Actually, they’ve been doing it all week.
It all started a year or so back with Trump saying that he’d like to see a military parade in Washington DC. The Democrats did what Democrats do best – they shit all over his idea. This was back when the Democrats thought Trump would be impeached as soon as Mueller delivered his report.
Realizing that the Democrats would do everything they could to obstruct him, and knowing that he had to pick his battles, Trump simply bided his time. Earlier this year, with the 4th of July coming up, Trump announced he would give a speech from the Lincoln Memorial. He didn’t need the approval of Congress or the DC government to give a speech.
Later on, Trump ordered the military to park a few tanks on the National Mall. I’m guessing that the main reason he did it was just to irritate the Democrats. He didn’t need permission but I’m kinda surprised that the Democrats didn’t try suing for an injunction to stop him.
Democrats accused Trump of politicizing the holiday, but that was just projection. The Democrats refused to participate and planned some protests to disrupt the celebration. They were loath to be seen cooperating with the President but by refusing to participate they ceded the entire day to President Trump.
Whoever gives Antifa their marching orders either never gave them orders or told them to stand down. Too bad, I would have loved to see them try something. Trump does not control the DC cops but the Capitol Police and the Feeb are taking his orders now, and there were a lot of conservative patriots in town yesterday.
What Trump did yesterday was not a campaign event, but it might as well have been one. Trump understands how to use the “bully pulpit” better than any of his predecessors. Yesterday he got to play the role of statesman and leader. Meanwhile, his critics were either absent or pathetically lame. Code Pink brought in the Trump Baby blimp and someone else brought a mechanical Trump tweeting on the toilet. They were mostly ignored. Then some commies burned an American flag. It was like the Left was making an in-kind contribution to Trump’s reelection.
Two and a half years since he was elected and Trump keeps getting bigger while his enemies are shrinking.
