other evidence Mr. Krakauer sets forth leads a reasonable person to the inescapable conclusion Mr. Tillman was murdered.

    Governments lie; that’s what Governments do.

    I did not vote for Donald J. Trump for President, nor could I ever. I have not voted for a Republican or Democrat since McGovern v. Nixon.

    President Trump was elected President because there are not two parties, but one. Historically, it was: “Me too, but less!” Modernly, it is: “Me too, but more.”

    One example, President Trump wanted a 50 billion dollar increase in the “defense budget.” Over 60 percent of the elected Democrats voted for more. The defense budget was increased to 70 or 74 billion, which increase is more than Russia spends on its entire defense.

    The United States deficit is now approximately 1 trillion F.R.N.s annually and its ( our ) debt is 21.7 trillion.

    President Trump won because the pubic understands and accepts, but does not agree with, the fact “America” presently exists as a Oligarchic, Monopolistic, Kelptocrazy.

    Yes, Trump was and is an Oligarch. But, the Oligarchy attacks him because as a Candidate and as President Trump says, “Don’t ignore the man behind the current.”

    Is or will President Trump be different? Is or will this time be different?

    Myths and Legends do not die in America; they become Truth, Justice and The American Way.

    The so-called “Great Recession” was caused by lawlessness; lawlessness over debt. The lawlessness was system wide because of the false premise: “You be gone; I be gone.” ( In laypersons terms, the lending “person” and the borrowing “person” would both be gone. The debt would be someone else’s debt. )

    When I was in the U.S. Attorneys Office during the Savings And Loan crisis, the U.S. Attorneys ( not my division ) charged, tried and jailed hundreds of persons who violated the law. How many persons banking, lending, underwriting, appraising, finance, insurance and real estate “persons” were charged, tried and jailed.

    Collateral Consequences?

    As I have mentioned before, the professor is an Oligarch. The professor preserves, protects and defends the Oligarchic, Monopolistic, Kelptocrazy because it is his master.

    The debt will be paid; must be paid … ultimately.

    1. Mr. Tillman was murdered.

      I see Bill McWilliams has a competitor here.

  2. It’s cool when American Idol judge Randy Jackson calls people “Dawg.” Maybe if Trump spelled it “dawg” intead of “dog” it would work better for him?

  3. “Trump Calls Decorated Retired General A “Dog” After Criticism Of His Decisions”

    – Professor Turley

    “‘General’ McChrystal got fired like a dog by Obama”

    – President Trump.

    McChrystal criticized and held in disdain Obama, Biden and their liberal allies and sycophants.

    Obama fired him, not for ineffectiveness, but out of covetous envy, spite and animus for his correct, logical and rational private political views.

    President Trump’s statement is about the arrogant abusive treatment of a legitimate Army General by an eminently ineligible, fraudulent occupant of the White House who was corruptly ensconced by the “deep state.”

    Professor Turley owes President Trump a public apology for gross and malicious misrepresentation.

  4. Come on! The President said he “was fired like a dog” by Obama. This is exactly why Americans complain of fake news, it is all about spin not just fake!

    1. That’s exactly right James. He didn’t say “he was fired like the dog he was.” He was characterizing the way Obama handled getting rid of him.

  5. Colonel Kurtz: “We train young men to drop fire on people, but their commanders won’t allow them to write ‘fuck’ on their airplanes because it’s obscene!”

    1. Darren…..I agree. And this is what I don’t get.: The Left feels it’s acceptable to heap crass, cruel and defamatory remarks upon Trump because he’s the president. But they feel that HE should not heap crass, cruel and defamatory remarks on them………because he’s the president. Huh?

  6. Maybe someone will get word to Trump most Dogs are pretty good, it’s some of them have bad owners.

    Calling retired Gen. McChrystal a dog is an insult to dogs.

    McChrystal has shown himself to be another Commie/Nazi Anti-American Hating piece of Trash.

    Why, because he Swore an Oath to Protect & Defend the USC against Foreign & Domestic & then the piece of crap turns Domesic Enemy & works to Attack us, the USA!

    The SOB would deny all American the Right to Own Defensive AR 15 & other weapons just as 3rd world dictators have done through history.

    “Kurt Nimmo
    January 9, 2012
    Retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal threw his weight behind the government effort to rollback the Second Amendment on Tuesday.

