    Wonder if Biden can engineer a coup.
    He has already stated the military will escort trump out of the WH.
    What a hoot.

    There is not much difference between politically motivated generals, and politically motivated police captains......

    .....Neither, speak for the rank and file.......only themselves.

    If he said it:
    1. it reflects a lack of classiness;
    2. it means that Mr. Trump has gotten under his skin; and,
    3. it is a pathetic effort to show that he is a "tough guy".

    I think the problem is simple. Generals expect to retire working/advising the war industry they have been picking to build their weapons. Weapons need to be used or wear out before replacement. War is a profit creating business for all in the military industrial complex.
    Trump finished wars and refused to start new, despite people like Mattis who wanted war against Syria.
    Trump needs to wise up and do like Dubya, start a real nice war to make the establishment happy.
    I know one Senator that will love him, there was one more but he died. Both of them were never Trumpers involved in support of the "Russian Collusion". One gave the phony papers to the FBI, the other supporter Mueller. Both of them happened to be the biggest hawks supporting every war.
