from Western Journalism:
When Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called accused deserter Bowe Bergdahl “a dirty, rotten traitor,” a New Hampshire audience cheered its approval. The cheers redoubled when Trump did a brief pantomime of firing a rifle, as in a firing squad, while saying, “You know, in the old days… bing, bong. When we were strong.”
Trump’s actions brought a volley of protests from the White House and Eugene Fidell, Bergdahl’s defense attorney.
A tweet attributed to a White House official read: “Trump comment on Bowe Bergdahl ‘Crossed the Line.’”
“This is the lowest kind of demagoguery,” Fidell said Thursday. “Mr. Trump’s comments are contemptible and un-American. They are a call for mob justice.”
Trump made the remarks during a town hall meeting Wednesday in New Hampshire.
“We get a traitor named Bergdahl, a dirty, rotten traitor, who, by the way, when he deserted, six young, beautiful people were killed trying to find him,” Trump is heard saying in a video posted by the Wall Street Journal.
