    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!!!

  • Crazy_Jake

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

  • CASSY IS SASSY

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

  • HERE to ETERNITY

    Always amazes me how many arseholes social media compels

  • Margaret Kaufman

    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.

      LOLOL!!!! You clowns living in Libtardia are really amusing with your lunacy.

        It will never make it that far.

  • Margaret Kaufman

    KAPU was the general consensus of Hawaii…Keep Out!

  • Mike

    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.

  • gotitrightofcourse

    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.

  • Letmesay

    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.

    • CASSY IS SASSY

      Good Post! I feel ya.

  • CASSY IS SASSY

    God!!!
    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

      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

      • I. Forgot 2

        Not the brightest bulb in the house we see. smh

      • tedlv

        What a horrible person you are, to say something like that! How do you stand yourself?

        • Joe samo

          I am sure she can’t…maybe she the nude food stamp model and the gun toting lib criminal hang together.

          • I. Forgot 2

            You know it. They are both idiots.

      • Joe samo

        Well how about you Margaret…have you married anyone with money…or are you still cashing food stamp cards?

  • GunTotingLib

    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.

    176.
    (d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery.

    • Letmesay

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

      • GunTotingLib

        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

        • Joe samo

          Shut up.

          • GunTotingLib

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

          • Harly

            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

            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.

          • Harly

            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.

          • tedlv

            Where does the Constitution mention the flag?

          • GunTotingLib

            Wearing a flag as a garment is disrespectful

          • tedlv

            Stomping and burning it is just fine, right?

          • I. Forgot 2

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

          • I. Forgot 2

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

          • GunTotingLib

            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

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

          • Joe samo

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

          • I. Forgot 2

            We all have.

    • Joe samo

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

      • GunTotingLib

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

        • I. Forgot 2

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

          • Margaret Kaufman

            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

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

    • gotitrightofcourse

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

    • Margaret Kaufman

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

  • a non

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

    • I. Forgot 2

      A perfect place for you is the nut house. You have proven yourself stupid.

  • landy fincannon

    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

    • Larry Rymal

      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

        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

          Yes, He did…And he succeeded! The SOB!

    • CASSY IS SASSY

      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

        Indeed!
        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

      • Uncle Roddy

        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.

  • JaySands1234

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

  • Jed55

    Thank you.

  • joyfulgiver

    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)

    • Crazy_Jake

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

  • kaiju

    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.

    • Margaret Kaufman

      And that would just make you a total ass. In print. For all to read.

      • Joe samo

        Troll

      • kaiju

        Those men died for your freedom too. So go right ahead, support the first Muslim terrorist president and make a damn fool of yourself.

  • Margaret Keller

    The US sailors are in my prayers always

    • CASSY IS SASSY

      Yes….Mine also.

      • Crazy_Jake

        There are youtube videos of ceremonies that are done closed to the public for Pearl Harbor vets that pass away and have ashes placed in the memorial by Navy Divers.. touching to see it done.

        • CASSY IS SASSY

          Wow….I didn’t know that…Thank You. Good to know.

  • Tony Anthony

    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.

    • Big Al

      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

        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?

        • Big Al

          Pathetic puppy troll yapping nonsensically & now gets Blocked!

    • GunTotingLib

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

    • CASSY IS SASSY

      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!

    • Letmesay

      I second that..

    • Margaret Kaufman

      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?

      • Crazy_Jake

        And still better than the Obamas.

      • Stephen Chock

        You must be a clintonista/obamite. so sad

  • Margaret Keller

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

    • Margaret Kaufman

      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.

      • Crazy_Jake

        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.
