Trump Reacts to Bergdahl’s Sentence

President Trump tweeted Friday that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s sentence– a dishonorable discharge, but no prison time for leaving his post in June 2009 — was a “complete and total disgrace.”

More than eight years after Bergdahl walked off his base in Afghanistan — and unwittingly into the clutches of the Taliban — Bergdahl walked out of a North Carolina courtroom a free man Friday. Bergdahl, who pleaded guilty to endangering his comrades, was fined, reduced in rank to E1 and dishonorably discharged — but he received no prison time.

Instead, he gets off with being busted to E-1 and given a dishonorable discharge??? BIG F*****G DEAL! His fellow soldiers got the death penalty and did NOTHING wrong EXCEPT to go searching for that lowlife POS slug.… Read more »

The judge is a total disgrace to our nation and to our military men,
who carry out their duties to this country.
The judge needs to be kicked off the bench.
