Two female generals will be nominated for elite, four-star commands. A top U.S. official said they delayed the promotions to avoid interference by Donald Trump.

Last fall, the Pentagon’s most senior leaders agreed that two top generals should be promoted to elite, four-star commands. From The New York Times:

The Pentagon had to wait until now to promote two women to Four-Star Generals because the previous president was such a rapey, misogynist, piece of shit.

Q's from today's show: What do the people closest to President Trump know about his conduct? What do America's four-star generals know? What do the retired generals know? What do his pals like Sean Hannity know? Why do so many of them remain silent while Trump remains so loud?
