Video: Trump Steps Into SEAL-Trident Controversy

Bill Whittle does something you almost never see in the mainstream media.

Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer gets fired. Defense Secretary Mark Esper says Spencer is out for attempting a dishonest back-channel deal with President Trump that bucked the chain of command. Spencer said he’s out because he could not, in good conscience, follow the Commander-in-Chief’s tweeted “order” to let SEAL Eddie Gallagher retire with his Trident, rather than facing a review board — and potentially being forced out — for taking an inappropriate picture with an enemy corpse. Bill Whittle does something you almost never see in the mainstream media — he thinks through the ethical implications, rather than making a political calculation and then assembling talking points.

Patriot Post partner Bill Whittle and Scott Ott discuss.
