President Trump released a statement blasting his former Secretary of Defense, Mark Esper, calling him a “lightweight” and explaining the hilarious reason why he used to call him “Yesper.”

Back up: Trump went on the attack after Esper gave an interview on 60 Minutes, previewing his book where he makes several unflattering allegations about his tenure serving in the Trump administration.

The following are a few of Trump’s responses when 60 Minutes asked him to comment on specific allegations:
60 Minutes asked for comment on Esper’s allegation that during the riots in D.C. during the summer of 2020, Trump wanted to shoot protestors in the legs and called members of his cabinet “f*cking losers.”

💬 Trump responded: “This a complete lie, and 10 witnesses can back it up. Mark Esper was weak and totally ineffective, and because of it, I had to run the military. I took out ISIS, Qasem Soleimani, al-Baghdadi, rebuilt the military with $2.5 trillion, created Space Force, and so much more. Mark Esper was a stiff who was so desperate not to lose his job. He would do anything I wanted, that’s why I called him “Yesper.” He was a lightweight and a figurehead, and I realized it very early on. He was recommended to me by some very weak RINOs and that is what he turned out to be.”

60 Minutes asked about Esper’s claim that Mark Meadows called to fire him because he wasn’t loyal.

💬 Trump responded: “I fired Yesper because he was a RINO incapable of leading, and I had to run the military myself.”

60 Minutes asked about the claim that Trump wanted to attack Mexican drug cartels with missiles.

💬 Trump responded [this is my favorite]: “No comment.”

…because obviously, Trump wanted to bomb the drug dealers. 😂
