President Trump took mountains of criticism for failing to visit our troops at Christmastime, but who could have guessed that he would face an even greater avalanche of criticism for actually going to Iraq and celebrating our combat-zone soldiers?
Well, anyone who has been paying attention to the media for the last two years could have guessed it, actually. This may have been the most obvious case of “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” in the Trump presidency, but it was far from the first. And President Trump, sensing that there is literally nothing he can do that won’t result in an earthquake of scorn from the Washington media, basically said as much in his defense on Twitter.
“If these brave young people ask me to sign their hat, I will sign,” he wrote on Thursday in response to media pundits who have accused him of politicizing the troops. “Can you imagine my saying NO?”
Exactly. The idiots on CNN wouldn’t have mentioned all of these rules and regulations about the apolitical military if he’d done that, would they have? Of course not. Instead, they would have reamed him up one side and down the other for being so ungrateful to his military supporters that he wouldn’t even take the time to sign their merchandise. The merchandise they paid for out of their own hard-earned checks! For shame, President Trump, for shame!
There really is no winning with these cretins.
As for those supposed regulations, it’s all hogwash made up by liberal creeps who are looking for any excuse to bash the president – even if it means bashing our brave soldiers right along with him.
“Turns out it was the troop’s own personal belongings that they had with them already!” Don Jr. wrote on the subject. “Wonder how many #imwithher hats there are in Iraq?”
No one rules Twitter like the president’s son (with the possible exception of James Woods).
As for official responses, the U.S.A.F. Europe released a statement assuring concerned leftists that no rules were broken.
“There is no rule against Airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president,” USAFE said. “Any time the commander in chief offers the opportunity to meet with Airmen, such as this official holiday visit by the President and First Lady, Airmen are welcome to participate. No policy violations have been brought to our attention at this time.”
But of course no one in the media really cares about policy violations in the first place. They’re already on to the next story – the next carcass they can pick over like the vultures that they are. How anyone is taking ANYTHING they say seriously anymore is beyond us.
