A Congressman just took official action against Trump’s military parade command

- Februari 08, 2018

In an effort to combat Trump’s seemingly unchecked desire to satisfy his every delusional whim, a Democratic Congressman has introduced legislation aimed at preventing the President from unilaterally ordering his widely derided “military parade” idea from coming to fruition.

Rep. Marc Veasey introduced the PARADE Act today, which stands for “Preventing Allocation of Resources for Absurd Defense Expenditures.”

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

The move comes after a demand by the President to the Pentagon in which he asked top brass to explore a “celebration” of the armed forces. Trump reportedly became interested in the idea after witnessing a Bastille Day military parade in France last summer.

Per a spokesman for the Department of Defense, the agency is “aware of the request” and is in the process of “determining specific details.”

The request was met with swift backlash by those on both sides of the aisle as wasteful, unnecessary, braggadocios, and un-American.

“I don’t want to be Russia or North Korea, I don’t want to be a totalitarian state, and this is straight from their playbook,” said Washington, D.C. council member Mary M. Cheh (D-Ward 3).

Trump, for his part, sought five deferments to dodge the Vietnam War, which makes his obsession with the military all the more ironic. Perhaps he should have considered going overseas to serve this country if he wanted to see a procession of armored vehicles so badly.
