The Flag and the Law

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 29, 2018

NOTHING ESCAPES THE TRUMP HATERS, NOT EVEN HOW THE AMERICAN FLAG IS FLOWN AFTER THE DEATH OF SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN.

THE CRITICS COMPLAINED WHEN THE PRESIDENT ORDERED THE FLAG LOWERED TO HALF STAFF FOR ONLY TWO DAYS FOLLOWING MCCAIN’S DEATH. THEY IGNORED THE LAW, WHICH LISTS THE POSITIONING OF THE FLAG WHEN THE DEATH OF AN OFFICIAL OCCURS – 30 DAYS FOR A PRESIDENT, OR FORMER PRESIDENT AND FEWER DAYS FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICES AND OTHERS OF NOTE. THE LAW SAYS FOR A MEMBER OF CONGRESS THE FLAG IS FLOWN AT HALF STAFF FOR TWO DAYSTWO DAYS.

WHY PAY ATTENTION TO THE LAW WHEN THOSE WHO WANT TO REVERSE THE RESULT OF THE 2016 ELECTION CAN ADD INSENSITIVITY TO THEIR GROWING LIST OF INDICTMENTS AGAINST THE PRESIDENT?

TRUMP AND HIS SON IN LAW HAVE NEGOTIATED A BETTER TRADE DEAL WITH MEXICO WHICH, IF APPROVED BY CONGRESS, SHOULD BENEFIT AMERICA AND MEXICO, UNLIKE THE ONE-SIDED NAFTA DEAL. AND NOW CANADA’S FOREIGN MINISTER IS COMING TO WASHINGTON TO SEE IF HER COUNTRY CAN BE PART OF THE NEW DEAL.

THAT LOOKS LIKE PROGRESS AND SUCCESS TO ME, BUT ALL THE TRUMP HATERS WANT TO FOCUS ON IS THE FLAG AND SUPPOSED RUSSIAN COLLUSION. THEY’RE LOSING AND DON’T REALIZE IT. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE WINNING AND DO REALIZE IT. I’M CAL THOMAS.
