(RepublicanNews.org) – The Washington political scene is filled with unspoken rules. While some, like former President Donald Trump, march to the beat of their own drums, few can get away with bending the norms too much. However, Kamala Harris’ latest stunt steps beyond the pale of setting a new standard — it’s outright insulting.
Former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik posted a clip of Harris refusing to return the salute of honor guards while boarding Air Force Two on March 22.
DISGRACEFUL: @VP Kamala Harris refuses to salute the honor guard at the steps of the aircraft. It is a clear demonstration of her dislike for those in uniform, both law-enforcement and military. pic.twitter.com/7QFHzamnt7

Ronald Reagan set the precedent of returning salutes rendered by US armed services personnel, and Fox News confirmed that both presidents and vice presidents have honored that tradition. However, it appears that Harris consistently refuses to respect that standard.
After reviewing several recent videos, Fox News reported that Harris did not return honor guard salutes on March 15, 16, and 22.
As Turning Point USA founder and president Charlie Kirk noted, Harris and Biden tried to “sell the lie” that Donald Trump didn’t support the troops. Harris apparently can’t muster up the energy or respect to honor tradition and show basic respect to her honor guard members.
