Veterans Day is a celebration to honor those who have served our country. In contrast, this is Memorial Day, a time to remember our country’s fallen soldiers and to remember the brave sacrifice men and women have paid to keep the United States a free and just society. So, you don’t say ‘Happy Memorial Day’ unless you’re President Bone Spurs, who has no idea what he’s doing as he makes this day all about himself.
“Happy Memorial Day!” President Exclamation Mark tweeted. “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!”

Why are you bragging about the economy on Memorial Day?

So in case you were wondering if Trump would make Memorial Day about him https://t.co/Ndrg9TJfrW

Many people question this president, but it’s no small achievement to write the grossest, most inappropriate, most self-flattering Memorial Day message in the history of the US presidency https://t.co/t8JN7JNwdg

They surely wouldn’t be proud of a six time draft dodging president who violates the constitution and kicks out hard working, American loving immigrants and loses CHILDREN #MemorialDay #WhereAreTheChildren

Nor would they be happy to know that a man who said POWs weren’t heroes because they got caught, a man who disrespected families who made the ultimate sacrifice, Goldstars, who laughed at those who served after he lied about bone spurs, who stole the presidency,.. NO WAY

This is appalling. Even for you, Captain Bone Spurs.

Everything doesn’t have to be about you and your Presidency.. make this day about our service members!

You sure know how to ruin a holiday

Black unemployment has been rising for a year.
How about honoring our fallen veterans by not lying for one whole day?

That’s not how you should be presidential on Memorial Day yah dumb fucking piece of shit.
— ARMY #VetsResistSquadron (@noespanoltrick) May 28, 2018
You even have to make #MemorialDay about you, the sorriest excuse for an American who has ever soiled the Oval Office.

While some people are going to Arlington Cemetary today as a stark reminder that freedom is never free, Trump is bragging about the economy. And by the way, unemployment numbers for African-Americans has been declining for years now. And fallen soldiers cannot be ‘very happy’ because they’re dead, OK?
