Retired general on Trump’s security adviser pick: ‘His tweets border on being demented’

Retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey has changed his opinion on Donald Trump‘s pick for national security adviser, retired Lt. Army Gen. Michael Flynn, after a review of his social media habits.

During an interview with MSNBC this Thursday, McCaffrey said that he initially supported Flynn, but withdrew his support after he learned of Flynn’s penchant for sharing fake news on his Twitter account.

“I’m now extremely uneasy about some of these tweets, which don’t sound so much as if they are political skullduggery, but instead border on being demented,” McCaffrey said. “So I think we need to look into this and sort our what’s going on here.”

“I think that we need to aggressively examine what was going on with Gen. Flynn and his son, dealing with these transparent, nearly demented tweets that were going out,” he continued. “I think it needs closer scrutiny.”

Flynn and his son, Michael G. Flynn, have a well-documented history of sharing fake news and conspiracy theories.

From Talking Points Memo:

In one incident, which anonymous sources within the Trump transition team say led to his firing, the younger Flynn posted multiple defenses of the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory, which posits that a local Washington, D.C., pizza parlor secretly houses a Clinton-run child sex trafficking ring.
