Trump and the Troops

President Donald Trump says he loves and respects the troops. He loves the military, he says. He admires the military. He wanted a parade for Veterans Day, to honor the troops, he tells us. The reason he, and many of his allies, object to Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the national anthem is because that shows disrespect for the flag, the troops, the vets and the country. Never mind a vet suggested this exact method of protest to Kaepernick.
