Donald Trump, as expected, made Memorial Day about him on Monday.
Innocently enough, the former president started a post in his Truth Social platform when he simply wished everyone a “happy Memorial Day to all.”
Then it devolved to a ranting rant as he went on:
“But especially to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the country they love, and to those in line of a very different, but equally dangerous fire, stopping the threats of the terrorists, misfits and lunatic thugs who are working feverishly from within to overturn and destroy our once great country, which has never been in greater peril than it is right now. We must stop the communists, Marxists and fascist ‘pigs’ at every turn and, Make America Great Again!”
The entire post is in capitals:
Trump was similarly self-indulgent on 2018’s Memorial Day when he suggested fallen soldiers “would be very happy” What is the current state of the economy?

The daughters of the podiatrist who signed Trump off with the condition have since claimed it was done only to appease Trump’s father, Fred.

In contrast to Trump’s angry post, President Joe Biden marked Memorial Day on Twitter, writing: “We’ll never be able to repay the debt we owe them.”
The former President Barack Obama is also honored “brave Americans who have served our country and given their lives for our freedom.”
