President Trump is entitled to attend or not-that is his rightful decision....

-68 ( +7 / -75 )

Is there something in the Constitution that says he has to attend?

-65 ( +7 / -72 )

Trump avoids attending a grave for Americans on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

This is shocking behaviour. Trump is totally disrespectful of our military and soldiers. And, on cue, his shameless followers rush to defend their snivelling coward of a president. Disgraceful.

51 ( +57 / -6 )

Oh! And he avoided it because of “the weather”! The gutless baby won’t honour US troops because he is afraid to get his hair wet.

Trump is a useless infant.

42 ( +47 / -5 )

Good ol president bone spurs at it again....

39 ( +43 / -4 )

Trump is different from traditional mediocre politicians and that is his charm. People are expecting him behave different from other leaders who are only following traditions considering influences that will result. He does not care about. For Trump, his profit (in this case his health) is first. For a person in his 70, he was too busy recently.

-47 ( +4 / -51 )

Is there something in the Constitution that says he has to attend?

No, of course not. But there is something in the honor and respect of the office of the Presidency that requires it. It's the unspoken requirements of Commander in Chief.

Then again, this is the same man who tried to score a 'punch back' at Michelle Obama over her husband's military budgets, but who today refused to go honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

A man who is willing to send thousands of troops to the border to sit on their backsides and do nothing away from their families as the holidays approach... is unwilling to take a 90 minute car trip with his Chief of Staff and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs in order to pay respects to the dead of World War I.

The same coward who says he loves the military... but is unwilling to actually honor them with even the smallest of gestures. Instead, he holed up for four and a half hours in the Ambassador's home.

Great leadership there, Cadet Bonespurs.

The brace Marines Trump decided not to honor weren't able to cancel because of the weather.

Is there something in the Constitution that says he has to attend?

Yes, it's right next to the part that grants the president the right to fire the AG. ROFL. Smh. Oh my . . . Kuddos!

Some saw Trump's no-show in Belleau Wood as a sign of disrespect to U.S. soldiers who fought and died in the trenches.

Yep, that's how I see it, along with most of our military members and vets - par for the course with this President.

The cancellation drew derision from some critics, with several suggesting he was afraid of messing up his hair and others noting that the rain had not stopped French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel or Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau from visiting memorials.

He again shows he's not a real President....

"Unlike Trump, a little rain never stopped President Obama from honoring our fallen war heroes on Veterans Day," former Pentagon official Adam Blickstein tweeted along with a picture of Obama carrying a wreath at a rain-soaked remembrance ceremony.

And this is what real President's do...

Of course, he could be busy getting his performance review with his boss Putin...

30 ( +33 / -3 )

If the Secret Service can't guarantee protection of the president due to changes in weather they can override his authority and cancel his schedule. He has no say in the matter.

-33 ( +3 / -36 )

"Unlike Trump, a little rain never stopped President Obama from honoring our fallen war heroes on Veterans Day," former Pentagon official Adam Blickstein tweeted along with a picture of Obama carrying a wreath at a rain-soaked remembrance ceremony.

Yet again, Obama out classes Trump. Care to comment on why Obama loves the military more than Trump?

25 ( +28 / -3 )

Yep, that's how I see it, along with most of our military members and vets - par for the course with this President.

Some might see it as a snub and others and may not.

-9 ( +0 / -9 )

The Secret Service has nothing to do with it, and neither did his health. He’s a lazy fatso who doesn’t care about the troops, that’s why he didn’t go.

32 ( +34 / -2 )

If the Secret Service can't guarantee protection of the president due to changes in weather they can override his authority and cancel his schedule. He has no say in the matter.

This statement has no basis in reality.

Weak retort. Very weak.

20 ( +23 / -3 )

Spoiled class marshmallow, draft dodging mommy's boy donnie. He's disrespected Gold Star parents, POW's, families of KIA's. He bragged about serving his own private Vietnam by avoiding STD from all the women he was with while the war (which was a hideous, vicious mistake) was going on. In his defense, it could be dementia has set in and he's unable to reason clearly. His actions recently certainly indicate that could be the case. He needs to stand down. Stand down donnie, stand down. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFaFVhyjb5Y

The vast majority will see it as a snub. I don't think it is a deliberate snub, it is just that he doesn't care.

He is now bored of the whole WWI thing and can't be bothered to stand in front of a load of graves while people make speeches in foreign languages.

