Dem Rep. Gallego Rips Trump Supporters as ‘Angry White Men and Women’ Who Align with Confederacy

‘We don’t have Ho Chi Minh airport, we don’t have Rommel Airfield’

On Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM’s The Dean Obeidallah Show, Obeidallah talked with Gallego about Trump’s repeated and vehement opposition to renaming bases, asking Rep. Gallego “What’s your reaction to continuing to name military installations and took up arms and killed members of the United State Military?”

“I mean it’s absolutely disgusting,” Gallego said. “We don’t have Ho Chi Minh airport, we don’t have Rommel Airfield. These people were traitors. Not only that, they were traitors and they were outright white supremacists.”

He also pointed out that “we certainly shouldn’t be honoring them with bases where our military is extremely diverse. Like, how does it feel if you’re a black man having to go to these slaveholders that tried to overthrow the union, named bases? It’s ridiculous.”
