"Trump Cites "Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day" Law to Order Flags Flown at Half-Staff 
for Billy Graham"

Friday, March 2, 2018

This is one for the "you just can't make this sh*t up" file.

In addition to issuing the proclamation found on the whitehouse.gov website ordering flags to be flown at half-staff at all government buildings in remembrance of Billy Graham (which is bad enough), Trump also issued an extra special version of this order to the military.

The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) received an email from someone with the text of what was found in inboxes across the military, which reads:

1. AT THE DIRECTION OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND IN ACCORDANCE WITH U.S. CODE, TITLE 36, SECTION 129, THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES SHALL BE FLOWN AT HALF-STAFF ON FRIDAY, MARCH 2, 2018, AS A MARK OF RESPECT FOR THE MEMORY OF REVEREND BILLY GRAHAM.

2. THE FLAG SHALL BE FLOWN AT HALF-STAFF ON ALL DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE BUILDINGS, GROUNDS, AND NAVAL VESSELS THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES AND ABROAD.

What's wrong with this order (besides the fact that our entire military is being ordered to honor a fundamentalist evangelical Christian religious figure)?

Well, if you look at the text, you'll see that the law that Trump cites for issuing this order is Title 36, Section 129 of the U.S. Code.

And what is Title 36, Section 129 of the U.S. Code?

It's a law recognizing "National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day!"

Yes, our moron-in-chief just ordered our military to honor Billy Graham by the authority vested in him by a "National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day" law!

Surely, this is a day that SHOULD live in infamy!
