President Trump’s idea exposes liberals for the hypocrites they are. A parade celebrating our troops and their work is apparently the only parade liberals don’t like. Weird.
The White House confirmed on Tuesday that President Donald Trump has asked the Pentagon to explore organizing a major military parade — a desire he first expressed after the martial welcome he received on a visit to France last year.
“President Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation.”
In September, Trump marveled at what “a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France” the military parade was. “And people don’t know what great warriors they are in France, but when you see that and you see all the victories, it was a tremendous thing.”
Not everyone thinks it’s a grand idea, however, for the United States to stage a similar display of pomp and circumstance, which some see as undercutting the quiet professionalism of the American armed forces compared to other nations.
“We have more important things to do than to focus on a damn parade,” retired Army Lt. Gen. Mick Bednarek, who most recently headed up the U.S.-led effort against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, told POLITICO. “It detracts from all we are doing.”
I have a tiny feeling *retired* Lt. Gen Bednarek isn’t a Trump fan. Here’s a newsflash for all the naysayers: we can walk and chew gum at the same time. After 8 years of the military being hamstrung and saddled with a Commander-in-Chief who preferred apology tours to making American great again, it’s time we enjoy a celebration of our military.
One sure way you know this is a great idea is by how upset liberals have already become. Let’s do it!
A few headlines reflective of the liberal hysteria over the idea, all worthy of your best LOL:
