‘I’m Sorry This Man Is Your President’: Marine Chokes Up As He Apologizes To Troops For Trump

Published

Appearing for an interview on MSNBC on Saturday, Iraq war veteran and current U.S. Congressman Ruben Gallego choked up while apologizing to members of the U.S. military for President Donald Trump’s inaction in the face of Russian aggression.

Asked by host Lindsey Reiser about the New York Times’ bombshell report story that Russia was offering bounties for the killing of U.S. troops — with President Trump doing nothing in response, Gallego said “it’s heartbreaking” to see our military being abandoned by our own government.

“You’re a veteran, what’s your reaction to this?” Reiser asked the Marine veteran.

“It’s heartbreaking,” Gallego replied. “I remember being a young guy in Iraq, sometimes feeling abandoned by my government. And right now, there’s a young man or woman in Afghanistan that’s reading this and what are they feeling?” he wondered.

“Their own president is hanging them out to dry for some reason, some obsession for Putin.”

He added: “I want to apologize to all of our members of the military, I’m so sorry this man is your president,” Gallego said. “This is not how it should be.”

If You Thought Kamala Harris Was Tough On Brett Kavanaugh, Just Wait Until She Debates Mike Pence

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday selected Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate. Following the news of Biden’s selection, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace called into her network while on vacation to point out that Harris will mop the floor with Vice President Mike Pence during debates.

“The other piece of reporting I’ve picked up in the past week was from the Trump team, that from their viewpoint, because Donald Trump has no capacity to understand that this is the selection of a person to run the government with the president, he only saw this in terms of casting for the night of primetime coverage that is the vice presidential debate, and this was the pick that scared them the most,” Wallace told MSNBC’s Brian Williams.

“They thought she would more than go toe-to-toe with [Mike] Pence, they thought she could chew him up and spit him out and pointed to her cross-examination of one Bill Barr,” she explained.

“I don’t know that there’s a better debater or questioner on the political field right now,” Wallace said. Her skill-set is unmatched in terms much being able to articulate an argument, to patiently wait to make her point and look at the argument that the democratic ticket has to make.”
