The Vice President won’t take the time to honor brave men and women in uniform.
She’s changing tradition to suit her agenda.
Kamala Harris showed her hatred of the military with one revealing change.
Vice President Kamala Harris has come under fire for breaking with precedent and not taking a moment to salute the honor guard when boarding Air Force Two on Monday.
A video of the event shows her breezing past the honor guard and hurrying up the steps.
This wasn’t a one time occurrence, she didn’t salute the honor guard on her earlier trips aboard Air Force Two on both March 15 and 16, according to the Fox News report which broke the story.
“DISGRACEFUL: @VP Kamala Harris refuses to salute the honor guard at the steps of the aircraft. It is a clear demonstration of her dislike for those in uniform, both law-enforcement and military.” former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik wrote in a caption of the video posted to Twitter.
Both former Vice Presidents Mike Pence and Joe Biden made it a habit to return the honor guard salutes in the past when boarding or disembarking from Air Force Two.
The tradition started with President Ronald Reagan in 1981.
Regan explained the choice while meeting with military members stationed in Iceland.
“I can’t resist telling you a little story that I’ve just told the Marine guard at the Embassy. The story has to do with saluting. I was a second lieutenant of horse cavalry back in the World War II days. As I told the admiral, I wound up flying a desk for the Army Air Force. And so, I know all the rules about not saluting in civilian clothes and so forth, and when you should or shouldn’t. But then when I got this job and I would be approaching Air Force One or Marine One and those Marines would come to a salute and I – knowing that I am in civilian clothes – I would nod and say hello and think they could drop their hand, and they wouldn’t. They just stood there. So, one night over at the Marine Commandant’s quarters in Washington, and I was getting a couple of highballs, and I didn’t know what to do with them. So, I said to the Commandant, I said, ‘Look, I know all the rules about saluting in civilian clothes and all, but if I am the Commander in Chief, there ought to be a regulation that would permit me to return a salute.’ And I heard some words of wisdom. He said, ‘I think if you did, no one would say anything.’” Reagan said
