He went off on Imus. Basically you know pissed on his grave because that's a brave move to do right. You pissed on I Mrs Grave. He he came back from one of his month vacations and then his first order of business was to get right into it and trash imus as I'm as his lane cold in the ground somewhere. That's real brave. Howard you're a brave man? I hope that Fed. You're stupid fat fucking. Can you go all right. Let me read. This Howard doesn't get a lot of prestige days so it's another reason why he decided to go after imus because he knows everybody would talk about it. But he's such a fucking loser most of us most of US human beings you know when when you have a beef with someone and and you really dislike someone and you go out back and forth for years and then that person ends up dying. Most of us are human beings. We actually let it go. I was gonNA start seeing let it go from frozen and I decided that would be really really fucking stupid. All right from the Daily News finally finally back from the holidays. Howard stern addressed passing fellow shock jock? Don I miss with the message of indifference Monday. He said and hi quote. I don't fucking care and soon as Howard says I don't fucking care you know. He cares a lot so you know he's about to go off. The self proclaimed King of all media returned to the airwaves Monday and started the New Year by kicking dirt on the grave of the late. Dj A who many consider to be a rival. Stern said he was. I shocked by news of his death as was his sidekick Robin quivers then the pair said on their Sirius. XM morning show that they will ultimately remember Imus as racist Anti Semite of limited talent. Holy Shit Oh this Howard Stern for whatever reason needs the world to know that he's the greatest human being Tabora live good luck. What could you got great competition with Donald Trump there? Howard you've bought in lows sir? Oh my God first of all the the amount of racist material that Howard put out on on the airwaves over. The years was probably way more than what I'm did. And then the beauty thirty of imus. He didn't start going through his archives and editing. Out All the edgy crazy. Material to make himself look better like Howard has been doing for the last few years he wants everyone to just you know think that he never was a racist and never did racist material on his radio show He. He got away with way more than the average shocked. Because he had robin quivers sitting there co-signing for the whole thing making it easier because it's easier to do racist stuff off if you got a black person in the room with you Let's see let's continue with this article from the Daily News. Amen thank you thank thank you. There was no charm there with I'm stern said after announcing we were entering an free decade and twenty twenty yeah. He used to have a K.. AKA member on his show. But Howard doesn't want you to know that anymore. He's he's he's rewriting his own history and then he goes after missing saying he was a racist according to Stern. And this is bullshit This might be all that all those years of therapy. He says he feels sympathy for Mrs Family. But his grief ends there I went back and listen to and read some of the shit he said about us and about other people it was like I don't fucking care. Stern said stern recall that one of his biggest. The problem with this is that the cowboys had wearing hose frequently took credit for being a trailblazer went. According to Stern Sixty five his seventy nine year old colleague changes own act when both men were at NBC and Stern Star began to rise. Of course of course. Of course. I'm doing doing it wrong until you came along. Our of course fucking delusional man fucking delusional. I never saw myself as someone who came from the School of broadcasting. Stern said I felt like I miss came from my school of broadcasting. yuck according to stern I miss made a career out of claiming to be his chief competitor though the feeling was never mutual. Are you kidding me for a long time. They were competitors patters. I'll stroke your ego today there. Howard I mean but in the end you had had the big show yes but you absolutely were competitors for very very long time? It was total. Bullshit it was fake news like trump saying some bullshit about how he had a bigger crowd than Obama. Stern said. I'm said it enough times that people start believing wing it. There is absolutely zero evidence to support this. He wasn't number two to my number one. I was in fact number one. How we're losing a ship because Don Imus died? That's crazy man bro. You're still living and breathing and you're getting closer and closer to a billionaire. Yeah when you. When are you going to be happy? What is it gonNA take for you to be happy? Oh my God all right where where was I all right. He was like number twenty any three in the market but he's somehow thought the rest of the radio dial didn't exist. Stern finds it telling that I'm as frequently sought to align himself with him but the opposite wasn't isn't always true. That isn't true. Howard especially in the last ten fifteen years of his career? He barely mentioned you. He was doing his own thing. Every obituary about Imus mentions me by the second paragraph. You said I could tell you when I die. I don't think there'll be mentioning. I miss. He's just happy that he's finally getting some press to this guy. He's hours insane. He's absolutely insane. Howard Stern is the next Bruce Jenner? I said that a while ago. You stealing my material James Evans. I said a while ago I said that Howard is very jealous. Ellison pissed off that Bruce Jenner beat them to the punch now. I don't know anything but I'm just saying Howard stern invented Don Imus all right didn't go head to head with our for a long time before our went up I I mean they worked penetrators they absolutely were competitors and they didn't like each other but but