Captain Sully Is 'Disgusted' By Trump, Urges People to 'Vote Him Out'

Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger III has called out Donald Trump in a series of tweets without naming him.

The famed pilot, who became a household name after his Miracle on the Hudson emergency landing in 2009, took to social media and urged people to get out and vote for the good of the country’s future.

Sully expressed his disappointment in the leader of the country, following Trump’s controversial comments about veterans.

“This situation calls for a much more direct approach. It is time to call out egregious behavior for what it is,” he wrote. “For the first time in American history, a president has repeatedly shown utter and vulgar contempt and disrespect for those who have served and died serving out country.”

He continued, “While I am not surprised, I am disgusted by the current occupant of the Oval Office. He has repeatedly and consistently shown himself to be completely unfit for and to have no respect for the office he holds.”

“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,” Sully said.

Sully went on and put an emphasis on getting out to the polls and using your right to vote.

“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.”
