Admiral McRaven: I did not back Hillary Clinton or anyone else-I am a fan of Presidents Obama & Bush

@jaketapper

Admiral McRaven tells me: I did not back Hillary Clinton or anyone else. I am a fan of President Obama and President George W. Bush, both of whom I worked for. I admire all Presidents, regardless of their political party, who uphold the dignity of the office... 1/


2/ ... and who use that office to bring the Nation together in challenging times. I stand by my comment that the President's attack on the media is the greatest threat to our democracy in my lifetime....

3/... When you undermine the people's right to a free press and freedom of speech and expression, then you threaten the Constitution and all for which it stands.

2. Thank you General. Most of us just ignore Cadet bone spurs.

What comes out of trumps mouth means very little to Americans who have a brain.

4. Note the words...

 

"I admire all Presidents, regardless of their political party, who uphold the dignity of the office."

Clearly not referring to HRC, and referring to the present occupant of the office...undignified and not admired.
