The lengths and expense Donald Trump expects this nation to go to in order to flatter his own high opinion of himself just jumped all the sharks; the Washington Post reports Trump is demanding his own military parade.
President Trump’s vision of soldiers marching and tanks rolling down the boulevards of Washington is moving closer to reality in the Pentagon and White House, where officials say they have begun to plan a grand military parade later this year showcasing the might of America’s armed forces. […]
“The marching orders were: I want a parade like the one in France,” said a military official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the planning discussions are supposed to remain confidential. “This is being worked at the highest levels of the military.”
He wants it because he saw it in France. He wants to see tanks and soldiers, and rather than Cadet Bone Spurs being shuttled out to any of our fine military establishments and war zones in which he could see those things, he wants them to parade down a Washington street so he still has time to visit the golf course afterwards. The military has confirmed, on the record, that they have begun planning for such a thing.
