(Republican Insider) – So apparently Vice President Kamala Harris doesn’t have much respect for the United States military, because unlike former Vice President Pence and even Joe Biden while he was serving in the office, she doesn’t salute them when she arrives or steps off of Air Force Two.
According to Gateway Pundit, in one video, Harris is more focused on fluffing out her hair than showing respect to the men and women who serve this nation in the armed forces. This just goes to show you how self-absorbed Harris really is and is just one more reason to add to the list that exists for why she should not be the vice president.
There isn’t really a set in stone protocol for the president and vice president saluting the military, but former President Ronald Reagan set the precedent of saluting to the officers stationed at the steps of Marine One and Air Force One. Since then, every president has followed suit, including Barack Obama, though sometimes his salutes were awkward due to holding his coffee cup.
Here’s a video of Harris arriving in Jacksonville:
Here’s another one taken after her joint visit to Atlanta with President Biden:

We think you get the picture.
How can this woman be so calloused and self-obsessed? It takes a special kind of egomaniac to actually get so carried away with your political power and clout that you don’t even both to show respect to the warriors protecting you and the country from terrorists who want to annihilate our way of life.
Many members of the armed forces give their lives for the cause of liberty. They make the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our way of life. The least Harris could do is salute them. That’s not really asking for a whole lot. Is this just a slip in protocol or does it delineate a deep hatred for our military? That’s the question Harris needs to answer sincerely.
If Obama, the most progressive president we’ve ever had, can show respect to the military, then it should be no problem for Harris to start doing it. She won’t do it, of course, but it’s definitely worth thinking about.
Be sure to thank a veteran for their service to our country.
