Trump Jr. Calls Bergdahl A Piece Of Sh*t In Crazy Thursday Afternoon Twitter Freakout

-

Donald Trump Jr. has no trouble doing battle — with endangered species. Yet, when it comes to those who actually face life and death for the U.S., Trump Jr., like his father, thinks he is the great expert.

Junior called Bowe Bergdahl a “POS.” The soldier left his post, and ended up captured by the Taliban. Two soldiers on the initial rescue mission lost their lives. The president’s son tweeted:

‘Are you kidding me? The white glove treatment this POS received is bad enough. More insults 2 those who died for him.’

Bergdahl pled guilty to desertion and misbehavior. His case is rife with controversy across the country.

The former soldier was convicted and dishonorably discharged, but he avoided any jail time.

Bergdahl has been in the news again, because he has the possibility of getting as much as $300,000 in back pay from the U.S. Army for the five years he spent in captivity.

Donald Trump Sr. famously criticized former Navy pilot and Vietnam captive for five and a half years, Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona. POLITICO reported that the president said:

‘He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.’

Of course, the president took five deferrals to avoid going to Vietnam. Four were for education, and the fifth was for alleged bone spurs.

President Barack Obama invited Bergdahl’s parents to the White House after the military rescued their son in 2014.

Normally, a captured soldier starts running up back pay the moment he or she was captured. However, this case may be different.

A G-1 spokesperson, Lt. Col. Randy Taylor told The Army Times, the Army has not determined that back pay, due to the ongoing legal proceedings.

HAILEY, ID – JULY 13: A banner hangs outside a store window, one of the few public displays of support for freed Afghan POW Bowe Bergdahl remaining downtown in his hometown on July 13, 2014 in Hailey, Idaho. Yellow ribbons that lined Hailey’s Main Street constantly for the nearly five years Bergdahl was held captive are now mostly gone as are most of the signs of support that appeared in the store windows along the street after the town learned of his release. The national euphoria following Bergdahl’s release quickly faded as a bitter debate ensued over whether he had deserted his post and whether his freedom was worth the risk of swapping five high-level Taliban prisoners being held in U.S. custody at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. A celebration scheduled for June 28, in Hailey was cancelled over security concerns after the town received hundreds of complaints and threats of protest. Bergdahl, who has been getting help reintegrating to life after captivity at Fort Sam Houston in Texas, has not yet returned to Hailey. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)

Taylor said:

‘Based upon the results of trial, the Army is reviewing Sgt. Bergdahl’s pay and allowances. His final pay and allowances will be determined in accordance with DoD (Department of Defense) policy and Army regulation.’

Twitter was all over the story:
