Memorial Day for President Trump is important to him as a Commander-in-Chief who truly respects and appreciates heroes who serve our country and those who gave their lives. For now the second Memorial Day he’s had since he’s been in office, he’s impressed with his approach to this special day and the honor he’s given those who truly deserve it.
It’s a stark contrast to his predecessor who used it as a day off to golf and enjoy himself. Even though Trump gave and moving Memorial Day speech, he was immediately attacked by leftists, including a particularly hateful celebrity, for allegedly making the day about himself which couldn’t be further from the truth. As proof of this, if his incredible remarks weren’t enough, it’s what he did after his address when he slipped off alone
As customary, President Donald Trump gave a heartfelt speech after laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. In his remarks, he went as far as promising the American People that he would get to the bottom of and find out who the “Unknown Soldier” actually was. That’s a pretty hefty goal, but let us be honest with ourselves, if anyone can do it, President Donald Trump can.
Trump didn’t just go through the steps of the normal ceremonies that are required of an American President on Memorial Day this year as well as last year. After giving his first Memorial Day address at Arlington Cemetary last year, he abruptly left and actually took the time to make his way to Section 60. This area is dedicated to the soldiers lost to the War on Terror after the 2001 World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks.
Fallen soldiers from both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars are buried in Section 60. Because President Trump is actually on our side in the War on Terror, he even took the time to speak with the Gold Star families while he was there. This was an incredible gesture and show of respect that all of his detractors this year who are critical of him need to be reminded of, especially in contrast to what Barack Obama did.
When he arrived at Section 60 he met with Gold Star families and consoled them. One of the Mothers told him that during one of the last conversations with her son he told her that he didn’t want people to forget that he lived. He replied by giving her a hug and telling her that her son was up in heaven looking at her and smiling. After that Vice President Mike Pence said a few words to her and also gave her a hug. What a distinct contrast with what we had before in former President Barack Hussein Obama as our president for 8 long and dark years.
STUNNING! President Obama decides to play golf on Memorial Day… 70th time during his presidency!
What can one possibly say, he’s incredibly insensitive or he just doesn’t give a damn about anyone but himself? The short answer is yes to both questions.
We are in the middle of war on three fronts, the Congress just passed the unconstitutional “Patriot Act” (talk about an oxymoron), the Midwest, Joplin in particular, is in chaos and President Obama goes golfing on Memorial Day.
BTW, this jerk went golfing during Memorial Day 2009 as well where “White House aides told reporters that the president paused at 3 p.m. to observe a moment of silent prayer.” Yup, a moment of prayer in the middle of his four-hour game! Jackass! I’m sure military families and service men and women across the globe were mighty impressed with Obama’s humility and devotion to this country!
Anyone besides me who wants to give him a smack on the side of the head?
Lest anyone forget, President Bush gave up golf while he was in the White House because we were at war and out of respect for all military families. After all the traveling BHO has engaged in during the past month, does anyone think it was too great a task to spend the entire day remembering the fallen of this country? What a lack of leadership. What a lack of class.
The following is from the British news outlet, The Telegraph:
Contrast this with President Obama’s decision to play golf yesterday, Memorial Day, for the 70th time during his 28-month long presidency. For tens of millions of Americans, Memorial Day is a time for remembrance of the huge sacrifices made by servicemen and women on the battlefield. The president did pay his respects in the morning, laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, but later in the day traveled to Fort Belvoir to play golf. The story has not been reported so far in a single US newspaper but was made public by veteran White House correspondent Keith Koffler on his blog.
Anyone placing bets whether MSNBC or CNN reports this?
Please America, I beg you. Never again elect an anti-American and anti-military charlatan like Barack Hussein Obama to the US presidency. Never mind the fact he had no qualifications nor ever held a real job in his entire life, just by name alone we should have known he didn’t care about any of us Americans.
