The Army/Navy game was on Saturday.

President Donald Trump was in attendance. He received a rousing welcome and wished good luck to both sides.

But then some folks on social media decided that a group of cadets and midshipmen were making white power signs.

You can even see the one midshipman trying desperately not to look so he doesn’t get punched in the shoulder, typical of the circle game.

But people tried to make it go viral to identify the students and ruin them.

Then the media picked it up and were off to the races.

More people pushed back.

Great job defaming students who’ve signed up to put their life on the line for Americans.

West Point and Annapolis responded.

“We’re looking into it,” said Lt. Col. Chris Ophardt, a West Point spokesman, soon after the sign appeared on national television Saturday afternoon. “I don’t know what their intention is.”

“We are aware and will be looking into it,” said Annapolis spokeswoman Cmdr. Alana Garas.

The Pentagon didn’t respond immediately to a request for comment.
