a tweet is not an order

no one expects trump to issue 5 paragraph orders, but as commander in chief he should use the chain of command and issue orders by normal channels.

1. Who determines what channels the president can or can not use?

A tweet is apparently LEGALLY considered official enough to forbid President Trump, or AOC for that matter, from blocking others.

Had you thought about that at all?

3. The military has to learn that Trump is the CinC

what he says goes and if this chump doesn't like it he can go.

5. NBC's language makes this suspect. He is not accused of murder, he was acquitted of the charge.

7. Verbal orders are still Orders

“A commander must train his subordinate commanders, and his own staff, to work and act on
verbal orders. Those who cannot be trusted to act on clear and concise verbal orders, but want
everything in writing, are useless.”
– Viscount Montgomery of Alamein, Memoirs, 1958

the Navy Secretary should resign or be fired for cause

Remember how Democrats howled in glee when Truman fired MacArthur for publicly disagreeing with the Commander in Chief?

8. the montgomery quote is a good one

but I'm sure that the field marshall used his chain of command, and directed his orders by established channels.

are the navy's commanders expected to "follow" on twitter and to take all of the presidents jokes, distractions, and "bright shiny objects" seriously?
