    Trump Administration Uses Fake CENTCOM Spokesperson to Speak to Press

    Why the US dropped the ?Mother of All Bombs? in Afghanistan | TheHill

    The link is to the original story, but as you can see, the syntax of the spokesperson clearly does not match that of someone in CENTCOM. It is simple and juvenile and downright stupid:

    “We mean business,” the CENTCOM spokesman said. “President Trump said prior that once he gets in he’s going to kick the S-H-I-T out of the enemy. That was his promise and that’s exactly what we’re doing.”
    So the next day, this statement was issued:

    The day after this story was published, CENTCOM issued a statement saying the remarks made to The Hill were "inappropriate."
    “Statements published on April 13 attributed to USCENTCOM were made by an individual unauthorized to speak on behalf of U.S. Central Command and do not reflect the professionalism of CENTCOM,” CENTCOM media chief Maj. Josh Jacques said in a statement.
    "These statements fail to portray the values of more than 80,000 service members of the U.S. military currently serving in the CENTCOM area of responsibility," Jacques added.
    "Our media engagement mission is to provide accurate, impartial information to the public and their media representatives worldwide. Those inappropriate statements do not reflect the official views of CENTCOM or its leadership."

    *******

    Remember, Lord Little Fingers used two aliases and posed as his own pr person, so it's not like this is beneath him. Although, I don't think this is him this time. The syntax and word usage isn't bumbling enough for him. My first choice is that disgusting POS, Stephen Miller and my second choice is He Went To Jared.

    You do know what CentCom is right? Probably one of the most important offices in the Defense Department. Our allies depend on Centcom to get up to date info - not BS like this was.

    So yeah, major screw up....again..

    WOW! We agree. It's not a screw up. IT'S FRAUD! Whether the orange man said it. Or Bannon said it. Or an 'actor' playing the part of a CENTCOM employee said it, it's fraud.

    Isn't there some type of 'federal law' about impersonating a military officer?

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure impersonating a Pentagon Official is not normally filed under "whoopdeedoo." In fact, to quote Joe Biden, "this is a big fucking deal."

    So should we sell our stuff and go hide in Alaska or something?

    Are bombs about to fall?

    Are nations canceling trade deals over this?

    It's only a big fucking deal to the guy who screwed up and you liberals, nobody else really cares.

    And you will forget about this as soon as the next biggest fuck up happens which will probably be tomorrow given the rate you folks post at.
