Trump Says He'll Show Off The US Military In Parades

Donald Trump plans on displaying the United States military's strength when he becomes president by having troops march in parades.
“Being a great president has to do with a lot of things, but one of them is being a great cheerleader for the country,” Trump told the Washington Post in an interview published Wednesday morning. “And we’re going to show the people as we build up our military, we’re going to display our military."
"That military may come marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. That military may be flying over New York City and Washington, D.C., for parades. I mean, we’re going to be showing our military," he continued.
Strong man gotta be strong - dontcha know?
You know who else has or has had a fetish for showing off their shiny new WMD toys to all the other kids on the block ?....
....Of course that would be in order of pictorial appearance, Communist North Korea, Communist Russia, Communist China and one of the most evil fucking regimes in the history of humanity - WW2 Nazi Germany.
Now The Gadfly isn't stating definitively that Drumpf is a communist or a Nazi - but ask yourself - when was the last time you had a U.S. President, Republican or Democrat declare that they were going to show off America's military might to the world by having military display parades? You haven't. None have done it - and for good reason, one which if The Gadfly needs to explain the reasons why not to you, you honestly should not be freely walking the streets of this country without some form of adult supervision.
Imagine for a moment if, during the campaign, Hillary Clinton had made the audacious claim that if she were to be elected President, she would hold military parades on Pennsylvania Avenue and in Times Square to show the world how "great" America is? She would have rightly been laughed permanently out of the American political arena.
But Drumpf is a beast of a wholly different and frightening nature, and his followers are mindless beastlets in which every last one of them, sporting their cute little red MAGA caps, would follow their dear leader straight in to the pit of hell if he asked them to - which is where this country is surely headed should Generalissimo Drumpf be allowed to play unsupervised with his army toys in the world's sandbox.
The Gadfly isn't railing against any specific policy of Drumpf's here -- no -- it is so much more than that. It's about competence and wisdom and sanity and at it's core it is about the future of this nation being at stake. We are in uncharted territory here with an absolutely clueless imbecile with delusions of grandeur ready to take the reins of the world's arguably greatest democracy and undoubtedly most fearsome military complex and everyone is just traipsing about as if it's business as usual.
The Gadfly dares not ponder the price that we will all pay for our collective stupidity and apathy if we grant this juvenile man-child license to let his narcissistic, arrogant freak flag fly come January 20th.
