In an impromptu telephone call to The Nation’s Dave Zirin, the U.S. Air Force veteran took fierce aim at the president’s false claim that former President Barack Obama didn’t call the families of fallen service members.
Popovich claimed Trump “thinks that he can only become large by belittling others” and said his lie about Obama was “as low as it gets.”
And he didn’t stop there:

Popovich added that the people working alongside Trump “should be ashamed” for not doing anything about his unsuitability for office.
Twitter users appeared to agree with his thoughts, and had this to say:
