President Trump retrieves Marine’s hat

While a President’s policies matter, symbols and gestures are also important and, oftentimes, convey more about the person.

In contrast to his predecessor, President Trump lit up the White House in red-white-blue on July 4th. Nor did President Trump slavishly wear the G-20 lapel pin but, as a true American patriot, wore his American flag pin at the recent G-20 Summit in Germany.

Here’s another difference between President Trump and Obama.

According to Marine Corps regulation MCO P1020.34F of the Marine Corps Uniform Regulations chapter 3, a male Marine is not allowed to carry an umbrella while in uniform.

But at a May 2013 press conference with visiting Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Obama forced a Marine to shield him from the light drizzle with an umbrella, thereby violating U.S. Marine Corps regulation.

Contrast how Obama treated Marines to President Trump.

On July 8, 2017, while boarding Marine One at a very windy Joint Base Andrews, President Trump noticed the wind had blown away the hat of a standing-at-attention Marine. So the Commander In Chief bent down to pick it up and placed the hat back on the head of the Marine.

Did you also notice President Trump giving the Marine a pat on the arm (0:18 mark)?

But this is how lying liberal bastards portray the hat incident (h/t FOTM‘s truckjunkie):

By the way, the other Marine saluted President Trump. Why wasn’t the hatless Marine saluting his Commander in Chief?

  2. Trump proves, once again, that he does have class, despite what his detractors have said about him. As for the Marine whose hat he retrieved, maybe there is a regulation that a Marine may not salute anyone without his hat? IDK.

  3. I bet he treats those who would stop a bullet for his life with respect, not with the contempt shown them by a former candidate and Secretary of State.

  5. Quick note, folks. The Marine doesn’t have his hat on, and by regulations, can’t salute without it outdoors.

    • Josh . . . Well put . . . If ever a man was in need of all our prayers, it is Our President! He has an onerous job, but he is bringing all his talent and being to bare in trying to MAGA. God Bless President Donald J Trump.

  10. Reblogged this on necltr and commented:

    This is clear proof that President Trump supports our troops. (And he is NOT a racist!) Would HRC have done the same? Or BHO, especially if the man were white?

  11. Egomamiac Mustafa Obama would never bend over to pick a marine’s hat, much less a black marine.

  12. I’m glad Trump picked up the hat- but I’ve got to say– my patience runs extremely thin when it comes to the computerized vocals on these videos.

  13. To be honest, it says a lot when a simple decent act is recognized as unusual. Anyone should, in a situation like this, do the same thing. I don’t go all ga ga over the military (having been in it and worked around it for years), but I’d pick up a clown’s nose if he dropped it.

    I mean comparing Obongo to Trump? Obongo’s a POS. If I were the Gyrene that was pretending to be an umbrella stand he would have had to have that brolly surgically removed.
