Despite adamantly denying it, 3-star General Michael Flynn, who has served this country admirably for over three decades, is falsely accused by The Washington Examine and others in the mainstream press, claiming there is ‘no reason’ a coup could not happen here in the U.S.
In their article, they misrepresent General Flynn’s response when asked by a self-described “simple marine”; “why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here?” The Washington Examiner posted: “After cheers erupted in the crowd, Flynn replied, ‘No reason. I mean, it should happen here.'” By strategically quoting General Flynn as having given a two-sentence answer, rather than a single sentence with a comma as he paused in thought (i.e., No reason, I mean, it should happen here.) They have completely and, dare I say intentionally, taken his words out of context to mean the exact opposite of his statement.
Michael Flynn says the US should have the same kind of coup d'etat that Myanmar had. Remember: Myanmar's military is overturning elections, shooting protesters, torturing students, destroying the economy — and it's fresh off a genocide of the Rohingya. https://t.co/I0xkVdGyT4

The liberal MSM, that derided and scrutinized every word uttered by President Trump for 5 years, and who now insists on interpreting the mangled word salads escaping the lips of the current White House resident, is not hesitant to lie about a decorated General in an attempt to defame his service and loyalty.
General Flynn clarified his words for the truth-averse leftist press:
God-fearing, patriotic Americans need no clarification from an American hero such as General Michael Flynn. His lifetime sacrifice and commitment to this nation and the rule of law is proof enough of his intent.
