It’s sometimes hard to believe the reality that we’re living in is real. Imagine if I told you 20 years ago that Donald Trump would be attending an MMA event as a former President and Mel Gibson would be saluting him.

Not a single person on the planet would have likely believed you and rightfully so.

I’m not an expert on the protocol for greeting a former President, but are we sure that you go with a salute? I’d definitely go with a handshake if I was close.

If I can’t go with a handshake, then you definitely do a wave. A salute seems like a bit much for someone not in uniform.
