As President Trump was boarding Marine One, he paused to pick up the cover of a Marine standing next to the aircraft. The wind had blown the cover off, and Trump placed it back on the Marine’s head. After Trump replaced it, the wind blew it off a second time. Trump retrieved it once again.
This is pretty great. Marine's hat blows off in wind. POTUS retrieves. Hat flies off again. POTUS retrieves again pic.twitter.com/uxBpvcAx4J

That particular tweet and video of the moment is from a CNN reporter.
Kind gesture. I like that ? https://t.co/q9PosIgNtF

This is nice. Also kudos to the soldier standing at attention. https://t.co/ALNewF2AaH

Even I'll admit that was a nice gesture https://t.co/XzWAD5IoSR

Of course, leave it to a British GQ reporter to blatantly and obstinately miss the point.
Forget the sexual assault bragging, the mocking of the disabled, etc because he picked up a hat, guys https://t.co/F8f3lxwtzV

Take a deep breath.
Editor’s note: A previous version of this story mistakenly referred to the Marine as a “soldier” and his cover as a “hat.” We apologize for the error and thank a Twitchy reader for bringing this to our attention.
