President Trump sat and talked through the nightly playing of "Retreat" as the American flag was lowered on a Pennsylvania Air National Guard base during his interview with Sean Hannity.

Trump, who has been criticizing NFL players who kneel through the national anthem to protest racism, seemed caught off-guard by loudspeakers playing "Retreat." The song is played every night at military bases to signal the American flag being lowered and the end of the official duty day.

Military site Task and Purpose was the first to notice Trump sitting during the song. According to Task and Purpose, uniformed service members are required to stop what they're doing and salute the flag as its lowered during the song while civilians are required to place their hand over their heart.

I guess I'll use Trump's own words, "Get that son of a bitch outta here!"

This is so ridiculous.   Someone was being cute at that base.  They OBVIOUSLY knew that the #1 person - the Commander In Chief - was on the base and some moonbat hit the recording of "Retreat" as he was speaking. 
Let me re-state this simply:
Everybody on that base knew that Trump was on the base doing an interview.
Nobody would be stupid enough to hit the recording of "Retreat" over the loudspeakers while Trump was inside giving an interview. 
It was an interruption of Trump that was a complete surprise to everyone. 
I looked it up, and they don't play "Retreat" at any specific time, someone screwed up - either intentionally or unintentionally. 

One more thing.. Presidents just don't casually show up in places.  Their movements are scheduled LONG before the actual event, and the locations are saturated with secret service and meticulously scouted to the most minute detail for at least days - if not weeks before the president arrives.   The most recent personal observation of what goes on was a visit about 2 years ago by failed president Obama to a college a mile away from my house.   They do all sorts of things, such as spot welding the manhole covers on the streets along the route of the motorcade.

So the question is whether an NFL player kneeling in protest during the National Anthem is one and the same with POTUS speaking during Retreat.

Not the same.

The protests are a willing disregard of the custom meant to shine a light on a cause they believe in. The President either didn't know he was expected to stand, or as the President isn't expected to stand and there is no hidden meaning. 
 
I get it. Some people hate Trump. Those that do will make false equivalencies. Unfortunately, all this does is pump up one side with faulty reasoning while making the other side come to Trump's defense. In other words, it's divisive.

It's not just that.. the POTUS was in the middle of an interview when he was interrupted by some idiot who played the "Retreat" recording.  That was no accident.

Possibly, but that's speculation.

One of my best friends from uni (now) believes in bigfoot. (sigh) We can mistake all kinds of things for causation and come to the wrong conclusions. Me? Just the facts. This kind of stuff is delicate and needs to stop.

Some of the bigfoot stuff is non-native orangutans that have gotten into the wild.  They were someone's pet or escaped from a zoo. 

As for Trump, the media seem to be ignoring the story of the interrupted interview... so it was just one moonbat report that one of our resident moonbats is hanging onto like a dingle berry.  The rest of the media are making up some other fake news.
