Guam Rep. Michael San Nicolas (D-Guam) was slammed for using the Guam national guard members as political fodder after he attempted to embarrass Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
San Nicolas, who is a Democrat, led uniformed National Guard members from the island of Guam to Rep. Greene’s congressional office following her gaffe in which she mistakingly called Guam a foreign country during a speech.
One would think Rep. San Nicolas would shy away from political stunts like this being he is currently under investigation by the House Ethics Committee after being accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with a woman on his congressional staff
But nevertheless, watch Guam Rep. Michael San Nicolas make a fool of himself:

Guam Rep. Michael San Nicolas Was Outraged…Two Weeks After The Fact
On February 27, Rep. Greene accidentally said that Guam was not a part of the United States, although it is not officially a U.S. state. it is an unincorporated U.S. territory.
“I’m a regular, normal person. And I wanted to take my regular – normal person, normal, everyday American values, which is: We love our country. We believe our hard-earned tax dollars should just go for America – not for what, China, Russia, the Middle East, Guam – whatever, wherever.”
Typical Democrat Hypocrisy
It’s simply amazing how often the Democrats seem to go out of their way to prove what political hypocrites they’re.
Back in December 2018, Democrats and their mainstream media cohorts’ were outraged after seeing a video showing then-President Donald Trump signing red “Make America Great Again” hats for troops in Iraq.
Of course, fake news media liberal pundits disguised as ‘unbiased journalists’ pounced.
The Trump-hating media accused Trump of politicizing his visit to the troops by signing MAGA hats that Trump had brought with him.
Needless to say, they presented no evidence that Trump brought along the hats.
CNN reporter Barbara Starr immediately took to the air whining ‘What commander would allow this to happen?’
Starr was quick to inform the Clown News Networks handful of viewers:
“This is very much against military policy and regulation.
Troops are not supposed to be involved in political activities; the U.S. military is not a political force.”
Of course, being this was CNN and whenever it comes to reporting on Trump, they’re both right and wrong.
Right about the DOD rules:
“Under DOD Directive 1344.10, members of the armed forces who are on active duty are NOT permitted to express their personal opinions on political candidates, make a monetary contribution to a campaign, sign a petition to place a candidate’s name on the ballot, and attend a political event as a spectator,”
The Department of Defense regulations state. “Members on active duty may not participate in partisan activities such as soliciting or engaging in partisan fundraiser activities, serving as the sponsor of a partisan club, or speaking before a partisan gathering. In addition, all military members, including National Guard and Reserve forces, are prohibited from wearing military uniforms at political campaign events.”
Wrong On Supposed Trump Facts:
Unfortunately, CNN’s Barabra Starr and the Trump-Hate media as a whole, reported their ‘Feelings’ rather than ‘Facts’.
The hats that Starr and her media cohorts claimed Trump brought with him, were in fact hats that these military personal owned.
So asking Trump to sign their personal items does NOT violate DOD Directive 1344.10.
To be fair: While it wasn’t a technical violation of any DOD rules, military personal in uniform asking any politician to sign political memorabilia is nevertheless unhelpful to the US military’s goal of being nonpartisan.
But since the media didn’t report the story this way, it was simply more of the fake news media’s Trump-hate cannon fodder reporting.
Guam National Guard Members 100% Violated DOD Directive 1344.10.
The National Guard troops from Guam who took part in Democrat Rep. Michael San Nicolas showboating idiocy clearly violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice regulations against wearing the uniform and engaging in political activities.
Only time will tell what, if any, punishment these soldiers will face for willingly being part of San Nicolas’ political spectacle.
Unfortunately, military personal spewing their political beliefs has recently become an almost daily occurrence under the Biden administration.
In recent weeks a number of U.S. military officers and accounts have violated DOD prohibitions on political activities, including attacking Fox News host Tucker Carlson for his constitutionally protected opinions.
Four-star Army General Mark Funk, Commanding General Patrick Donahue, and the U.S. Marines’ Twitter account all issued statements on Twitter critical of Carlson.
The Marines’ account deleted the tweets shortly after Senator Ted Cruz demanded a meeting to discuss the matter with the Marines Commandant.
Under Biden, the military is launching political attacks to intimidate Tucker Carlson & other civilians who criticize their policy decisions.
Officials in uniform are being used for the campaign.

If you weren’t aware of what started the woke military Generals to lose thier minds and attack Tucker Carlson, here is the video that made their heads explaode:
