Let me be blunt. The United States military is not a voting bloc. It’s not a MAGA rally crowd. It’s not a plaything, and it’s most certainly not an arm of the Republican Party. Our troops, of course, must obey the orders of the commander in chief. They execute the military policy he sets forth. But their loyalty belongs to the American people and to the Constitution.

The United States military is not a prop or a voting bloc, writes John Kirby. It’s not a MAGA rally crowd. It’s not a plaything, and it’s most certainly not an arm of the Republican party. If he can’t bolster the troops with a visit like Bush and Obama did, he should stay home.
