I wish General Honere was POTUS.

All Union Leaders of the Police Departments should be fired, and the Police Departments need to be overhauled. People are tired of all this corruption.🆘🆘

I don't recognize Mr. Honory's name. When was he part of the triad?

CantWaitFor46

YOU SIR HAVE SPOKEN THE TOTAL TRUTH.

General remember when your troops...active, reserve, and national guard enforced martiallaw in New Orleans? I remember. Guess those folks didn’t deserve constitutional rights under you.

You wrong!

Ok yes it should it has no place in the White House

The Secretary of Defense does not “control” any of those things. The President of the United States does

There is your problem MSNBC a joke. Journalism died decades ago.

The control of the US Military sits with the President of the United States. You’d think a Lt. General would know that.

Absolutely

This guy-why!?

Pentagon does what the Comander in Chief tells them to do. dumb!

Except SECDEF dosen't control the nuclear weapons, nuclear subs, or nuclear carriers so... yeah.

Ugh. Hate to break it to you BUT secretary of Defense has no power over nuclear power, submarines and aircraft’s. Sorry

Lt General Honore obviously doesn’t have the slightest clue who controls nuclear weapons in this country. Very disturbing if not treasonous

Lol who is running this shit show that thinks they are reporting the news

Exactly what part of 'Commander in Chief' do you not understand?

Shouldn’t he know that’s NOT how that works.....he doesn’t control any of that.....

Everything is fine

TDS

Honore was terrific

This man is a hero. LISTEN TO HIM.

Secretary of Defense and Chairman ESPER NEEDS YO RESIGN .. Esper handled terrible RESIGN

Then that means he should stay out of the streets attacking protesters exercising their right to assemble.

Whoa. Trump is a huge risk to America, we all knew this for a long time, but someone up in D.C. needs to do something, his impeachment did nothing to check get who he is, removal was needed.

Esper's credibility is toast and he can only blame himself. Be better he leaves before he digs himself in deeper serving the man who sits in the oval office.

Defense Secretary: Trump Shouldn’t Invoke Insurrection Act to Quell ProtestsMark Esper may be reflecting military leaders’ reluctance to be politicized by President Trump, who has floated sending military units to cities. ed_kilgore It was totally nauseating. Fire him now! ed_kilgore Who knows - all he done so far was tell us he's clueless and follows the walking Cheeto where ever it goes. ed_kilgore No...It's self preservation: ...and a realization that if Trump 'commands' the military to do something and it goes horribly, stupidly wrong like the Kent State incident back in the 1970's, one of the first asses thrown under the bus will be his.

Bucking Trump, Esper says no need for military response to Floyd protests“The option to use active duty forces in a law enforcement role should only be used as a matter of last resort and only in the most urgent and dire situations,' Esper said. To emphasize, the Insurrection Act requires a formal proclamation in order to be invoked. Trump *threatened* to use it if state National Guards aren’t effective, but vague threats and ambiguous speeches don’t cut it. He wants to look tough without actually taking responsibility. For the terminally stupid IF they military & police HAD used 'tear gas' the way the FAKE NEWS KEEPS stupidly claiming THEN they WOULD HAVE WORN GAS MASKS! Duh! But NO ONE WAS SO OBVIOUSLY NO TEAR GAS WAS USED! Just smoke bombs! AND THEY WERE NOT 'PEACEFUL' protestors! Those scum .EsperDoD I appreciate you finally taking a stand. It should have happened before now. Integrity matters. To the VP and rest of the TrumpAdministration and the GOP SenateGOP HouseGOP senatemajldr GOPLeader You need to find your integrity too, if you still have any.
