Trump says Rolling Thunder ride will return to DC, organizers say not so fast

https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/26/politics/rolling-thunder-trump/index.html

Washington (CNN)As hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists arrive in the nation's capital Sunday to participate in the final Rolling Thunder, where they pay tribute to service members killed in action or taken as prisoners of war, President Donald Trump says the event will continue next year -- even as the group's president says the annual event is set to end.

"The Great Patriots of Rolling Thunder WILL be coming back to Washington, D.C. next year, & hopefully for many years to come. It is where they want to be, & where they should be. Have a wonderful time today. Thank you to our great men & women of the Pentagon for working it out!" Trump tweeted Sunday morning.


I'm sure he thought they'd be in the front row of his Brown Shirts.

1. Having had to drive on the DC Beltway during their previous visits to town

I'm glad they're not coming. It was no thanks to them there weren't numerous serious accidents the way they treated the Beltway like their own personal stunt driving track.

2. Fuck Dump

 

I worked with Rolling Thunder when I was with with Weider History Group. They're hardcore Vietnam war vets who have no patience fore a bloated piece of fucking shit like Orange Fucker.

3. If tRump himself chooses not to be in Washington on Memorial Day,

why should the Rolling Thunder have to acquiesce to his wishes? RT has chosen to end it. It's not up to Dump to insist otherwise.

4. "Hundreds of thousands" ?

Color me a tad skeptical about that number of either MC or riders all in DC.

Next, can anyone explain what the Pentagon has to do with any private MC groups that couldn't even afford the insurance for a public event?

5. I heard they won't be back

Rolling Thunder President Joe Bean told CNN later Sunday that as of right now, the group was still planning to have this year's ride be their last in Washington.

"This is our final ride in Washington, DC. Until we can get into the White House and talk to President Trump and see what he can do for us -- this is our final ride in Washington," Bean said, after being read Trump's tweet by CNN's Kirsten Holmes.

In December, the group said it would be hosting its last event in Washington during Memorial Day weekend in 2019. Organizers said the costs of putting on the national ride have become prohibitive, with last year's event costing about $200,000 in various related expenses.
