CNN: Miracle on the Hudson pilot 'Sully' Sullenberger blasts Trump over a report he disparaged fallen US service members
The pilot vaunted for his grace under pressure as he landed an airliner in the Hudson River called President Donald Trump "completely unfit" for office and urged people to "vote him out" in response to a report in The Atlantic magazine that the President disparaged US service members killed in battle and chose to skip a ceremony honoring veterans.
...Sullenberger has always "tried to be a voice of reason and to speak in a measured way," but he felt that he had to call out the President's behavior, he wrote. Trump has "completely failed" to uphold his oath of office and "he has admitted that he cannot comprehend the concept of service above self," the pilot wrote.
"He cannot understand selflessness because he is selfish. He cannot conceive of courage because he is a coward. He cannot feel duty because he is disloyal," Sullenberger wrote.
He concluded his post by arguing that "we owe it not only to those who have served and sacrificed for our nation, but to ourselves and to succeeding generations to vote him out." He posted similar comments to Twitter.
