Trump’s Acting Navy Sec. Resigns One Day After Being Caught On Tape Calling Fired Captain ‘Stupid’

Acting secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly resigned from his post on Tuesday after being caught on tape attacking Capt. Brett Crozier in a call with the crew of the USS Roosevelt after the captain’s letter to leaders begging for help was revealed online, according to CNN.

In the tape, Modly was recorded accusing Crozier of committing a “betrayal” and creating a “big controversy” in Washington by spreading his letter so widely among the Navy.

He went on to say that the captain was either “too naive” or “stupid” to do his job.

Modly received backlash from other sailors, who even yelled profanities back at him.

Just 24-hours later, he sent his resignation. It hasn’t been revealed if Donald Trump accepted it.
