So you're saying that Trump is using this day, Independence Day, that should be about national unity, to set a trap for Democrats? Weird.

Did either of you read the link? <<<Rhetorical BTW, we absoutley know you did not....


It's from 2018 and talking about a 10 November 2018 parade....

The November 10 parade will showcase the military’s armored vehicles — including tanks, which officials previously thought might be too heavy for Washington’s infrastructure to handle — and aircraft. Fighter jets, air transports, and helicopters will fly overhead, as well as historical planes. Troops will march in period uniforms

"The ships are definitely Russian," said noted naval author Norman Polmar after reviewing hi-resolution photos from the event. "There's no question of that in my mind."

When are you people going to give up the idea that the left hate America? That’s a big, fat lie. The Left loves America but hates what the Right is doing to our wonderful country.

It’s a HUGE ego that Trump has. And huge derangement the Right has that they want to kiss Trump’s feet with this parade in his honor (not that he possesses any real honor).

Who said anything about national unity? Democrats have moved us well beyond that point now. Their disdain for today is not new - they have long hated the celebration of America.

Sounds like youve been had hook line and sinker, How many of your fellow Americans do you detest merely because they dont share your views? The only hate i see is your loathing of half the American population.
