    Fox News regular Anthony Tata to be tapped as Pentagon policy chief

    Anthony Tata, a retired Army brigadier general, novelist and Fox News regular, will be tapped as the next Pentagon policy chief, according to three people with knowledge of the decision.

    If confirmed by the Senate, Tata would replace John Rood, who was forced out in February as part of President Donald Trump’s loyalty purge after two years in the job.

    Tata is best known as an avid Trump defender and author of the “Threat” adventure series. He has been featured in Trump tweets for lauding the president on Fox News, where he has spoken out about Trump’s firing of Navy Secretary Richard Spencer over the war crimes case of former Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, and also about Trump’s decision to send troops to the U.S.-Mexico border.

    Tata retired from the Army in 2008 after an Army probe found he had been having affairs with “at least two” women, the News & Observer reported. He served as North Carolina transportation secretary but resigned in 2015, citing a need to spend more time with his family and the demands of his side career as a novelist. He also considered running for Congress.
    Just what the military needs, a morally compromised lick-spittle Trump loyalist who is incapable of checking Tweeter-in-Chief Bone Spur's worst impulses. Full speed ahead! Shoot down those boats!

    So, the purge & sycophancy now infest the military? There's going to be a lot of work to be done, come 20 JAN.

    Fair question, but eventually President CheetoVonTweeto will run through that lot as well.