    “I spent a career carrying typically either a M16, and later a M4 carbine,” McChrystal told MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “And a M4 carbine fires a .223 caliber round, which is 5.56 millimeters, at about 3,000 feet per second. When it hits a human body, the effects are devastating. It’s designed to do that. That’s what our soldiers ought to carry.”
    “I personally don’t think there’s any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets and particularly around the schools in America. I believe that we’ve got to take a serious look — I understand everybody’s desire to have whatever they want — but we have to protect our children and our police and we have to protect our population. And I think we have to take a very mature look at that.”
    The unofficial don of the anti-Second Amendment movement, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, enthusiastically supported McChrystal’s call to disarm the American people. ”

  7. I don’t like the terms which dehumanize anyone being used by other people. To dehumanize is the way to form your and other people’s mind into obedient slaves who will kill others because they aren’t really human beings. This is prevalent in our society. I see it on this blog all the time and I see it everywhere else. I strongly suggest everyone stop doing this.

    At the same time we should not worship military “leadership”. There is a long list of atrocities committed by McChrystal and it is dangerous to revere such actions in any person. Just because someone holds or held a title, including president of the United States, is no reason to revere them. If we want to mindlessly worship war criminals and drug dealers, sure, continue the worship of such individuals. Otherwise, act like a real citizen and start speaking up about war and domestic crimes committed by the powerful be they civilian “leaders” or military. The obsequiousness towards the powerful is beneath a free citizen and allows dangerous, illegal behavior by them to continue w/out opposition.

    1. Worship certainly is the word for the dems target fixation and their blind lemming like penchant to adhere to “the mission” just because politicians whose personas are carefully created, crafted and developed to appeal to specific groups and agendas command it. In reality Obama, Clinton or Pelosi wouldn’t give the lemmings a drink of water in the desert if they owned the Deer Park Water Company.
      Josef Mengele was a brilliant doctor who cared for untold numbers of sick souls, won the Iron Cross First Class, the Medal for the Care of the German People and
      Black Badge for the Wounded. That didn’t give him license for or absolve him of the other things.

      1. A Trumpster like you is criticizing “dems” for “worshiping” President Obama and Nancy Pelosi? WTF? What “mission”, exactly, do “dems” adhere to? And who, exactly, are the “dems”? People who didn’t vote for Trump? People who, when polled, disapprove of him?

        Here’s some food for thought, assuming you Faux News disciples are capable of thinking beyond the daily slop served Hannity, Ingraham, Tucker, Coulter and Limbaugh: the majority of Americans oppose Donald J. Trump and the majority of those who voted did not vote for him. The majority of Americans have consistently disapproved of him and the job he has done for 2 years, which is historic. Barak and Michelle Obama were voted, in a Gallup Poll, as the most-admired man and woman, respectively. Most people approve of Nancy Pelosi, and can’t wait for her to kick The Donald’s ass. The majority of votes cast in November’s election went Democratic, and there would have been even more positions taken by the Democratic Party but for Republican gerrymandering. Therefore, are most Americans “dems”?

        When Hannity, et al, go on their rants, did you ever stop to think that they are criticizing MOST Americans? You Trumpsters are the outliers. You Trumpsters are the ones who engage in blind support of a man unfit by temperament and character to serve as POTUS.

        1. Anonymous,

          It’s very sad that people admire Obama, a man who tortured a child soldier in Gitmo, killed a 16 and 17 year old by drone on his own whim/order and bragged about it, and is a war criminal. This worship of a murderer is a terrible statement about our society. If you want to tell me why you admire a man who has done these things, I’d honestly like to know your thinking.

          1. I’m sorry, but please direct me to the video, the evidence, any proof that Barak Obama himself personally “tortured a child soldier in Gitmo”, or even that he approved of such a thing. Who was the “child soldier”? When did he go to Gitmo? Ditto for the 16 and 17 year olds he murdered on “whim”, and especially when he “bragged about it.”

            If you can’t produce proof, then admit you are a starry-eyed Trumpster who is willing to believe whatever racist garbage adverse to Obama put out by other Trumpsters. President Obama consistently objected to waterboarding and other torture instituted by his predecessors. President Obama wanted to close Gitmo, too, or did you forget this?

            Another thing: recognizing how incompetent and dangerous Trump is does not equate to “worship of a murderer”. Most Americans, and the world at large, for that matter, have a much higher opinion of Obama than Trump. However, overlooking all of Trump’s flaws, lack of leadership, emotional instability, refusal to follow sound advice and pandering to xenophobia, racism, misogyny and his immaturity does come close to worship.

