Disrespect Our Soldiers?

There is so much stuff out there but the one that irks me the most is the fake crap about how people are disrespecting out troops….and then he does not know protocol of those troops….

After he had repeatedly railed against professional athletes over perceived slights to the American flag and military, President Donald Trump joked on Wednesday about a bugle call that is part of the armed forces’ time-honored tradition of showing respect for the Stars and Stripes.

The bugle call occurred during Trump’s interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, conducted in an airplane hangar used by the Pennsylvania Air National Guard in Harrisburg and before the president’s address on tax revision.

“What a nice sound that is. Are they playing that for you or for me?” Trump said before turning to the audience. “They’re playing that in honor of his ratings,” he added, referring to the popularity of Hannity’s news program.

Trump went back to speaking about economic growth as several audience members behind him stood up. The bugle call was “Retreat,” which signifies the lowering of the American flag on a military installation. Although Trump attended a military high school, the commander in chief appeared unaware of the music’s meaning.

  1. The social hypocrisy is amazing, isn’t it? And all those guys kneeling are millionaires, which just makes the “image” all the more crazy.
    Those 20 GI’s a day and 40,000 homeless, again.. goes back to the mental health crisis in this country. No sense of priority.

  2. Well, he recently said he spoke with the president of the Virgin Islands too. Dumbass. He doesn’t realize that’s himself?!? What a buffoon It is. Embarrassing. 😏

  3. Get the athletes off their knees of give them guns and send them to Afghanistan or Iraq and let them learn first hand what The American National Anthem is all about.
