Trump Doubles Down On ‘Happy Good Friday’ Gaffe With ‘Happy Memorial Day’ Tweet

It’s no revelation to say that Donald Trump is unteachable. If you recall his Good Friday gaffe, he offended 2.8 billion Christians with his moronic Happy Good Friday tweet. This morning he doubled down on that insult with a Happy Memorial Day tweet. There is only one of two possiblities here: either he failed to learn that solemn days call for solemn messages from a commander in chief, or he falt out doesn’t give a damn and he’s looking to play troll. You decide.

There is a strong possiblitiy that he doesn’t know these holidays are solemn because to him, they’re all commercial opportunities. People have Memorial Day sales, 4th of July sales, most probably Trump is trying to figure out how to have a COVID-19 fire sale on his MAGA merchandise. So, if the cash register gets a chance to ring, then that’s a happy day and hence Happy Memorial Day. Maybe you’ll sell a few more mattresses this weekend or he can sell a few more hats and tee shirts.

What is particularly egregious about this is that today the death toll from COVID-19 will hit 100,000. So in light of a traditional Memorial Day being overshadowed by the death of civilian Americans, some of them veterans as well, this eclipses tone deaf. Here’s the latest unfit tweet from the Current Occupant.

In another tone deaf move, Trump decided to go to Baltimore today, over the objections of the mayor, who doesn’t want to incur the costs of extra security and who asked Trump to respect the stay at home order still in place in the city. Protesters have been rallying in front of Fort McHenry since yesterday. Trump doesn’t care. It’s all about him, like always.

Trump thinks Memorial Day is about the three day weekend. Having Memorial Day devolve into BEING about a three-day weekend is one of the reason some of us questioned that change way back when….

When a “true jerk “, does or says stupid things , (usually someone) around them , tells them they are making a fool of themselves. Trump , must have hundreds of people telling him or his family he’s become an A-HOLE . But he’s unable to understand the concept of “normal behavior.”! So he’s not only a true A-HOLE ,he’s unable to stop himself from resorting to childish behavior. (Cry baby ) tactics! And even people who support him , must hold their noses when they do ! Especially they GOD LOVING EVANGELICALS, (have to be sick )to support him… Read more »
