And yet the "i don't trust Trump with the nuclear codes" meme continues.

I never understood this either. Trump strikes me as one of those people who's brash when they're in their element. Take them out of their element and they are open minded and willing to listen to advice.

OTOH Hillary seems like the kind of person who consistently acts like they know what they're doing when they have no fucking clue.

That's a really sincere and accurate observation put simply. I am in the military and have encountered both types many times. Your comment strikes me as someone who has been around the block a few times.

Whoa don't think for a moment she doesn't know exactly what shes doing. She strikes me as the type that follows directions very well.

While I was going to say Hillary needs to retire (to the federal pen preferably) that's actually not a bad observation as 88 active generals would possibly be a military coup. I can't say I wasn't a little bit optimistic when I clicked on the link (if I didn't follow news and wasn't aware of the endorsment).

Just think on how many military members would still follow them in war. Active and retired.

To be fair this is just another political posturing match that hillary responded to. Its really kinda useless from both sides.

I think this is the closest to a coup d'état the u.s has ever gotten. I mean it's far from one but relative to the us its close

Retired generals don't retire and disappear - they still have significant influence. I find myself agreeing with you.

How is this close to a coup? This is a group of private citizens voicing their opinion and participating in one of America's core institutions... This is pretty much the opposite of a coup.

This isn't defiance. Don't let the clickbait title fool you. All that happened was a bunch of generals endorsed the Republican, same as every 4 years.

It was 14 Medal of Honor recipients. Once that was called antisemetic Trump went up to over 200 generals and admirals and over 30 Medal of Honor recipients.

This is a non-story. 88 generals made the endorsement more than a month ago. The Republican nominee always gets a bunch of generals endorsing him. It's not an act of defiance, it's standard.
