I like a parade as much as the next guy. I mean, throngs of screaming people, food vendors selling hot dogs and churros and cotton candy, and an engorged orange gass bag floating above the crowd. Move over Hobbs, here comes Trump.
“… I want a parade like the one in France,”
Because we’re unoriginal and lacking in anything other than jealous purposefulness.
“It was one of the greatest parades I’ve ever seen,”
No…. the Rose Bowl or Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade or possibly any number of Mardi Gras / Carnival Parades are the greatest.
“… it was military might, and I think a tremendous thing for France and for the spirit of France.”
We don’t need a display of military might. We know our military is mighty. They’re might regardless of the crap they endure in service to this country like lack of body armor, like lack of health care, like lack of programs to help them reincorporate into the country after deployments. We don’t need a pompous ass hat marching them in full dress behind diesel fume spewing tanks down city streets to know they exist and sacrifice for the good or what they’re told is the good of the country.
“We’re going to have to try to top it.”
Again, because we are a jealous, petty people and our president is trying to overcompensate for… small hands.
If you want to see what kind of military parade he’s really wanting, check out this video.
or this one…
We don’t need to be THIS!
