Obvious video game is obvious.
Retired four-star U.S. General and MSNBC/NBC (because of course) analyst Barry McCaffrey can’t tell the difference between video game footage and real-life combat. Suppose his being an analyst for MSNBC has never made more sense?
This was just super-cringe.

McCaffrey went so far as to use this ‘footage’ to claim Russians are losing large numbers of attack aircraft.
Lucky for him, a supporter reached out to let him know it was a video game.
This is from a combat sim.
What you speak of is actually happening. But this not footage of such action.

You should be both ashamed and embarrassed

These are the moments that make Twitter not so horrible.
For us at least.
