Awww, it’s sort of adorable how hard Conor tried to make a dig at Trump about the vets and get Laura Ingraham’s attention.
And by adorable we mean sad, predictable, and all fail.
Today I am thinking about what conservative media would publish and broadcast for the next week if Barack Obama had blown off a major WWI commemoration because of rain. I am especially thinking of @IngrahamAngle.

Today we are thinking about how hypocritical our dear friends on the Left are.
Obama blocked WW2 vets from visiting WW2 memorials out of spite over a budget dispute….. https://t.co/gMfJMwlzh0

Eventually, they’ll figure out for every gripe they have with Trump, Obama was even worse … but until then we’ll just keep making fun of them.
And look, we didn’t agree with Trump bugging out on the ceremony over a little rain (c’mon, man) but for the Left to completely ignore how horrible Obama was to the right and his obvious disdain for the military is pretty damn ridiculous.
And we veterans responded by marching to the monument, removing the barricades and dumping them at the front gate of the White House.

Yup. Obama took the time and effort to have barricades set up around an open air war memorial while citing the shutdown.
Also cancelled an annual Air Show in California.

Obama didn’t get his way with the budget so he shut down the memorials to hurt the Right by hurting the vets.
I was in Normandy during Obama's shutdown. A WWII vet was traveling with us. His children had taken him there to visit the graves of the men with whom he had served. He was turned away at the American cemetery because Obama had ordered it closed.

I also remember when Nobama had the Marines hold an umbrella for him.
…and when he didn't salute anyone in the Marines.
….and when he traded 5 Taliban for 1 traitor.

Ok, not really but you get the point …
