After a military judge ruled on Friday that Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl would get no prison time after pleading guilty to desertion/misbehavior before the enemy (he actually defected), the POTUS exploded on Twitter, calling the decision to spare the traitorous army soldier from doing time to be “a complete disgrace to our Country and Military”. Here’s the tweet:
‘The decision on Sergeant Bergdahl is a complete and total disgrace to our Country and to our Military.’

Then-candidate Trump also said during an October campaign rally back in 2015 that, let me quote:
“You probably can’t do it, but if I win I may just have him flown back in the middle of that place and dropped, right in the middle. Let them have him, let him have them. That’s cheaper than a bullet,”
The story goes something like this: Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl pleaded guilty to abandoning his post and entering Taliban-controlled territory (back in 2009), which is basically desertion in not so many words. He was then taken prisoner by the Taliban and held captive for years. At one point during his 5 year long captivity, the traitorous marine converted to Islam and declared himself a mujahid (a fighter for Islam), openly fraternizing with his, well, enemies. Hell, he was even allowed to carry a gun, according to documents revealed by Fox News a few years ago.
In 2014, former President Barrack Obama then negotiated his freedom in exchange for releasing five high-ranking Taliban leaders (read terrorists chieftains) who were taken prisoners in Afghanistan and held captive in Guantanamo Bay.
Sergeant Bergdahl’s desertion also caused for six of his comrades to be killed and many others to be maimed and injured, as a search party was assembled to rescue him from the Taliban.
The shocking decision announced on Friday by a military judge is very hard to explain, as desertion is usually punished with a life in prison sentence. However, the military judge, Colonel Jeffrey Nance respectively, has said in the past that he would consider President Trump’s negative comments about Sergeant Bergdahl:
“I will consider the president’s comments as mitigation evidence as I arrive at an appropriate sentence.”
Bergdahl was given a dishonorable discharge and was de-ranked from Sergeant to Private; also, he received a $10,000 fine. So we can assume that President Trump’s negative comments about Bergdahl’s treason contributed to the leniency of the sentence from a progressive military judge, right?
This whole story has been rotten from the very beginning. Bergdahl abandons his post in June of 2009 as a Pfc. He then receives a promotion to specialist in June 2010, even though the Army knows he is a potential traitor.
And then he gets another promotion to Sergeant in June 2011 with Brig. Gen. Rick Mustion traveling to Hailey, Idaho to deliver the promotion certificate to his parents. He gets exchanged for 5 high-value terrorists and now this. The American people have been ‘Oakey-Doked’ and there are 6 patriot families with nothing but a folded flag.
