Donald Trump did something truly remarkable that no other living president has ever managed to do. This Memorial Day, when we honor our fallen soldiers, the president of these United States managed to make his national message all about him instead of those who died. Then, someone with a very strong link to the White House called him out.
Trump’s message sounded more like an invitation to a picnic: Bring your own hotdogs and buns and catsup. Then, all gather around for a who-can-suck-up-to-me-the-best meet.
‘Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!’
George Conway is married White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. He made a point of retweeting a group of tweets that just pounded the tweet-in-chief for his narcissistic Memorial Day message.
The first tweet was by Jay Nordlinger, senior editor of The National Review. He said:
‘Is this too obvious to state? If a Democratic president said something like this, the Right would go absolutely ape, with me leading the pack.’
Then, there was Larry Sabato’s tweet. He is the director for the UVA Center for Politics and author of The Kennedy Half Century. Sabato tweeted:
‘What a sane, modest contrast to Trump’s narcissistic tweet this morning making Memorial Day all about him. But then Bush 41 is a genuine war hero who would have served even with a bone spur in his foot.’
Finally, there was Ben Shapiro with the Daily Wire and syndicated radio host of The Ben Shapiro Show. The New York Times bestselling author summed Trump’s tweet up beautifully:
‘You did it wrong’
Twitter World was appalled by Trump’s short-sightedness that failed to reach beyond his nose. Check out some of our favorite tweets below:
