An MSNBC analyst said military veterans who support President Trump are “not honorable.”

MSNBC analyst Malcolm Nance, a 20-year Navy veteran, was asked if military veterans who support Trump are outraged over people who talk about Sen. John McCain the way that White House communications staffer Kelly Sadler did last week when she mocked McCain’s brain cancer during a closed-door meeting with other staffers.

“It doesn’t matter, he’s dying anyway,” Sadler had said, remarking on McCain’s opposition to Trump’s CIA Director nominee Gina Haspel.

“These military people love him [Trump],” Nancy said. “And I’m going to just come right out and say it — not honorable military veterans, because an honorable military veteran, if they had heard this story, would have said, ‘You know what, there’s a line. That line has now been crossed.’ But they have this cultish love of him where the love of Donald Trump exceeds the constitution and exceeds the love of the honor of everyone who has sacrificed and lost in this nation,” he said.

Nance said that there is no outrage from military veterans about the remarks on McCain.

“The difference between what’s going on with Trump’s military base and the rest of the military is very weird,” Nance said. “We have people who are behaving in sort of flight line field conditions where they can make all of the insulting jokes that they want and it’s going to be accepted.”