            1. Natacha, honey, Barack Obama was a pot-smoking slacker, then a community agitator, and then briefly a state senator (look back at what he did to secure his “seat” in one of the most corrupt states in the nation.) And then he spent about 5 minutes as a US Senator before running for president.

              Please don’t lecture anyone about “competence” or “qualifications” for being the leader of the frickin’ free world. If ever there was someone ill-equipped, unqualified, and thin-skinned, it was Barack Obama, the community agitator, who survived his reelection because of the media, and ONLY because of the media’s sycophantic sucking up to him. Please. The entire WORLD knows this.

              Also, I believe it was Barack Obama himself, who told us he was “really good at killing people” as the “Drone Ranger” in chief. Remember that?

            2. “Anonymous” — I’m also wondering if you heard the news story about the Cleveland Clinic medical resident who threatened on social media to give Jewish patients the wrong medicine, and this same medical resident also happened to be a practicing Muslim? She was fired, but still holds a valid medical license in Ohio. Did you hear that one?


              Now, why do you think that is? Isn’t that kind of a scary and “newsworthy” story that deserves some media attention?

              1. Oh, and the reason for threatening to give Jewish patients the wrong medicine, was to kill them. Yes, a Muslim doctor threatened to kill the Jews in this way. Did you hear that “news” story?

        2. What mission? Why their mission to hear and obey the Democrat agenda and narrative without question at all costs, even that of their country their freedom and their childrens future of course.
          Who are Dems? The ones who have let leftists hijack the party and make it into a facist entity that is actively attacking The Constitution,The Rule of Law, The American People and trying to consolidate an ansolute power base that will let them unilaterally conduct their abuse of power unfettered without consequences.

          1. Awesome. I can the spittle flying out and splashing on your old-school monitor. Very nice. Pro tip: you’re late checking in with today’s Pravda Faux News talking points. Other wackjob goggle-eyed lemmings have already reported in on today’s breathless fantasy claims.

            This is to “that hannity feller shore is a looker, by golly” dawn

            1. How ‘elitist’ and condescending of you to mock someone’s “old-school monitor”…..what if that is all they can afford? Maybe they choose to use the library computer as a way of conserving and living ‘Green’?

              New Years is over. Why don’t you take off your Beer Goggles and go back to mommy’s basement where we all know you live. 😉

            2. I can see that your late checking in with the clinic for your dose of Haldol Mark.

          2. Dawn, Honey, what is “the Democrat agenda and narrative”? Opposing a 2,000-mile concrete wall that border security experts say is unnecessarily expensive and ineffective? Refusing to help Trump pander to his deplorable base by committing taxpayer funds to pay for a wall when Trump promised that Mexico would pay for the wall? Carrying out the will of the American people, most of whom oppose Trump because he is unfit for office?

            You make ridiculous claims that somehow, without the wall, the Democrats are sacrificing the freedom of this country and their children’s futures. You don’t know what the hell you’re talking about because you keep listening to Rush, Hannity, Coulter, and Faux News. Democrats are very much in favor of border security, SMART border security, based on informed judgment by experts who know what they’re talking about. The wall Trump demands is neither the most effective nor most economical means by which to accomplish security. The wall is a phallic symbol, food to fuel the “Promises Made Promises Kept” narrative crafted by Kellyanne.

            You keep trying to label people as “lefists” who have somehow hijacked the “Dems” and the Rule of Law and The American People, turning America into a fascist entity. Do you know how crazy this sounds? Trump is ethically and emotionally unfit for office. You speak of an “abuse of power”. Well, Dawn, Honey, the Republicans have had control of the Congress and the White House for 2 years now, so explain to me how the dastardly Dems have someone wrested power away from them when they never had it in the first place.

            1. The Democrat agenda is Stalins agenda.
              The Democrat narrative is “it is acceptable to attack and purge those Americans who object to the Democrats Stalinist kind of slavery.”
              You Dems do love your slavery.

              1. BTW just to correct your little delusion filled rant there, I never said a single word about the wall…..Oh wait never mind, you’re a Dem. Facts don’t count.

              2. Excellent. Please post more materials Just. Like. This. It reinforces with hard evidence that my smug sense of self-superiority over you and your ilk is well-deserved. Thanks for playing, and so sorry for your condition.

                this is to “that hannity feller pinky-swore that hillary and bill were also behind the Lindburgh kidnapping” dawn

        3. Anonymous said, “Barak and Michelle Obama were voted, in a Gallup Poll, as the most-admired man and woman, respectively.”

