Trump listens to no one because he asks no one. His ego makes the arrogant orange child in the White House believe that he is intelligent. Can you say, ‘mentally incompetent?’
The acting Secretary of Defense and the Pentagon are very upset with your “commander-in-ignorance.” He says he will overrule a decision made by our highest military officers.
“There is extreme concern over decision making being pulled from the Navy,” one administration official told CNN Saturday in reaction to Trump’s Thursday tweet that “the Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin.” The Trident Pin, which is worn by Navy SEALs, is awarded following their completion of an intense qualification course and symbolizes membership in the elite military community.
It’s fitting that Gallagher would be a hero to your draft dodger and illegitimate president. Recently he was demoted after being found guilty of posing for a photograph with a dead ISIS fighter. In past incidents Gallagher faced a court martial for premeditated murder and attempted murder; he was acquitted.
The only point of this article is the single fact that Trump must keep his nose out of military affairs. No General or Admiral wants to listen to the opinions of a draft dodger. It is very sad that he’s allowed to have the title of “commander-in-chief” of our military.
