I am with Mcgentrix on this one. Probably the playing of this fairly common military song was a coincidence. Maybe Trump was trolling liberals with this song intentionally.
Either way, this narrative will get liberals to froth at the mouth jumping up and down. But the far left doesn't need any more reasons to do that.
This story has no relevance as far as reaching out to middle American voters or in changing anyone's mind. It is just more outrage porn.
THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY THE PLAYING OF GARRYOWEN (a song I play at least once a week as an inspirational piece) WAS A COINCIDENCE.
Not sure what was being said or by whom...but there was a purpose and a message.
I hope the decision was made by a military person...and meant to embarrass the moron-in-Chief. If so, it was neat.
More likely, one of Trump's underlings did it purposefully...as part of the standard Trump hate campaign.
Trump is FAR TOO STUPID to have picked it himself.
I expect at some point, he will say a variation on, "Who knew the song was associated with Custer."
By the way, my love of the song is one of the reasons Adam Vinatieri is my favorite NFL place kickers...even though he never played for my beloved GIANTS. His great great grandfather was the bandmaster for the Seventh Cavalry...and actually started out with Custer toward the Little Big Horn...but he and the band were sent back after leading the troops out of Fort Abraham Lincoln. Glad that happened, or the NFL would have been missing its best place kicker.
And, yeah...Custer sucked for killing so many native Americans.
