Air Force Shoots Down Fake News Media Attack on Pro-Trump Troops
Like the Islamic terrorists that they are allied with, the media never gives up. The enemy of the people keeps looking for new angles of attack. First, the media tried to smear President Trump for not visiting the troops. When that didn’t pay off, it went after the troops for bringing Make America Great Again caps to the party. It suggested that they had broken the rules and should be punished.
Now the Air Force shot down that fake news attack.
U.S. Air Forces Europe said troops holding “Make America Great Again” hats during President Donald Trump’s visit Thursday to Ramstein Air Base were not in violation of military rules that prohibit taking part in partisan activities while in uniform.
“There is no rule against Airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president,” USAFE said in a statement.
More than 200 airmen greeted Trump on Thursday at a Ramstein Air Base aircraft hangar, where the president and first lady Melania Trump were greeted with cheers.
Trump posed for photos, shook hands and signed autographs with airmen during a scene that resembled photo-op visits of former commanders-in-chief in years past. But the public display by some uniformed troops, who held red “Make America Great Again” hats synonymous with Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, prompted widespread criticism on social media.
Pam Keith, a former Navy judge advocate general and recent Democratic candidate for Congress in Florida, also opined. “I can tell you that engaging in partisan political activity such as flying a Trump flag or wearing a MAGA hat, while in uniform is a violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and its implementing regs,” Keith said on Twitter.
Sorry Pam. Better luck next time.
