National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day was on Monday, a day and an opportunity to show the men and women in blue how much we value them, their service, and the risks they take to protect our communities.
If ever there were a more revealing contrast on how Republicans and Democrats feel about our men and women in the police force, this would be it.
The contrast couldn’t be clearer – look at the difference between how Trump honored our police and how Democrats treated them:

So what did Democrats do for National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day?
Not a whole lot according to the Gateway Pundit:
Obama’s Twitter Account:
Hillary’s Twitter Account:
In fact, Gateway Pundit claims to have analyzed over 50 social media accounts of prominent Democrats, not one of which even acknowledged appreciation for our police officers.
Worse, Democrats vowed to re-hang a controversial anti-police painting that had been hanging in the US Capitol building, but was taken down by a Republican Congressman who is a veteran.
The “art work” depicts police officers as pigs. The painting (seen below) had been put on display by Congressman William Lacy Clay, a Missouri Democrat.

Amazing that the Democrats decided to fight for this on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.
