Donald Trump became the first sitting president to attend the New York City Veterans Day Parade Monday, and he was joined by Vice President Mike Pence and first lady Melania Trump.

“It is truly an honor to come back to New York City to Madison Square Park to be the first president to ever attend America’s parade,” he said, touting his New York City roots.

In his speech, he made reference to recent American military victories, including the operation to kill ISIS terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi last month. Trump also touted the satisfaction with Veterans Affairs health care.

His comments drew mild and subdued applause from the crowd.

..........During the laying of the wreath and the playing of Taps, Trump put his hand over his heart, but wife Melania didn’t, which doesn’t follow normal protocol for the playing of Taps..................

3. personally I'd like to put a lot of this "lapel pin" nonsense to rest

people in uniform have certain prescribed forms ... For everybody else it's just convention. And harping on it is just ... silly.

So, people in your family (or your little Whoville) didn't all take their hats off for the national anthem. BFD!!!

(and I'm not going to even get in to who the biggest flag wavers and "sticklers" for convention are now supporting!)

4. Meh . . . bite me. I don't either.

True caring and respect doesn't come from wearing the right thing, holding your mouth or your hand in precisely the right position - and if you don't care for and respect others, no amount of proper pomp and circumstance can paper it over.

9. She didn't know that's what we do

And she can live here the remainder of her days and still never get it

Patriotism isn't taught or discussed in a draft dodgers family
