Trump Disrespects Flag During Retreat

October 12, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Yes, it was one of those You Just Can’t Make This Up moments.  Here’s Cheeto Jesus, in all of his self-aggrandized glory, spouting bullshit to Sean Hannity about how NFL football players are “disrespecting the flag and the troops” by not standing for the national anthem.  AND, he’s using an Air National Guard hangar in Pennsylvania packed with super patriot supporters as his super patriot backdrop.  But that’s not the funny part.

Here’s the funny part – At the very moment Trump is railing at Hannity, Retreat begins playing on the base loudspeakers.  Retreat is played at military bases when the flag is being lowered.  Military personnel are supposed to stand at attention, and if outdoors, salute.  Civilians are to stand silently with their hands over their hearts.  What does Trump do?  He keeps laughing and talking, even remarking, “What a nice sound that is, are they playing that for you or for me?”  Then he says, “They’re playing that in honor of his ratings,” gesturing towards Hannity. “He’s beating everybody.”  There’s a video of the disaster here.

As I said, you just can’t make this up.  Here’s the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES at a military base hurling invective at players for “disrespecting the flag” at the VERY MOMENT he’s actually disrespecting the flag while he laughs and jokes.

What an ass.
