Trump visits Walter Reed

To remind the public of what a fine person he is and to create a distraction, Donald Trump visited Walter Reed military hospital to pin a purple heart on a wounded soldier who had been shot in Afghanistan.  His leg had been amputated.

The soldier was not caught smiling in the photos.  His wife, standing next to an uncomfortable looking Melania, did smile.  As Trump awarded the purple heart,  his words were "Congratulations... tremendous."  Trump's vocabulary is limited, but those words seemed out of place.  Thanks for the soldier's service in the military would have been more appropriate.  The photo was taken in front a windowed room that had memorabilia in it, most prominently a large photo of Trump.

One could surmise that Trump was thinking about himself, posing.
