General Stanley McChrystal had attacked Joe Biden in the Rolling Stone magazine in 2010 and had subsequently been fired by then-president Barack Obama.

He has now appeared on television stating he thinks that Biden "would set a tone in which he brings out the best of people. Again, not everybody will agree with every policy ― nobody ever will ― and that’s healthy in a democracy" and added that "we have to believe in our values. You have to believe that your commander-in-chief, at the end of the day, is someone you can trust. And I can trust Joe Biden".
