Donald Trump uses Memorial Day to brag about his presidency. Update!

“Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (&women in 18 years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!”

Not only is he taking a solemn day of respect and remembrance to brag about his own “achievements” but he is also lying about how much he has achieved.

I would like to say write that this is unbelievable, but sadly with this guy in office, it is all too believable.

We no longer have a leader with class, dignity, and style but instead, we have a constantly self-promoting escaped circus clown.

Perhaps he could at least try to follow this guy’s example once in a while.

Update: Here you go.

That is how it is done.

    I guess all those soldiers who died in all those wars gave their lives just so Donald Trump could become president. The narcissism and vanity of the current occupant of the White House sickens me and should sicken every American. What a disaster the GOP hath wrought!

      He is great only in his own mind. If only he could understand how the rest of the world sees him, he would crawl back under the rock where he came from.

    They sure as heck did not give their lives for what we have today, but this is the dotard. I am sharing a video from here in Portland, where my parents are buried, and what is done to prepare for this day Remember when he went to the Boy Scout Jamboree last year and spouted about how much greater he was than President Obama? Well, this is what happens here:

    It’s the same ol’ same ol’ with him no matter where he shows up, especially when goaded into it. Not about the situation, any kind of solution, only how great HE is.

    As always, Trump manages to make others’ sacrifice about Trump.
    This guy has never actually ever done ANYTHING himself. His entirely life has been about taking credit for somebody else’s effort.
    He’s the ultimate parasite. The T-APE-WORM President.
    I don’t know that I’ll get a chance to write much today.”

    “Gardner Dozois has passed away.
    And the world is a dimmer place today for it.
    Gardner and I corresponded many times via email and chat, though we never met in person. He was a regular here on my Facebook page and blog. He often wrote to tell me what he’d thought of my latest piece — and if you don’t know who he was, what a giant he was, well, you can’t understand why that was such an honor for me.
    I counted him as a friend. Like myriad others, his work changed my perception of the world.
    I’ll miss him more than I can say.”

    Memorial Day does honor Donnie Dotard. After all, remember that Dotard said that his “personal Vietnam” was avoiding STDs, so in his mind, he is a veteran who deserves to be honored on Memorial Day. Such a fucking pig.

    ‘Hewitt argued that “90 percent” of all Americans oppose the way Trump is covered by the media.

    “As opposed to, for example, finding something to compliment him about,” the conservative radio host said. “And I don’t think this tweet makes a lick of difference in anyone’s opinion of Donald Trump today.’

      Oppose? Try 90% yell, “STFU’ at their televisions and computer screens. What’s to compliment?

    How about a nice story about how cadet bone spurs served his country,oh wait there isn’t one.

    …Several hours later, Obama put the focus directly on the sacrifices of service members.

    “We can never truly repay the debt we owe our fallen heroes, the former president wrote. “But we can remember them, honor their sacrifice, and affirm in our own lives those enduring ideals of justice, equality, and opportunity for which generations of Americans have given that last full measure of devotion.”

    Except pigs are a hell of a lot better than him!

    Yesterday my 83 year old friend said she is a trump supporter. I nearly threw up. She asked me why I don’t like him. I said, just for starters he is arrogant, ignorant, and rude. And a big fat liar. But she still said she supports him. And she doesn’t even live in the great USA!! Unbelievable!!!

      Pigs are intelligent. He just looks like one.

        Insert “although” in place of the period.

      I have a 97-year-old ex-neighbor that is now in assisted living and slowly failing. I avoid politics as best I can visiting weekly, but she brought it up one day, “they are saying…” Who’s they? “Fox.” You need to change the channel. Their family has made their fortune through real estate, so I can see why they would follow money, but she was always out there and volunteering at rescue missions, and missions out of this country in her hey day. A couple weeks ago, I went to see her, and she complained that she asked her Alexa for a hymn, and it played Elvis “Hound Dog.” I had to hoot….”How Great Thou Art” was the intention. May she see Jesus….LOVE her.

    He is incapable of humility and self reflection. If he self reflected he would see a monster. He is a monster.
    Yet he has a cult of millions of the brain dead.

    This country has never seen such evil as President. Bone Spurs the coward is using Memorial Day to honor himself.
    The sickness is extreme

    It is impossible to wake up a Trump voter. There simply
    isn’t any ‘there’ ‘there. They will feverishly support the next
    charlatan in the same manner they follow Trump. Their emotional
    buttons are being pushed every which way and they don’t have the
    intelligence to even be aware of it.Cultists.

    • Beaglemom May 28, 2018 at 1:57 pm

      I agree with you. And, for that reason, I have never felt a second of guilt for having opposed Trump and his GOP. And I am so annoyed by the persisting media stories about the people who voted for Trump. As far as I’m concerned, his supporters are all idiots.

  14. Elizabeth May 28, 2018 at 12:42 pm

    His tweet is truly sickening. He can’t just honor the millions of soldiers who have been killed or injured, he has to make it about himself! Just one more tweet that proves he is mentally incapable of being a decent president.

    How could someone so thoughtful and intelligent as Barack Obama be replaced by the likes of Trump?

  15. HeidiWY May 28, 2018 at 1:26 pm

    I loathe Bone Spurs with every fiber of my being. That being said…..I also have many current and former service members in my immediate family. They support this orange turd. Not only that, but their friends support him. I am appalled that anyone would support a draft dodger that has slurred a POW (McCain), slurred gold star families, and invited fucking “shit my pants to avoid the draft pedophile Nugent” to defiled the White House!

    I do not understand the military of today. My deceased father and grandfather both kicked nazi ass in WWII.

    WHAT the ever living fuck happened?

    • Anonymous May 28, 2018 at 3:38 pm

      I bet thsrs are the same people that said Bill Clinton couldn’t be president because he got deferments and never served.

  16. Anonymous May 28, 2018 at 9:32 pm

    Any sign of melania today honoring our service men and women who served their country?

    And, why does he blast “happy” Memorial Day? It’s a time of reflection and respect, not a party.
