I saw a lot of stuff during my 20 years in the Navy, some never meant for public consumption and some best left unsaid. But, I can unequivocally say that I have never even heard of nor could I ever imagine something like this happening in the Navy I served in.
A civilian political appointee and the acting secretary of the navy calling a senior United States Navy Captain, Commanding Officer of a $4.5B warship which is probably the most powerful weapon in the world, Commanding Officer of a crew with squadrons embarked which totals over 5,000 sailors, "stupid" and "naive" ranks right up there with Trump making disparaging remarks about John McCain as a POW.
Pretty sure that if I were the Command Master Chief, I would have told this guy after making those comments to get the fug off my ship.
Fug them all. Fug this entire administration.
