Donald Trump just can’t help himself when it comes to being the center of attention. Donald is that kid with serious emotional issues who acts out for attention, even if the attention is negative. He hasn’t realized how transparent his motives are, but thankfully, at least half the country is fully aware and experiences the secondhand embarrassment that Trump should be feeling.
Now, another show of his ego is obviously due, prompting The Donald to make the Fourth of July event at the nation’s capital a spectacle all about himself.
According to Washington Post:
“Plans by President Trump to reshape Washington’s Independence Day celebration now include an area in front of the Lincoln Memorial reserved for dignitaries, family and friends that will be accessible only through tickets distributed by the White House.”
“The VIP section will stretch roughly from the steps of the memorial to the midpoint of the reflecting pool, according to the U.S. Secret Service. It is in front of the spot from which Trump plans to address the nation as part of his rebranding of the traditional July 4 event into his own “Salute to America,” which includes moving the fireworks from the reflecting pool to two different sites, including West Potomac Park.”
People are, of course, angered by the president’s selfishness. The closing of the Lincoln Memorial will put a wrench in the holiday plans of many people who make the trip annually. Not to mention, the holiday is about the country, not the president.
“The revamped festivities will include additional fireworks, military bands and flyovers by Air Force One, the Blue Angels and aircraft from all branches of the military.”
“However, some details — including how the VIP section will operate and how it will affect the access and sightline for the general viewing area — still are unclear.”
“Many people who have long-standing practices for how they get downtown, or where they position their boats for the best vantage points and ease of access, will need to make adjustments. Even travelers passing through the region’s skies will be affected, with all operations at Reagan National Airport suspended for up to an hour and 15 minutes on July 4, the FAA said late Friday.”
No one is amused by Trump’s utterly pathetic and very costly celebration of himself on the taxpayer’s dime. He will literally stop at nothing to make sure he goes down in history as the biggest mistake this country has ever made.
Trump makes for a hell of an argument against the electoral college, that’s for damn sure.
The report goes on to state that:
“Local and federal officials on Friday held a news conference to address security issues and deliver updates on the plans still unfurling just days before usually large crowds descend on the Mall from across the region and the country.”
“The ongoing shifts to what had been established security and crowd-control protocols have left officials in the District and some federal agencies confused about logistics as basic as what Metro stops and roads might be open or closed, and for what period, and how many fireworks displays will launch.”
How truly arrogant must one be to not be completely humiliated at the very thought of uttering the demands for this party.
The president must be stopped before America goes bankrupt.
