The one ray of sunshine in all this is that Trump says he's getting involved. If he does, obviously we can't believe what he says, but if he does jump in we're looking at an epic fail. He's never figured out how to treat the military. Epic fail. Epic.

    And now the "acting" Secretary has apologized for his unprofessional behavior...sigh.     Will the Captain be given back his ship once he recovers from covid19?    A failure to reinstate this Navy Captain, should be sufficient to have the "acting" to be removed from his position.

Acting Navy Secretary Blasts Ousted Aircraft Carrier Captain As 'Stupid' In Address To Ship's Crew

 

If this guy ever actually goes into combat with men and or women under his command I think he's going to be fragged.

Trump says he may 'get involved' in case of Navy captain removed from duty


Maybe he has slides to show us of the USS Roosevelt's diplomatic days spent in Vietnam last month.

 

On 23 January, Vietnam confirmed the first two cases of COVID-19,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_coronavirus_pandemic_in_Vietnam

 

In a phone interview with Sean Hannity on March 4, Trump contradicted public health experts’ estimates of the death rate for Covid-19 — based on a “hunch.”

.. in order to reassure nervous Americans and a jittery economy,

but instead created a much more dangerous situation where people weren’t taking the virus seriously enough.

March 5,  ~ U.S. aircraft carrier visits Vietnam to celebrate diplomatic ties ~

The ceremony also included other Vietnamese officials, U.S. government officials and military officials....

 

The visit will include cultural exchanges, community service projects, sports competitions and receptions....

 

Capt. Brett Crozier, … "We are honored to take part in this important port visit and to receive such a warm welcome."

Mission Accomplished

Two weeks after the ship visited Da Nang, Vietnam, a country with known coronavirus cases.”.... The ship is in trouble, in Guam, and dt has a sacrifical lamb served up to take the blame for him.  And he slaughtered it.  His further input will never find its way to even, appropriate.

 

March 31, 2020  - Ship Captain’s letter to Pacific Fleet commanders asks Navy to move crew off ship to save lives

In a statement Tuesday, the Navy acknowledged the letter was sent to leadership of the Pacific Fleet.

Trump says he may 'get involved' in case of Navy captain removed from duty

 

Trump said Monday that he may "get involved" in the case of Navy captain removed from the command of the USS Theodore Roosevelt.

 

No doubt about that since he could see negative results from the military and veteran vote in November.  

The mistake a lot of politicians make is forgetting
they've been appointed but thinking they've been anointed.

Now all can see for themselves what Trump has done to our military with the lackeys he has appointed to run it. Their first mission is to do what Trump wants and never interfere with what he does on the way to being full Dictator of this country. His  Sec. of Defence backed the acting Sec. of Navy today in what he did. I have said before the Sec. of Defence was appointed as he was a lackey to Trump. He sold his soul to get the job. Mad Dog was not and fought Trump, and that is why Trump got rid of him. As one poster said Trump should not get one vote from the Vets., Members of the Armed Forces, all true Americans in Nov. if we have elections. Dictator Trump, far right Reb., Trump enablers at work destroying the country.

Just like all the others who serve a Toad.

Gotta love an NCO who quotes Tennyson. I'd vote for this guy.

A trait of a good Commanding Officer is that he/she stands up for his/her people.  I would think and hope that the administration has lost the support (and votes) of every veteran and active duty military in the November elections.