          FYI…That Gallup Poll was based on telephone interviews with a random sample of exactly 1,025 people who were offered multiple choice answers fresh off Michelle Obama’s stadium-sized, well publicized, Oprah-endorsed, book tour. In a nation of 325 million people, I’d say that “poll” reflects little more than an attempt at manipulating and influencing public opinion.

          information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view.

        4. If there is an important obsession with Fox News, Hannity, etc., it is the obsession of people like Natacha…..whether she posts as Natacha or as “Anonymous”.

      2. Dawn,

        Please don’t give Trump a pass, nor Bush, nor Cheney etc. This isn’t just a problem w/Democrats, although they clearly do worship their “leaders”, desire a savior and viciously attack/dehumanize anyone who points out that their “leaders” are war criminals.

        Trump is also a war criminal. The psy-op Q has kept many of Trump supporters in line, keeping them from looking squarely at their own “leader/savior”. I wish this were only a one party problem because it would be a lot easier to take on if it were.

        There are truly evil people who have committed atrocities at the highest level of both the known and shadow govt. We must understand this fact and face it as citizens. We are being groomed to look for a savior so that we will not think to work together to save everyone. No one person, even if they had a good will (which no one in power has) can save us. This is our job, our work and it means we must be very honest that cruel, evil people are in power regardless of their party affiliation. It will take hard work and the desire for the common good to make things right again in our nation (if it is not already to late). However, we may not make things right again, but we can certainly help others out and do good w/our lives. Truth is a necessary condition for living a good life and doing good in the world. We must be committed to seeing the truth wherever it leads us and to helping others being harmed by the powerful evil people who run things (into the ground).

        1. I’m the last person to give evil a free pass. Atrocities is a subjective word and is used for propaganda purposes nowadays much more than to convey it’s real meaning. The Germans labeled the self defense of the countries they were attacking atrocities against the German people. Democrats label following the US Code, Rule of Law and Constitution atrocities.
          There exists a universal cosmic thing called the human condition. It can change and get better but it will always exist. Those who don’t understand and accept this AND the roles others play in it as well as their own contribution to it, will always rage against and label evil those who they have mentally and emotionally assigned the impossible task of making a Perfect Utoipa of it. I agree that it takes a desire and work to come together for the common good but I also know the desire to come together for the common good is not on everyones agenda. In fact it’s seen as a laughable weakness to be exploited by others. Sometimes there comes a point when people have to chose self preservation over letting a carefully constructed death cult narrative shame them into paying for their desire for goodness with their life.

            “The greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse.”—Edmund Burke

            Folks, it’s time to break the cycle.

            Let’s make 2019 the year we say no to the laundry list of abuses – cruel, brutal, immoral, unconstitutional and unacceptable – that have been heaped upon us by the government for way too long.


            I’m not saying going against the grain is not scary or that it will be easy. It’s necessary. The above article lays out why it is necessary.

  8. Do you think Trump ever heard of McChrystal until he blasted Trump in public? By now, it should be clear that Trump doesn’t spend a lot of time SEARCHING for his enemies. He doesn’t need to. Sure, Trump’s behavior is offensive and uncivil. But politics today rewards that behavior. The pundits and commentators today are getting paid to “tsk tsk” at the lowered tone of democracy, but their exploitation of it is very, very effective. Hypocrisy!

  9. “Many citizens believe that a president must represent the values and civility that we try to instill in our children and try follow in our own lives.” – JT

    And for about +/-30% of the population he does just that.

  10. I would like to see an investigation into McCrystal involvement in the deaths of Pat Tillman and Michael Hastings. It seems those who are critical of him tend to die under suspicious circumstances.

  11. Obama fired him for attacking Biden in the press. Nice to know ol’ dog mouth McChrystal is bi-partisan. RS called him the “Runaway General.” Nice to know some things never change.

    1. Good for Obama. The military is supposedly subordinate to the civilian government and I welcome actions that make the point forcefully. If Trump heckled McChrystal so much the better.

      I suspect that as a class the top generals liked Obama better, if only because he was not very willful compared to Trump. Admins like to be in charge ya know

  12. “I simply fail to understand why the President continues to yield to such impulse on social media.”

    Mr Trump’s attention span, and that of his base, is apparently limited to 140 characters, or whatever the new limit is.

