Trump getting involved was setting up another conflict of interest.

Trump, the final say over the military, how fucking scary is that!

But this guy is proof that Trump's loyalists who he places in positions like this will screw up just like this. You might remember that the guy who would have been running this was forced out when Trump forced the nave to reinstate that murderous have seal and give him back his credentials and rank. It's a recipe for disaster.

And he fired those who don't measure up, doesn't he. This guy deserved to be fired too. Both of them did.

The best people? They won't go near him. He's left with the people that gave him a lot of money.

You just aren't funny in the least, but then again, comedy requires intelligence.

One that wants to save his crew. What 'enemy' was going to attack them?

Yes, the "enemy" turned out to be his own boss. A cool quarter million in travel costs so moldy could get his a$$ fired.

Navy Times: You know they are glad that Moldy is gone

The funny thing about this story is that the trumpist Navy secretary rushed to fire the captain because he was worried that the captain's leak to the media would enrage trump.

In his haste, he miscalculated the popularity of the captain and gave the crew a trump style dressing down, even using trumpist language. Turns out trump gets triggered by those kind of bad optics and the secretary ended up getting sacked himself. Sacked as in a self tea-bagging of the first order.

The Captain made a choice to save this and every other sailor on that ship. He made his calculations and took his shot to save them. Removed or not, those sailors know who had their back. The rule of leadership is to never ask your troops to do something that you wouldn't do yourself. No one would ask a sailor to die because the President was busy ignoring this problem.
