President Donald Trump rode Air Force One for the first time yesterday, but broke tradition by not turning around to wave as he boarded the plane.

Trump breaking tradition?! That never happens!

It’s not like he’s the first president in 40 years to not release his tax returns.

But I digress…

America’s new president boarded the plane like he was on a mission. He didn’t look back once.

This could be linked to the fact President Trump isn’t a big fan of the media — in fact, he recently said he’s “at war” with it — or maybe he just really DGAF.

Pres Trump boards Air Force One, but doesn't turn around to wave - as presidents have done for decades.

Trump boards Air Force One for the first time as POTUS for flight to Republican summit in Philadelphia - no wave

Perhaps Trump didn’t know this was a tradition.

It definitely wouldn’t be the first time he was completely unaware of what constitutes presidential behavior.

For some context, here are some pics of President Obama waving as he boarded Air Force One. WARNING: these may induce nostalgia and/or ugly crying.

This pic is actually from February 2009, shortly after Obama rode Air Force One for the first time.

But Trump just wasn’t into it.

He did wave when he stepped off the plane, though.

Pres Trump offers a wave and a thumbs up stepping of Air Force One on arrival in Philadelphia to address GOP Congressional Retreat.

And he seemed to enjoy his new ride.

But, to be honest, this issue of waving is a pretty silly thing to focus on.

Perhaps we should be more concerned about Trump’s executive orders and the marginalized groups he’s already targeted in his first week as president.

This isn’t the first time people have gotten mad at a president for not fully adhering to tradition while boarding or stepping off an aircraft.

Remember the controversy over Obama’s latte salute?

obamawhitehouse
President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014. Watch him speak at 12:50pm ET on his plan to #ActOnClimate: http://wh.gov/climate-change

Yeah, people weren’t happy about that, either.

If people got outraged like this about actual issues, we’d probably live in a far better world.

Long story short: We have bigger things to focus on than whether or not Trump waved as he stepped on an airplane.

Stay focused, America!

Are We Living In A Post-Fact America?

And these are people's opinions. "Get over it" too lol. Honestly though, is this your defense/rhetoric with Trump? So many people try to counter his actions by saying "He's President now, so get over it". Seems like there's no limit to what can (or can't lol) be done without utter acceptance and not a single second thought from most of his supporters...but I guess it's since, you know, the President. #NotOverIt

The 'real" America, eh? That means the 32% approval ratings he got coming into office during his honeymoon phase when ratings are at their highest? That means that the REAL 68% of Americans find him to be a narcissistic psychopath dictator owned by Putin who is doing everything to eradicate the Constitution of the US, to suppress free speech and free press and who is telling all his agencies that they can't talk to or give facts to the public or Congress. Of course if he was ruling any other country in the world, even you #AltReality people would recognize him as a dictator. Maybe you just can't see it because he hasn't ordered mass genocide --- yet.

Thanks for this very informative info, I'm glad the purpose is not to promote trolling. Yes, he's a president whom finds it more important to looking forward towards a goal, whereas to look back, what for seeing if someone is happy with his promises? I starting to question all.
