Obama Joke Calling Servicemen "Santa’s in Fatigues" Falls Flat
Whike speaking at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Wrightstown, New Jersey, Obama makes a sad and pathetic attempt to get into the holiday spirit while speaking to our service men and women.
He tries to show gratitude to them and then goes on to explain they are like “Santa’s in fatigues” because of how much they give back to the citizens of this country.
While I agree with the sentiment, it is just abhorrent when this president attempts to act like he cares for those over which he is the commander and chief.
Following his joke that fell completely flat, he goes in to say,
“Although I bet one of those C-130’s is a little more efficient then Santa’s sleigh.”
This was met with almost reluctant if not sarcastic laughter as to mock the president and shown the disdain the troops have for his lack of appreciation for what they do!
After all who could forget the coffee cup salute. Mr. Obama has it ever occurred to you that these men and women put their lives on the line for our safety and you take them for granted. Maybe it’s time you out down the coffee and show them the respect they deserve!
