Words fail: SHITLER wished "Happy Memorial Day" to members of Japanese military

AWKWARD: Trump Wishes ‘Happy Memorial Day’ to Members of Japanese Military


.... On Tuesday morning local time, but still Memorial Day in the United States, Trump addressed members of the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force on the deck of the Kaga in Yokosuka.

“I want to start by saying Happy Memorial Day,” Trump said, adding “Happy Memorial Day. It’s a great day.” ....

Trump delivered a similar greeting to troops aboard the USS Wasp.

“And I have to wish you all a very Happy Memorial Day, right?” Trump said, and added “Memorial Day — very special back home.” ....

Last year, Trump took heavy criticism over another “Happy Memorial Day” message in which he boasted about the economy, writing on Twitter “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 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!” ....

3. So many things incredibly wrong with such a short statement.

It's mindboggling.

4. I don't think anyone has been in the military in trumps family.

I don't think military school counts. Most of us have had family in the military, my dad was WWII and my fil and an uncle were in korea. We were raised to have respect for our country and our flag.

All trump and his family have done is profited from wars. No respect.

5. My dad, the Korean War veteran, picked up on this right away.

 

You don't say "happy Memorial Day" to a crusty but still sharp old Marine without getting a hearty "fuck you" hurled back at the TV.

Love my dad.

7. Some times people wish me a Happy Veteran's Day.



I give them an icy stare. I say nothing because it shows they can't even
begin to understand so there's no point in trying to explain to them.

11. maybe think about explaining your reaction

because, as I tell my wife, an icy stare doesn't educate anyone. they can't "begin to understand" unless you help.

14. For Veterans Day people's intentions are obviously good

For Memorial Day, there's nothing happy about it. But then I did have a customer who was a retired career Navy veteran wish all the veterans in our office a Happy Memorial Day so no one was about to educate him, although he ought to know better.

Trump is just dumb, but most folks mean well.

10. There's so much wrong with all of that...

But for starters, Memorial Day isn't supposed to be "happy," it's supposed to be a solemn remembrance of soldiers who died in wars. And since it's a commemoration of dead American troops, you sure wouldn't say it to members of a defeated foreign military force that was once responsible for some of those deaths. It's beyond inappropriate, but Trump just has no idea how to do these things. Every other president (even W, who was kind of a putz) understood the difference between appropriate and inappropriate statements. I guess when you're totally self-absorbed you just can't be bothered to figure it out.

12. but like all holidays, people want to have fun on their day off

the problem is inherent in the structure of the day, and President Asshole is incapable of learning the difference between Memorail Day and, say, the 4th of July.

13. Adding to that:

* Trip was optional, not needing to go out of the country on the solemn occasion.

* The appearance, at least, of more dereliction of POTUS duties, not leading national observances, all kinds of big and little ways. He can't even show his face at places that are routine for other presidents.

* Speaking of Shrub, what is it with these rich dudes who went to "the best schools" and came out ignorant of the basics of civics and the country's history and traditions?! Not to mention The Law.


********ON EDIT: And there's another thread about active duty military having SHITLER patches on their MILITARY ACTIVE DUTY UNIFORMS, a travesty of military regulations. So even military members have a problem with the concepts of service belonging to the country, NOT to any individual (POTUS). But beyond that, the majority of the country as a whole have a lack of basic knowledge. It's doubtful that SHITLER and certainly his core Deplorables wouldn't be able to pass the Citizenship test that immigrants take.

17. those schools are for bragging rights only


They got what is called the "gentleman's C" grades, the schools were either legacy, as in the case of Shrub, or given a huge donation shortly before the kid was enrolled, as we know now about trump.

Kind of ironic about the wealthy parents who are charged with bribing people for their kids to get into college, when in fact it happens all the time with Ivy League schools, but the money is called an endowment.

15. That's what ya get when your president is one generation from KKK and two from Germany..

19. I wish I could truthfully say I'm shocked.

However, nothing Captain Moron Spiced Rump says or does surprises me anymore.