tha to piss on his grave. Now that he's dead is so fucking lame and petty. I can't tell you he should know. Oh better most. People drop their beeps when someone dies that they didn't like let's see quivers said her discuss. Brian has started when he called Her the N.. Word in the hallway at NBC. I'm is called into the show to claim he'd in fact I He'd in fact called her a Negro which he followed up by asking if she prefer are being called by different. Racial Epithet. All right. That's a little rough but I but I wasn't in the hallways. That day was joking. Do they have such problems that he went. There decided to go for the atom bomb. I don't know but Howard's not innocent when it comes to that racial shit. We all know that according adding to stern and other black colleagues at I'm had insulted her with the same language racial insensitivity will surely be a big big part of Obama's legacy most notable notable was his NC insult of the rutgers. Women's basketball team play as nappy headed. HOS during a two thousand seven broadcast. Whatever I mean Howard did that type of shit as well? I mean you know a short time after insulting quivers oakwoods call them a sniveling coward. Wow Wow Robin short time. After insulting quivers Imus referred to stern as a Jew bastard during the nineteen eighty-four interview. And what you suggested. His rival should be put in an oven. There you go. That's a little rough. It's rough but you've got two guys that don't like each other so they were kind of thrown. Some you know some atomic bombs at each other all right. They have recordings to support their claims. I've been around that my whole life stern said when you're smarter than someone okay outward art and you're just better at it than someone and they're desperate to get to you the real pigs go to the Jew bastard comment because they think that cuts through you okay. Okay like you haven't said really horrible shit to people because you were pissed off. According to Stern I'm issued have thanked him for setting precedent that radio personalities can make a name for themselves by talking about the day's events without playing records though he contends he didn't get the point of imus skits nor did the nor did he find him. Am Clever. How is the obituary? Going stern laugh toward the end of his tirade. Hug Stern of luck stern invented everything thing. There you go. That's what he needs to feed that faulk in Eagle of his shortly before retiring from radio in March I'm told. CBS Sunday Sunday morning. Whatever bad blood stern felt toward him wasn't reciprocated when they worked together that'd be say between eighty two and eighty five or since he had a big problem with me? I said I didn't with him. So there you have it. I think I think it's just completely ridiculous and how it went down that road. He should have just fucking faulk let it be man. The guy's gone. Yeah he's a big man who can't let the dead rest there you go James Evans. Yeah have you ever spoken our one on one. No I did. Not You know the story. I sit start saying hi to them in the hallway and he did that and I think he told his story about how I miss one let people people say hi to him and radio stations and I'm sitting there on my couch. Holy Fuck Howard do the same shit that he's claiming that I'm as did Komo fired up. Sorry I apologize. This was supposed to be a nice little. Hey let's look at the sunset but I saw that in the daily news is I think it's I. I really do think it's petty and pathetic to go down that road after someone dies..

"Note I lost a a friend and a an idol of mine over the holiday season don Imus don the last message I got from dawn was August nineteenth and it was this it was just a picture of him and it had said at the bottom check I've been taken at the wake we look how bad it is I mean the the whatever yeah yes see what of what it and all he wrote was Glenn back Glenn Beck is my leader I have responded he is still look in this sexy I'm doing is he was so brutal in his in his humor that he appreciated it coming back to him when he was a respected PPL who who knew a yells like Ricky Jr vase I think Ricky Jr base is today's don Imus you know their jokes their jokes there are not there's nothing more behind them their jokes what's the what's the meanest thing I can say as a joke and if he meant it he wouldn't have said it as a joke he would have said it and said no I really mean that is this don had a problem with anyone who was a fraud don had a problem with anyone who really didn't know what they believed in and and work our glee and and and and that man really even coming after him I remember the first time I was on his show is TV show I was scared out of my mind because you are you're dealing with I think of the brightest minds on radio he was by far the smartest most well read the genius mon on radio but I imagine absolute legend legend he is talk radio wouldn't exist if it wasn't for don Imus in sports talk radio definitely would exist right sports talk radio would exist Howard Stern probably wouldn't exist illegally trail for sure I mean don Imus is in the category of the hall of fame that only really is the rarefied air of of Bob Hope and Jack Benny I mean he is he is the pioneer of radio as it's done today and no matter what anybody says he was not a racist he was not a racist he and I'm not an apologist for Tom it our for don if they were or yeah or tire for that matter yeah in bill if if if he had racist tendencies I would say something the other thing is he wasn't right wing either I was reading a a column about him shortly it was pretty glowing other than this in it some section of the article of the person wrote what's your right wing coke yes but it wasn't it could not you know like right when you put why would you put don Imus why would the press put don Imus on to the the White House press dinner yeah during the let the during the