Air Force Says Nothing Improper About Airmen Displaying MAGA Hats


“There is no rule against Airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president,” USAFE said in a statement.

CNN complains he doesn’t visit those poor troops and when he does, they accuse the troops of violating regulations. I get a headache trying to figure it all out.

Any chance that CNN has lost all objectivity? Leave it to them to find the negative in what should be nothing but a positive visit with the troops at Christmas time. A new low for even for CNN!

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. An Air Force captain carrying a Trump banner also was scrutinized.

“There are myriad reasons for both a Department of Defense and an Army Regulation against military personnel participating in or showing allegiance to ANY political party while in uniform,” wrote retired Army Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling on Twitter Thursday. “Good commanders enforce; good NCOs jerk a knot in the (expletive) of those who violate.”  More

Disgusting! They just make stuff up and present it as absolute truth. Our troops were just happy to see their President signing something that they wanted… No big deal.

I just love it when the left blows a gasket watching the military go crazy over our President. It brightens my entire day.
