“Our government continues to be in unbelievable turmoil”

“Senator, in this hurricane of duplicity and incompetence coming out of the White House, sometimes things get overlooked…General Tony Thomas…is quoted as saying this in all of the papers today: ‘Our government continues to be in unbelievable turmoil. I hope they sort it out soon because we are a nation at war.’ How does that strike you coming from a general who is very rarely quoted on anything? And this quote is just dynamite,” asks Morning Joe veteran columnist Mike Barnicle of Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) during a conversation about the resignation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Listen to Murphy’s response here about the kind of comment from a high ranking general that is “not without precedent” but that only comes “once or twice a century.” Is this an opportunity for the new Administration to hit “reset” on foreign policy? Only on MSNBC.
