And folks are going crazy.
Democrats will make it all about Trump, and it will be hard to argue with them. They’ll argue it’s a waste and unbecoming of a U.S. president. Trump, meanwhile, will revel in the controversy it causes and the spectacle, insisting he’s just promoting the American military and suggesting that people who oppose it oppose the military. (This will undoubtedly happen.)Were I still on active duty, I'd cringe. Not at the parade itself, but at the logistical nightmare that such a thing entails. Parades of any size, even a piddling brigade parade, make staff officers swear and commanders berserk. The privates and the sergeants know that they'll spend weeks preparing, cleaning, polishing and rehearsing, and that when it is all over, they'll be foot-sore and tired.
It will be a grand spectacle, and it will be pure Trump.
Exit question: Didn't they have a grand veterans parade back in the '30s?
