The man is whuppin' azz and takin' names.  Who needs a Hollywood mobster paean when we can witness Il Duce Americano settling scores in plain sight.  Who will lead the resistance?

Why would any President (or any CEO) keep people on staff who are clearly working against him?  He has every right to hire and fire the staff who he deems will serve him best.  Don't forget, his most famous catch phrase is "You're fired!"

@ mikey2573

The current president is a man of the lowest character and someone who lacks any probity whatsoever.  His rights and welfare are simply not my concern as he's clearly demonstrated that he's only in it for himself.  Were it not for the natural-born U.S. citizen criterion, I'd encourage the DNC to vet LTC Vindman (or former Deputy AG Sally Yates) for possible pairing with the party nominee as running mate.  Hopefully, in the near future Trump will gain firsthand knowledge of the terms "subpoena" and "under penalty of perjury".

Of course you have a right to your opinion.  But I was simply stating the fact that the POTUS's staff serve at the pleasure of the President, and he can hire and fire at will.

Oh I got it.  But, I don't have a modicum of respect for a so-called supreme commander who pardons a war criminal yet fires a Purple Heart recipient who simply told the truth under oath before a co-equal branch of government.  I draw the line when it comes to a military officer who took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, among other affirmations.  Trump is still trashing LTC Vindman after kicking him (and his brother) out.  It wasn't enough for Trump to simply relieve him of his WH NSC duties.  We deserve a better president.

You seem to be having serious difficulty grasping the difference between "working against him" and "testifying honestly under oath after being subpoenaed by Congress". In order to "serve him best", Colonel Vindman would have had to lie under oath about what he heard. Is that what you think he should have done to best serve Trump?

Trump clearly wishes to not just siilence, but crush anyone who would dare speak out against him even when they are required to do so by the oath they took to protect the Constitution.. These are truly the actions of someone who wishes to become supreme dictator. I'm pretty sure the Founding Fathers set up the structure of government we have with its checks and balances to make sure this couldn't happen.

And as far as your mentioning CEO's, I'm sure you are aware that executives as officers of a company, have gone to prison for not reporting the illegal actions of a CEO and that individuals have won millions of dollars from companies after they were fired for reporting what they believed to be illegal activities. If Vindman was in the private sector, he would be on his way to being a very rich man but that schmuck was dumb enough to believe he had an obligation to serve and protect his adopted country by joining the military. (Sarcasm font on for the last sentence)

This is true. What's also true is he is a criminal who is firing them as retribution for them ratting on him. And given he has now been checked TWICE on his criminal activity with NO pressure from Republicans for repercussions he will continue to be the disgusting person that he is.
