You know what would very interesting? A poll (with guaranteed accurate and honest results) of how many actual veterans are outraged over this vs how many of the “outraged” have never been within 50 miles of any military mission...or uniform...or even a military post/base. Not to mention how many are journalists with their perpetual axe to grind relative to anything Trump.

This veteran couldn’t care less (same with Obama) whether a POTUS ever sees my grave. We generally don’t do what we do to have people fawn over us, in life or in death. I imagine the sailors, marines, soldiers and airman of other countries feel similarly.

Trump made his "virtue signal or else" bed and now he can lie in it.

...our Great American Flag (or Country) and should stand for the National Anthem. If not, YOU'RE FIRED. Find something else to do!

Any other day of the week you'd have many calling veterans mindless killers and burning the flag when they aren't
spitting on the graves of vets.

Trump doesn't visit a memorial site?



They all become proud nationalists and uber patriots.

You know what I bet veterans and active military care most about????

...being sent into a war or two to potentially die.... based off of lies and greed!

I think it's more a matter of respect for those who gave their lives so we could lead ours.

I'd like to believe that you aren't one who routinely craps on vets and that you are sincere in your post.

Is it just me, or does this president get a LOT more news stories than any other in modern history? It’s like we’re watching the Truman show. All trump all the time

My brother in law is a retired Navy vet so yes I have respect for him and the military.

Trump should have laid the wreath , it's his job.

Utter rubbish. If Obama had blown off a memorial ceremony to the dead WW1 Marines at Belleau Wood it would have been reason to impeach him on the part of the GOP and some of the more deranged members of this website would have called for worse.
This is a case of double standards on the part of people who seem to think that Trump can do no wrong. Here's a newsflash for you, he can. He did in this case. This is an insult to the dead.

I picture all those criticizing the president taking a dump on the flag while bitching.


The mental picture is like "2 girls and a flag" only without the girls.



When I picture you, i actually picture the dump..add some value and cut the insults out..Staying on topic, Even though I think the president should have attended, i'm sure he has a valid reason and him not attending is not the end of the world.

While this is obviously blown out of proportion, the guy still could have gone to pay his respects despite the rain. a reply to: gladtobehere



Fully agree

All of a sudden the left gets patriotic. I wonder if they're for kneeling during the National Anthem while it's raining.

Nope it's not, but the Fake News would have portrayed it as such. If Trump had made the visit that's what all the headlines would be about. Just last week SNL was making fun of a veteran over an injury he sustained in combat, but not many complained about a real insult.

I personally am not for kneeling during the National Anthem but the first amendment gives them the right so I cannot be against the constitution. Its the same Constitution that I stand by even though I'm for gun control..I must stand by the right to bear arms as the founders knew what they were doing.

Well yesterday he was ranting about how Obama disrespected the military then he doesn’t turn up to a memorial that he really should have attended to pay respect to the service men and women who have bled and died for their country.....because it’s a bit wet outside.

Nope it's not, but the Fake News would have portrayed it as such.

Don't understand what you mean , the grave site is the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial what does fake news have to to with it.



If Trump had made the visit that's what all the headlines would be about.

Of course but it would have been positive news about how the President laid a wreath in honor of your WW1 fallen.