Monica Lewinsky trial or shortly thereafter but knowing what he was going to say because you're from the start yeah because they thought he was a friend a game player he was a game player John donne was not a game player name any stretch when he looked at Bill Clinton and made his jokes about you know he'll be he'll sleep with any fat check always face when was phenomenal and he kept going he just kept going crossing swords with him was one of the greatest experiences of my life knowing don Imus and being able to foster a relationship with him I went back and I listened to some of the old things that we had done together and I looked at some of the things that we wrote to each other one of my one of the last pictures he showed he sent to me he sent a picture of him in the hospital and he just looked like dog crap and and it all it said was at least I'm not fat like you it's really a it's just brilliant just brilliant and I said something to him and like in my I went on the air with him and I did not know I knew he was he was saying this guy's crazy guys absolutely out of his mind crazy and so when I went on to a show I knew don respects I think don respects people who are smart and can cross swords with him and hold their own and I could be just as sarcastic and dark as don could be any day and so I decided to really go after him I don't remember what it was but I remember we went into the break and they held me and they went into a break and he looked at me and this is how much of a racist he was he looked at me and he smiled and I said how is that he said as good may look down and he said I know you're interested in native American history and I said yes and he said there's a book that you'll really appreciate and he told me about a book I can't remember what it was now I have in my library and he said any thoughts of we were the good guys there it'll be it'll all be dispelled when you read this and I said oh okay I'll read it and I did it showed to me how deep of a thinker he was how much she knew who his guests were and how not racist he was and then we got back on the air in hammered each other some more and in my first or second email I think was maybe my first I made the joke about how Jeter is wife wanted him to die before you burn through all of the cash and and I felt a sense it was one of the well it wasn't that nice it was really I do remember this is my I mean or the way it was described yeah it was really mean it and so bad after I sent it I thought what if the I didn't put a smiley face he'd kill you if you put a smiley face right and I can put a smiley face I one of the so I wrote to him before he wrote back and I said Hey don just I just want you know I was joking on the last hero back in he said you and I will not be friends if you ever write something like that to me again if you don't say I can take a joke and know what a joke is from you we're not going to be friends the only thing that you ever did that pissed him off yeah yeah because he knew what a joke was right and Ricky jerkface knows what do you know how many times he said at the beginning of his is golden globes it's just a joke he says all job with getting yeah and took himself down first right forty took anybody else down right and he's like I don't care I just don't get and that was don Imus now let me tell you something the the rest of the story you've probably heard me tell the story before that I was sitting in Roger ailes office and Roger said to me and I don't know if I revealed that it was Roger ailes said this on the air but Roger ailes said to me you know what your problem is you won't play the game and I said um Noel no I know I won't and he said that's the problem look do you not think I in New what al Sharpton wanted now what what he was talking about was don Imus he said do you not think that that al Sharpton called me before he sent a bus load of people over here to picket against don Imus did he did you not think that we had already negotiated what was how this was going to and he just needed a pound of flesh he wanted don's pound of flesh so I gave it to him and some day I'll get a pound of flesh from him that's the way it works I knew that NBC knew that we all know that but don was in a game player either and don refused to play the game that should be a badge of honor that should be that should be in his obituary that's what people should be talking about not the lie that he was a racist he wasn't that was something that was perpetrated on him to destroy him because he wouldn't play the game as soon as everything became about politics and have to be about choosing sides don didn't choose sides John donne first of all always chose funny don't cocked funny there isn't anyone in within the sound of my voice maybe perhaps to comedians that refused to cut funding that used to be the deal we all knew it was a joke get over it even Ricky Gervais said last night going into the golden globes he said yeah well I turned everything over to the attorneys because I don't want to be sued for anything so he had to run everything through the N. B. C. attorneys so nobody in the room would sue him it's a joke I was surprised at how hard I knew it would be a hard day and I'm glad I wasn't on the air for a couple of days after I heard about don because I would have been able to keep my composure I lost a friend I lost a childhood idol and hero in this industry I lost one of the greatest minds to ever be on public airwaves I've never done this before but when I found out from an email from Pat I couldn't really even speak to my own family for awhile and so I went out in the dark in in the cold and lowered my flag because I think America also lost somebody who no matter how he voted or what he believed was the best politician he was a an American Eric can original and American that always stood and said to the truth no matter the cost.

