The New Jersey Advance reports:
The U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the U.S. Air Force’s Thunderbirds performed a flyover of New York City today. The flight began at noon near the George Washington Bridge. The fighter jets flew in formation over Newark, New Jersey before heading back over Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens.
After that, the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds crossed the Long Island Sound and make their way in the skies over Stamford, before heading back into New York for a pass over The Bronx and back down along the East River.

In every dictatorship, there is a fancy military parade or flyover to project an image of strength when it’s really to hide profound weakness in the country’s leadership. Doctors want personal protective equipment and stay at home orders instead of a useless military air show.

HAPPENING NOW: Navy Blue Angels and Air Force Thunderbirds fly over New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania in a salute to our first responders.
This is spectacular and historic tribute to all those on the frontline of the war against #COVID19!
God Bless America! 🇺🇸 https://t.co/5lKLwp9vL8

It’s ironic because the Blue Angels flying over the country to distract from the chaos of the pandemic are part of the military-industrial complex that distracted the country from its developing disparity and political decay that laid the groundwork for the pandemic.

People are actually complaining on the social media about The Blue Angels flying over NYC in honor of the medical workers on the front line. My god. When does it stop? The wrong people are dying. 😞

Obama NEVER sent Blue Angels to bring joy to Americans
