Mr. Trump, do you have no decency?

I try not to be political in this blog, but I cannot be silent.

President Trump has a history of attacking service members and their families, which gives the lie to his claim that he supports the military.  He attacked Senator McCain, a gold star family, and now Admiral McRaven, a former Navy Seal and special operations commander, who lead the attack and capture of Osama bin Laden, the Al-Qaeda leader and one of America’s greatest enemies.

Trump is a man who avoided military service and who places self-interest above all else. Admiral McRaven, conversely, has lead a life of serving the United States of America. I am not concerned with the Admiral’s political views. I respect him no matter if conservative or liberal. He served the country honorably.

To paraphrase Joseph Welch, whose opposition to Senator McCarthy during the Army-McCarthy hearings helped end McCarthy’s cruel, unAmerican, and tyrannical approach to justice, I ask President Trump — Do you have no decency? Finally, Sir, do you have no decency?

President Trump, stop attacking our military.

  1. Here, here. You don’t run someone down, especially someone like the Admiral just because he said something you disagree with. And name calling? Isn’t that kind of grade school behavior. If you disagree with someone, say so, but try to understand where they’re coming from. You just might learn something. either way, you always have to respect the other guys opinion if you expect yours to be respected.

  2. Professor French, thank you so much for posting this important commentary! As a former a military wife, and having grown up in the a military family, it is difficult to believe that any military soldier or commissioned officer could ever be proud of or salute this President. thank you!
