The cadets and the midshipmen loved it. They know he has got their back. I fully expect him to break tradition and give the commencement speech at both academies and the Air Force, too.
Trump had a good time, spending the first half on the Army side and the second half on the Navy side with Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, USMC. That is the tradition.
In-between halves, he did some time with the CBS announcers and said:
I just love the armed forces, love the folks. Their spirit is so incredible, I mean, I don't know if it is necessarily the best football, but they have the best spirit -- more than anybody -- it's beautiful!Some people tried to make a controversy of this, but everyone knows football is not why those boys are there. They have been preparing since junior high to become military officers. Young women too.
Trump appreciates it.
Obama does not.
In 40 days, Trump will be commander-in-chief, and he told CBS: "It's a humbling thought. It's a great honor and a great responsibility."
Not many things humble Donald Trump.
I hope he enjoys these finally few weeks (less than six now) when he is working hard and enjoying the limelight. This will not last. Never does. But if he is as skilled a CEO as I think he is, President Trump will enjoy a fun eight years in which we make America great again.
Have a little fun. Read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
