At this point in his failing presidency, Donald Trump should have learned that his best bet for getting along with disgruntled Americans is to keep his big mouth shut — but learning from experience isn’t really one of Trump’s strong points.
Earlier today, Trump yet again bragged about himself, only to regret it seconds later. This morning Trump announced how “exciting” it was that he would be delivering a commencement speech at the United States Naval Academy next month. Trump tweeted:
So exciting! I have agreed to be the Commencement Speaker at our GREAT Naval Academy on May 25th in Annapolis, Maryland. Looking forward to being there.”
This is absolutely disgraceful and a complete insult to everyone who will be in attendance. Especially considering that last year, when Trump spoke at the United States Coast Guard Academy commencement, he ruined the event by whining to the cadets about his negative media coverage.
It’s also awful because Trump has absolutely no connection with the military — he actually DODGED THE DRAFT to serve in the Vietnam War due to having “bone spurs” and has insulted military heroes such as Senator John McCain throughout his presidential campaign and presidency. And yet, Trump has repeatedly boasted that he had military-like training, which he claims was better than he might have gotten if he’d entered the service.
Having this clown speak to our military heroes through a commencement speech just feels like a major slap in the face — and Americans aren’t letting him get away with it. No one is letting Trump forget how much of an imposter he is, and they were quick to remind the president by hitting back at him on Twitter, showing him that he has NOTHING to be proud of and that he is a disgrace:
