That's not accurate. A soldier can go on sick call at any time.

Of course there is protocol. The soldier must go through proper channels. The President if he is sick or whatever must follow protocol as well. Trump did not do that, unless he had a heart attack or something along those lines, he has no excuse for missing giving his respect for the fallen.

President Trump is spending Monday at the White House and had no plans to visit Arlington National Cemetery in northern Virginia as America observes the Veterans Day holiday.

The White House announced a so-called travel lid at 10 a.m. ET, meaning that the president is not expected to hold any public events or leave the executive mansion.
==============================================
The observation that Trump doesn't care about the military or those who served was made clear today. And no rain storm to use as an excuse.

Hey Trump cultists.....your president doesn't care about the military...unless he can use them as a prop (caravan!!).

They still won't get it...

I think there should be an explanation as to why he was not in attendance at Arlington today, however, even if there was one, his haters wouldn't believe it.

What his haters think is of no concern to why he failed the nation on such an important day.

Not when they have an important duty to fulfill. It is a matter of honor and respect. Been there, done that many times.

He don't have to go anywhere he don't wanna go. (Unless, maybe the S.T.O.U. Address.)

He don't have to eat broccoli either.

He's P.O.T.U.S. for crissakes! LOL!

Is it raining again? Or does cadet bone spurs have a pressing golf game to attend? Any serving defence person or veteran that still supports this draft dodging coward needs to have their brains checked.

Rumors are Trump has gone/is going through some sort of mega melt down or mental health crisis. The WH covered him in Paris and is covering for him today in Washington as he is unable to perform his public duties as Commander-in-chief.

I heard that he suffers from syphilis. Given how he brags about how many women he has f*****d without a condom, it must be true. Would like to see the far right evangelicals defend this one.

I'm pretty sure Pence is in Asia that is why he did not go to Arlington


Great timing and scheduling eh. It's not like WH didn't know Veterans Day weekend was coming for sure and that the Trump Jong Un Parade was postponed indefinitely for sure. And that Trump would flee Washington to Europe to trash the United States. I love a parade yea but I don't get rainy day depressed and down in the dumps like Trump does when there isn't one. Pence in fact couldn't get any farther away from Washington than Asia on the other side of the planet.

Pence managed to show up at an NFL game in Indianapolis so he could walk out when some players took a knee respectfully during the anthem. This one is yet another Pence exit via aircraft. We recall Pence flew north and east to Indianapolis from Las Vegas, walked out in Indianapolis then flew west again to Los Angeles. I see a cuckoo's nest in here if not several of 'em.

The sick, lame and lazy as my gruff platoon SFC used to say each morning at reveille. We see now that has always included Trump.

The Right Whinge is spurring Trump on in this one too.

It is custom, tradition, the expectation, Potus goes to Arlington National Cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknowns on Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Minimum. Potus often stops at a section going in and going out to walk among the headstones, as we see in scrolling that Obama did and as every Potus does. Not Trump.

Trump wanted his parade which is all that mattered to the brat. We recall it was the Pentagon that busted up Trump's wet dream spectacular with the $100 million price tag. So now it's Trump's payback time. This pretty much finishes any working relations that might have remained between Trump and the Pentagon. It is a huge insult to all who have worn the uniform from Day One of the USA. Now we have irreconcilable differences.
