The media slammed Trump for ‘not’ visiting the troops on Christmas. (He did.) Now they’re upset by how happy those troops were to see him.
Trump, in fact, DID visit the troops for Christmas. He did it in Iraq.
The President got a boisterous reception.
Was her husband right? Between the video, and this photo, I would think it’s a clear ‘yes’.

Waiting for all those apology tweets from folks who whined about POTUS not visiting troops during Christmas. Commencing breath hold…now

Sorry, to burst your bubble, parody Sean, but you’ve just taken your final breath. Because they are doubling down.
First, outlets like NBC tried to shame the President for ‘failing’ to visit the troops… WHILE he was visiting them.
Now that he’s visited them they’ve found something else to pile on about. The MAGA hats.
President Donald Trump made his first visit to a war zone on Wednesday, receiving an enthusiastic reception from many US troops there — some of whom may have run afoul of military rules.
Video footage and the written report of Trump’s visit with service members in Iraq showed the President signing “Make America Great Again” hats and an embroidered patch that read “Trump 2020.”
But troops’ requests for the autographs could brush up against Department of Defense guidelines for political activities.
Those guidelines say that “active duty personnel may not engage in partisan political activities and all military personnel should avoid the inference that their political activities imply or appear to imply DoD sponsorship, approval, or endorsement of a political candidate, campaign, or cause.”
To the surprise of absolutely nobody, Acosta and Co. slanted the story into the most damning light possible.
Here’s what they conveniently ‘omitted’.
But here’s what CNN left out from the guidelines: “Active duty members may, however, express their personal opinions on political candidates and issues, make monetary contributions to a political campaign or organization, and attend political events as a spectator when not in uniform.”
You lowlifes know this, but for everyone else out there:
Asking your Commander-in-Chief to sign a MAGA hat is NOT a political campaign action and is not illegal. pic.twitter.com/o9iCCPzvp8

Why is CNN trying to play ‘gotcha’? Is it just their usual Trump hatred? Or could there be another reason?
Remember the racous goodby the miltary gave to Obama? No wait, the hall was mostly empty.
The Democrats have been running ex-military candidates to boost their foreign policy credibility. But to show how our Armed Forces respect their Commander-in-Chief does not serve the Media(D) Narrative. Not one little bit.
