^^Uh, where's he wrong? Why is a guy who's never served in any capacity whatsoever, and is a former investment banker, acting Sec of the Navy? Oh wait, he gave Trump's campaign money. That's seems rather swampy, don't you think? Yet, you're here sucking Orange man's cock. I'd rather have TDS than 'I love sucking Orange man cock' syndrome.
