Trump skips WWI ceremonies in France and US

Post by dbackjon »

Despite all the other world leaders making it to ceremonies in France marking the end of WWI, Trump decided to stay in his hotel room (official excuse, couldn't fly, but other leaders drove).

Now, he is skipping ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery because of rain.

Appalling disrespect for Veterans by Trump - but that is par for the course for Trump, who has denigrated veterans multiple times.

We used to get a monthly Obama golfing thread on here...
and a quarterly Obama deficit threads

How come we never get those updates anymore about the Deficit and the Golfing..?

The hypocrisy of the GOP (and their lackeys) is staggering. Trump takes what Obama was critiqued for, does it a million times worse, and the sheeple on the right pull every excuse out of the book to defend him.

If Obama had skipped these ceremonies, the blare from the right would be overwhelming. Now, crickets.

I, for one, find this infuriating. My blood is boiling! I am going to move to another country. Who will come with me?

Hey Clitz

When have I NOT bitched about deficit spending?

I don’t start many threads about it but jeezus there’s a quorum of us who complain about it continually regardless of who’s in office

Maybe I’m quiet now because I really don’t have an audience. NOBODY cares, even the hypocrite who started this thread

I also never complained about Obama’s golfing except for the time I watched him schlep his way down number 18 at Andrews AFB #2 and then refuse to come up and have a beer with me when he finished the hole

I think there should be a pay per view Obama vs. Trump one on one basketball game. I'd bet they'd make a lot of money off it.

I'd also like to see a G.W. Bush vs. Trump bicycle race.

Heard all the excuses for skipping the ceremony in France...

...what's the excuse for skipping the one in Arlington two miles away (or not going to anything)?

Suddenly, liberals are a bunch of flag-waving, veteran-loving 'Muricans!

Too bad they can't take a time machine back to take back the spitting and the baby-killer remarks they hurled at Chizz's dad, my dad, and all the other Vietnam vets they shit all over.

Yeah it's fun to watch them deflect their hypocrisy isn't it.

It's really the one thing any of them do well

Even France went to Arlington and laid a wreath.



But sure, continue to be mad at something that happened 50 years ago, and excuse the shitting over the veterans that Trump does today. Makes total sense...not.

As well they should. If it wasn't for us they'd be speaking German right now.

They don't call them cheese-eating surrender monkeys for nothing.
