    It's unfortunate that you blame race and nothing else as the main problem.

    Oh there are all sorts of things wrong in our country but I thought we were discussing race in this particular discussion. If you want to downplay and dismiss the problem that's okay. I won't deny your right to denial!
    We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty. We must remember always that accusation is not proof and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men. Edward R. Murrow

    Trump sits, talks through song lowering the flag at military base amid NFL anthem controversy

    President Trump sat and talked through the nightly playing of "Retreat" as the American flag was lowered on a Pennsylvania Air National Guard base during his interview with Sean Hannity.
    Trump, who has been criticizing NFL players who kneel through the national anthem to protest racism, seemed caught off-guard by loudspeakers playing "Retreat." The song is played every night at military bases to signal the American flag being lowered and the end of the official duty day.

    Military site Task and Purpose was the first to notice Trump sitting during the song. According to Task and Purpose, uniformed service members are required to stop what they're doing and salute the flag as its lowered during the song while civilians are required to place their hand over their heart.


    Trump not only does not stand or place his hand over his heart, but instead talks through the song and assumes it's being played to honor him or Hannity.
    People watching the rally can be seen standing for the song in the background of Trump's interview but Trump seems to not know what the song means.
    "Are they playing that for you or for me?" Trump joked to Hannity.

    I remember scrambling to the chow hall trying to avoid standing out there during 5 pm retreat. Fun times.
