You have to hand it to Richard Grenell. Agree with him or not, he just does not put up with any of the guff his critics and critics of his former boss throw at him, and is unafraid of putting their stupidity on blast on social media for all the world to see.

Former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), an adviser to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, found that out the hard way this week.

It all started after Grenell and Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, a CNN military analyst, got into a debate over the wisdom of the Trump-approved Pentagon decision to pull 12,000 U.S. troops from Germany.

Hertling posted a lengthy thread on the topic, including the below tweet, which Grenell responded to:


Hertling then tried to “pull rank” on Grenell by suggesting he was in a better position to gauge the situation than Trump’s former acting DNI:

Grenell didn’t take the bait on the swipe, and simply noted that it was planned and would be implemented by military officials at the Pentagon who are in a position to know the particulars that Hertling likely does not:

It was then McCaskill chimed in, apparently believing that piling on Grenell was a good idea:


It wasn’t:

Her response? Instead of quote RTing a reply, which everyone who visited her page would automatically see, she sent this meek response, which you’d only see if you clicked on the “replies” link on her Twitter page:

Don’t go away mad, Claire. Just go away. Seriously. How embarrassing?!
