Nothing wrong with a military parade, as long as it's presented in a non-partisan manner. Unfortunately it's not the case with this one.

As a child I went to similar parades at the nearby Army post. I thought it was cool to see the old WWII planes.

Tanks won't be rolling down the streets. They will be on display for people to look at. I can guarantee these tanks won't be there though. (Is this guy related to John Bolton?)

Since most of what he does is about him, yes.

Don't you agree freedom lovers ?

Dems fume over Trump plans to address public from Lincoln Memorial on July 4
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/dem...rial-on-july-4

“HOLD THE DATE!” Trump tweeted. “We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C., on July 4th. It will be called “A Salute To America” and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!”
As long as he doesn't talk about his re-election or partisan politics during a taxpayer funded event than that would be a great.

The left hates anything that puts Trump, the military, or the United States of America in a positive light. So the shrill responses on this thread, while amusing, are not unexpected.

How quickly do you think we would be drunk if we took a shot each time he says "I"? During an event that is supposedly not about him.

He is not capable of resisting the temptation to turn it into an adulation-fest. He's just not.

about five to ten times longer than it would take at an equivalent 0bama event.

Inside the Beltway: Obama references himself 467 times in one speech

Barack Obama refers to himself a record-breaking 392 times in Berlin speech

His job is to lead these type of events and talk about the positives of this country and its CITIZENS.
If he gives a short non-partisan speech of patriotic boilerplate he'll avoid a total fiasco. But he has already made it into a campaign rally by reserving the area from the Lincoln Memorial to the half-way point of the reflecting pool for his supporters. And this business of bringing in Sherman tanks? Insane.
