In a recent statement about the military display on the DC mall Trump states



"You've got to be pretty careful with the tanks because the roads have a tendency not to like to carry heavy tanks so we have to put them in certain areas but we have the brand new Sherman tanks and we have the brand new Abrams tanks,"





The US military has not used the Sherman tanks since WW II and the 1950s.


I guess he is going to show off brand new B-25 bombers and M1 rifles as well.

If Supreme Leader Trump says we have brand new Sherman tanks, we have brand new Sherman tanks. Supreme Leader Trump does not misspeak. Reality bends to fit what Supreme Leader Trump says.

Apparently it's 'The Salute to America'.

Trump orders tanks for Independence Day parade - BBC News

Any Americans in London, can celebrate with us Brits, even though we lost, although we have kegs and bottles rather than tanks.

Here's a few places in London to celebrate 4th July.

OTOH, a parade of septic tanks would be a most fitting tribute.

The whole event is disgusting. Trump has taken a National celebration of American independence where traditionally all Americans of all colors and heritage have unified and come together to celebrate our shared democracy and freedom and turned it into a day of personal glorification of Donald John Trump. The mark of a true dictator and authoritarian.

Anybody believe that he won't politicize the event and make it all about himself is delusional.

"It's all about Meeeeeeee, It's all about Meeeeeee,
Wherever I go, whatever I do,
It's....All......About...….Meeeeeeeeeee!"

FYI, I'm having a John McCain Tee shirt delivered via Amazon on Weds. Just in time to wear for the 4th.

Maybe they could have "Old Ironsides" sail up the Potomac river.

LOL, that was old America! In the Current Year America is a racist, genocidal entity and shouldn't be celebrated.
