Acting Navy secretary quits after he ripped captain pleading for help over coronavirus


WASHINGTON — The Navy’s top civilian has resigned following after he criticized an aircraft carrier captain who pleaded for help with a coronavirus outbreak on his ship, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The latest revelation comes hours after acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly apologized after ridiculing USS Theodore Roosevelt captain Brett Crozier.

That feckless douche never should have come within 100 miles of the job he was given. Trump has an unparalleled knack for finding unqualified hacks who humiliate themselves while embarrassing the country.

Trump removes inspector general overseeing $2 trillion coronavirus relief package days after he was appointed

WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump has removed the lead watchdog overseeing the $2 trillion coronavirus package, just days after the official, Glenn Fine, was appointed to the role.

The move came as Trump pursued similar action in recent weeks against independent inspectors general across the federal government.

Fine had been the acting Pentagon inspector general until Monday afternoon, when Trump abruptly removed him from his post.

“Yesterday, the President nominated Mr. Jason Abend for the position of DoD Inspector General,” said Dwrena Allen, a spokesperson for the Defense Department’s Inspector General, in a statement to CNBC.

Finding the right person for the job is sometimes trial and error
Finding the right person for the job is sometimes a matter of having qualified candidates being vetted by qualified staff. Not hiring sycophantic yes men who are willing to do Don's bidding without reservation.

I'm still wondering why in the hell they fired the CO for taking care of his crew?
He supposedly violated the Chain of Command, allowed embarrassing info (his letters / memos be leaked to the press, and they probably rebuked him for 'Conduct un-becoming an Officer' for his actions / speech in front of his men - which is not to say I agree or disagree. (I don't know enough of the actual details of everything that happened to pass any type of judgment / make any calls).

The United States Navy has approximately 500,000 personnel right now. I doubt that the President will have much trouble finding another SECNAV.
Yet he already had trouble or he wouldn't have appointed a hack.

We've already seen how Trump hires and fires people. If they agree with him and pledge total loyalty to him (not the country), they are hired and allowed to work in his cabinet. The second they start to disagree with him is when he starts to not like them and their job security becomes questionable. Disagree with him long enough, and he will get rid of you, even if you disagreeing with Trump was the correct choice.

Anyone remember how highly he spoke of Mattis and Bolton? They disagreed with Trump, and it was because Trump was wrong and they were trying to keep him from getting into trouble. Trump didn't like it, and fired them. Bolton even warned that if Trump fired him, impeachment would become a reality, because Trump doesn't know what is going on and continually breaks rules.

You never miss an opportunity to turn things political either. The above post is a very good example.

Donald Trump is the President of the United States, and the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.

It's his prerogative to hire and fire whomever he wants, not yours. You're just some insignificant and anonymous schmuck on an internet discussion board, so in the big picture of things, your opinion doesn't matter one way or the other.
