Trump Proposes Massive Military Parade

The New York Daily News reports:

President Trump now wants to hold military parades in the United States — because he saw the French doing it. Trump on Monday said the Bastille Day military parades in France have inspired him to consider a similar extravaganza in Washington, D.C. for Independence Day.

“It was one of the greatest parades I’ve ever seen. Because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July 4th in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue,” Trump said in a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron at Manhattan’s Palace Hotel.

“We’re gonna have to try and top it….We’re thinking about, Fourth of July, Pennsylvania Avenue, having a really great parade to show our military strength.”

  • Michael R

    No more bullshit actions from Trump until the Russia thing is settled .

  • edrex

    nothing looks weaker than a fucking overcompensation parade.

    • jerry

      His inaugural parade was the most pathetic, least attended that I’ve ever witnessed.

      • Librarykid

        Not according to 45. Maybe he should have tried for the NeoNazis and their ilk for a better turnout.

    • Ta-er al-Asfer

      His entire life is an overcompensation parade.

      • RoFaWh

        I’ve wondered before just what his parents did to him to make him the way he is. Some enterprising journalist should track down anyone who was on the inside of the Drumpf Sr household and get them to spill the beans. If any are left, that is.

        • Ta-er al-Asfer

          I’ve heard that his father was a monster, which would explain some things.

          • robindaybird

            Yeah, that his dad goes in streaks of completely ignoring him and then cracking down hard on him when he steps out of line

          Don’t you think the spawn tells the story? No need to look back!

            perfect RW, as clear as can be. It’s whatthe turd has done – and not what may or may not have been done to him – the offspring are straaaaange.

        • Steven B

          I think it’s 50% nurture and 50% nature. He was born with some psychiatric abnormality and comes from an abnormal upbringing. I’m not exaggerating. I really believe that’s true.

          • RoFaWh

            That’s about what I concluded too. Trump has two living siblings, but nothing I’ve heard (whispered by one best person to another) indicates that they are screwy, unlike Donny, who is unquestionably screwy.

            One concludes that Trump’s weirdness cannot be entirely due to parental abuse.

            IOW, just as you say.

    • Harley

      I don’t think Pennsylvania Ave is built to carry tanks, armored personnel carriers and mobile rocket launches. Better to make it a military parade based on 1776 level of military technology. I would go see that.

      • Todd20036

        It’s not. ANd the rest of DC cannot support the weight of those things. And people actually cannot visit DC if all the streets are closed – which they’d have to be.
        And if that isn’t enough, only the deplorables would want to see tiny meat parades at all.

        • Kruhn

          First, Pennsylvania Avenue is closed in front of the White House. Second, the traffic jam from hell would form up if they pulled that crap on Constitution Avenue (which goes behind The White House). This is a bullshit move by a bullshit President.

      • Librarykid

        He wanted the huge weapons for his Inaugural but was told it was logistically impossible and you don’t want all of that weight over the Metro tunnels. What a megalomaniac. Send him to Russia for one of their parades and then refuse him reentry.

  • Anastasia Beaverhousen

    Perhaps he can use that extra money left over from his inauguration scheme to fund it. Oh, and guys and girls, no long weekend for you.. you get to march and dance like a puppet for the king.

    • Uncle Mark

      He’s hung like a Tic Tac; that’s why he’s obsessed with them.

    • zhera

      How long before he renames Penn. Avenue? Trump Avenue probably sounds good to him. And why shouldn’t he have a weekday named after himself?!? Trumpday, the weekly mandatory worshipping of Trump statues on every street corner.

      William Shirer, in Berlin Diary, said the goose-step was one of the most undignified things he saw people do. And he went to enough Nazi parades to see it up close.

          Keep us posted.

          Look at your boy Dr. Johnny go. Breaking all kinds of rules. At least song forone is trying to keep it on subject but Dr. Johnny had to get personal and insulting which is against the rules. That’s all Dr. Johnny adds to your stupidly moderated boards. And what’s funny is I reported him for doing the same thing over and over to me, and nothing happened to him.

          But rude posters like him are who you prefer is absolutely why you don’t have any good people posting on there anymore.

          by the way if I was moderator McOrioles would be banned by now.

