Troops Broke Rules with Trump MAGA Hat Signings? Turns out it’s Fake News

President Trump – and U.S. troops – got all sorts of nonsense from armchair warriors in the press about the president signing MAGA hats during his trip to Iraq.

The Washington Post, relishing an opportunity to bash Trump for doing what the press insisted he do – visit a war zone – weighed in solemnly with a piece about Trump politicizing the military, which of course makes it seem like the next thing you know he’ll be establishing martial law.

Signing those hats broke military rules! We were told. Well, no.

According to the Washington Examiner:

President Trump’s signing of “Make America Great Again” hats during his whirlwind trip to visit troops in Iraq didn’t violate regulations prohibiting a mix of political and military activities, The United States Air Force in Europe says.

“There is no rule against Airmen bringing personal items to be signed by the president,” USAFE said. “Any time the commander in chief offers the opportunity to meet with Airmen, such as this official holiday visit by the President and First Lady, Airmen are welcome to participate. No policy violations have been brought to our attention at this time.”

And that story in the Post, which was at the top of the homepage this morning, is now way down on the page.

  1. I believe truly that is pretty much common knowledge, which apparently not so common.
    When Ozero autographed personal items of troops during his rare visits to them, he was swooned over by the media.
    Plenty of pictures on the Internet.
    President Trump?
    He MUST be hated.

  2. Sources close to the paper claim that the WashPost is a front for an Asian smuggling cartel that brings counterfeit alligator shoes to the US.
    The editor of the WashPost is accused by insiders of refusing to honor free speech claims by part-time reporters. It’s possible that this refusal is a serious violation of our Constitution.
    Several well-known reporters employed by the WashPost were spotted drinking heavily on Christmas Eve resulting in them being ousted by the management of a local bar.
    The WashPost has been accused of using blood-lumber instead of free-range lumber as a source for the newsprint paper.
    Oh. Fake? sure.

  3. While everyone debates the $5B to build the ‘wall, what the Fed did has been completely ignored and is ten times the cost of the wall. The Fed just raised the interest rate 1/4 of 1% which sounds like nothing except the US has $22 Trillion of debt it’s paying interest on.

    That 1/4 of 1% works out to an additional $52 Billion of interest our government must pay EACH YEAR! And, the Fed wants to raise the rates 4 more times in the coming year for a total of an additional $250+ BILLION of interest (each year) on the federal debt.

    Understand now why Trump is mad at the Fed?
