Are you guys on the right okay with the former president saying this? "Why can't you just shoot them in the legs?" This is the claim made by former Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. Now those if you were going to say he's lying because he's disgruntled employee for having been fired I don't buy that . For one thing he was expecting to be fired and he only stayed on the job to control Trump's worst impulses. This is a man who was a former Secretary of the army , Secretary of Defense a former Army Man, a West Point grad -- a straight shooter (excuse the pun) there's no way you're going to tell me this man is lying that just doesn't work for me. Trump said this and now you have to live with it So here's the point of this OP are you guys on the right okay with a president of the United States attempting to order the military to shoot civilians? Yes they were protestors but that is irrelevant. Esper said that he and others in the room found it shocking which is understandable because it is a shocking thing for a president to say this and it is also demonstrative of his Supreme unfitness for the office. If this doesn't convince you then nothing will.
