US Army Has Picked Up Bullshitting Pointers From President Trump


Did Donald Trump learn his bullshitting skills from the Army, or is it the other way around?

“Only about one-third of our [58 Brigade Combat Teams] are ready,” said Gen. Daniel Allyn, Army vice chief of staff. “Of the BCTs that are ready, only three could be called upon to fight tonight in the event of a crisis.”

As James Joyner says, “This is either utter horseshit or an admission of gross malfeasance on the part of Army leadership.” Luckily for the Army leadership, I vote for the former.
