Image result for bergdahl memeA military judge will not dismiss charges against Bowe Bergdahl despite President Trump's harsh criticism of the Army sergeant during the campaign.

According to The Associated Press, Army Col. Jeffery Nance ruled on Friday that while Trump's comments were "disturbing and disappointing" they hadn't prevented the soldier from receiving a fair trial.

Bergdahl's lawyers have maintained that the case against their client should be dropped in light of Trump's public remarks. Trump repeatedly blasted Bergdahl during the presidential campaign, labeling him a "traitor."

"We're tired of Sgt. Bergdahl, who's a traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed," Trump said in October 2015.

“Thirty years ago, he would have been shot,” he added.

The prosecutors, however, argued that the comments are not relevant to the case since they were made before Trump became the commander in chief.

Bergdahl is charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy after walking off his post in Afghanistan in 2009.

Should be 2 TRAITORS SHOT !  

Yep!

this will be interesting to watch

I wished I could be on that Jury for this worthless Mus-slim scumbag! He is like the rest of his brothers-WORTHLESS & should face a firing squad ASAP! Some of his fellow solders died while searching for this deserter! Put him in Guantanamo & feed all those "camel humpers" to sharks! Take BO with him, too! Hopefully, sharks eat human dung! Sorry sharks!!!

Follow the letter of the LAW! And then EXECUTE!!!

         OTHERS WERE KILLED TRYING TO FIND HIM !  NO DISMISSAL !! 

No, let the men he served with decide. 

Give him to them for a 24 hour period, with total control as to what happens to him without impunity. 

No waste of time, no money spent on a free lawyer that we pay for, no housing him in a swanky prison, no money spent feeding, clothing or medical expenses for him forever. I can insure you, he would disappear, never to be heard from or seen again. End of story!!!

I hope the noose is waiting for this traitor as well as the retard obama!

He was known to have deserted his post to connect with the enemy. Why in the world was he promoted two enlisted ranks?

And shot he should be!!! He is a traitor and has caused the deaths needlessly of other soldiers.

Good or great he should stand trial.

When I was in the Army in the 60's I was given a special court martial because I missed an Adjutant General inspection even though I was in an auto accident the night before and was admitted to and was in the hospital for three days! I don't know what it is like today but when I was in the Army, if asked why you did something not consistent with military protocol, there was only one answer! NO EXCUSE SIR! For this infraction I was confined to post for 30 days and reduced one grade!

I also got a summary court martial for not getting a haircut, for this infraction I was given two weeks on KP and reduced one grade!

This bastard Bergdahl deserts his command and his fellow soldiers and he gets a promotion! If any President had a mental problem, it was Obama!

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
