Watch: Former Army General Demolishes ‘Jackass’ Trump For Attacking Navy Seals
During an interview on CNN on Sunday, former U.S. Army General Mark Hertling slammed “President” Donald Trump’s “unprofessional” comments against retired Navy Admiral William H. McRaven.
Trump attacked the Navy SEALs for not finding Osama bin Laden sooner and dismissed McRaven as a “Hillary Clinton fan.”
“What I would say in terms of my reaction is we can never become immune to this kind of narrative, to this kind of jackassery,” Hertling declared on CNN.
Hertling, who served as the commanding general of U.S. Army Europe and the Seventh Army, noted that McGraven is a good friend.
“We both have served during the same period of time and under multiple presidents from both parties,” Hertling said. “We serve in the military the Constitution of the United States — we don’t serve an individual. That’s what makes our military different from all the other militaries in the world.”
“This comment from the president was disrespectful, demoralizing, it was shallow and it was unprofessional,” he concluded.