This is one more David Frum Dan Perricone and I love this one and I think I know exactly where we're we're going to go with it. What's your favorite guys from? Texas just moved to New York story. Oh Man and you have an answer for this okay. You and I were not what we would call big cultural Texans when we were there in the sense that we were not you know. We didn't have a huge brush guard on our the F.. One fifty we you know didn't have Alan Jackson tapes and George Strait tapes. Just fallen out of the car radio but when we moved to New York we cultivated this kind of Texas at a distance Chur and Dan for a year or two years. You and I were almost nothing but cowboy shirts. Oh yeah the ones with like the those like Pearl Buttons and everything and a cart. Like Carl Hart Jackets and all that stuff we looked like don imus walk in the streets of the lower east side. I betray too much to say that when Brian I I moved to New York. Let's see I left tech. Brian left Texas before me. We we both kind of like took turns like moving but I ended up in New York about ten months before Brian got there and when and when he arrived drive we got an apartment together. He arrived that our new apartment. I guess I had already moved. In and Brian was wearing a khaki shorts an under shirt and sandals adults. He had just spent a year working on the Microsoft campus slate DOT COM and said I've been wearing this every day. I need some. Where do I go? L L look like Mark Zuckerberg in that sweet baby. Ray's clip that they always play anyway. Go ahead so yeah so we have that. That's not just Texas which I don't want to go. That's that's when we went to the guy at the first round of the of Western shirts. And what are we doing. Because I remember you and I would go to party. And we were basically inseparable at that point like we went to if one of US went to part of the other one was the party And we'd walk in like two rhinestone cowboys and just remember France. Who'd known us for? Just come up to one US and be like I didn't really know you guys have Kinda Gone Western. You know like you. I didn't even realize this shows much. I didn't realize we were dressed alike. I thought as long as we were in different color western shirts at our codes for different colors we weren't dressed alike. You know and I remember at some point someone pointing out that we had the same outfit on I was like what are you meet Okay I see CENEX. Yeah well you know. I thought that it was a good luck. I stand by it. We were we were rock in Texas for sure That's that's our favorite guys from Texas just moved into your story. There's also a part of like the Texas Culture Southern Culture in general is followed us here or you're waiting for us. I've definitely more the food or probably more southern food. You know generally broadly defined but definitely more barbecue in New York than I ever did in Texas with the South And and Western shirts were thing and we didn't just like you know. Have those imported from from this out. You know from from Laredo told.

"I don't know I mean. His campaign does feel different than campaigns of some of the others that have closed up shop but it it seemed like there is great potential for them at some point. I don't know quite how to put it works. I think that I really likely Castro Just about every performance. He gave the debate. I thought was was good. His campaign speeches. I thought were. I mean we're we're strong policy. Physicians were You Know He. He found ways the differentiate themselves and and while I didn't agree with everything completely I I appreciated when he was you know what he was trying to do. But I I think there's a lot of ways the postmortems for this Democratic primary will be really interesting ever writes the big book on it. I think is AH. It's GONNA be a lot to a lot to take in You know I I don't I don't know I don't know why it didn't work out for them. It's it's impossible to say now at the stage certainly looks a lot different got comma Harrison. Some of the others up there But you know I think that he had a his claim to the Obama legacy was obviously drowned out by Joe Biden His his I think the twenty thousand nine hundred twenty twenty minutes a rough time to run as a candidate who who had articles written about them for the past twenty years about how they're they will be a future president. I mean it's it's Kabul herbals. Yeah exactly and I and I don't I I don't know that that's that really is a reason. Why are those? These campaigns didn't work but you know it. It's a new. It did seem to be. It did seem like there. There would be more traction for his candidacy and the fact that there wasn't I think is just more evidence that were sort of uncharted territories when it comes to sing that said I guess that's that's not true because you look at it people who were less and doesn't really look like uncharted territory. Up there on the debate stage you know it looks like very charter territory. Sometimes I think these campaigns don't work they just don't work out yet you know it. Just it just wasn't and I've seen a lot of people. Try to draw big big conclusions from him dropping out. I'll totally if you WANNA talk about the even greater whiteness of the democratic nominees. I'm with you if you WANNA talk about campaign finance. I'm with you but there's also part of this where you just sometimes you just don't get any traction and as we talk