This is fucking crazy.

President Trump tweeted Friday that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s sentence– a dishonorable discharge, but no prison time for leaving his post in June 2009 — was a “complete and total disgrace.”
More than eight years after Bergdahl walked off his base in Afghanistan — and unwittingly into the clutches of the Taliban — Bergdahl walked out of a North Carolina courtroom a free man Friday. Bergdahl, who pleaded guilty to endangering his comrades, was fined, reduced in rank to E1 and dishonorably discharged — but he received no prison time.
Trump, aboard Air Force One en route to meetings in Asia, tweeted his disapproval of the sentence.
As part of the sentence, Bergdahl will forfeit his pay of $1000 per month for ten months.
Bergdahl was shaking and appeared emotional as the verdict was quickly read.
Bergdahl’s defense lawyer has told reporters after sentencing that his client “has looked forward to today for a long time.”
Eugene Fidell added: “Sgt. Bergdahl is grateful to everyone who searched for him in 2009, especially those who heroically sustained injuries.”
Fuck you Fidell, and fuck Bergdahl. “unwittingly”, my ass.
He left his gear in a nice neat little pile along with a note that explained he was running away. He willfully collaborated with the enemy and declared himself ‘mujahid’ and allegiance to Islamic jihad. The attacks his unit endured got more methodical and precise after Bergdahl’s desertion.
During his stay with the Taliban, he converted to Islam and declared himself a “mujahid.”
It took some time before charges were even brought against the little shitbag, since Obama treated him like a pet to advance his political agenda.
Six Soldiers were killed looking for his worthless ass. Barky traded five of the worst muzzie cutthroats at GITMO for this piece of shit.
They should have left him with the Taliban. They should have considered him an enemy combatant and killed him on the battlefield.
Barring that, he should be taken out and shot. And take Obama with him.
The presiding judge Col. Jeffery Nance, should be tossed off the bench. He trivialized Bergdahl’s cowardice and treason by giving him a fucking slap on the wrist.
