Earlier we brought you the story of Tucker Carlson’s patently offensive meltdown about how women shouldn’t be in the United States military. He’s taking heat for it from all sides, and now retired U.S. Army General Barry McCaffrey is getting in on the act.
It began when a Twitter user named Lethality Jane posted this: “Dear Tucker Carlson and Fox News, I’m a woman who has served in the U.S. military for over a decade. I’ve deployed three times to combat zones, and have been pregnant once while in uniform. Please explain to me how my existence is a ‘mockery’ of the U.S. military.”
General McCaffrey retweeted Lethality Jane in agreement, and added this: “Unlike Tucker Carlson, I’ve seen a lot of combat. Our US Armed Forces are immensely more capable in battle because of the courage and professionalism of our women in uniform.”
