Trump Made Surprise Visit To Afghanistan To Spend Thanksgiving With The Troops

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of David Harris Jr.

A leftist social media celebrity on Twitter with around 111 thousand followers, responded to a Thanksgiving tweet by our Commander-in-Chief, President Donald Trump, just a few minutes after the president’s well wishes for a happy and blessed Thanksgiving at 8:21 a.m.

The TDS-suffering loon responded to Trump’s Thanksgiving message with a photo of President Obama serving food for Thanksgiving one year while he was president with the blurb, “This is what a real president did on Thanksgiving:”

It’s sad, and a little psychotic, that hate-filled leftists can’t even give it a rest on Thanksgiving.

I responded this morning by asking him if he was born this stupid, or did have to work really hard at it.

It is no easy task sneaking the most recognized man in the world out of Florida and into a war zone 8,000 miles away, but even so, President Donald Trump made a surprise visit to Afghanistan to address US troops on Thanksgiving Day.

Unlike Obama, who constantly looked for accolades in everything he did, the Trump White House went to great lengths to keep the president’s first trip to Afghanistan a secret, even confiscating cellphones and other transmitting devices from pool reporters.  They must have loved that.

The president arrived at Bagram Air Field around 8:30 p.m. local time and stayed about two-and-a-half hours in the war-ravaged country hanging out with the troops. The media was under “strict instructions” to keep the visit under wraps for security reasons, CBS News reports.

I wouldn’t have trusted them.  They have reported every leak that has come from the Deep State Resistance in their never-ending effort to trash this president. I wouldn’t have had any of the Fake News media there.  If nothing else, I would have only invited the honest reporters among the Fake News networks, but it probably would have been a fruitless effort to find some.

From Breitbart:

Daniel Scavino Jr., the White House’s Director of Social Media, tweeted a pair of videos of the president’s arrival at the military base and his introduction for his speech before the troops.

Before his speech, President Trump and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley served turkey to around two dozen troops at a dining area covered with Thanksgiving-themed decorations.

“There’s nowhere I’d rather spend Thanksgiving than with the toughest, fiercest warriors,” the president said in his remarks. “I’m here to say Happy Thanksgiving and thank you very much. As president of the United States, I have no higher honor than serving as commander-in-chief.”

“We will continue to work tirelessly for the day when all of you can go home to your families, and that day is coming very soon,” he added.

While Trump was at Mar-a-Lago Wednesday night, a small group of Washington reporters were told to meet atop a parking garage and then driven in black vans to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.

From The New York Post:

Around the same time, Trump was quietly flying back from Florida, where members of the media had been told he’d be celebrating Thanksgiving at his Mar-a-Lago home.

The plane he had taken to Florida Tuesday — a modified 747 sporting the iconic blue-and-white colors of Air Force One — remained parked on the West Palm Beach Airport tarmac to help keep Trump’s whereabouts under wraps.

The White House added to the secrecy by sending out Thanksgiving-themed tweets from the president’s account to avoid suspicion that he had gone silent.

Accompanying President Trump was acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, national security adviser Robert O’Brien, Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), and White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.

Here’s the president laughing with troops who seem to not be able to get enough of their Commander-in-Chief:

Here’s a real president serving up Thanksgiving dinner to the troops in the middle of a war zone:

Here’s a very popular Commander-in-Chief posing for photos with his troops in Afghanistan.

The White House confirmed the president’s trip had been planned for weeks, and the secret shenanigans were necessary after Trump’s cover was blown last year when Air Force One was spotted heading to Iraq by someone who spotted the president’s plane.

  2. This article is erroneous at the very least. President Obama has served the poor for years and years, and has NEVER attempted to garner accolades for his many humanitarian acts. Never. President Obama and the former first lady have just been good stewards for ALL the citizens, but especially those less fortunate. President Obama also visited troops throughout the world – he didn’t wait until his re-election bid to do so.
