Patrick “That Stupid Bitch Deserved It” Shanahan doesn’t want his legacy to be the same as Donald Rumsfeld’s.
I’d be wanting to get the hell out of the Defense Department too if I saw fat Mike Pompeo do that false flag.
You don’t want a fake war to be your legacy.
So this dude is just like “sorry, I have to quit because my son hit my whore ex-wife with a baseball bat in 2011, lol.”
In the months that he has served as President Trump’s acting secretary of defense, Patrick Shanahan has worked to keep domestic violence incidents within his family private. His wife was arrested after punching him in the face, and his son was arrested after a separate incident in which he hit his mother with a baseball bat. Public disclosure of the nearly decade-old episodes would re-traumatize his young adult children, Shanahan said.
On Tuesday, Trump announced in a tweet that Shanahan would not be going through with the nomination process — which had been delayed by an unusually lengthy FBI background check — “so that he can devote more time to his family.”
Shanahan spoke publicly about the incidents in interviews with The Washington Post on Monday and Tuesday.
“Bad things can happen to good families . . . and this is a tragedy, really,” Shanahan said. Dredging up the episode publicly, he said, “will ruin my son’s life.”
In November 2011, Shanahan rushed to defend his then-17-year-old son, William Shanahan, in the days after the teenager brutally beat his mother. The attack had left Patrick Shanahan’s ex-wife unconscious in a pool of blood, her skull fractured and with internal injuries that required surgery, according to court and police records.
Two weeks later, Shanahan sent his ex-wife’s brother a memo arguing that his son had acted in self-defense.
“Use of a baseball bat in self-
defense will likely be viewed as an imbalance of force,” Shanahan wrote. “However, Will’s mother harassed him for nearly three hours before the incident.”
Details of the incidents have started to emerge in media reports about his nomination, including a USA Today report Tuesday about the punching incident in 2010.
In an hour-long interview Monday night at his apartment in Virginia, Shanahan, who has been responding to questions from The Post about the incidents since January, said he wrote the memo in the hours after his son’s attack, before he knew the full extent of his ex-wife’s injuries. He said that it was to prepare for his son’s initial court appearance and that he never intended for anyone other than his son’s attorneys to read it.
“That document literally was, I sat down with [my son] right away, and being an engineer at an aerospace company, you write down what are all of the mitigating reasons something could have happened. You know, just what’s the list of things that could have happened?” he said.
As he wrote in an ongoing custody battle stemming from their divorce, Shanahan said Monday that he does not believe there can be any justification for an assault with a baseball bat, but he went further in the interview, saying he now regrets writing the passage.
“Quite frankly it’s difficult to relive that moment, and the passage was difficult for me to read. I was wrong to write those three sentences,” Shanahan said.
No you weren’t, dude.
You know she deserved it, I know she deserved it, everyone knows she deserved it.
There’s never been a nagging single mother who didn’t deserve to have her head smashed in with a baseball bat.
Period, the end.
But this is a great excuse to slip out of an impending doom situation in Iran. It wasn’t an issue for the months that it’s been talked about, then Pompeo starts going after Iran like he goes after a White Castle Crave Case and this dude is just like “yeah sorry, this one time my kid hit that bitch with a bat, I have to leave now, thanks, bye.”
Speaking of White Castle Crave Cases, I just want to say I’ve had about enough of Nick Fuentes shilling for Big Macs.
I’m sick and fucking tired of it, and I’m calling him out – right here, right now.
Basically, Big Macs are the N-word of fast food burgers.
This is the deal, kids.
If we exclude Fudruckers and Five Guys because they don’t have drive-thrus, these are the best fast food burgers, in order:
- Dave’s Hot and Juicy 3/4 lb triple
- Son of Baconator
- Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger
- Double Cheese Slider
- Cheese Slider
- Chili Cheese Burrito
- Triple Double Crunchwrap
- Burrito Supreme
- Quarter Pounder
You’ll note that McDonald’s JUST BARELY made it onto that list. Slid in at #10 – with a burger that is not a Big Mac at all, but a much better burger, which is still not very good.
I like most of Fuentes’ talking points, but his constant shilling for Big Macs has led me to believe he might be some kind of Jewish agent.
