From this day forward, we can fairly assume there will be nothing more heinous than an American president’s wretched tweet that arrived from the draft-dodger’s bizarre notes on Memorial Day.
By tradition, it was left to Donald Trump to honor the dead in the annual display of humble patriotism. But he was instantly taken by the opportunity to honor himself instead at this solemn moment. Here is how he tickled the minds of his feckless base:
“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 18 years) , rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice.”
One can only wonder about the seeds of his nightmarish inferiority complex that forces him to obsess about Barack Obama, a black man who was more popular than Trump; and Hillary Clinton, a mere woman who beat him by three million popular votes – the same woman that Trump boasted was too physically weak to lead the nation in what, after all, was a guy thing.
Lost in his own enchanted forest and surrounded by a chorus of a solicitous courtiers, still dripping with swamp slime, Trump enjoys the affirmation of his shameless cabinet of rich but meek first responders, even as he communed with the graves.
America, we have a terrible problem.
