CNN: Adm. McRaven Rips Trump in Op-Ed, Says ‘You Have Embarrassed Us...Humiliated Us on the World Stage’

‘You have embarrassed us, humiliated us on the world stage and worst of all divided us as a nation’


RAJU: "A highly respected military leader, a retired Navy admiral. William Mccraven led operations command from 2011 to 2014. He oversaw that Navy seal raid that led to the killing of Osama bin Laden, writing this scathing op Ed in the “Washington Post” going after the president in very direct terms, saying he has not risen to the presidency and saying, I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well. You have embarrassed us, humiliated us on the world stage and worst of all divided us as a nation. If you think for a moment your Mccarthy era tactics will suppress voices of criticism, you are sadly mistaken. Mccraven has been critical of this president in the past. He had some very strong remarks about the president calling the press the enemy of the people, calling it, quote, the greatest threat to democracy he’s ever seen. Of course, he’s seen a lot of threats to democracy over his years in the military, but very strong language today siding with someone that he has served with, John Brennan in light of this move by the president just yesterday."
