Top House Armed Services Member Sends Trump Military Parade Message To Remember

-

We all know of President Trump’s fixation on large things. The biggest. Whether it’s a wall, one of his buildings, or any other object he’s obsessing over, it seems like Trump just can’t help himself when it comes to proving he has the biggest thing or will build the biggest thing.

His most recent harebrained idea, a giant military parade as a show of America’s strength, is laughable. Democrats were quick to point out the irony of a draft-dodger throwing a parade to honor the military he refused to serve in.

Decorated military professionals are aghast at Trump’s audacity.

And now, even Trump’s own party is openly mocking his childish parade. Today, Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) unleashed on Trump:

‘I don’t think it’s a particularly good idea. Confidence is silent. Insecurities are loud. When you’re the most powerful nation in all of human history, you don’t have to show it off.’

And Kennedy didn’t stop there. He called Trump’s parade out, mentioning that show-off parades are things that:

‘Russia does, and North Korea, China. We are the most powerful nation in all of human history. Everyone knows that and there’s no need to broadcast it.’

This analysis from Bill Kristol hits the nail on the head.

Despite his lavish lifestyle, the parade of increasingly younger wives, the “adoration” of beautiful models, and the insistence that he is the best, Donald Trump is still just an insecure and immature man. He thinks that if people stand and applaud him, if he throws parades and says things like this:

…he will gain the respect he so desperately craves. But it looks like the world knows exactly what Donald Trump has to offer.

A German newspaper published this harsh rebuke of Trump:

‘Through his own lack of success, the populist dazzler could be effectively debunked. Stated differently, Trump must become smaller. Only then can America eventually become great again.
