With the assistance of the Commanding General of the Washington, DC National Guard, The Washington Fake News Post has published another barefaced lie regarding President-elect Donald Trump.
Check out WaPo’s story below, citing the butthurt commander of the DC National Guard, who is complaining that Donald Trump fired him in the middle of the inauguration, which is a lie that WaPo apparently never checked out. If they did check it out, then they published a known lie.
As it turns out the Trump team did not fire the general. He quit. He was asked to stay on the job until after the inauguration, but he refused, ostensibly to make it appear that he was fired by a racist Donald Trump. The general then ran to WaPo with his lie and they swallowed it hook, line, and sinker, publishing it to prove what a bastard our new president is. The lie has not been retracted, only secretly rewritten to reflect reality.
The Army general who heads the D.C. National Guard and has an integral part in overseeing the inauguration said Friday that he will be removed from command effective at 12:01 p.m. Jan. 20, just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president.
Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz’s departure will come in the middle of the presidential ceremony — classified as a national special security event — and while thousands of his troops are deployed to help protect the nation’s capital during an inauguration he has spent months helping to plan.
“The timing is extremely unusual,” Schwartz said in an interview Friday morning, confirming a memo announcing his ouster that was obtained by The Washington Post. During the inauguration, Schwartz will command not only members of the D.C. Guard but also 5,000 unarmed troops dispatched from across the country to help. He also will oversee military air support protecting Washington during the inauguration.
“My troops will be on the street,” said Schwartz, who turned 65 in October. “I’ll see them off, but I won’t be able to welcome them back to the armory.” He said he would “never plan to leave a mission in the middle of a battle.”
Unlike in the states, where the governor appoints the National Guard commander, in the District that duty falls to the president.
