During the president's address to the 36th annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service outside the White House in Washington, D.C. on Monday, the president reached under the podium, revealing a personal cap, which he then tossed to a 6-year-old boy named Micah standing in the crowd.

Micah's police officer dad was killed during a gun battle in Phoenix, Arizona last year.

“To every child in America who has lost a mom or a dad in the line of duty, I want you to know your parents are American heroes — American heroes,” the president said. “They died keeping us safe. They are the pride of our nation. And we will hold them in our hearts always and forever. Their sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten.”

According to a new study, 135 police officers were killed in the line of duty in 2016 -- the highest number of police fatalities in five years.

“I want you to know that patriotic Americans of all backgrounds truly support and love our police,” the president said. “And a very sad thing is that many of today’s politicians don’t want to say that, don’t want to talk about that because it’s not politically correct or they think it might hurt them with the voters. I will say it and I will talk about it proudly.”

The leftist response to the president's cap gesture was the predictable sour grapes on social media. One nose-in-the-air lib even thought to accuse the president of behaving badly.

"Trump just tossed a hat at 6 year old son of a fallen police officer at his Memorial Service. UNBELIEVABLE," tweeted Girls Really Rule.

Exploiting the pain of a 6-year-old boy's loss just to attack the president is beyond unconscionable. But these leftist creeps know of no emotional boundary or mercy when it comes to getting their way in politics.

We hope Girls Really Rule gets a flat tire and or Twitter a parking ticket.
