3. Averting trump war/mad bomber problem was not in the headlines.

Wapo this morning is 'New book details Milley's secret calls'.

Sub head, 'General tried twice to assuage China during the final Trump months'.

[Did not dig into trump's obvious, visible, erratic threats and behavior]

7. Exactly!

It's all in how they tell it. Capitol riots become tourist visits, and averting war becomes treason.

11. traitortrump, of all people, made the 'treason' allegation, and that was covered.

The casual viewer might think, 'trump had a point'.

8. I'm waiting with you

Trump's coup, and the optic of destabilization it created is one of the reasons Milley made a call.

9. Hannity was all over this last night...

...Saying Miley "conspired" with "Communist China" to discredit the American president. My MAGA nation Aunt has already asked me what I thought of it, since I am a Veteran. I told her, "I'm very happy there were still adults in the room making good decisions."

10. MSNBC's Morning Joe absolutely shreds GOP outrage over Milley: 'Are you stupid?'

Joe is right here. When you have an impaired POTUS, it is necessary for people to step up



"Of course, Republicans acting shocked, just absolutely shocked that phone calls would be made from generals and other people inside of an administration where a president was trying to overturn the results of a democratic election," Scarborough said. "These people are children. It might help them to actually read history books and understand that this has happened before. It has happened at times when presidents were not in the best shape, as Donald Trump was not in good shape, I would say for his entire presidency, but especially after Jan. 6."

"You can go back to October of 1973, during the Arab-Israeli war of 1973," he continued. "The war was in the fourth or fifth day, escalating towards possible nuclear war, and Henry Kissinger was fielding calls from 10 Downing Street. They wanted to speak with [Richard] Nixon, he was drunk, depressed, unable to speak, and Kissinger said no. For the next six, seven months, you had Kissinger, Alexander Haig and others from time to time calling our allies, calling our enemies and assuring them that everything was going to be okay, the United States wasn't going to act in a way that would start a world war."

"That's what leaders have to do from time to time," Scarborough added, "and there's nothing shocking and new about it."
