Following the news of Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion charges, the White House is catching flak from all sides.
Berghdal faces charges of desertion under the Uniform Code of Military Justice at a hearing on April 22 in San Antonio, Texas.
People on social media have been quick to weigh-in. Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza, for example, threw in a bit of snark:
