    It is so inspiring to see THE PRESIDENT and First Lady honoring the heroes of Pearl Harbor. This was a personal visit for them and honors all military personnel. God Bless America and God Bless the USA!!!

  2. I kinda wish she was holding our flag instead of Draping it around her shoulders like that. Looks bad.

    He is and will be written in HISTORY as the BEST President of the United States of America!

    Always amazes me how many arseholes social media compels

    Only less than a year in….he’s looking at a 25A and Mueller is a long ways from done….he will be escorted from the people house in no time…we do NOT work for him, he works for US.

  6. Margaret Kaufman | November 4, 2017 at 3:41 pm |

    KAPU was the general consensus of Hawaii…Keep Out!

  7. I get what you’re saying, but to say “ he’s anointed by Jesus” is…well more than a stretch. Certainly God raises kings up and takes them down, but “anointing” Donald?… ehhhhh….not so sure. A ‘chosen vessel’ to carry out a portion of his plan or will for this time? I’d go with that.
    But like you, I too think he’s doing a great job and let’s hope it continues.

    We have a Pearl survivor living in our town. Still self sufficient. Great guy yet our school does not teach US history in full. stops at the civil war. Very sad.

  9. I have been there with my son when he was 18. and you the feeling you get in your heart when you step upon the memorial is awesome and sad at the same time. And to know that you are actually standing at the tips of the smoke stakes of those huge ships.
    If you love this country it brings you to tears. My son is 40 now and he still remembers how he felt that day.
    Our president and the beautiful first lady look great. I pray they have a safe trip.

    The First Lady Melania is so graceful looking….Even throwing flower petals she does it in a Classy Way!
    If we were to look up Class in the dictionary…….I believe we would see her picture.

    • Margaret Kaufman | November 4, 2017 at 3:47 pm |

      LOL, if you looked up nude model and a woman that married a man for his money you would find Melania there…Do you seriously think she would even give him a glance if he didn’t have money? LOL

    Why do conservatives love wearing our flag as clothing in direct violation of flag code. Yet if someone takes a silent knee during the anthem they stop watching football. You would think the wife of Pacific Command Leader would be alert to this.

    (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery.

    • Agree…but is that like a shaw to resemble the flag ,?either way it looks out of place.

      • GunTotingLib | November 4, 2017 at 12:15 pm |

        Actually you are right . By opening the image in a new tab and enlarging it it just looks like a rectangular flag. Considering the location, seems very disrespectful. The right would come unglued if a liberal had worn that to the Arizona

        • Shut up.

          • GunTotingLib | November 4, 2017 at 2:26 pm |

            Sorry, I will accept your hatred of our flag, disrespectful, SAD

          • manipulation tactics don’t work here, sorry to you.
            We love our flag here, will wear it, salute it, pledge to it, display it, as much and as often, and as many ways as we like.
            plus, it is a shawl, not an actual flag. Guys have no sense of fashion.

          • Margaret Kaufman | November 4, 2017 at 4:02 pm |

            Yet you don’t think you should actually follow the constitution…but you love the flag. Now that’s the real conundrum of the far right…they call themselves constitutionalist and can’t understand it…and then threaten Americans and swear they are Patriots.

          • My statement never mentioned anything about “Yet you don’t think you should actually follow the constitution” and never did I claim to be a “constitutionalist” and I have never made any threats to any Americans and swear I’m a “patriot”. I think your response is more aimed at other post as it is completely irrelevant to my single post above.
            Poor attempt at twisting and inserting inappropriate innuendos that have zero relevance to a statement made.
            troll city on this topic. Think I’ll sit back and watch the fun with a bowl of popcorn.
            Good day.

          • Where does the Constitution mention the flag?

          • GunTotingLib | November 4, 2017 at 6:36 pm |

            Wearing a flag as a garment is disrespectful

          • Stomping and burning it is just fine, right?

          • I. Forgot 2 | November 4, 2017 at 7:03 pm |

            Watch em Ted. They are removing my comments and leaving the trolls comments.

          • That is the mindset of the left. Fools, all of them.

          • GunTotingLib | November 5, 2017 at 1:21 pm |

            Nope ,that is even more disrespectful and just like wearing a flag as a garment, it would be a constitutionally protected freedom of speech and protest and general freedom . People who love our flag would never step on it, burn it or wear it as a garment. All different levels of disrespect but still disrespectful and still protected.

            And while a few misguided folks will disrespect the flag,I know no one of consequence who thinks “Stomping and burning it is just fine”…Just people who think the constitution, freedom and liberty are great, even when it protects disrespectful actions of others.

          • Margaret Kaufman | November 4, 2017 at 3:59 pm |

            LOL, shut up? Really? That’s hilarious.

          • Yes Margaret…really. I have heard enough mindless dribble from left-wing nuts.

          • We all have.

    • If you are a lib toting a gun then you are probably a criminal.

      • GunTotingLib | November 4, 2017 at 2:24 pm |

        And if you think that you are just another easily lied to low information idiot

        • I. Forgot 2 | November 4, 2017 at 3:28 pm |

          You were born stupid and never changed. You will die stupid too. All you libtards are the same.

          • Margaret Kaufman | November 4, 2017 at 3:58 pm |

            So pointing out actual facts drives you to name calling? LOL, I see that is the Trump mentality for sure…glad to know there are so few of you folks in the country. Easy out.

          • I. Forgot 2 | November 4, 2017 at 4:19 pm |

            What facts? The fact that all you libtards are the same? I pointed that out.

    • gotitrightofcourse | November 4, 2017 at 3:28 pm |

      If you look up the rules you will see that if worn properly the flag may be worn on a lapel.

    • Margaret Kaufman | November 4, 2017 at 3:55 pm |

      In always ask that too…and then have napkins and toilet paper also to wipe both orifices….highly disrespectful.

  12. Perfect place for our disaster President — the site of our country’s biggest defense failure.

  13. landy fincannon | November 4, 2017 at 9:13 am |

    Ask yourselves, why were ALL the Aircraft Carriers out to sea circled wings in?

    The Japanes code had been broken 5 months prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor.

    Ham radio operators all up down the West Coast reported hearing radio messages on the day of the attack. Contradicting the Japanes claim that radio silence was enacted.

    On a side note.
    Not many know that Germany took out full page ads in ALL the NYC papers warning Americans not to sail the Lusitania

    • Certainly true. However, I recall decades back in a history book with a chapter on WWII that one of those advertisements was on a picture of a newspaper with a news boy hawking it.

      • landy fincannon | November 4, 2017 at 10:19 am |

        I wish I could send you a link.
        Years ago some overlooked classified files were released where FDR admitted that he wsnted to force Japan’s hand through sanctions to attack PH

    • CASSY IS SASSY | November 4, 2017 at 11:30 am |

      The persons that were in charge……..REALLY effffed up!
      Such a waste of human life……I’ve been to Hawaii and visited the USS Arizona Memorial.
      It was beautiful……..But eerie at the same time. I was standing above 2,300 Spirits : (
      Tears were running down my eyes while I was there.

      • landy fincannon | November 4, 2017 at 11:37 am |

        It breaks my heart to hear the horror stories told by men with tears streaming done their faces.

        To know that men like Prescott Bush and the rest of the crony-capitalist were profiting of their misery

      • Agreed. If the people working the radar that infamous day would NOT have assumed it was the fresh stock of airplanes the navy ordered the casualties would not have been so bad. If the liberals stop assuming everything hitlery and CNN has said is true only then can mending begin.

  14. JaySands1234 | November 4, 2017 at 9:11 am |

    I was there a few years ago you can feel the tragedy and there is also a sense of great reverence in this memorial.

  15. Thank you.

  16. joyfulgiver | November 4, 2017 at 8:53 am |

    For the record, OANN, those are plumeria the President and First Lady are throwing into the water, Hawaii’s national flower, not flower petals (with a “t”), just sayin’ ;o)

    • Yup.. Also when people write “Metals” instead of “Medals”.Oh.. and “your” and not “You’re”.

  17. Thank God for a president that respects the cost of freedom. Some would say Obama should be at the bottom of that harbor, but it would be an offense and disgrace to the men already there.

  18. Margaret Keller | November 4, 2017 at 7:50 am |

    The US sailors are in my prayers always

  19. Tony Anthony | November 4, 2017 at 7:50 am |

    I do wish OANN would give more details in their stories, but I think a picture says a 1000 words.. They do look very presidential, and to have a first lady with such dignity and good looks, says a lot.

    • I think their reporting will improve over time –

      I’m still ecstatic over them ditching rueters for their stories source – OAN using a left biased source just didn’t sit well with me……

      • Margaret Kaufman | November 4, 2017 at 3:45 pm |

        Must not have a source that is not right winged…oh the fear of objective reporting! You do know that Reuters is not an American news source?

        • Pathetic puppy troll yapping nonsensically & now gets Blocked!

          Blocking is your friend & sooo EZ to do….

    • HERE to ETERNITY | November 4, 2017 at 11:04 am |

      I’d do er

    • GunTotingLib | November 4, 2017 at 11:18 am |

      Yes the first lady with such dignity and good looks is a long way from her start as porographic model

    • CASSY IS SASSY | November 4, 2017 at 11:23 am |

      I hear ya…….But sometimes…I think LESS is MORE.
      I also noticed on other site…most of the commenters…Don’t even read the whole story, Where here on One American News Network…..they can’t use that as an excuse for their stupid comments! : )
      And YES, I know this Presidential couple is going to go down in History as two amazing persons!

    • I second that..

    • Margaret Kaufman | November 4, 2017 at 3:43 pm |

      That she was a nude model and managed to copy Michelle Obama’s speech, not to mention had to redo her resume because she lied? I guess that makes one have “dignity” and says a lot of what?

  20. Margaret Keller | November 4, 2017 at 7:50 am |

    I think it great that the president and First Lady visited Pearl Harbor

    • Margaret Kaufman | November 4, 2017 at 3:51 pm |

      Well the Hawaiians did not think so….and then delaying his trip to visit his hotel…that should show the Japanese that he doesn’t care what their schedule is…it’s all about his interests, that he’s supposed to have no interests in while in office…but hey, this man thinks YOU work for him.

      • When was any President on time for anything. If every President was on time , someone would plan to shoot them or blow the up at that set time. Even the fricking Speeches they give never start on time for tv.
