Probably said war with Iran is a bad idea.

Either that or the wife beating part.

Hiring the best people since 2017...!

"the wife beating him up"

That would definitely disqualify him in Trump's eye.
And every Trump supporter.

A very appropriate statement from Shanahan. I don't think anyone is completely capable of raising the perfect "American" family. People just aren't wired that way.

Him beating his wife or being beaten by his wife are inconsequential to the Trump crowd.

The only thing that matters is loyalty. His being removed from consideration suggests he didn't show sufficient loyalty and given his position,that would likely only be on going to war, likely with Iran.

Sad.

It's nice that Shanahan stepped down to spend more time bonding with his son at the batting cage.

So....they're going to attack Iran, and the DoD will be run by the deputy assistant undersecretary for food service, who ran a cafeteria line at a diner near Trump Tower and Der Dotard met him once and declared him 'among the best'. Too bad Robert McNamara isn't available...

That plus the 737 Max is bad news for Boeing.
