Biden campaign removing retired general from ad after he objects

The Biden campaign says it is removing images of a retired general who led the fight against the Islamic State after he objected to appearing in an ad touting the former vice president's accomplishments.

Retired Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland, who led the anti-ISIS fight from 2015 to 2016, wrote on LinkedIn over the weekend that “a number of people” believe he had endorsed Joe Biden for president after the campaign released a video this month showing images of the officer with Biden in Iraq.

“I'm not a political person, but this isn't about just me. I object to the use of ANY military personnel in uniform in political ads - full stop,” he wrote in the post, which has since been deleted.

The criticism came a week after POLITICO reported that the Trump campaign used an image of Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley without his permission.

1. In normal times he would be right but

where tf has he been that he doesn't notice the state of affairs in this country.

He is either taking the cowards way out or he agrees with what trump is doing. Neither is a good look.
