Kirsters Baish| Things are heating up on the Korean Peninsula as Pyongyang dictator Kim Jong Un keeps forcing his nuclear arms program to terrifying levels. But when it comes to the actual temperature, things are getting much colder as the Winter approaches rapidly. Not everyone in the Trump administration was prepared for the temperature drop on their visit to South Korea.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was definitely underdressed and unprepared for the cold weather while in South Korea. One of our men in uniform decided to step in and help her.
The U.K. Daily Mail reported that the temperature in South Korea was around 50 degrees when Sarah Huckabee Sanders made her way onto the tarmac at the Yongsan Garrison in Seoul. Her arrival came after a presidential trip to the demilitarized zone that separates North Korea and South Korea was canceled due to the heavy fog. Our White House Press Secretary seemed to have forgotten something… her jacket! She had her “arms crossed to conserve heat.” One reporter explained that she was shivering as soon as she stepped outside.
A United States soldier decided that he had to do something to help Sanders, so he decide to give up his Army Combat Uniform Jacket to keep her warm. While it didn’t exactly match her pearl necklace, it was obvious that the gesture was much appreciated.

This just goes to show just how respectful our men and women in uniform are of the Trump administration. A Public affairs official at U.S. Army Garrison Yongsan reported that this particular war hero was Chief Warrant Officer 2 Bobby Zizelman. Zizelman’s gesture was a highlight of the visit, because it showed just how chivalrous our men and women in uniform truly are. We needed this, especially after the disappointment following Trump’s surprise visit to the DMZ was canceled due to the heavy fog that had set in. This caused Marine One to turn around only five minutes prior to their anticipated landing.
Attempts to land during times of heavy fog have killed world leaders in the past, so the decision was definitely the right one. Of course, President Trump was disappointed, but he understood the reasoning.
She went on to say, “This did not work out as planned. The fog was not going to clear. It didn’t look like it was going to clear for another hour or so and the president had his speech that he can’t be late for, in large part because we have to depart on time as well for China.”
At least we were able to witness the good-hearted nature of our soldiers.
