General McChrystal said

'How’d I get screwed into going to this dinner?" demands Gen. Stanley McChrystal.

What does “get screwed into” exactly means? And why he “demands”? All the story is here: Politics News

Thanks.

When you’re “screwed” it means that you’re in a very bad situation.

When someone “screws you into” something, generally they trick you or sign you up for something without your knowledge – or tells you that if you don’t do it, bad things will happen.

In this case, McChrystal didn’t want to go to Paris, but someone made him go.

The writer probably used “demands” because Gen. McChrystal was angry or frustrated. “Get screwed into” is a slang phrase that denotes anger.

Thank you, Charlotte, may I kiss you?

You could try. :smiley:

Accept my admiration.
