Imagine if Hillary Clinton was President. *Shudder*. Preemptive war, regime change, a huge increase in Federal government spending, mass immigration and amnesty, socialized health care and education, a crackdown on Second Amendment rights. All anti-American policies. Little wonder then that Hillary still exudes everyday anti-Americanism, the latest example being heaping praise on a little girl who decided to ‘take a knee’ during a pledge of allegiance.
“Keep up the good work,” Hillary proudly told 11-year-old Mariana Taylor, who decided, for no apparent reason, to kneel during a pledge of allegiance, and was disciplined by a teacher.
It takes courage to exercise your right to protest injustice, especially when you’re 11! Keep up the good work Mariana. https://t.co/vnGheuWyJ0

The issue here is not that a child expressed protest, but that there is no actual legitimate reason that this girl should kneel during the pledge.
The Washington Post reported back in May that Mariana choose to kneel because she has “strong beliefs about racial injustice, sexism, gay rights and President Trump’s proposed wall at the Mexico border.”

OK, so she is mimicking the rabid leftists and anti-Trumpers who have declared ad-nauseum that Trump is a racist, misogynistic demon king.
No wonder Hillary jumped on board.
Imagine if the US had a President who actually applauds when people refuse to stand to pledge allegiance to the flag. Isn’t the country divided enough already?
Thank God you're not President.

You will stand at attention and honor the anthem and our flag. Countless men and women have fought for our nation defending freedom and you will respect and honor the Fallen and our nation and the flag. There is no debate nor is there any discussion.

And this is why I'm thankful that you are not our president! #MAGA

Hillary’s comments dovetail with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo declaring that ‘America was never that great to begin with’.
“We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged.” Cuomo continued.
He then contextualized the comments around gender and women’s equality, declaring “We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping of women, 51% of our population, is gone, and every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed and every woman is making her full contribution.”
In response, Lara Trump, Senior Advisor to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. and Trump’s daughter in-law issued a statement exclaiming that Cuomo “defamed America” with the comments.
“Today, Andrew Cuomo showed his true, pessimistic colors when he defamed America as a country that was ‘never that great,’” Trump noted.
She added: “President Trump is leading us on the path to greatness like we’ve never seen before, with a booming economy that’s creating millions of jobs, record unemployment and wage growth, the lowest female unemployment in 65 years; as well as new paths to peace, and so much more. Donald Trump’s eternal optimism about America is what people value in a leader committed to delivering real solutions for our country.”
Cuomo’s outburst prompted President Trump to speculate that the governor is having a “total meltdown!”
“WE’RE NOT GOING TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, IT WAS NEVER THAT GREAT.” Can you believe this is the Governor of the Highest Taxed State in the U.S., Andrew Cuomo, having a total meltdown!

Cuomo responded by insinuating Trump wanted the KKK to make a come back:
.@RealDonaldTrump: What you say would be 'great again' would not be great at all…We will not go back to discrimination, segregation, sexism, isolationism, racism or the KKK.

Hillary’s praise for the girl was discussed on Lou Dobbs’ broadcast Wednesday evening, with Judge Pirro describing it as “despicable”. The panel also touched on Cuomo’s comments and the left’s increasing anti-Americanism:
#RespectAmerica– @JudgeJeanine: It is very damaging for Cuomo & Hillary to not respect our flag or anthem. It’s a despicable move toward the Left, to socialism. Keep moving ladies & gentlemen because you’re going to move right off the political spectrum. #MAGA #TrumpTrain #Dobbs pic.twitter.com/ztjMmOniGT
