The Double Standard in the Way President Trump is Evaluated For Supporting a Navy SEAL. By Capt Joseph R. John
Excerpt: The double standard in the way President Trump has been evaluated when compared to Obama continues. Obama’s actions in pardoning Bo Bergdahl, a traitor, who deserted his fellow combatants in the face of the enemy, then gave the Taliban Top Secret information, was ignored by Obama’s “Politically Correct” General and Flag Officers (including McRaven), his service secretaries, and the left of center liberal media establishment. They didn’t object to the pardoning of a “Traitor”, in exchange for 5 of the Taliban’s most senior Terrorist Generals who are now killing US military combatants in Afghanistan. The double standard manifested itself by exposing Obama’s “Politically Correct” Flag and General Officers, Obama’s holdovers at DOD, and the left of center liberal media establishment when they raised unending complaints for many weeks because President Trump re-instated a heroic combat warrior’s rank, after he was found “not guilty” in a Courts Martial. There was no need to pardon the warrior, SOC Edward “Eddie” Gallagher, USN (SEAL), like Obama pardoned the traitor, Chelsea Manning.
