President Trump catches a lot of flack from folks all across the political spectrum, and sometimes, on a rare occasion, a little rebuke might be necessary, as it always is with a man as fiery and passionate as The Donald.
Most of the time, however, he seems to get a pretty bad rap from the mainstream media and wingnut celebrities in Hollywood, people simply salty that for the first time in eight years, their team got a spanking from the American people. Rather than learning from that experience, they continue to throw a hissy fit, all but guaranteeing the continued rise of Trump and folks like him.
Well, for once, how about a little positive news about our Commander-in-Chief? Like what he did for a police officer that was injured during a motorcade crash for example.
Apparently, the president delayed Air Force One so he could call the injured officer and check on him. That’s much more class than that possessed by the former occupant of the White House.
From Fox News:
President Donald Trump delayed Air Force One’s departure from Indianapolis on Wednesday until after he was able to talk with a motorcycle officer who crashed in the motorcade to the airport.
Initial reports said Trump called the officer during the flight back to Washington, but the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police tweeted Thursday that the president delayed the flight.
“#BREAKING: Thank you @Potus for delaying wheels up to speak with injured Officer Turner. #ThankYou,” the tweet read.

Robert Turner, a police officer from Indianapolis, broke an ankle in the fall on Interstate 70. A photographer captured the officer on the ground with his uniform ripped.
Police released a cellphone video of Turner in the hospital taking the call from the president. He was wearing a neck brace, but laughed and appeared to be in good spirits.
The White House initially said Trump called during the flight back to Washington to check on the officer’s condition and thank him for his service.
Isn’t that just awesome? Real respect for police officers, from an elected official, the president no less? Get out of town!
What a contrast between Trump’s leadership and that of the former president’s. Obama often insulted cops or remained silent — see what I did there? — when they were under attack, all in the name of preserving the racially divisive narrative being pumped out by the media in order to help his party retain as much power as possible.
It’s refreshing to see an elected official show some respect for the brave souls who risk their lives daily to protect us from criminals and ensure we remain free to live our lives in as much peace as possible.
It’s not been an easy couple of years to be in uniform, thanks to Obama and many others in the Democratic Party, in conjunction with Black Lives Matter, making police officers a favorite target for violent criminals.
Here’s to hoping that Trump’s example is one that is emulated all across the country, reminding our local law enforcement officers we care about them and are thankful for the work they are doing.
