  6. True story from back in the day:

    Ronaldus Magnus stopped off at El Toro, and started walking along the Visiting Aircraft Line, stretching his legs. He and his detail and staffers reached a group of Marines working on an airplane, and he comes over and asks what’s up…

    Everyone snaps to attention, and he’s very chill, and asks questions about their jobs, etc. The staffers get their names, and he continues on with his walk. The Marines go back to work, a little shell-shocked–they kind of felt as if it hadn’t quite happened, and no one would believe them if they said anything…

    Fast forward three weeks.

    Those guys he talked to? Reagan sent a very complimentary letter to their CO, praising their professional demeanor and their hard work in the summer sun…

    You know they were waiting there, hoping he would come out. What a great guy. He never lost touch with the “little guy”. Not only did he sign that guy’s MAGA hat, he gave him his own pen to keep. Aside from the increased responsibility soirees like this bring, the SS agents must get a kick out of serving this president.

      Typically, the Presidential Protective Detail freaks out over these impromptu changes , they have every detail planned out well in advance and don’t like a sudden change that exposes the President, at least the one’s who are serious enough about their job as to sacrifice themselves to protect him.

      The gripping their jackets is sort of standard. It keeps their hands at the ready… And since they don’t have their jackets buttoned keeps all the stuff on their belt hidden.

      If you watch the SS instead of Trump you can see how they work together as a team. Some have their heads on a swivel, others are focused more narrowly. Trump has SS on 3 sides that we can see and some who are the closest to him aren’t gripping their labels, but have their hands and bodies guiding and protecting him.

    Might be just something I’ve noticed, but Republican Presidents seems to get a much better response out of our troops when they visit than Democrat Presidents. The troop responses just seem more sincere and Republicans seem to enjoy being with the troops so much more.

      Imagine your job is to win wars and break things. The Dems come out and politic that every time we go to battle, we break too many things, so don’t try to win so hard. Maybe we take some weapons away, too expensive. The problem is, when you aren’t playing hard to win, you take casualties, and your friends are maimed or killed. And you get to see first hand those who are left behind with just the memories, while the politicos return to their offices and media jaunts. So, it is not surprising when you have a Leader that says, take the gloves off, win, and get out.

    At Spyglass Hills Golf Course, in 2007 at the AT&T Golf Tournament (used to be called the Crosby), Donald Trump, paired with two pros and one other amateur, actor Mark Wahlberg, our POTUS was the only one of the four to proceed to the ropes to sign autographs for a group of about 6 or 7 junior high school age boys calling out “Mark, Mark” and “Mr. Trump, Mr. Trump.” I was standing with them as he approached. He engaged the group as he signed their hats and visors with questions about their hobbies and interests. I started to ask for an autograph, then recalled the small handful of celebrity autographs I did have—vestiges of fond memories, but the memories are what are important, not the tiny slips of paper–and I simply took in the scene of the happiness of those boys as Mr. Trump gave them much more than just the “time of day.”

    Fond, fond memory (and yeah, it would be cool indeed if I did have an autograph of a POTUS, esp. this POTUS) but the memory and sharing it with you is worth much more.

      One thing that jumps out about Trump: He likes people. Interacting with people. Creating a memory. How many of those military folks will remember shaking hands with the POTUS on a runway in Alaska for the rest of their lives? Taking a selfie with him, or getting him on video? it’s one reason he is president today … Hillary can’t stand average Americans. Neither could Obama. For all his flaws, Trump has the gift of being to relate to all kinds of people … and he really does appreciate our military

      That is an interesting story, it seems weird that Mark Wahlberg would enjoy golf with Mr. Trump and then turn so virulently against him. He is one I would have expected to be pro AmericaFirst, but have been disappointed.

        Trump doesn’t need him. He’s damaged goods.
        He needs a job so he follows the crowd .he doesn’t wants go back to jail.

        April 1988, Wahlberg approached a middle-aged Vietnamese man named Thanh Lam on the street and, using a large wooden stick, struck him in the head until he was knocked unconscious while calling him a “Vietnam fucking shit”. That same day, Wahlberg also attacked a second Vietnamese man named Hoa “Johnny” Trinh, punching him in the eye without provocation. According to court documents regarding these crimes, when Wahlberg was arrested later that night and returned to the scene of the first assault, he stated to police officers: “You don’t have to let him identify me, I’ll tell you now that’s the mother-fucker whose head I split open. Investigators also noted that Wahlberg “made numerous unsolicited racial statements about ‘gooks’ and ‘slant-eyed gooks'”.

        Wahlberg was charged with attempted murder, pled guilty to assault, and was sentenced to two years in Suffolk County Deer Island House of Correction. He ultimately served 45 days of his sentence, but carries a permanent felony record. Wahlberg believed he had left Trinh permanently blind in one eye.

        They were done with their round, coming off the 18th green and I felt really bad for the kids that Marky Mark did NOT even turn his head as they called his name…just kept walking. Even a wave of the hand or a tip of his cap to the kids would have, I am sure, been meaningful to them, would have acknowledged them, but nope.

      When future President Trump came to Little Rock AR for one of his early rallies, most of my fam made the drive to see him. He signed many autographs but one son and our oldest
      granddaughter tried multiple times to get their hat and t shirt signed. They figured out the exit Mr Trump would take and raced to get there before he left. As he was walking up the tunnel ramp my son yelled “ Mr Trump, sign my hat”
      Mr Trump heard him, stopped and motioned for them to toss it to his detail. He graciously signed hat and t shirt. Great man and great memory

    Trump at age 73 is a true success, a good man, public-spirited, striving to take the People’s Interests well in-hand.

    On our historically objective, triplet-grouping normal curve, we rate him fourth of 44 incumbent Presidents (not double-counting Grover Cleveland). As time wears on to (say) AD 2040, the country’s next generational inflection-point, this early impression will only be confirmed.

        Well, I had Tricky Dick Nixon. He was not exactly beloved among enlisted men and many non-lifer officers either. He withheld a pay raise Congress had voted to give us in the early 1970’s, but we received it with interest after he resigned. I remember the day I got the check in the mail. It was totally unexpected and it came at the perfect time. I was drawing unemployment while living near the beach in Santa Cruz. Ah, those were the days. Young, single, women everywhere and not a care in the world. 🙂

    “On May 20, Border Patrol agents in the Del Rio Sector arrested nearly 400 people, making it the sector’s busiest day in more than 10 years. Since October 1, 2018, arrests have increased 200 percent from last year, totaling over 29,000 individuals to date. Of these, over 16,500 have either been a part of a family unit or an unaccompanied alien child. This vulnerable demographic has risen dramatically, now over 750 percent in comparison to the same period of time last year.”
