Note: I’ve spent the past several days putting together a long post on a subject that I find particularly blaring about White America. However, after reading about the President’s antics over this Memorial Day weekend, I needed to speak about it now.
Memorial Day is a solemn day of remembrance of the men and women of the U.S. military who gave their lives for our nation. Yes, there is also a weekend of activities throughout the country, even during this pandemic that is far from finished with us. Yet, not everybody knows how to behave.
President Donald Trump spent his weekend doing his best to show his irreverence and contempt for our fallen soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines. He also did it just as publicly as he possibly could. To his credit, he’s never one to pass up an opportunity to make an ass of himself. Plus, we must not forget the Trump apologists who expect mainstream America to believe the twisted logic they put out on behalf of the President.
