Given that the Commander in Chief has utterly debased civic society with his unrelenting vulgarity, compulsive infantile lying, shameful attacks on those who can’t defend themselves, and so much more, it seems odd to object to a soldier asking to be addressed by his rank. He didn’t scream or bluster or threaten, he didn’t lie or insult everyone around him. Objecting to his little display of ego is like complaining about a neighbor’s dog walking on your lawn while your house is being torched by the village idiot. In other words, the lack of perspective is somewhat surprising.
