President Trump and the first lady paid tribute to President George H.W. Bush at the Capitol Rotunda on Monday.
Why the salute? And last I checked the thumb doesn’t curl into the hand during a salute, inappropriate or not. Fail.

AirForce being sent for #GeorgeHWBush body, Bush’s staying at #BlairHouse is #protocol so @realDonaldTrump gets no kudos for that; His presence/salute at the Rotunda was theatrical at best he & @FLOTUS looked like they were at mandatory school play

Refresh my memory what branch of the military did he serve in to salute!

Watching trump surrounded by all the military personnel is so offensive. He doesn't deserve any hand salute.

The 45th President is not now, and never has been, in the military, so he's not supposed to salute anyone unless they salute him first. Which he would know if he actually gave a shit about anything other than himself.
