You should really fact check things before accepting them as true because the OP is a lie.

I almost forgot to say:

FAKE NEWS ALERT!!!!!


Please don't be disrespectful, I have friends and family buried at Arlington, and my cousin was awarded the CMH for giving his life to save his men in Vietnam.


The OP is the one being disrespectful, peddling fake news and creating division.

It is telling that people (including me) didn't even consider it to be to far off.

Obama was on vacation in 2010, based on the article. It's a shame this just wasn't' a nice post about Trump doing the right thing. The petty bickering will end us all if somebody doesn't step up and rise above it.

It's not his job to go to memorial day ceremonies anymore.

What do you think Trump was doing this day last year?


Lol really? If you read the post he said "his first memorial day in OFFICE". What that means is when Obama was President he went on vacation for his first memorial day...geez

One thing to think about, yes we know Obama is no longer in office, he is gone et cetera et cetera.... but we need to compare how Obama was treated to Trump. When you do that you really start to see just how screwed up the media is in Obama got a 8 year pass to do anything he wants and Trump is watched by the minute that in the end is either over blown, made up, or has zero significance to anything at all....THE PRESIDENT ATE TWO SCOOPS, IMPEACH mentality.

Could you post any examples (non-partisan) of him disrespecting the military and police?

Read the rest of the thread, all you're doing is proving you'll accept fake news as fact as long as it confirms your biases.

President Obama decided to go ON VACATION, his first Memorial Day in office.


That's an outright lie.


WASHINGTON — Barack Obama marked his first Memorial Day as president on Monday, saluting the men and women of America's fighting forces, both living and dead, as "the best of America."

The president spoke after participating in a solemn holiday tradition, laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery, the burial ground for American veterans dating to the Revolutionary War.

Nice try.


But did he "INTEND" to be there is the question.



Act III, Scene II

Somewhat true.


On Memorial Day 2010, President Obama was scheduled to honor America’s fallen heroes with a speech at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery near Chicago, while Vice-President Joe Biden took his place at Arlington; however, a thunderstorm in Illinois interrupted the former ceremony, and President Obama returned to Washington to deliver his speech at Andrews Air Force Base. With the exception of that one year, President Obama has participated in wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery every Memorial Day (2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016) during his administration.

As others have mentioned, other presidents have also missed ceremonies, so this thread is a mudslinging attempt to create division, and using an outright lie to do so.

A shame indeed.

I've pretty much gotten used to it at this point. It's entertaining to see all the partisan hacks running around like chickens with their heads cut off though, feeding into what they claim to hate.

So Obama skipped ceremonies on his first Memorial Day in office...really


May 25, 2009 Memorial Day Observance President Obama participated in a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and then spoke during a Memorial Day observance program at Arlington National Cemetery. In his remarks he praised the sacrifice of military personnel who had given their lives in several wars and recognized the sacrifice of the families gathered to remember more recent victims of conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The link in the OP cites May 2010.

Who is full of it? MSM, etc.
