This is what happens when a real leader walks into the Pentagon.
An attendee at President Donald Trump’s speech in the Pentagon on Thursday began waving a red Make America Great Again hat when the president walked onstage, in a show of support show of support for President Trump.

Some reporters inside the auditorium captured the awesome moment:

Defense Department video also caught the moment — which begins at about 11:17 minutes into the video on the far upper left side.
It is not clear whether the person waving the MAGA hat was a Pentagon civilian employee, a military employee, or a visitor to the building. Entrance into the building is typically restricted to those who work inside the building, have a building pass, or are escorted by a Pentagon employee.
There was also a number of senior civilian and military leaders who attended the speech, including Acting Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan, Army Secretary Mark Esper, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson, Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), Army Chief of Staff Mark Milley, and other members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The President responded to the massive applause, “Wow, that’s really nice. Thank you. You’re only doing that because I gave you the greatest and biggest budget in our history,” prompting laughter.
“And now I’ve done it two times,” he said, prompting another round of applause.
“And I hate to tell the rest of the world, but I’m about to do it three times,” he said, prompting a third round of applause. “So that’s the only reason you gave me such a nice welcome,” President Trump joked.
Failing news network CNN on Thursday reported that Trump “is fueling unprecedented uncertainty and anxiety inside the Pentagon.” Gotta love how they spin everything. Their hatred for President Trump is becoming more and more amusing as time goes on.
Obviously, that so-called “anxiety” was not apparent during President Trump’s speech or during the standing ovation he received as he walked onstage.
I’m sure the military is happy about finally having a real leader that cares for them. It has been a very long time since they’ve had any support from the President of the United States.
