I am sure America will survive Trump, in the meantime we Brits are happy to have a drink and even buy Americans a drink this 4th July.
I hear from my English friends frequently about the situation you have in GB with the Tories and Brexit. Our sincere condolences. We understand and empathize completely.

Yea, nothing says "Unity and We The People" like the whole front area cordoned off and reserved for Republican high level politicians by invitation of the White House only.
Tickets being issued to Trump favored guests.

A real expression of American independence and national unity.

Default Trump Announces "Brand New Sherman Tanks" On Display for Fourth of July Celebration.

President Trump is a smart man but he sure says a lot of things that make him look dumb. Not to nit pick but shouldn't our Commander in Chief, the pro-military President, be aware that these tanks have not been used in over 60 years?

Parades showing our military equipment is unnecessary, it's what the leaders in North Korea and Russia resort to.

“And we’re going to have some tanks stationed outside,” he continued, though he added: “Gotta 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 the brand new Abram tanks and we have some incredible equipment — military equipment on display. Brand new. And we’re very proud of it.”

The Sherman tank, mostly used in World War II, was replaced by the U.S. Army in the 1950s.

Just because the man lies 3,000 times a day and fools his simpleton base doesn’t make him smart.

With his narcissistic ego and apparent mental disorder, that is exactly who he wants to be, an iron-fisted dictator that everyone must bow to or face the consequences.

Like everything else he touches, Trump has ruined our annual celebration in Washington DC. There’s a difference between attending the celebration, and making the celebration about yourself.

In the rest of the country we will be celebrating Independence Day.

In Washington DC, they will be celebrating Trump Day. Most not by choice.

Hail Trump!

There is nothing President Trump could do short of bowing down to the DEMs that would get him approval for one thing that he does.
You nitpicking, critical, control freak, can't be pleased leftist DEM's have ceased to be anything more than white noise for a long time.
That is what is ailing you all. You aren't controlling things and are so damned pissed.

HAPPY 4th!!
