Donald Trump Rightfully Calls Chelsea Manning a 'TRAITOR,' Washington Post Takes Offense
[TWEET BY DONALD TRUMP]
With Trump, there's this little game I like to play called "Good Trump, Bad Trump." One day he appears to be completely rational and highly principled, but the next day he behaves like a spoiled brat who can't accept the fact that fewer people attended his inauguration than Obama's. Good Trump, Bad Trump. It differs from day to day, and often even from hour to hour.
Obviously, this tweet about Chelsea Manning proves that Good Trump is currently in charge of the man. Chelsea Manning is a terrible traitor whose sentence should never have been commuted. In more rational times, Manning would've been executed, which is exactly what he deserves for his betrayal of his own country.
As always, the Washington Post takes offense at Trump's perfectly reasonable tweet. After all, the leftwing media have never seen a traitor they didn't like.
'The use of the word traitor is often tossed around by political leaders and others to describe alleged acts that threaten national security. But it is rare for a president to brand someone as a traitor, and raised questions on whether Trump could try to bring further action against Manning, who is scheduled to be released in May.'
Welcome to the alternative reality created by the leftwing media, in which calling a traitor a traitor is not done.
Well, unfortunately for the ladies and gentlemen of the mainstream media, Trump won the election. Americans wanted a president who spoke truth to power, and they got what they asked for.

Choke on it, POST. You have earned it.
His sentence was COMMUTED; he was not pardoned, and he is STILL a traitor. PRESIDENT [I love saying that] is right.
The ‘science’ is settled.
chelsea manning, chelsea handler or chelsea clintoon. Chelsea morning?
#BezosWaPoop: In the 141st year of Left Wing butthurt.
..As always, the Washington Post takes offense at Trump’s...
These idiots and most other fringe lunatic liberals do not realize their great and continuing contributions to the election win of President Donald John Trump.
Donald Trump Wrongfully Calls Bradley Manning "Chelsea"
But I say my president gets a free pass on that. :)
For crying out loud, it was the court that branded Manning a traitor.
I don't think characterizing him as a "spoiled brat" is fair, or accurate.
It's my recollection that he objected to the publication of misleading photographs of the crowd in order to make the number of attendees look much smaller than it actually was.
The SOB has dual US-UK citizenship. When UK PM Theresa May leaves this weekend, the Feds should zip tie & shrink wrap the perv traitor and toss him in the baggage compartment of her aircraft...after the Trump admin strips his US citizenship.
Coda: The USA must get rid of dual citizenship. We’re one of a handful of countries that permit this. Either you’re an American or you’re something else, not both.
Even a pardoned traitor would still be a traitor.Men infinitely better than Manning died trying to find and rescue him.That’s what really pisses me off about him.
They’re also adding to his likely re-election as well. They’ve become totally unhinged while the president is working his behind off for the American people.
his may release is timed to allow his sex change operation at our expense. trump should his sorry ass right now at the height of his unpopularity. maybe some vigilantistics will take care of the problem.
Are you confusing the other traitor Bergdahl with Manning, not to be confused still more by the arch traitor Eddy Snowjob?
Yes, you are correct. NEITHER pardons the crime; only the sentence. However, the status of a pardon does offer some better sense of legality in terms of restoration of ‘benefits’ than does a commutation. Of course, I’m just an old fart and I could very well be wrong, but this is what I believe.
If he’s not a traitor then the Rosenbergs ought to be posthumously awarded Presidental Medals of Freedom.
