Unfortunately, one of the constants that we’ve been forced to witness in Donald Trump’s presidency is his tradition of ruining pretty much every meaningful holiday with his inability to shut up. Every time there’s a holiday, you can bet on Trump spending it on Twitter and saying something extremely offensive or insensitive. Today was no different.
On Memorial Day, Trump kicked the holiday off by stating that “those who died for our great country” would be happy to see how his presidency is literally ruining the country they fought and died for. Trump wrote this morning:
Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!”
That’s offensive enough, but what Trump did after that tweet is even worse. Not even an hour after that tweet was posted, Trump had completely forgotten about honoring the men and women who gave their lives to serve America, and had turned on Fox News so he could start spewing his conspiracies. Trump’s next tweet was about his made-up conspiracy and latest diversion tactic “Spygate,” in which Trump has been trying to convince everyone that the FBI planted a spy in his campaign:
The President deserves some answers.” @FoxNews in discussing “SPYGATE.”
Some even brought up the fact that Trump shouldn’t be watching Fox News when ICE just lost immigrant 1,500 children – clearly, he has more important things he should be doing.
We all know how the rest of today is going to go. Trump is going to tweet his ass off and not do anything to improve the country. Instead, he is going to humiliate us and not even come close to paying proper tribute to this country’s heroes. The men and women who served deserve better.
