Defense Secretary Esper Fires Back at Critical Democrats

Secretary of Defense Mark Esper fired back at Senate Democrats who were critical of the response to the coronavirus.

According to The Hill:

Defense Secretary Mark Esper shot back Tuesday at a group of Democratic senators who last week panned him for what they described as a failure to sufficiently respond to the coronavirus pandemic.

“I am very disappointed that members of Congress, particularly those who sit on the Armed Services Committee and who receive weekly updates from us, would write a letter that includes a number of misleading, false or inaccurate statements,” Esper said during a press briefing at the Pentagon.

Esper added the department provides lawmakers with “complete, accurate and timely information,” and said he has spoken to the chairmen and ranking members of the Armed Services committees multiple times.

“We recognize Congress has an important oversight role, but it should be an informed oversight role, and we are committed to doing that to address any members’ concerns,” he said.

Esper was responding to a letter from Senator Elizabeth Warren expressing concern over the Pentagon’s response. It was signed by 9 other Democrat senators.

Just why would you expect them to pay attention? They probably thought you were speaking to someone else. Since you are beneath them they wouldn’t pay attention to anything you said anyway.

The Dems are all out of ammunitions, at least ammunition which is useful! They are quick to judgement even though they were slow to react to this pandemic. They are content to make dumb accusations to rally their troops, but their troops are abandoning their posts, tired of their lies and side stepping during this terrible time…If you take “dem” out of the middle of pandemic, you are left with “panic”. That is them all over!

THANK YOU Mr. Esper. I am glad that someone in Washington is willing to ‘call out’ the troublemakers, other than just our President. He needs all the good help he can get.

“It was signed by Elizabeth Warren and 9 others.”
Warren is a ‘domestic enemy’. Review her voting record and listen to what comes out of her mouth. She’s complicit as well in the crimes which congress has been entertaining for some time now. Many on both sides who act like they’re ‘clean’ are into the graf up to their elbows. Insider trading.

Come on people & Repubs — it is past time to tell these BS demoTRASH scum to go schitt down each others’ throats so we can carry on the business of getting this country back in working order without those obstructionist pieces of dog schitt in the way. They want nothing more than to keep this country in chaos and turmoil at least until election time. It is past time to throw the b******s to the curb and proceed without them.

The same lying Elizabeth Warren who claims she is Native American and who claims she was fired from her teaching position because of her pregnancy. Anyone who believes her, please contact me: been trying to sell the Brooklyn Bridge.

the 10 congressmen who wrote that letter probably were not capable of reading (or comprehending) the information sent to them by the DOD.

Would it be asking to much to know who the other nine signatures were from? I can appreciate Mr Ester’s sense of rightness, but it would be nice if we new who the other idiots were so we would know (other than they were Dumbocrats) who not to vote for!

Here’s the list of members of the Armed Services Committee. Look over the list of the Dems, and then scrol back up and start counting the ones off you think are the ones that complained. Easy to pick them out!
