If there’s one thing you don’t do, it’s get on the nerves of a single mom.
GOP lawmaker Nancy Mace is demanding for Gen. Milley to face consequences for his actions and wants him court-martialed immediately. The firebrand Republican Rep. of South Carolina posted the following statement on social media: “If the reports that Gen. Milley subverted the authority of the President of the United States are true, he should be court-martialed. It shouldn’t matter who’s in power, the standard should be the same for everyone in every Administration.”
Mace suggests an investigation, trials, and perhaps a commission over a specific phone call Milley is accused of making.

Rep. Mace demands equal opportunity and consequences. She says it shouldn’t matter who the president is – if someone does wrong, then they deserve to face the wrath of their actions. But Nancy Mace isn’t the only one calling for action against Milley. Former President Donald Trump is also calling for it, but this was back in July, so it’s been going on for a while.
Trump wanted Milley to be “court-martialed and tried” if he was under the belief that Trump wanted to start a coup against Joe Biden. This was a reference to a book by WaPo reporters, as stated on Insider:
Trump has pushed back against the excerpt from “I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year,” which said that Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, discussed the possibility of a coup with friends, legislators, and colleagues.
“The writings within these third-rate books are Fake News, and ‘General’ Milley (who [former Defense Secretary James] Mattis wanted to send to Europe in order to get rid of him), if he said what was reported, perhaps should be impeached, or court-martialed and tried,” the former president said in a statement. “He tries to be a tough guy, which he is not, but he choked beyond belief as soon as a microphone was stuffed in front of his face or, at the mere sight of the Fake News Media.”
He added: “There was no talk of a coup, there was no coup, it all never happened, and it’s just a waste of words by fake writers and a General who didn’t have a clue.”
It’s Rep. Nancy Mace and Donald Trump against Gen. Milley. Who will win this battle?
