Off with his head

Trump continues to tell damaging lies (aka libel) about Vindman.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the military will likely look at disciplinary action against Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, just days after the National Security Council official was ousted from the White House after giving damaging testimony during the House impeachment hearings.

“That’s going to be up to the military, we’ll have to see, but if you look at what happened, they’re going to certainly, I would imagine, take a look at that,” Trump said in response to a follow-up question about what he meant when he said, “the military can handle him.”

I’m so sick of his idiotic stock phrases – “we’ll have to see,” “if you look at what happened” – empty meaningless filler because he has nothing of substance to say. Then there’s the genius juxtaposition of ” they’re going to certainly, I would imagine” – well which is it? Are you certain, or do you imagine?

Trump also said he wasn’t “happy” with Vindman and his twin brother Yevgeny, who served as a senior NSC lawyer and was also recalled on Friday despite not being a witness in the president’s impeachment hearings.

“Happy” – another meaningless filler word. He has zero reason to punish Yevgeny Vindman but doesn’t like to say so, so he’s just “not happy” with him. He might as well wear a neon sign saying his head is entirely empty.

Trump, without providing evidence or specific examples, said Alexander Vindman reported “very inaccurate things” about the “perfect” call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“It turned out that what he reported was very different,” Trump said. “And also when you look at the person he reports to, said horrible things, avoided the chain of command, leaked, did a lot of bad things. And so we sent him on his way to a much different location, and the military can handle him any way they want.”

Horrible things, bad things. Well ok then.
