  1. “he could call ask or suggest” as if he didn’t exauast any and all options. This would still be being neglected if he wouldn’t have acted

    When he had the gall to say ‘we hold leaders accountable for their actions’ I just about threw up.

    The sad reality is that politicians deem the lives, limbs, and blood of true Patriots expendable.

  4. ” shows accountability towards his actions.” To bad the same isn’t true for this administration.

  5. Esper: We hold leaders accountable for their actions. So trump must not be a leader then because none of you repube incubi hold him accountable for anything

    This whole administration has its eyes on the unjust ways of all Being-lobbyists ….

    Yeah, I see what’s going on here. Anytime someone makes a move ahead of our president they get “fired”. I’d rather serve under that captain than our president…

    Fired for protecting his crew……..this is how far we’ve sunk.

  10. “An example of how we hold leaders accountable for their actions “… from a trump appointee. Irony is dead.

  11. Mark Esper – “This shows how we hold leaders accountable for their actions.” . . . but this doesn’t apply to my BOSS.

      @Victor Mason *hey dummy, the captain alerted the “so called chain of command” about the outbreak of covid 19 and the repercussions that it may cause due to the proximity of those infected with those not infected , but ultimately it will cause devastating damage had he not taken prompt and efficient action but the buffoon at the white house fired him because he views the captain as a democratic mole*

    • @Victor Mason Chain of Retards Drumpftard. You link it.

    • ‼✅‼Can’t wait to read Captain Crozier’s book on LEADERSHIP! AND, then will be excited to see the made for TV movie based on Captain Crozier’s novel‼✅‼

    • @Victor Mason – I agree. When I heard what he did, I knew his USN career was over, but Chain of Command goes both ways. I don’t ever recall a civilian authority like the Sec. of Defense or Sec. of Navy publicly relieving a ship captain. If we go with the Chain of Command, the commander of the 7th Fleet or his deputy commander would have been the authority to relieve a captain. When Sec. Esper publicly fired the captain, there were no flag officers present. I thought that was very odd.

    • @Victor Mason that’s the most boot licking comment I’ve ever read.

  12. “Over half the crew has been tested!” Why haven’t all of them been tested? How many days has it been?

    • By now *all* of them have been tested four times. Still can’t find enough infected to satisfy everyone, so now the claims will be that the Navy is lying. You could be the first, don’t pass up this opportunity!!

    “Trump wants him fired”. Ok, that explains it.

  14. I just don’t believe Mark Esper, I have lost “faith and confidence” in anybody from President Trump’s team.

  15. Translation: We don’t want our underlings making us look bad when we are incompetent

  16. A person with honor and courage will stand for his men, even if the cost is loss of command! I can see that every few understand honor,

    “Hold leaders accountable for their actions?????” DAFUK you say!

  18. The honorable Captain Brett Crozier earned his spurs in lifelong service to America while traitor trump had his daddy buy his

  19. “This isn’t a class in literature “ our leader.

  20. Trump: “Writing a letter is terrible. He should’ve tweeted it. Nobody writes letters anymore.”
