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 were 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.

Either way, I’m here for the content. Mel Gibson saluting Trump is just amazing for the internet, and I don’t care who you are. Whether you love or hate Trump, you have to admit that it’s incredible.
