President Donald Trump is ready to oust Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and find a new national security adviser before the North Korea meetings in May, multiple sources told Fox News Thursday. On Tuesday, the President fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and told reporters at the White House he was near having his ideal team.
Fox News has learned from White House sourced the President has chosen film actor, reality show star and God-fearing patriot R. Lee Ermey to replace McMasters.
A talented character actor known for his military roles, Ronald Lee Ermey was in the United States Marine Corps for 11 years. He rose to the rank of Staff Sergeant, and later was bestowed the honorary rank of Gunnery Sergeant by the Marine Corps, after he served 14 months in Vietnam and later did two tours in Okinawa, Japan. Remy is best known for his role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Full Metal Jacket, which earned him a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. he has also hosted several reality shows including GunnyTime with R. Lee Ermey.
“I’m really at a point where we’re getting very close to having the Cabinet and other things that I want,” Trump told reporters,”we are looking at a lot of guys, all the best guys. I know Lee Ermey, I’ve learned a lot from his movies and shows. Did you see him in Full Metal Jacket? Great movie. He didn’t take any guff off that weird guy in his platoon and he won’t take any guff off the Chinese I can tell you.”
Trump went on to say Ermey’s history of playing a “bad ass” on TV would translate well into his vision of National Security.
“I am very honored by this nomination from a great man.”, Ermey told Fox News’ Sean Hannity, “It’s my firm conviction that when Uncle Sam calls, by God we go, and we do the best that we can. I can tell you this, all the foreign countries like China, and France, and Oookie OookieStan won’t be pushing American around anymore. No sir. They try any funny business with me I’ll go right up to their President and ask them what is your major malfunction snowflake?
Sources with knowledge of McMaster’s standing in the White House have repeatedly said that he has been on thin ice for months. The change could be officially announced as early as next week.