    That’s swell. An airborne division or two doing the can-can down Constitution Avenue, followed by a mechanized brigade or two to tear up the pavement. Who pays the salaries and the street repairs?

    And if he does it on a hot day, how many of our military get sunstroke wearing those pretty blue dress uniforms? Big waste of time, or as one of my drill sergeants once said, “Today you get to see a whole division in retreat.”

            Sorry–I forgot to put quotes around it. I understand that his “sheriffing” was limited to running a jail, where he mostly tortured, neglected and killed inmates.

    He wanted to do the same thing for his inauguration. The top brass said to ‘fuck right off’ (essentially). Didn’t he get it the first time? I didn’t think so.

    • Todd20036

      Trump isn’t big on learning.

    • Skokieguy [Larry]

      How long before he start showing up in pseudo-military outfits with random faux medals?

  • pj

    the viet nam series started on PBS last night. i guess we learned nothing from the slaughter of thousands of young people.

    • Ernest Endevor

      No, we did learn one thing. Never have another draft. It makes war unpopular when the cost of fighting it is spread across the country. And that really gets in the way of the propaganda.

      • Nowhereman

        And then refuse to raise the minimum wage or make college affordable. That way only the poor will be inclined to join the military.

        • Ernest Endevor

          Exactly. Starve ’em into our ‘volunteer ‘ army.

    • Librarykid

      and we learned nothing from our own revolution about fighting guerilla troops in their own land with foreign armies: it don’t work. Afghanistan? Hello?

  • Ernest Endevor

    Although, since we spend more on military marching bands than the entire arts budget for the whole fucking country, it might at least give them a chance to earn it.

  • Lazycrockett

    Does he remember what happened to Anwar Sadat?

    • TampaDink

      He’s probably never heard of him….after all, he just recently learned that sometimes hurricanes strengthen enough to become category 5 storms.

      • RoFaWh

        That tiny stroke of enlightenment came with the discovery that there really is a number after four.

        • TampaDink

          An easy mistake for a piece of human garbage who bases his counting abilities on his dick size. Why would he need to know what comes after 4 inches?

      • Librarykid

        But he said we’ve had bigger or worse or something, a remark made totally out of ignorance and arrogance.

        • TampaDink

          Everything that spews from his lying mouth is based on ignorance and/or arrogance.

    • Bad Tom

      I don’t need to research this: No.

  • TampaDink

    Chances are, he won’t be in D.C. next July….whether he’s on vacation in N.J. or has retreated to somewhere more isolated to lick his wounds, remains to be seen.

    • Nowhereman

      • TampaDink

        We came home yesterday. We knew in advance of our return that the house had survived Irma intact, that our immediate neighborhood had only lost power for less than 30 minutes and that there is a medium size tree down in our backyard. It was a volunteer Brazilian Pepper, which are an invasive species. No great loss. We have a friend who has a chainsaw who has offered to help us move it to the street, until the city gets around to hauling it all away…along with all of the other yard debris throughout town.

      Wait till he moves on to government mandated citizen uniforms, as “designed” by Kleptanka!

  • rednekokie

    Then he’ll have to teach them all how to goose step.

  • MassageBear

    The PresiDUNCE wanted this for his inauguration last January, too. He’s already forgotten he was informed the roadbeds in Washington, D.C. were not designed to bear the weight of heavy military tactical vehicles. Honestly, that’s what he wants to show off. Marching uniformed troops is just the frosting on his daily piece of cake.

    I’m all for a big military parade, as long as they march all the way up to the White House to arrest Twitler and the members of his corrupt regime. Hopefully, we can celebrate Independence Day independent of Trump, and his enablers, flying monkeys and Russian money & influence.

        The words of the East German anthem were written for the Deutschlandlied (also known as Deutschland über alles). The music for their anthem later. The words to the East German anthem fell out of use over the pesky “einig Vaterland” part. The DDR government had ended discussions of unification, so the lyrics had to go away.

    I am a Navy Veteran and a strong supporter of our military, but those massive military parades are out of place in our democracy, where the civilian government is supreme. Those kinds of parades are most often held as a display of an authoritarian dictator’s power and with Trump in the White House they are particularly inappropriate.
