Trump Melts Down Over Military Parade Cancellation

You knew this was coming:

President Trump called Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D) a “loser” and “a total Fake” after Blumenthal criticized news that cost estimates for Trump’s proposed military parade exceeded initial estimates by millions. Blumenthal had criticized news that cost estimates for the parade had reached $92 million, around $80 million more than initially estimated.

The president’s attacks on Blumenthal followed Blumenthal’s tweet earlier in the evening urging the Trump administration to show “real patriotism” by supporting and improving health benefits for veterans instead of spending money on a costly parade.