    1. he’s proven as much as anybody, that in terms of communications, he is very much an incredible genius,

      it’s funny how trump has 3 of the top signal achievements of american society and yet he is so hated by Dems and the left:
      -he is a billionaire- inherited a ton and made it grow
      -he was a tv star
      – he is POTUS who won against supposedly the most qualified candidate ever

      now, i don’t hold it against trump that he was successful on tv, even though i almost never watch tv and have disliked it for decades. but i admire him for his other successes. and you guys keep on selling him short, be my guest

  13. McChrystal is a dog and should have been run out of the army on a rail for covering up the circumstances surrounding Pat Tillman’s death. God forbid the army shouldn’t be allowed to milk the Tillman story for a few more inspired recruits. And there was no way it wanted to show its glorious Special Ops boys in a negative light. It was absolutely disgusting and instead of firing McCrystal, he got a fourth star. Trump is right to give the military (and its [former] leaders) jabs whenever and wherever he thinks. The Pentagon has stunk ever since Ike left and it gets smellier every year.

    1. So Do you think that Tillman got fragged by the deep state?
      I have met a few folks who were convinced of it.
      personally i would not know.

  14. McCrystal teaches at, iirc, Harvard. Not long after he took the job I read students must sign a non disclosure form before they may take the class…

    I figure by now D must have massive whiplash. They champion, denigrate, accept, deny/denounce, vilify, become fanboys or girls, all according to Trump’s latest tweet, comment, reaction.

    Stupid mess. But just a couple years ago the mess was the media and others propping up of the “nice black man”. Endlessly.

    1. from wiki– he has CFR and Harvard creds in his earlier tenure.

      “McChrystal was also criticized for his role in the aftermath of the 2004 death by friendly fire of Ranger and former professional football player Pat Tillman. Within a day of Tillman’s death, McChrystal was notified that Tillman was a victim of friendly fire. Shortly thereafter, McChrystal was put in charge of paperwork to award Tillman a posthumous Silver Star for valor.

      On April 28, 2004, six days after Tillman’s death, McChrystal approved a final draft of the Silver Star recommendation and submitted it to the acting Secretary of the Army, even though the medal recommendation deliberately omitted any mention of friendly fire, included the phrase “in the line of devastating enemy fire”, and was accompanied by fabricated witness statements. On April 29, McChrystal sent an urgent memo warning White House speechwriters not to quote the medal recommendation in any statements they wrote for President Bush because it “might cause public embarrassment if the circumstances of Corporal Tillman’s death become public.” McChrystal was one of the first to caution restraint in public statements, until the investigation was complete.[38] McChrystal was one of eight officers recommended for discipline by a subsequent Pentagon investigation but the Army declined to take action against him.[8][39][40]”


      According to Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward, beginning in late spring 2007 JSOC and CIA Special Activities Division teams launched a new series of highly effective covert operations that coincided with the Iraq War troop surge of 2007. They did this by killing or capturing many of the key al-Qa’ida leaders in Iraq.[42][43] In a CBS 60 Minutes interview, Woodward described a new special operations capability that allowed for this success, noting that it was developed by the joint teams of CIA and JSOC. Several senior U.S. officials stated that the “joint efforts of JSOC and CIA paramilitary units were the most significant contributor to the defeat of al-Qa’ida in Iraq.”[42][44] Journalist Peter Bergen also credits McChrystal with transforming and modernizing JSOC into a “force of unprecedented agility and lethality,” playing a key factor in the success of JSOC efforts in subsequent years and in the success of the war in Iraq.[45]


  15. It’s high time credible Republicans begin to call Trump for what he is. It is a travesty that he became their representative after threatening the party with a third party run.

  16. Trump is limited by his vocabulary and his own megalomania. The interesting thing is dogs are loyal and courageous. They are also intelligent. Those are qualities about which Trump knows nothing. I wouldn’t insult dogs by calling him one!

    1. Trump IS courageous. And bold. And authentic. Qualities most politicians know nothing about.

  17. You don’t see why the so-called president responded to the general, and worse, by calling him a dog? Because it vastly expanded the coverage of the general’s remarks? The answer, Jon, is that trump is not only immoral, a racist, a misogynist, and completely uneducated in every area that counts for a president, but he is also a dope. That’s why he responds and why he responds so scurrilously.

    1. remember Vietnam when even the average soldier was called a “baby killer” by the peaceniks? Well today the peaceniks are in charge and they like Hillary never met a general they didn’t like. So long as he said what they wanted him to of course

      1. Unfortunately, John Kerry launched his political career by claiming that atrocities by “average soldiers” in Vietnam were
        That was a big boost to those who liked to throw out lines like “baby killer”.
