It is totally preposterous and disgraceful that Donald Trump is insisting on wasting tax dollars for a military parade on Independence Day in Washington, DC.
There has never been a national military parade on any holiday, and to use July 4th as an opportunity to promote his own grandeur is obscene beyond belief.
It also could damage the roads of the capital city, and makes Independence Day a political event, when it is supposed to be a moment of celebrating American liberty.
Holding such a parade copies what is done in totalitarian nations, and we do not need to flaunt our military might on the day that represents freedom and democracy.
Hopefully, the turnout will be lower than normal, and the networks should not televise his political speech, glorifying his disgraceful violations of civil liberties, including the disgrace of the mistreatment of migrant women and children at our southern borders.
He’s stealing the money for his parade from the National Park Service.
Fox News will definitely show it for his Maggot base.
Sinclair will probably force their stations to show it.
Is this what Democratic presidential primaries voters think is going to unseat Donald Trump in 2020?
D, I respectfully disagree with you about Kamala Harris.
I have never been impressed by Jimmy Dore, and why you think that Sanders or Gabbard are the best choices, is beyond me!
Are you saying that if neither Sanders nor Gabbard are nominated, that you will support Trump? 🙁
JDS is nasty, using foul language. We don’t want his videos here anymore!
D – If you sit out 2020 or vote for a third party just because you don’t like the Democratic nominee, then you are dooming America and the world. Show your patriotism and kick Trump out of office!
I tuned in out of curiosity. He stayed on script, giving a speech that sounded like a 6th grade history report, although, fact checkers caught a lot of errors. The crowd was mostly white and was bored, barely clapping until the military fly-overs started.
Southern Liberal, your assessment is spot on!
