Fox News Judge Andrew Napolitano wrote an op-ed for the network’s website on Thursday where he claimed that The Atlantic report that said Donald Trump smeared fallen U.S. soldiers was true.
According to Napolitano, he and Trump have been friends since 1987 and wouldn’t be surprised if the president did attack fallen soldiers.
“To be Trump’s friend does not immunize one from Trump’s wrath,” Napolitano writes. “On the contrary, he expects total loyalty, particularly from those in the media, and he will not hesitate to attack his friends publicly should he hear anything from them that displeases him.”
“I say this because — for better or worse — Donald Trump is unfiltered,” writes Napolitano. “He often says what first comes to his mind without thinking of the likely consequences — including the hurt — his words could produce. And he believes he can repair any hurt with more words.”
