Malcolm Nance's Political Inclination; Is Strongly Opinionated
Malcolm is one of the strongly opinionated political analysts of the United States. From his years in Navy, from his experience as terrorism and intelligence expert, Malcolm has developed a set of beliefs that he refuses to go against. But since the said beliefs are mostly based on truths, his credibility remains intact.
Moreover, Malcolm also does not have any qualms about ridiculing people if he deems them unfit for what they are. There have been times when Malcolm has downright dismissed President Trump as 'coward', 'disgrace' etc. His best selling book, in fact, was a scathing review of 2016 elections and questioned the very credibility of the election and its results, which made Donald Trump president of America.
In a more recent example, on the issue of the murder of Saudi Arabian journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, in the hands of Saudi Arabian Agents, President's National Security Advisor said that he had not listened to the audio-tape of the murder. Malcolm, in turn, deemed the Advisor a coward because he was unwilling to face the brutal truth.
