The editor-at-large of the soon-to-be defunct Weekly Standard attacked President Donald J. Trump for praising students of the Naval Academy and West Point in a Sunday morning Tweet.
“If you genuinely respect those who serve and have served in the U.S. military, you’re repulsed by Trump’s fanboy military cheerleading. The kids playing in the Army-Navy game are impressive young men. As they’d be the first to say, they’re not ‘heroes.’ Trump cheapens everything,” said Trump-hating curmudgeon Bill Kristol.
Trump had sent an earlier Tweet calling it an “honor” to attend the annual Army/Navy football game, and calling the players, who are U.S. Servicemen, “heroes.” According to Kristol, who is blinded by disdain for Trump, they are not.
Kristol’s comment drew the ire of political commentators and other sane Twitter users.
“Imagine being so deranged by hatred of Trump that you feel compelled to attack him for praising those who attend the nation’s military service academies,” said Sean Davis, co-founder of The Federalist.
“I was there-tremendous cheers for him only surpassed by cheers for Sec Mattis. The reception he received surely didn’t fit your sour narrative,” said a user called @drspigot.

Kristol has been a Trump critic since he announced his candidacy for president, likely a cause of the downfall of his once-respected news magazine. Kristol, whose main beef with Trump is that he does not view the 45th President as a “true conservative,” recently founded a “conservative” non-profit called “Republicans for the Rule of Law,” which is funded by a leftist billionaire.
All in a days work for Kristol, who might consider packing it in before he forever tarnishes what is left of his legacy.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
