your salute


Mr. President ; My name is Allan J Raymond I am a veteran of the US Army 1972. I am a registered republican but I did vote for you & I feel you are doing a great job. But only a couple of weeks ago I saw a clip of you coming off the helicopter & saluting with a coffee cup in your hand. I was taken back by this, I felt that you have disrespected our great country & all the veterans who fought to make this country so great. I am now having second thoughts I am thinking maybe I have been wrong about you all these years please do something to change my mind,I have all ways stood up for you , I know were only human but this really made a bad impression on me & all of my friends, we all make mistakes but you are THE PRESIDENT you can not make mistakes like that. Thank you for listening .

Are you saying you are minimizing everything. The president has done over a coffee cup? Unbelievable! So sad! My empathy just jumped out the window!
