Hey, Trump supporters.

Watch this, please.

How does it not bother you that he called them 'his' military.

Bothers me tremendously. How many deaths are on his hands, and not even 100 days in office. Those deaths are on your hands, because you thought a businessman would make a good 5 star general.

I believe only one of our servicemen has died on the battlefield since Trump became President. What do you mean by "those deaths"?

As for the "my military," it is rather presumptuous. But then again, Obama said the same thing (or something very similar).

The United States Constitution gave the president the power of Commander and Chief of the military

When I was in the Marines and I commanded an infantry fire team, it was my fire team, and I referred to it that way.  The Marines in that squad were "my Marines".

Infantry Squad, same thing.  Infantry Platoon.  Same thing.  My company commanders always referred to the company they commanded as "my company".  Battalion commanders ditto, regimental commanders and division commanders, ditto x2.

The Commandant of the Marine Corps routinely talks about doing right by "my Marines". 

I like the fact that our commander and chief feels a personal connection to the overall military.  He should think of the military as his.  This personal connection will make him a better commander.

Now I know you can argue that he is just being possessive.  That is your right, but you have no proof of this. 

Basically this is just another blah blah blah, waah waaah waah, crapola complaint that has no merit nor does it have any impact, real or imagined. 

You might as well have a lively debate about whether he should be wearing tighty whities, boxers or go commando. 

Of all the real problems in the world to solve, you pick out the use of a pronoun

I just prefer to use the term "our." As in, "our military." Smiley

It looks like we have two choices. Impeach Trump or ban pronouns.
