Once again, here comes a mainstream media journalist to try to counter a message from the president. On Wednesday, President Trump tweeted a video of him arriving at a Florida rally in Marine One, juxtaposed with video of Joe Biden descending the steps to a rally crowd of around 30 people in Georgia.

Washington Post national security correspondent Greg Miller wanted to know if Marine One was “really swooping over rally crowds to whip up supporters.”
Is Marine One really swooping over rally crowds to whip up supporters of the president?
(Or is this a new way to disperse covid droplets?) https://t.co/hvKbtIl1VZ

It took them a day, but the Marines got back to Miller.
The flight did not fly over (or hover over) the assembled crowd. The entire flight was conducted in accordance with @USNavy and Marine Corps regulations, operating procedures and safety protocols. Marine One landed a safe distance from the crowd.

Other than that, though, great tweet, @gregpmiller

Liberals claim to love the military until they see the Commander in Chief arrive on Marine One.

Never a doubt in my mind. The Marines and Sailors of the HMX1 are top notch. It's sad that the media even asked these ridiculous questions.

Greg is in desperate need of attention and a fake story.

.@gregpmiller Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with you? The angle doesn't show the safe distance, so you are going to make shit up? This is why @washingtonpost is losing subscribers every day. @USMC would never compromise laws and regulations for a stunt like you suggested.

It’s amazing how many people in the replies think Trump has corrupted the Marines and made them lie about the landing.