about with Cory Booker even Amy Klobuchar. Shaw just you just don't know I will remember as you said his debate performances ripping into better work in June over decriminalizing Zim border crossings ripping into Biden in September. Are you forgetting what you what you said just two minutes ago. Interesting Castro's favorability went way down down when he attacked Biden. Liam Donovan made this point on twitter. Yesterday says clearly Castro had brought her issues in terms of getting traction but this is indicative of the dynamic. mcdade helps to insulate Biden. Nobody is willing to come at him. Directly less they end up like Kamala Harris or Castro other thing is that Castro really did. Did I think help move this campaign. In a Progressive Direction Ryan Eliza Politico tweets by far the greatest impact on the race was pushing the field on the the issue of decriminalizing border crossings. He rolled out the plan in April worn. Lighten adopted in most candidates were soon pushed to take a position. Could be a big issue in the fall. Castro campaigned in Flint Michigan in Puerto Rico. Right drawing attention to those communities Dave Weigel tweets that Castro joins Washington governor Jay Inslee as the only twenty twenty twenty Democrats who ended their campaigns with elevated reputations Castro shook off his image as an amiable lightweight and really move the ball on immigration impeachment. Housing Yeah so there's that I think that the the point you're getting at about I mean talking about his debate performances and at House favorability numbers went down. And I think that's really scient- point and I also think that you know it's it's tough to over. It's tough have to overstate how much how entrenched candidate candidates get now by by their performance in the polls olds and go back the where using the first segment the inevitable seeming inevitability of it right. I mean it's it's it's if all we're looking at is polling numbers. Joe Biden comes in with a huge name recognition unless your only option is to get a huge bounce. It's if you're not one of the top couple of candidates. Your only option is to swing for the fences and go for just ridiculous bounce coming out of the debate because otherwise what does will so what what what interest is in. MSNBC or Fox News or CNN having talking about the plausibility of your campaign and if no one's if no one's discussing you as Gospel Then you know that I mean honestly though like the only path forward is like trump did for years ago which is make himself so resistible to to these television networks that he created his own plausibility. Unless you're doing that I don't know how you I don't I don't know how any campaign can rise above rolling police supposed to be reflective -flective of what the voters are doing right and it is but now it also becomes a sort of like self-fulfilling prophecy. And all we cover is this sort of you know the circulate the circular the nature of the whole thing. I don't know it's are now. I'm with you on wanting to read the the after action report here. I know that I know the game chain series has been canceled suld but I look forward to somebody who has all I. I'm not sure I really understand what's happened to Elizabeth Elizabeth Warren over the last month and change. I really don't we've talked about some of the things of 'EM I don't understand why she's her fortunes of turned downward. This apparently the sharply airplane. But I'm eager to read the thing at the end. Because I think I think there's a lot of a lot of nuance here and a lot of this will be an interesting story to tell. Let's talk about Don Imus. David Don Imus died and all the kind of news wired twitter accounts. We're we're faced with the same problem. Would we call a guy with a significant body of content who is remembered not wrongly for a racist meltdown. Nafi noticed it was at I on. Twitter was legendary radio host Don Imus and then it was controversial radio host and finally the consensus. We came to his shock shock. Jock Don Imus dead at seventy nine. 'cause shock Jock is kind of Botha complement and a you know a reminder that there was bad stuff in there if you've never heard word Imus in the morning here's a sample from nineteen ninety-four irritates me about stern. Tell me about David Letterman. To and not. Nobody's he's been a bigger supporter. Letterman for sensitive came to New York and he doesn't need my support But I mean but he looks at punk puts at punk on his television program. Unless you talk about ripping me off about me rip off any not so preposterous. It's just a mile only point. Is that that that even if he is a maggot he's still on. You know what he's still ought to be able to say whatever he wants to say an FCC on a get out of infinity broadcasting's Business in the IMBENI essential point I made was that it that had it at vicinity. At least we're abiding by the law and FCC isn't so the biggest story recently on Don Imus of course was his comments two thousand seven on the rutgers women's basketball team his racist comments on the Rutgers Women's basketball team room which is interesting because I miss lost his? MSNBC show in the wake of there was also he lost his CBS. Radio show when had to SORTA come back in and didn't slightly different form but I'm always amazed at how guys like him and you can put Howard Stern in the same general category kind of existed pre canceled culture. Like