    Trump wanted to hold a parade— costs estimates ranging from $3-92 million— of the military through Washington. (If not outright terrifying, at least massively cringy... not to mention wasteful.)

    Well, according to DoD spokespeople... yeah, that’s not gonna happen. Looking at dates in 2019, maybe. When asked for an explantation about the delay, none was given.

    https://www.npr.org/2018/08/16/6394...parade-this-year-dod-looking-at-dates-in-2019

    Translation: “Mr. President, no, we are not going to turn ourselves inside out for your dumb parade. Please let us do our real jobs, you silly bitch.”

    The American Legion suggests delaying any parade until all overseas troops fighting the interminable “War on Terror” are brought home. The group also suggests that the millions of dollars spent on a parade would be better spent caring for veterans.

    Well that sounds like a very sensible decision.

    Good for them . . . I hope they stick with this decision. Spending $1 on some stupid ego parade is dumb . . . even for Trump.

    DNC parades are conducted frequently internal to the military, having a parade for the public wouldnt be that much different.

    I imagine it being a bit more excruciating to rehearse. "don't lock out your knees"

    Yeah, no need for a parade. You might want to get some help if you find a parade outright terrifying though.

    This is a sound point. A military parade is a showman exercise, but if we're already fighting in wars we are showing the world our might in a much more literal manner as it is.

    Parade is pointless. Let the :eek::eek::eek:s on NBC handle stupid parades.

    lol at Trump wanting a parade so he can sit in his box like Kim Jung Un and wave to everyone like it's HIS military. Trumps ego is so big and his insecurities so large it's hilarious

    good for them.
    Parades are stupid. The only good thing to ever come from a parade was when Mr Holland found out his son Col was deaf.

    To not waste millions of dollars on a military parade for the pleasure of a person who insults veterans, on Veteran's Day?

    Yes exactly he's the Command and Chief of the most powerful military in the world he should not need to waste millions and millions of dollars on a display to prop up his ego.
