Tim Mak, Daily Beast: Military Brass Not Impressed by Trump

Donald Trump traveled to Baltimore to speak to a National Guard conference full of military brass who, by all indications, hadn’t forgotten his criticism of them from last week.

BALTIMORE — If Donald Trump expected to get a warm reception from a group of people he just dissed, he didn’t get it.

“I’ve met more generals [here] than I’ve ever met in my life. I like them and they like me,” Trump told the crowd packed into the Baltimore Convention Center attending The National Guard Association of the United States’ annual conference.

It sure didn’t feel that way.

The audience, made up primarily of officers in the U.S. National Guard, was lukewarm at best. His applause lines drew a tepid response. A noticeable number of people in the audience declined to clap at all, such as when he bragged about his poll numbers.

WNU Editor: I recall reading the same thing when Senator Obama was running for the Presidency in 2008. Bottom line .... the Generals and the Admirals will follow the President .... whoever he (or she) is.

The DailyBeast is not a news source it is a dem propaganda arm.


Full speech there at every stop including his entrance is as much applause as you would expect with a few like were he drives home the one people one flag one nation stuff around 20:30 mark that just seems to drag on and on.

No boos no slow weak claps no unhappy sounding I had to show up to this POS.

Hillary would make a better CINC?

She might not even be able to take the proverbial 3 AM phone call.

She might be comatose.

Would Bill reach over her to take the call?

Have they even shared the same bed in 15 or 20 years?

On a side note:

Did Hillary receive danger pay, when sleeping with Bill?

Or put another way, how many times did Bill give Hillary an STD?
