ABC’s Martha Raddatz Fights Back Tears While Discussing Implications of Trump Presidency

MEDIAITE

ABC News’ Martha Raddatz began to choke up and fought back tears during the network’s 2016 Election Night coverage when discussing the ramifications a President Donald Trump might have on the military.

Raddatz, one of the 2016 debate moderators, sounded shaky from the get-go. “Donald Trump, I questioned what he would do about Syria and his understanding of military policy and civilian/military divide, I don’t know that he really has a plan for what he’s going to do there,” she said.

 

“I was also looking back at an interview [Democratic vice presidential candidate] Tim Kaine gave,” she continued. “Tim Kaine has a son in the Marine Corps. He was asked by CBS’s John Dickerson, ‘If Donald Trump is democratically elected,and your son is serving as a Marine, you wouldn’t trust his life under that commander-in-chief?’ And Kaine said, ‘I wouldn’t.’”

“That’s a pretty extreme thing to say; if you have a son in the Marine Corps, and that you don’t trust the commander-in-chief” Raddatz said, her voice breaking. “The people in the military defend the Constitution. That’s what they do.”

  1. ,and your son is serving as a Marine, you wouldn’t trust his life under that commander-in-chief?’ And Kaine said, ‘I wouldn’t.’”

    I don’t get it. The present commander in chief (as for every president) is the one that sends our sons and daughters to war and in harm’s way to defend our country. Why would he not trust Trump ? So I suppose Kaine condemns every president wherein a soldier was killed during his term ? After Benghazi, Kaine thinks Hillary more “trustworthy” ?
