    'Show The World Who We Are': Trump's 4th of July Military Show Has Visitors Pumped, But Critics Slam It As An Ego Trip I5Bn3

    From USA Today

    Ledyard King, Sarah Elbeshbishi and Jason Lalljee of USA Today wrote:


    WASHINGTON – As they strolled along the National Mall Tuesday, visitors to the nation's capital were just learning about the grandiose July 4th celebration that will showcase Army tanks and military flyovers beyond the usual pageantry.

    "Awesome," California school teacher and U.S. Air Force veteran Walter De Graaf, 57, said as he stood near the Washington Monument. "Let’s show America who we are. Let's show the world who we are."

    “A little extreme," David Havens, 67, a salesperson from Sebastian, Florida, said about the military display. "Not so sure about that."

    Trump has yet to deliver his address near the Lincoln Memorial Thursday, but his "Salute to America" already is eliciting strong opinions over whether a president revered by supporters and reviled by opponents was injecting politics in an event above the partisan fray that enjoys national appeal.

    "The Pentagon & our great Military Leaders are thrilled to be doing this & showing to the American people, among other things, the strongest and most advanced Military anywhere in the World," Trump tweeted Tuesday morning. "Incredible Flyovers & biggest ever Fireworks!"

    The event is expected to draw ardent Trump backers but there will also be protests, including the burning of a flag and the flying of a "Trump Baby" balloon.

    Singer and actress, Bette Midler, a fervent anti-Trumper, tweeted:



    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/07/02/4th-july-visitors-like-military-show-critics-decry-trump-effect/1623861001/

    Trump is calling this a "Salute to America." I call this "Let's copy off of France to feed my ego. If they can strut like a peacock, why can't I."

    Independence Day, as I know it, is a day to celebrate founding of this country from British tyranny, and today, we have a wannabe tyrant who wants to put our military out there on the 4th of July to "show the world who we are." This is just further evidence that the word "humility" and the name of Donald Trump are nowhere near each other and in this case will never be.

    Just Saying

    He and the fat little dumpling from N. Korea have a lot in common. He likes to show off his tanks and other weapons as well.

    The Copycat-in-Chief saw French President Emmanuel Macron doing this for Bastille Day in France, and Donny decided he wanted to do one too... on AMERICA'S BIRTHDAY! To paraphrase a Hulk Hogan quote, "What'cha gonna do, when the Donald Trump ego trip runs all up in you?!"
