When Donald Trump ran for the Republican nomination in 2016, all of his opponents knew there was something wrong with him. Marco Rubio and Chris Christie got into fierce exchanges with him. Ted Cruz refused to support him at the RNC. Lindsey Graham said that he would destroy the party.
A former Secretary of Defense offered faint praise of Donald Trump over the weekend. Robert Gates pointed to the President’s success in not starting any wars over the last four years.
Gates served under both George W. Bush and Barack Obama. He’s also previously spoken critically of Vice President Joe Biden. He told Meet the Press on Sunday that Trump had had some success.
“Trump is unhinged and ignorant. Bannon is nuts and malicious. If not supervised by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, their decisions could endanger the world.”
Gates says it's ok because he met Rex "through our mutual involvement in...the Boy Scouts of America" while Rice doesn't mention their business ties at all
He knows nothing about me. But look at the results under his guidance - a total disaster!
Since his birtherism became a story in the campaign, Donald Trump has gone into full meltdown mode. The Republican nominee has again called for Hillary Clinton to be killed, thrown a tantrum about CNN, and attacked a former Defense Secretary.

On Monday night's episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert brilliantly took down conservatives's positions on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Robert Gates smacked down Republicans who are using his book to criticize President Obama by saying,'I agreed with all the president's decisions on Afghanistan.'
The media has fallen back into one of their favorite narratives about Obama being on the defensive, but they completely missed that Robert Gates' new book shows why Barack Obama is a good president.
Pastor Terry Jones again tried to incite violence on September 11th. His vile actions deserve to land him in a maximum security facility.
Benghazi was bigger than Watergate (and apparently, 9/11 as well) but "Seal Team 6-Gate" is bigger even than Benghazi! (and Benghazi was totally the worst scandal ever, right? Well, not so much...).
Robert Gates mocked Republicans for their criticism of the Obama administration's handling of Benghazi, saying they had a 'cartoonish' impression of military capabilities.
