During the Obama administration, there was a tremendous lack of respect for our military men and women. Barack and Michelle Obama even though they said that they respected and appreciated our military it never felt genuine. The reason that it never felt sincere was because of the actions of Barack Obama over the last 8 years. For instance, during Obama’s two disastrous terms as president, he slimmed down our military to pre-World War II levels and allowed the rise of the Islamic State. Then on top of that, his wife Michelle Obama had the audacity to say that her life was harder than a solider’s life.
Here is a bit of a flashback for you from GOP Daily Dose:
“Unlike Jill, I wasn’t a military mom,” the First Lady said, “I didn’t know much about the military, and I was probably more like the average American.”
Michelle described the myriad of meetings she had throughout the campaign with military families.
“Everywhere we went, I heard the voice of a woman that I hadn’t heard before, and it was your voice,” the First Lady said, “And I was just awed and blown away by what I heard through those voices, the challenges you all face.”
Taking it one step further, Michelle went on to compare her life campaigning with a presidential candidate to that of a military wife.
“Dealing with everything that I was dealing with—a spouse traveling, a job, kids– we didn’t deal with multiple moves, but I learned about the challenges that happen when you move from base to base to base,” Michelle said, “The way your kids have to adjust on a dime. And doing it knowing that the person you love is in harm’s way. And those stories moved me in a way that I didn’t expect.”
Yeah, that is exactly the same as a military family….NOT!
At any rate, President Trump has been in office for less than a year, and he and his wife Melania have shown more respect than the Obama’s did in the last 8 years. A perfect example of that would be what Melania Trump posted on Facebook that has put the Obama’s to shame.
On Friday, Melania Trump posted an image that specifically thanked a U.S. Army regiment for helping her and her staff arrive safely to their meetings at the G-7 summit in Italy.
The post reads, “Thank you to the @usarmy 1-214th Aviation Regiment for getting me & my staff to our mtgs safely today!”
Now, that is class folks! I mean could you imagine Michelle saying something like that to our military?
But, that is not all Melania did to show her appreciation to our brave men and women. Right before the Trump’s left for their trip abroad, Melania announced that she would be “meeting with the wives and children of U.S. and allied soldiers” during the couple’s pass through Italy, according to Newsweek.
Here is more from Newsweek:
“In a statement, Melania Trump said she was looking forward to supporting Donald Trump on his first foreign tour, as well as meeting with the wives and children of U.S. and allied soldiers.
“I am very excited for the upcoming trip,” she said. “This will not just be an opportunity to support my husband as he works on important matters of national security and foreign relations, it will also be my honor to visit and speak with women and children from different countries, with different perspectives.
Donald Trump is also scheduled to speak with the American and allied military members and their families in Sicily, during which National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster saidDonald Trump plans to “thank them for the sacrifices they all make to keep us safe, and he’ll also recap the highlights and accomplishments of the trip.”
But, that is not all Melania has done to show her appreciation for our military. Earlier, this month Melania also invited “active-duty troops, their spouses, and mothers” to the White House for a special Mother’s Day event.
The president introduced First Lady Melania Trump, who said she was honored by the military members’ presence as the nation celebrates National Military Appreciation Month and Mother’s Day.
“As everyone in this room knows, mother is a title that claims your heart and changes your life forever,” the first lady said. “In fact, it has been said that having a child means allowing your heart to walk around outside of your body. For the mothers of someone who has, or is, serving our country, this must be especially true.”
Noting that while she, too, is a mother, Melania Trump said she does not know of the many different challenges that come with being the parent of a service member.
“While you stand with many other parents, so strong and so proud, I am sure that you sometimes march on this journey alone,” the first lady said, adding, “While your sons and daughters are away serving so selflessly, having a community share even some of that burden must make all the difference in the world.”
Melania Trump told the mothers in the audience they are part of a community, and the White House is proud to be a part of it with them.
“Thank you for all that you do, for your selflessness and for your own sacrifice on behalf of our country,” she said.
“Let today’s celebration with this community of strong and selfless moms be a first step in building relationships,” the first lady said, “and in your knowing, that my husband and I, along with … everyone here at the White House, hold you close in our hearts and thoughts each and every day.”
Here is a video on that occasion.
I think it is clear to see how much our First Lady loves and supports our brave men and women. Her actions not only are sincere but she it is evident that she is proud to be an American. While with Michelle Obama it seemed that she was just playing a role to appease us, and Melania Trump’s actions ring true.
I am just so proud of our First Lady and it is good to finally see someone who is proud of our country again.
