Trump Tweets Phony Saturday Afternoon Message To America & Regretted In In 8 Seconds Flat

-

The president participated in the commissioning ceremony for the USS Gerald Ford this Saturday, making yet another public display of his commitment to bolstering the nation’s military might at the expense of all else. Sure, Trump can manage to give nice speeches at Navy ship commissioning ceremonies, but he can’t manage to respect veterans’ health to the point of doing everything he can to protect the nation’s healthcare system.

He tweeted a video of his speech at the USS Gerald Ford’s commissioning ceremony on Saturday afternoon and, in that speech, he praises the ship like it’s going to herald the grand and glorious future of America or something.

In fact, although it will substantively boost our nation’s military defense capabilities, the USS Gerald Ford will not solve the problem of tens of millions of people being left without healthcare by the Congressional GOP’s health plan. Neither will it solve the problem of the decaying environment in the United States. These are the sorts of things that actually must be addressed to bring about whatever “grand and glorious” future of America may be possible, but the USS Gerald Ford makes no substantive steps forward on any of these issues, no matter how many grand platitudes Herr Trump wants to throw out.

Check out the video of Trump’s speech below. He captioned it:

‘A ship is only as good as the people who serve on it — and the AMERICAN SAILOR is the BEST in the world.’

In his speech, Trump called the ship “an incredible work of art,” boasting that “American steel and American hands have constructed this 100,000-ton message to the world.” The ship is, apparently, the “largest and most advanced aircraft carrier in the history of this world,” in Trump’s words. It has faced significant delays in its construction, partly due to the truly advanced technology which it will employ.

Making the president’s remarks about the ship even more shallow is the fact that it is not going to be deployed for at least four years, needing to first undergo rigorous tests.

Trump eventually tweeted again about the USS Gerald Ford, writing:

‘American steel & American hands have constructed a 100,000 ton message to the world: American MIGHT IS SECOND TO NONE!’
