"In an interview Wednesday with the Washington Post, President-elect Donald Trump was asked just exactly how he plans to make good on his promise to make America great again. One potential he floated to the Post‘s Karen Tumulty: military parades in DC and New York showing off the armed forces’ human and materiel strength.
The Post reports:
“Being a great president has to do with a lot of things, but one of them is being a great cheerleader for the country,” Trump said. “And we’re going to show the people as we build up our military, we’re going to display our military.
“That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. That military may be flying over New York City and Washington, D.C., for parades. I mean, we’re going to be showing our military,” he added."
And what a magnificent way to increase the welfare of the American people. After all, Trump will be joining a long tradition of doing this to improve the lot of citizens:
Soviet military parade-catch the date
Military parade by you-know-who
And let's not leave this guy out.
Yes, Trump will be joining a long tradition of substituting displays of belligerence for any meaningful work on behalf of the country, but then what else did his people vote for, but more hatred? Americans, I hope you can find a way to pay the rent or your medical bills with these parades, because you aren't going to be getting much help any other way.
