Former CIA and NSA Director Gen. Michael Hayden stood by his statement that Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) should be removed from the human race.
I was surprised to wake up this morning and discover that many MAGAnuts had lost their minds over my suggestion that “Coach” Tuberville not be considered a member of the human race. I stand by that view. I’m wishing you all a nice day even the intransigent Tommy Tuberville.

Hayden’s comment comes from one person asking if the Senate should remove Tuberville from his committee due to holding military nominations because of the Pentagon’s abortion policy.
In October 2022, The Pentagon changed its policy after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.
The Pentagon would pay for service members’ travel to get abortions plus help Defense health care providers escape states that have strict abortion laws “in order to support the performance of official duties.”
The Hyde Amendment bans the government from paying for abortions except when the mother’s life is in trouble, rape, or incest. It says nothing about travel.
Tuberville announced his intent two months later: “As a result of your [Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin] office’s ongoing recalcitrance to Congressional oversight, effective this morning, I have placed a hold on all further nominees from the Department of Defense until such time as my staff is briefed to my satisfaction on this matter.”
But Tuberville recently made a valid point: “Y’all got the American taxpayer on the hook to pay for travel and time off for elective abortions.”
I don’t want to pay for anyone’s anything, but abortion is at the top of the list!DONATE
