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

That's how my dad always said it to.

The president is the Commander and Chief "supreme operational command and control of a nation's military forces"

I don't know goose, don't you think draft dodgers know what they're talking about Grin

I don't agree with him saying it (If I cared), but he's in charge. He tells the generals what to do with their troops. I just don't think its a big deal.
Its Trump.

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

Bothers me tremendously.


Then go seek professional consoling.

No, he was expected to have good generals to advise him and does. Plus, while someone might be of the opinion he's not. There's really no evidence that Trump is not listening to them. But I suspect you already know that anyway, and just laying a line of sh*t on people here.

During the same speech he said "We are so proud of our military"

He said "My military" after being asked if he authorized it. He wants to make sure he receives a good amount of the credit.

I'm glad a scientist, who knows more than anyone because of his education started this thread. Otherwise, I would think of it as a troll.

I was once on a forum infested with trolls. How often do they appear here?

They are his military ass hole. He is the commander in chief. And the business man knows how to have board meetings with all the best suited for whatever problem must be solved. He knows he is not a 5 star general, but he knows enough to be informed by many generals and come up with a good solution.  Nothing like Obama, his way or the highway. The worst president ever. He made Jimmy Carter happy. Now he is the second worst ever.
