President Trump on Thursday signed a proclamation designating National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, and hosted several veterans of the Pearl Harbor attack at the White House to mark the occasion.
One of the military veterans of the Japanese sneak attack on Dec. 7, 1941, that drew the U.S. into World War II described himself as “just a regular grunt in the service.”
Mr. Trump insisted the man was “a hero.”
“A regular grunt, I don’t think so,” said the president. “You’re not a regular anything. You’re a hero. All of you are heroes.”
Mr. Trump signed the proclamation in the Roosevelt Room surrounded by the five veterans, who were all in their 90s.
But the main event of the night came when Acosta asked if Trump had a reaction to Al Franken’s comments earlier in his resignation speech.
From The Daily Caller:
Acosta asked if Trump had a reaction to Al Franken’s comments earlier in his resignation speech, during which the outgoing Minnesota senator said there’s “irony in the fact” he is resigning while “a man who has bragged on tape about his history of sexual assault sits in the Oval Office.”
Acosta shouted this question to Trump as he exited the room with the Pearl Harbor veterans:
Any comment on Senator Al Franken? He made some comments about you earlier today.
Trump paused and with the strength of the Pearl Harbor veterans behind him, shut CNN down with four words:
I didn’t hear it. Sorry.
I asked POTUS about Al Franken’s comments about him a few moments ago. Trump’s response: “I didn’t hear it.”

This was a heartwarming ceremony involved some great commentary between Trump and the five veterans who survived the Japanese surprise attack. At the end of the ceremony, Trump invited the elderly men into the Oval Office.
