There is no protocol that requires the president, the first lady, or other members of the White House to salute, either when disembarking from a Marine One helicopter or elsewhere.

Brian Adam Jones, a former marine correspondent and co-founder of the military veteran forum Task & Purpose, wrote in 2014 that there is no regulation stipulating that presidents must salute.

“In fact, for the first 192 years of our republic, it didn't happen," Jones wrote.

"None of the first 38 commanders in chief did it. And some of those dudes had some serious military experience. Eisenhower? Grant? I mean, Teddy Roosevelt was a war hero.

"Surely he felt compelled to click his heels together and cut a perfect knife-handed salute when he passed a uniform service member, right? Wrong."

Ronald Reagan (the former president in movie actor) started the practice, but wondered if it were appropriate or not. So he asked the commandant of the United States Marine Corps and get his advice, and the commandant's advice ran something like this: You're the goddamn president. You can salute whoever you goddamn well please.

    Our dear Hate is nothing if not gullible.

    Plus, you've got to remember how little Conservatives and Republicans and MAGAs like Hate have to work with regarding Biden. He's done far better than anyone expected, so things like this or the color of his suit or some such nonsense has got to be milked for everything their mendacious hearts can blow out of all proportion.

    Great catch, Curt.

    There are times, when I'm linking to the real world and reporting news, I try to imagine the Good German take. It's an amusing little thought experiment. FYI, my guess, normally, is muted...waaaaaaaaaay muted.

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha, ahhhhhhhhhhh!

    I remember your muted response when Trump refused attend the dignified transfer of fallen soldiers. I also remember your muted response when it was reported that Trump, a bone spur sufferer, called soldiers "losers" and "suckers".


    Trump Stopped Going to Dover AFB To Receive Bodies After Getting Berated On First Visit
    Bill Owens, the father of William “Ryan” Owens, refused to shake Trump’s hand at that Feb. 1, 2017, encounter, the aide said, and then told Trump that he was responsible for his son’s death for approving the disastrous raid in Yemen without bothering to understand the risks.

    “He refused to go back for two years, he was so rattled,” the aide said, adding that the main reason Trump had approved the raid just five days after taking office was that predecessor Barack Obama had refused to do so.



    Report: Trump disparaged US war dead as ‘losers,’ ‘suckers’
    A senior Defense Department official with firsthand knowledge of events and a senior U.S. Marine Corps officer who was told about Trump’s comments confirmed some of the remarks to The Associated Press, including the 2018 cemetery comments.

    The defense officials said Trump made the comments as he begged off visiting the cemetery outside Paris during a meeting following his presidential daily briefing on the morning of Nov. 10, 2018.

    Y'know, I keep wanting to express my opinion of Trump here. I guess I never have.

    I think that Trump is despicable. So there.

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha

    Any time your argument for Clouseau involves comparing him to OrangeMan, you lose.

    HtS,
    I was not comparing Biden to Trump. I was commenting on the hypocrisy of Biden attackers and Trump enablers. Trump voters never fault him for any of his specific acts or statements. Trump voters are much quicker to fault Biden over picayune matters and imagined issues.


  8. by Ponderer on January 29, 2023 11:21 am

    Hate isn't about to ever cop to his boundless hypocrisy, Curt.



  9. by Ponderer on January 29, 2023 11:23 am

    "Any time your argument for Clouseau involves comparing him to OrangeMan, you lose." -Hate

    Only in your own little bubble of alternate reality that you have blown out of your own ass, Bill.
