The left is always worried about the President golfing too much. Well, here he is spending Thanksgiving with the soldiers in Afghanistan for no pay. There were no planned media photo ops either.
It’s a good time to remind people that the President also gave his salary to help the opioid crisis and hasn’t taken a dime in salary.
The terminated navy Secretary thought this a good time to insult the President. He said, “the president has very little understanding of what it means to be in the military…”
Melania went with him on the trip.

FORMER NAVY SECRETARY IS OUT BASHING HIM
Former U.S. Navy Secretary Richard Spencer, who was fired by President Trump last Sunday, wrote in the Washington Post on Wednesday that the commander-in-chief has “very little understanding of what it means to be in the military.”
“This was a shocking and unprecedented intervention in a low-level review. It was also a reminder that the president has very little understanding of what it means to be in the military, to fight ethically or to be governed by a uniform set of rules and practices.”
The President knows enough to go visit them on Thanksgiving.
Spencer should look to his own failings. He was dishonest with his superiors and tried to work a sneaky deal with the President whereby he would stack the review board so Eddie Gallagher would keep his Trident Pin.
The troops greeted him warmly, they were thrilled, so they might disagree with Spencer.
THE PRESIDENT OF AFGHANISTAN PRAISED HIM
Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani praised President Trump for the killing of ISIS leader Abu al-Baghdadi last month. He said it was more important than the killing of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in 2011 because Baghdadi was a doer.
He would probably disagree with Spencer too.
