Going into Thursday’s “Salute to America” event in Washington led by President Trump, there were a lot of skeptics as to whether he could honor the nation without turning the event into a political rally.
The success of the event was probably best and most concisely summed up by Brit Hume.
One thing the Trump speech was not about: it was not about him.

It was an event that appropriately paid tribute to our nation’s history as well as those currently serving in our armed forces.
Good all around.

Think of all the wasted breath about what might have been that led up to it.
