Video of Dolt45 saluting a North Korean general. President Obama would have been blasted for this.

Red T Raccoon @RedTRaccoon

Donald Trump salutes a North Korean general.

This salute is now being used as propaganda in North Korea.

What would Truman and MacArthur say about this?

Do we need to make a note?

2. How can one get a link to that?

I have certain right-wingnuts who must see this! They made a huge deal of Obama bowing and I debated it with them at length!

4. President Obama

Would never do that. President Obama is a Statesman. Flaccid 45, is a joke. A very bad joke. trump and his roaches are exactly who they have always been, tasteless, classless, invertebrates who only believe what they are told to believe by their Fox "news' handlers.

Comparing a Statesmen like Obama to a 'wanna be' dictator like trump is like comparing a rainbow to a hurricane.

5. Not sure where you got the "do not salute the enemy" thing...

Perhaps you might take a look at this prisoner exchange conducted during an active war:



https://donmooreswartales.com/2010/05/12/harry-glixon/

The officer giving the Hitler salute in the foreground was in charge of the POW exchange for the Germans. Andrew Gerow Hodges, the American Red Cross representative in the dark uniform in the center, set up the prisoner exchange in Brittany in November 1944. Pvt. Harry Glixon of Sarasota, Fla. was a member of the 301st Infantry Regiment, 94th Division of the 3rd Army who was exchanged by the enemy.

Not clear about the parallel?

12. Those soldiers are saluting the enemy


And were remarkably not court-martialed. The fact that it was a prisoner exchange does not change the fact that it is a medieval holdover from raising one's visor to show one's face to another similarly armored person, as a signal of non-threat.

This is Obama bowing through the looking glass. It is not going to persuade anyone of anything, nor will it offend or fail to offend anyone in any productive manner. Anyone who didn't like Trump will be offended. Anyone who did like Trump will not be offended. It will simply result in exchanges of pictures of Obama bowing (where that was the appropriate greeting), football players kneeling, Bush stepping on the flag (yeah, he did that), etc..

6. Though I don't see anything wrong with the exchange...

...I agree that Fox & Friends would be drawing up articles of impeachment had it happened to Obama.

11. The exchange of salutes.

Trump was obviously expecting a handshake, but received and returned a salute, then went ahead with the handshake.
