This Fourth of July was a sad day for me. The idea of tanks in front of the Lincoln Memorial was the prostitution of one our greatest national holidays. I shouldn’t have been surprised after watching President Trump cuddling with his fellow autocrats from China, Russia and Saudi Arabia. He was possibly bragging how he had joined their ranks in tank usage, probably not quite as effectively as Tiananmen Square or Crimea but showy.
It gives me concern when you tie putting his tanks in our memorial park and you couple his remark that his supporters are Second Amendment people and they are all armed. Makes one wonder if he is putting out a veiled threat that we had better start realizing who is boss.
