Putin is exultant

All officers of the seven uniformed services of the United States swear or affirm an oath of office upon commissioning, specifically: “I, (name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

The immediate questions are: How can the military protect us from our domestic enemies - specifically a treasonous and seditious president - who is/are conspiring with our mortal foreign enemy, Russia? And, most importantly, how can/could the military protect us if they have to obey the orders of their commander-in-chief, the same treasonous and seditious president?

What a vicious loyalty conundrum for everyone in the United States, for which Putin is deliriously exultant, and is one of the things puppet Trump - and his brilliant dictator master Putin - is counting on. Putin has once again demonstrated that he is the most dangerous person in the world.
