‘Sully’ Sullenberger, hero pilot, shreds Trump, GOP: ‘This is not the America I know’ – Washington Times
Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the former airline pilot who landed the famous “Miracle on the Hudson,” penned an op-ed Monday attacking President Trump and the “cowardly” Republicans who enable him.
Mr. Sullenberger, writing for The Washington Post, boasted about his own courage and leadership in bringing all 155 passengers and crew to safety in an emergency water landing on the Hudson River in 2009. He compared that to where the country is today, purportedly being led by “fear, anger and hatred.”
“To navigate complex challenges, all leaders must take responsibility and have a moral compass grounded in competence, integrity and concern for the greater good,” the 67-year-old wrote.
