The Damage Is Done & Nothing Will Be Able To Reverse It.....

I'm referring to the firing of the Aircraft Carrier Captain that wanted to care for his crew and the Acting Secretary of the Navy piling on and criticizing him.

We all know that both were ordered by Trump because Trump cannot let someone criticize him. So he took out the Captain and had the Acting Sec of Navy seal the deal with a nasty review of the Captain.

The damage that was done by this is that I believe finally our military is beginning to see how much Trump really cares for them. All his talk about how he honors the military is just a bunch of BS so that he can get them to vote for him.

Now that Trump sees the support that this Captain had by his crew and by the bad press given to him by having this Captain fired - he is trying to pass the blame on to the Acting Sec of the Navy - and now thinking that having him resign will make things all better. It won't. The damage is done Donnie.

Now all the military finally can see the real Donald Trump and his total disregard for anyone but himself. Some Commander-In-Chief you are Trump. Just a disgrace!!!!

Trump is just going down the line and destroying any support he's had with all kinds of groups.

If this is what he calls campaigning - he's campaigning to lose in November.

1. Brown-noser Modly said he didn't talk to the White House before removing the captain

but also said he knew The Don was upset at the captain

Translation: somebody made sure Modly got a White House directive without him talking directly to the White House

3. implausible deniability. this firing crozier has donnie's stink all over it.

there's really no way anyone would risk something like that without donnie effectively approving it, especially as it was something in the media. even if it was modly's sole idea to fire him, he would have run it past the white house if only to coordinate the timing of any other media message they might be working on.

if modly had *quietly* fired him, donnie would have been fine with it. modly got fired for doing it in a way that got embarrassing bad press in the process.

7. Trump was already set with his condemnation of Crozier, so he knew in advance.

The problem was old Moldy's hate filled words in front of the crew that went viral.

One of the things Trump can't forgive is making him look bad.

So, Moldy had to go.

2. Unfortunately

There are far too many on the blind partisan reprehensible right who will still vote for Trump, including former and current military.

5. You nailed global1

He just fired, the Inspector General over the stimulus package. So he is in charge of the trillions of dollars now. Bet he just sneaks out the back door, of the Whitehouse one night (before the election) and ends up in Russia with Putin.
