CNN Horrified to See Troops Getting MAGA Hats Signed by Trump

So first, the narrative was that Trump was an unpatriotic coward for refusing to visit the troops during the Christmas season. Then when that was ruined, the media turned to saying how Trump telegraphed the visit by staying off Twitter for too long and social media caught on and it was all one big OpSec disaster. Then when that silliness failed to catch hold, CNN went as far as to start attacking our warriors in Iraq, claiming that they were violating military regulations by…you know, being excited to meet President Trump!

In a segment on Wednesday night, CNN Chief Clown In Charge Jim Acosta led a panel discussion about Trump’s visit to Iraq. It wasn’t long, of course, until CNN’s crack team of experts found new and inventive ways to criticize the commander-in-chief (and, incidentally, those who serve our nation in a war zone).

“Is that unusual?” Acosta asked of the images showing Trump sign Make America Great Again and Trump 2020 hats for soldiers. “To see the president doing that on base? Does this run the risk of the President, you know, facing some accusations that he’s turning some of this into a campaign stop? What do you think?”

Not at all, Jim. Oh, and you’re an idiot.

Unfortunately, we weren’t on the panel.

Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr was, however, and she told Acosta that while early reports had the troops bringing their own personal Trump merchandise for the president to sign, she was skeptical.

“We will have to see if that actually proves to be the case. The question is, if they brought them or if the President brought them; what commander allowed that to really happen,” Starr said. “Because this is very much against military policy and regulation. Troops are not supposed to be involved in political activities. The U.S. military is not a political force. And there’s no question, the saying ‘Trump 2020’ and ‘Make America Great Again,’ those are political slogans of a Trump campaign they are not governmental sayings, to say the least.”

Well, we’re pretty sure if the Commander-in-Chief of the United States Military says it’s okay, then, well, it’s okay. But what do we know, we’re not CNN “experts.”

Former Obama administration lackey John Kirby took the ball at that point and went even further into the stratosphere, hinting that these troops could get in trouble for their behavior.

“It is, in fact, a campaign slogan, that is a campaign item, and it’s completely inappropriate for the troops to do this,” Kirby whined. “Not supposed to do this. And I’m sure their boss is seeing that. They’re not going to be happy about it.”

Well, yeah, their boss was right there signing the merchandise, you moron.

CNN has officialy sunk to the new low of bashing the troops in order to make sure that Trump is the Always Enemy. Gosh, what’s next? Puppy dogs? Disabled nuns? If you support Trump, you’re on CNN’s hitlist, no matter who you are.

What a miserable excuse for a news network.

  1. Do you bring a red political hat into a war zone, or was it more likely someone from the Trump entourage handed them the campaign hats?

    • Does it matter? They are volunteer soldiers fighting to keep America safe. Of all the people in the world, these people would be the ones that want America to stand strong making their job easier. Making and keeping America great in the eyes of their enemies is their top priority. As for me, I’m just an old Vietnam veteran that has lived the cause of defending America abroad.

    • Oh, this is the worst thing that has ever happened. President Trump gave hats to the military! Terrible, terrible. OH, THE SHAME OF IT ALL!

    • how about the troop’s had already purchased those hats, knowing that, as ‘usual’, a President visits the Troops, at Christmas? You, People, (I am assuming)-REALLY NEED ‘TO GET A LIFE’! The American Military, LOVE’S, THIS MAN! Please, try to understand, ALL, of our Military, is VOLUNTEER! And, Many, have ‘Volunteered’-SINCE TRUMP, took office! Now, return to your Cavern & HUSH! No-Nothings, should SAY Nothings!

    • President Trump wasn’t handing out hats like Obama the pos handed out his photo. I bet you didn’t have a problem with that loser handing out photo’s and you just assume Trump did the same. Even the people in charge over there said Trump didn’t hand out hats. You liberals are so pathetic no wonder you watch CNN since neither of you want to know or hear the truth. Pathetic liberal hypocrites.

    • When the shid hits the fan in the streets the military is behind the patriot not the weal liberal.The unamerican liberal.Weak liberal.And they are pushing.They remind me of the kid in school that picks and picks at other students.The one day someone hauls off and kicks his azz.First thing he does is tell her is parents that someone knocked the snot out of him or her.

  2. Well for all the leftist retards out there, the President is THE highest ranking military person, being the COMMANDER AND CHEIF. There is no higher authority, PERIOD. So allenhip, you are an idiot.7

  3. It matters not what CNN writes, they will never say a good word about this President. When their Muslim favorite did the exact same thing there was not one objection from even one Democrat. Pure hate speech on the part of the left.

    • how about the troop’s had already purchased those hats, knowing that, as ‘usual’, a President visits the Troops, at Christmas? You, People, (I am assuming)-REALLY NEED ‘TO GET A LIFE’! The American Military, LOVE’S, THIS MAN! Please, try to understand, ALL, of our Military, is VOLUNTEER! And, Many, have ‘Volunteered’-SINCE TRUMP, took office! Now, return to your Cavern & HUSH! No-Nothings, should SAY Nothings!

  4. Those troops carried their own MAGA hats or family/friends had sent them. What a great memento they have! I envy them, but they deserve and earned them and jealous brat Costa does not. When will CNN realize few Americans side with them on anything?

  5. Of course CNN would be against anything to do with the connection between Trump and the military even the simplest thing like hats for they support the total control of our military to the globalist loonies at the UN where all military would serve under a ‘One World’ flag of their design.

  6. HORRIFIED ?? LOL …. Grow up, CNN … and Get With the Program. Our Military Guys & Gals realize what PRESIDENT TRUMP is doing for them, and the rest of America. He is the first dynamic Commander in Chief that they have had in decades. He has kept his campaign promises and done more for our work force, our seniors, and our trade agreements than any recent President has TRIED. And if the Wall goes up, the Democrats can say SAYONARA to their thin chances of regaining the White House in 2020.

  7. GET OVER IT. He IS their Commander In Chief, PLUS you didn’t get bent out of shape when Obama did the same thing when he was in office. REPORT worthy news and get off The Presidents back!

  8. I was in Vietnam on destroyer .We did not get to see any movie stars .ect.If i had a chance to see a president like Trump.I would have been the first in line.

  9. cnn, msnbc, etc are all commies, they want THE ONE WORLD ORDER AND DID NOT GET
    SO THEY LIE CONTINUALLY ABOUT MY PRESIDENT. Who loves America,
    and I am a PROUD MILITARY MOM NOW 23 YEARS, I SUPPORT ALL MILITARY AND
    COPS. YOU HATE AMERICA GET THE HECK OUT.
