. . . . While Tuberville’s critics have baselessly claimed his protest is harming “military readiness,” a deep dive into the background of nominees such as Navy Rear Adm. (lower half) Derek Trinque shows just how valid the senator’s protest is.
In a thread posted on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Wednesday, the American Accountability Foundation revealed how Trinque — whose promotion was announced by the Defense Department in February — has routinely promoted radical, left-wing views and denigrated those who hold non-leftist opinions, particularly as it relates to Covid.
In his tweet, Trinque wrote: “Sigh. We are never going to kick this thing.” Despite the rear admiral’s alarmism, children are the least at-risk demographic when it comes to Covid.
But Trinque’s obsession with Covid mandates didn’t stop there. In fact, the rear admiral was a big supporter of Biden’s military Covid vaccine mandate.
“I can’t promise you that if you get the shot, you don’t have to wear a mask. I can’t promise you that you’ll be able to go to liberty ports,” Trinque said. “What I can tell you is that when you get immunized, you protect yourself, you protect those around you [and] you reduce the possibility that your unit will be rendered combat-ineffective by the pandemic.”
