Memorial Day is a solemn event when each of us Americans should take time to give thanks to the men and women of all races and religions that chose to put on the uniform of one of our armed services to serve, fight, and too often die for the freedoms we enjoy.
Donald Trump instead chose to take that time to speak on behalf of our countries dead service members for the sole purpose of self-aggrandizement.
Trump did so in a transparent tweet claiming fallen soldiers would be "happy and proud" of his political accomplishments...
Remember this man is a 5 time draft dodger who regularly attacks heroes like Sen. John McCain for being a prisoner of war and infamously started a feud with the family of a slain U.S. soldier because they were Muslims.
This is a man whom on this somber day had two tweets about "Spygate" for every one about the troops.
VoteVets, a group representing some 500,000 veterans and their families, bashed Trump’s self-promotion on the back's of the dead as well as his decision to wish families of fallen veterans a “happy” day.
VoteVets also took the Republican Party to task for their choice to channel Trump's tone deaf carelessness toward Memorial Day as they to used the occasion to announce a sale on flags, hats, beer koozies and other merchandise with a reminder to use the coupon code “REMEMBER” to save 25% on ANY item in the Official Trump Store...
And Republican's are supposed to be the party of "Patriots".
