Alleged sex trafficker Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who’s never worn a military uniform, attempted to blast Army Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, today on Capitol Hill saying the military is too “woke.”

But General Milley does not suffer fools lightly: “I’ve read Karl Marx. I’ve read Lenin. That doesn’t make me a communist. So what is wrong with understanding…the country which we are here to defend?”

But wait! There’s more!

“And I personally find it offensive that we are accusing the United States military, our general officers, our commissioned, non-commissioned officers of being, quote, ‘woke’ or something else, because we’re studying some theories that are out there.”
