TODAY national investigative correspondent Jeff Rossen was given rare access to present a dramatic demonstration of how the Air National Guard keeps presidential airspace safe.

What a bunch of over-dramatic toolbars.... Looking at you, today.
toOnybrain (1 day ago)
The incursions are not always malevolent. Oftimes they’re pilots who are unaware of the TFR (inadequate flight planning) and meander into the restricted airspace on their way to get their “$100 hamburger” or to fly to their destinations. The media can only get viewers when they inflate the facts.

All that just to protect a guy who frequently spent (155 times) going to the golf course since he took office.
Money well spent... (Sarcasm)

You would think fighter pilots like these would have been available to intercept those airliners on 9/11. Everyone knew about the first hijacking for hours before running into the towers. Why didn’t they scramble seeing as there are always planes available for these exact situations at all times. Why?
Clinton Jones (1 day ago)
In the time it took to get ready, an attack could easily have happened.
Spitfire pilots in WW2 could scramble amd be airborne in less than 90s seconds.

It's funny how stupid Americans are: their evil government has been lying and deceiving them since decades, their media television PROGRAMMING brainwashing them while the evil U.S gov murders millions around the world.. And still they support the troops, pay taxes and salute their terrorists flag. God bless our wars for profit.. And God bless our lies and deception.. And God bless our screwing the people out of rights and freedom. And God bless our poison in everything the sheeple consume.. And God bless us when we take your property.. And God bless our worlds largest prison population.. Basically, God bless our Satan nation!

Pathetic how NBC and Today will spin ANY story to denigrate Trump! Pathetic how they preclude the story by talking about him going to "his properties" and how expensive it is...Where were they when Obama took his family ALL OVER THE WORLD? Just pathetic!

Boiii, that pilot the reporter was talking to kept referring to the rules of engagement, you know that's what he was told to refer to for any questioned asked about fighting lol
Miroslav Mitrovic (4 days ago)
I wish F16 shoot you down for good to set example. You have no job interfering with the President. You have no job discussing how much he is spending because he is spending his money and doing job for all Americans including you morons. Did you ever try to do that when Hussain was in White House? Did you ever wonder about money this traitor spent?
SuperNova016 (4 days ago)
I wonder what the procedure would be if a passenger plane went rogue in this way? I doubt that would meet the rules of engagement so you couldn't really shoot it down.

Totally fake news!!! After your forced landing you will not be released for a veeery long time. Causing a scramble at the military airport is not something you can get away with. Btw why they bother protecting Donald Duck so vigorously?

You can fly anywhere, uncontested, as long as there’s a US false flag operation in progress.

Obama cost a fortune for security he didn't just go to Fla. he went to Hawaii. talk about a waste of taxpayer money. and still all the jobs left the country under Obama's leadership. That man wasted more money playing like he was a real head of state. and BTW nobody wants to take out weak poor leaders like Obama. they only attack the righteous ones.
