Trump Derangement Syndrome is now a Category 1 epidemic at CNN. Smilin’ Jim Acosta and Barbara Starr – who both totes love our servicemen and women – questioned whether soldiers who asked for MAGA hats to be signed by the commander-in-chief should be charged with violating the Hatch Act.
This was a serious discussion conducted by two wholly unserious people.
During Wednesday’s edition of The Situation Room, fill-in host and chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, seemingly under the assumption Trump was handing out the hats, wanted Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr to tear into the President for turning the trip into a “campaign stop.”
Starr informed Acosta that reports said it was the troops who showed up with the hats. “We will have to see if that actually proves to be the case. The question is, if they brought them or if the President brought them; what commander allowed that to really happen,” Starr continued in a huff.
Seemingly eager to tattle on those brave soldiers, Starr wasn’t very happy they were carrying Trump campaign material:
Because this is very much against military policy and regulation. Troops are not supposed to be involved in political activities. The U.S. military is not a political force. And there’s no question, the saying “Trump 2020” and “Make America Great Again,” those are political slogans of a Trump campaign they are not governmental sayings, to say the least.
Now remember, the media loves our troops and is not in any way the enemy of the American people.
Dan Bongino mentioned this on last night’s Mark Levin Show, and he has a point; anyone who puts their life on the line by protecting this country should be able to wear whatever they damned well please.

Original Caption: The Clinton White House was adorned with plenty of edible decorations. Over the course of several years, the Clinton’s enjoyed gingerbread house versions of the Washington Monument, Mount Vernon and even a replica of Hillary’s childhood home.
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford appreciates the sacrifices police officers make. So much so, he and his wife helped the family of a slain Detroit police corporal have a slightly brighter Christmas this year.
Corporal Jarrett was killed during a traffic stop by a hit-and-run driver on October 28, and the Detroit Police Department is making sure that Jarrett’s widow Sacha and their four kids are looked after, particularly during their first holiday season without Myron.
Stafford and his wife “adopted” the Jarett family for the holidays offering gifts and well-wishes to ease the pain of their loss. Stafford played Santa Claus and brought presents to the Jarrett home on Wednesday (the Lions’ schedule interfered with Christmas Day gift-giving).
Despite being a well-known football player, Sacha said, “Matthew Stafford and his wife are so sweet and he’s so down to earth. He’s such a regular guy. He came to my home, he seemed like he was very comfortable there, he communicated with my kids and I just appreciate what they did for my family this Christmas.”
I am now officially a Matthew Stafford fan. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have something in my eye.

Remember the reason for the season.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Have a safe and happy holiday!
