Bad Order: Navy Secretary Spencer Out After Trump Steps Into SEAL-Trident Controversy
Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer gets fired. Defense Secretary Mark Esper says Spencer is out for attempting a dishonest back-channel deal with President Trump that bucked the chain of command. Spencer said he’s out because he could not, in good conscience, follow the Commander-in-Chief’s tweeted “order” to let SEAL Eddie Gallagher retire with his Trident, rather than facing a review board — and potentially being forced out — for taking an inappropriate picture with an enemy corpse. Bill Whittle does something you almost never see in the mainstream media — he thinks through the ethical implications, rather than making a political calculation then assembling talking points.
