Liberals Shamelessly Boo President Trump and Vice President Pence During Visit to MLK Memorial

By PoliZette Staff | January 20, 2020

On Monday President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence took a moment to pay their respects to Martin Luther King Jr. at the MLK Memorial in Washington, DC.

Trump and Pence stayed for about 30 seconds, according to CNN’s Daniel Dale.

The announced trip was just a few hours before Trump is set to depart the White House for a planned trip to Davos, Switzerland, where he’ll be attending the World Economic Forum.

Earlier Monday, counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway told reporters in the briefing room that Trump, “agrees with many of the things that Dr. Martin Luther King stood for and agreed with for many years, including unity and equality.”

Conway also suggested Martin Luther King Jr. would have opposed Trump’s impeachment, according to The Hill.

“When you see the articles of impeachment that came out, I don’t think it was within Dr. King’s vision to have Americans dragged through a process where the President is not going to be removed from office, is not being charged with bribery, extortion, high crimes or misdemeanors,” she said.

She continued, “And I think that anybody who cares about ‘and justice for all’ — today or any day of the year — will appreciate the fact that the President now will have a full throttle defense on the facts. And everybody should have that.”

According to the pool report, Trump was booed at the memorial, but also received some cheers and a few chants of U-S-A.

“A mixture of cheers and boos greeted President Trump and Vice President Pence as they arrived at the MLK Memorial at around 4:33 p.m.”

As Trump and Pence approached the memorial he smiled and waved at the crowd that had gathered. Both the President and Vice President stood at the base of the MLK sculpture for a minute with their heads bowed.

Some members of the crowd chanted “U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!”, while a few delivered sustained boos.

As we reported earlier, this day has been an occasion for cringeworthy editorials from the Left. Now they shamelessly boo a duly elected President on the hallowed ground. They criticize America, Trump, and of course conservatives, for the alleged continued oppression of black citizens and hold up an unrealistic racial utopia as the national goal.

While it is wonderful to have a day to honor Dr. King, it is somewhat ironic that a day honoring a man who preached racial harmony, who said in his most famous speech that he dreamed of a day when people would be judged on their character, not the color of their skin, is filled with such vitriol.
