President Donald Trump once again did the unthinkable.
He had the audacity to delivered a double fist pump as he walked away from Air Force One on Tuesday when he was en route to a 9/11 memorial ceremony at the Flight 93 crash site in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.
So once again the media are upset. And what does the media do when they are upset with President Trump, which is most of the time, they immediately attacked him by saying the gesture is “disrespectful.”
But one National Guardsman disagrees as he told The Daily Caller that everything was not exactly as it seemed.
“The POTUS landed at our Johnstown flight facility, a military installation owned by the Reserves and the National Guard,” he said, “and, well, prior to his arrival, we were allowed to gather in this designated area to greet him prior to his boarding a helicopter and flying to the Flight 93 memorial service.”
The service member asked to remain anonymous as he told The Daily Caller that the double fist pump was a greeting and nothing more.
“As he approached us soldiers, marines, and airmen, many were shouting and waving at him. That is when he did the ‘double fist pump’ — he was genuinely happy to say hello and shake hands, and you could tell he was proud to be greeted by ‘his’ military members.”

The service member then continued:
“I am telling you this because not even an hour later, the press was criticizing him for doing that on hallowed ground, and he should have been more respectful of the heroes of Flight 93. Well, I got to see FIRST hand how biased the liberal media is towards him. They took a photo completely twisted it around to make him look bad, and it was nowhere near the truth. And our past president has the nerve to also criticize the POTUS for shunning the media. I wonder why he does. So, that is the truth of what really happened, not the story the media produced or the haters of our president.”
Isn’t it great how the media grasps at anything to make the president look bad? Yet they forget their messiah and hero Barack Hussein Obama didn’t even know what a corpsman was.
Pretty sure he was wearing one of those mouth pieces after talking A LOT lately, like speeches every day! At least you know he KNOWS what the word is, unlike Obama and his uneducated pronunciation of corpsman, LOL: https://t.co/4T5715XwZu

If you think about it. If the media would have been this fierce with Obama we would have probably not had to put up with 8 years of his anti-Americanism, lack of patriotism and outright disdain for our country. But they didn’t say even 10% of what Obama really was, while they rip Trump a new one day after day. Not sure many people can take that much abuse, and that’s what the media is counting on, but hey, President Trump isn’t just anyone and he makes me wonder if the last 4 presidents were even trying when you consider all the great things he has done. The video of Trump greeting the troops is at the end of this article.
Here is more on Trump’s accomplishments via The Hill:
1. The tax-cut bill
Trump capped off 2017 with his first major legislative victory — the passage of the Republicans’ tax-cut bill, which slashes the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent and reduces individual rates as well as implements some key breaks.
2. Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the Supreme Court
Trump’s biggest early victory came when the Senate, in April, confirmed Neil Gorsuch to succeed the late Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court.
3. Roll-back of regulations
Trump signed an executive order cutting regulations for small businesses and moved forward with plans to repeal the Clean Power Plan, one of Obama’s signature acts as president. Trump has also overseen moves to expand oil drilling in the Arctic and Gulf of Mexico and granted a permit to the Keystone XL pipeline previously rejected by Obama.
4. The travel ban
Trump ran on a platform of tougher immigration enforcement, both to protect American jobs and national security. A week into his presidency, he took one of his most controversial steps, banning most travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations from entering the United States.
Trump hasn’t been able to make progress on building a wall on the Mexican border, however.
5. Declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel
In a radical departure from decades of foreign policy, Trump announced that the U.S. would formally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and begin the process of moving its embassy to the contested holy city.
6. Withdrawal from Paris climate deal
Trump followed through on one of his major campaign promises when he announced in June that the U.S. would leave the Paris climate deal reached under Obama.
7. Pulling out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership
Trump began his presidency by carrying out another key promise, withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive trade deal with Asia he had called a “potential disaster for our country.”
8. Roll-back of some of Obama’s Cuba policies
Trump followed up on his pledge to roll back Obama’s opening up of relations with Cuba, tightening travel and commercial ties with the communist island.
9. Moving to repeal Obama’s net neutrality rules
In another blow to regulations enacted under Obama, the Federal Communications Commission voted to repeal its landmark net neutrality rules this month.
10. Fighting — and further degrading — ISIS
Largely following Obama’s strategy, Trump dealt major blows to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, forcing the terrorist group to retreat from its two self-declared capitals: Mosul and Raqqa, located in Iraq and Syria, respectively.