they they they said something cancelable basically every a day or every other day And they existed in this weird zone where old media would get really flabbergasted tested an angry think to Howard playing you know the reels of all the people saying this shock jock is saying terrible things but then they would just kind of keep going Like they were there was just a spot carved out result. Well you know there was a meltdown. Okay keep going. That's that's really weird to me to think back to that now. Yeah I need it to say something and I mean I guess. There's probably some things a lot a lot of what they said or done. I mistake probably is probably more offensive would seem more offensive now than it was the time in the trump A lot of stuff that he said it would seem less offensive But it is hard to imagine that note that anything saying that he said you know world in which anything said wasn't you know parched out and broken down by soundbite and published all over social media It was it was a different world. And you know he was able to. I mean you. Although he was literally cancelled he sort of avoided. The fate like you said have canceled culture right and so the end Couple of notes about his show one is at least in later years. It seemed kind of weird where the he was not necessarily the biggest character on his own. Show you'd listen like is he. Is he talking it or is it just Charles mccord Bernard mcgurk is. He's I miss it is I'm here The kind of also the purposefully old fashion -ness of the show. Yeah the Imus in the morning program I believe is what he called it. Yeah those sort of Cowboy Roy outfits which looked like they were from a completely different era. I saw some people saying you know I must have these Insulting and I and disgusting remarks on the show but in private he was big on charity. I'm sorry the charity was on the show there'd be whole shows devoted to fundraising for kids with cancer. What's that was that was that was not the private side of that was the public side of Imus as well? He also. Interestingly had this big renaissance and I remember becoming aware of it in one thousand nine because there was this Newsweek cover that I looked up. The headline was the importance of being imus and he went from this guy who was pretty fully in the shock jock realm to a combination of proto morning. Joe And he was is literally in the morning show time slot on MSNBC combination of morning. Show and the Oprah Reese Witherspoon Book Club. Remember that that I mean he was like he was like the guy who was telling you what to read And he was the guy on there saying you know you should read this A Scott Berg biography of Charles Lindbergh..

New video shows fellow SEALs disparage Edward Gallagher
"Also following new developments in the controversy over a former navy seal platoon leader named Eddie Gallagher. His case drew the attention. The president trump is. He was tried into quitted murdering an Isis fighter. Now videos obtained by The New York Times shed light on his fellow seals accusations against him C. N. N. and Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr reports. And we certainly need to warn. You hear that this report contains some disturbing images members of seal Tim. Seven Alpha platoon broke their own code of silence in two thousand eighteen with their opinions about retired special operations. Chief Eddie Eddie Gallagher and some making accusations that the elite seal committed murder and potential war crimes the crazier and crazier the portions of recorded navy. Seal interviews published by The New York Times where team members tell investigators their views on the platoon leader. Go Sausage Gallagher was acquitted of premeditated murder when a key prosecution witness change this story and testified under immunity unity that he caused the prisoner Steph. Not Gallagher him over Scott described the killing as an act of mercy because he was concerned the boy a prisoner of Iraqi forces would be tortured by them. Gallagher was convicted on a charge of taking a photo with a dead Isis Lisa fighter and was tend to moated in rank a decision president trump reversed allowing the seal to retire with honor even after our Pentagon leaders urged the president not to interfere. Speaking was Attorney Gallagher told CNN my first reaction to seeing the videos was surprise and disgust that they would make up blatant lies about me but I quickly realized that they were scared that the truth would come out of how cowardly they they acted on deployment. His defense attorney says the tapes were quote a roadmap to acquittal because they showed there were conflicting stories about allegations. It's have gallagher killing civilians and other misconduct. Really you're only seeing one very small slice of the story in a way. That's not reflective liked what the ultimate result was president trump's determination to reverse the military's punishment of gallagher against the advice of top Pentagon officials officials was so controversial. Maybe Secretary Richard Spencer was ousted.

Raping burning and pillaging but something. It's all led to festering bad feelings. So it's this kind of divisiveness that president's actions have been introduced adduced into the seal community. I think that are the most damaging and we'll have long term effects. Gallagher met with trump over the holidays mar-a-lago and it's possible he will campaign pain for trump.
