Ah, Kamala Harris. She was the most leftist senator in Congress, with a voting record more radical than Bernie Sanders. And much like Sanders, she appears to have a general dislike for law enforcement and the military.
We shouldn’t be surprised. Democrats draw their values from the morally-bankrupt counter-culture movement of the ‘60s and ‘70s, when drugged-up hippies protested our men in uniform. The most liberal of the party continues to dismiss and insult the men and women who risk their lives for us.
Over this week, Americans started to notice a peculiar trend from Harris. Whenever she boards a plane or passes by our military, she seems to ignore them. Even though our troops salute her with respect, Harris appears to act like they are pieces of furniture. People started asking why Harris shows our soldiers so much disrespect.
Americans are growing concerned that our “vice president” cannot even show appreciation for the people who protect her. We know that Harris is an idiot, laughing stupidly when asked serious questions. But we thought that at least she’d show a modicum of respect when interacting with our soldiers.
Now, the Pentagon, an agency corrupted by political hacks, is stumbling to cover for this pathetic excuse for a leader.
The Pentagon said in a statement Tuesday that Vice President Kamala Harris “has made very clear her respect and admiration” for the military after she received flak for not returning salutes by the Air Force honor guard welcoming her aboard Air Force Two.
“There is no overarching instruction or regulation that requires the President or Vice President to return hand salutes from members of the Armed Forces,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said in a statement. [Source: Breitbart]
The Pentagon explained that no, the vice president does not have to salute our guards who welcome her aboard Air Force Two. B-but, that’s okay, because she has “made very clear” she loooves our soldiers. M-hm! You all just haven’t seen it, but trust us, she does.
It’s pretty sad that the Pentagon has to cover for a woman that pretends like our troops are invisible. A woman that is so bad at politics, she dropped out of the Democratic primaries before voting even started.
How has Harris made it “very clear” that she supports our troops? By saying and doing nothing? From all appearances, she is like Michelle Obama before her—who seemed to despise the very people protecting her.
And why isn’t Harris coming out to defend herself? Why does she need some chump from the Pentagon explaining all this? It would all be cleared up if Harris actually proved she appreciated the troops by her actions.
But, as usual, Democrats think they can get away with anything, if they say the right things.
Proving that, for them, words speak louder than actions.
