The Toad may have gotten involved - the gutless acting SECNAV just RESIGNED, possibly due to a severe case of shoeleather in his colon because he caused Toad even MORE embarrassment than the Captain had. But rest assured, his resignation had nothing to do with his total lack of qualifications for ANY responsible job and everything to do with embarrassing the ToadPOTUS.

The Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly blasted the now ousted commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt as "stupid" in an address to the ship's crew Monday morning, in remarks obtained by CNN.

 

Modly few from Washington to Guam to personally deliver that "nasty" speech to the crew of that naval ship. Why? Was he on drugs? Forget Trump, the virus, or whatever else any might think of. What possible purpose could he have had for doing that?
 
Seems to me personally, if that nut job was not on drugs, he needs to be.

Apparently the Acting Secretary character is already is in the process of being thrown under the bus.

 

"Esper's office told acting Navy secretary to apologize for his remarks on ousted aircraft carrier ca..."  

 

"Defense Secretary Mark Esper told acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly that he must apologize for his remarks slamming the former commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, two US officials tell CNN, prompting Modly's late-night about-face apology which was issued just hours after he defended his comments to the aircraft carrier's crew.

 

One official said Esper's staff communicated to Modly that he needed to apologize."

Just a note of caution on the Defense Secretary. This morning the Esper told us what the Sec. of Navy said was ok, and now this afternoon it was bad. Lets  look at what really happened. The ship Capt. stood up for his people and it got out, and made Trump look bad. Trump goes after the Def. Sec. and  Navy Sec. and wants them to take action. If you read or hear the speech given by the Navy Sec. it really tears apart the crew and basically tells them if you know whats good for you never do that again or you will suffer. (That message was meant for all members of the armed forces.) The speech sounded like the Mob Boss or one of his aides talking to mob members. It was NY Mob speech, and only Trump knows that.) Notice Trump when speaking about it said over and over again the Capt. was wrong but he might have had a bad day. Only once that I heard did Trump say the Sec. of Navy got carried away, but he was a good man and decided to quit for the good of the country (Trump). (NY Mob speak for I threw him under the bus.)

If Trump cancels the election by declaring Martial Law he needs the military to enforce it, and he does not want a coup from the military as that can happen to a person taking over as Dictator. Turkey is a prime example a few years ago.

I doubt the rank and file of the military appreciates a respected leader being dragged through the mud like that idiot did to Crozier.  Further Modley went as far as to also berate the crew for cheering the Captain as he left the carrier.


The US and Vietnam announced in the same week of January that the virus had arrived.  trump had time to cancel the ceremonial celebration.  I think he wanted to thump his nose at China while he was doing exactly that to the Virus, still...in March!  He purposfully put the lives of thousands of military personnel at risk over his freaking hunch.  When the s hits the fan, he berates them for going ashore!  trump own this.  The rank and file, his rank and file have no reason for confidence in him any longer.  The jig is up for his fake/persona of leadership.

Suggest all read mine and some other posts on this. You all realize the acting Sec. flew from DC to Guam to make the remarks. How much did that cost since he would have used a NAVY plane. If Trumps thinks he will be helped in the falls election  by getting rid of the acting Sec. he will throw him under the bus so do not get all excited if he is gone. The Sec. of Defence had to have known about this ahead of time, and approved it, and my guess is so did Trump.  You have to keep the people who do the work in line, and that is what was being done but it might have backfired on the Trump lackeys.The lackeys never act on big items such as this with out the Dictator knowing. Lets see if the Sec. of Defence is fired also. He should be.
