Cadet Bonespurs has overruled the Navy, who was seeking to remove war criminal Eddie Gallagher from the Seals, and now, Gallagher will get to keep his status as a Seal.

Well, well. Trump sure does stick up for fellow criminals, doesn't he?

But True Patriots, he smears.

Hmm.

This is very dangerous.  What is the intent do you suppose?

I don't know.

One scenario is because he can. You know, like a child having a meltdown.

Another scenario is appeasing the right-wingers who supported the trio of war criminals being pardoned.

Yes, it is dangerous.

It tells the world and the military that the US has no standards, no values and doesn't give a Crap about right and wrong.

In other words, we are a craphole, amoral country.

😳

Hmm.

I'm not arguing if this action is right or wrong, just adding some context that is missing from your post.  You are welcome.

Yesterday, or the day before, NPR ran a piece about veterans upset over Trump pardoning the three war criminals.

Since the Navy, went out of its way to kick Gallagher out of the Seals, and the Pentagon, didn't want the war criminals pardoned, I find it suspect that somehow Trump thinks these are good guys.

I know I was taken by one veteran who pointed out in the NPR piece, just how many members of Gallagher's unit, testified AGAINST him.

Yet, Trump pardoned him.

Hmm.

Hmm.

Trump didn't pardon him. I believe the headline is inaccurate.

From today's WaPo: 

'Insurgents' Sought War Crimes Pardons With Little Pentagon Involvement Official Says

Yes, Trump gave into the requests and wishes of right-wing outlets, over that of the Pentagon and Navy.

Of course it is his prerogative to do so, but please read how unusual this was, and the crimes are horrific.

Again, not a hero in the bunch. Just a three amigos, who are war criminals.

You know how all racists are Trump supporters?

Read about the anti-Muslim group called, Security, something something, in today's WaPo, holding a gala at: (GASP) Mar-a-Lago!!!

This lovely group of folks, spread the unfounded rumor that Obama is Muslim.

They should feel welcomed and embraced at Mar-a-Lago.

Trump hosted Zuckerberg for undisclosed dinner at the White House in October

The meeting took place during Zuckerberg’s most recent visit to Washington, where he testified before Congress about Facebook’s new cryptocurrency Libra...

...  The dinner was the second meeting between Zuckerberg and Trump in a month. Zuckerberg also met with the president in the Oval Office during a September visit to the capital...

...    The Facebook chief is not the only high-profile tech executive to have met with the president recently. On Wednesday, Trump and Apple CEO Tim Cook toured an Apple manufacturing plant in Austin, Texas.

Trump and Cook have maintained a very public working relationship as the Apple CEO seeks to keep Apple products exempt from the president’s tariffs on China...

I wonder if any deal making here also includes personal favors for the Liar in Chief. Mulvaney said they do it all the time.

Anybody have any ideas as to why Trump is so insistent on sticking up for war criminals?

The Navy clearly doesn't want this one, yet Trump overruled officials.
