In an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Monday, Nicholas Irving, author of “The Reaper: Autobiography of One of the Deadliest Special Ops Snipers,” reacted to liberal filmmaker and activist Michael Moore, who put out in a tweet over the weekend declaring military snipers “cowards.”
My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren't heroes. And invaders r worse

According to Irving, Moore wasn’t qualified to make such statements about snipers.
“I don’t think he deserves the breath that I’m about to give, but I’ll just say, Michael Moore, he wasn’t there in Afghanistan and the last time I checked he’s never shot anybody through the scope or with a scoped rifle so I don’t really — I don’t think he deserves the breath that comes out of me right now for that statement,” Irving said.
“I don’t really care what he gives me, a thank you or not, a lot of good guys and my friends died for his right to freedom of speech,” he added. “I’m not worried about what he has to say.”