21 ( +24 / -3 )

Some might see it as a snub and others and may not.

The President didn’t attend the final resting site of American soldiers on the centenary of the end of the First World War because he didn’t want to get wet.

We know from video footage a week or two ago that he’s too stupid to know how to use an umbrella, but this is an insult to the military and to the troops.

Why does the GOP hate the troops?

24 ( +25 / -1 )

Trump has been very busy tied up with living Americans. Living people first and dead people second. He will visit in other occasion to pay respect to the dead Americans.

-30 ( +1 / -31 )

Spoiled class marshmallow, draft dodging mommy's boy donnie.

He’s not the only President that did, so what the point?

He's disrespected Gold Star parents, POW's, families of KIA's.

They disrespected him as well. it’s kind of funny to watch liberals get upset when I talk about this president disrespecting the military when Democrats and a large majority of them could care less about our military.

He bragged about serving his own private Vietnam by avoiding STD from all the women he was with while the war (which was a hideous, vicious mistake) was going on. In his defense, it could be dementia has set in and he's unable to reason clearly. His actions recently certainly indicate that could be the case. He needs to stand down.

Ok and?

-30 ( +2 / -32 )

Trump has been very busy tied up with living Americans. Living people first and dead people second.

He hasn't been tied up with anything. Nor was the weather that bad. In simple terms that Cadet Bonespurs could understand, he's a terrible, terrible person. A loser really, so low IQ that he couldn't even understand that keeping to his schedule of honoring the war dead was actually important.

Sad. Very sad.

19 ( +22 / -3 )

Trump has been very busy tied up with living Americans. Living people first and dead people second. He will visit in other occasion to pay respect to the dead Americans.

There will never be another one hundred year anniversary of the end of the First World War. President Fatso had one chance to honor the troops on this serious and solemn occasion, and instead he’s in a hotel in Paris doubtless filling his fat face with pastries and bonbons instead of honouring or helping Americans living or dead.

I’d say it’s the most disrespectful thing he could do to the US military, but he’ll ppbably outdo himself before the year is out.

25 ( +26 / -1 )

He’s not the only President that did, so what the point?

Clinton received educational deferrals and Buah II was placed in the National Guard. Trump had his daddy pay a doctor to lie about bone spurs. I see the parallels.

it’s kind of funny to watch liberals get upset when I talk about this president disrespecting the military when Democrats and a large majority of them could care less about our military.

It's kind of funny that we are on the thread of an article that demonstrates Trump disrespects the military and have a direct example of that in him disparaging McCain and the gold star family, but all you have is an unsupported assertion. ROFL! Smh.

Ok and?

It demonstrates his lack of respect for the military. That was difficult. I'm sure everyone else is happy that I explained it because it wasn't painfully obvious to those with a measurable IQ.

18 ( +21 / -3 )

Ok and?

So you agree he needs to stand down. Great! That's progress!!

17 ( +18 / -1 )

A event of WW1 and they expect the US president to put himself in harms way to bad weather in a foreign country and has to personally attend it? It seems like they take it as a insult and a dishonor to the dead if the President skip a ceremony in a foreign country. Do they even have any idea just how many US troops died during this whole century alone? He would be pretty busy to be force by others to personally attend every single one of them. In other countries no less. THe should give them a tweet like he always does and send a ambassador.

-19 ( +1 / -20 )

Why do I find myself so sure that the people defending Donald Trump over this would be howling with outrage if it were a president they didn't like doing the same thing, e.g. Barack Obama?

22 ( +24 / -2 )

Why do I find myself so sure that the people defending Donald Trump over this would be howling with outrage if it were a president they didn't like doing the same thing, e.g. Barack Obama?

Because you've witnessed it before and don't practice self-deception like Trump fans do.

A event of WW1 and they expect the US president to put himself in harms way to bad weather in a foreign country and has to personally attend it? It seems like they take it as a insult and a dishonor to the dead if the President skip a ceremony in a foreign country.

Firstly, it wasn't 'putting himself in harm's way,' it was a light drizzle. In fact, pictures of the event show that there was no visible rain, the sky was leaden and overcast. Perhaps somber even, as the heavens themselves wept for the honored dead.

Cadet Cowardly Bonespurs didn't.

Second, the ceremony was for US troops, in a cemetery that only holds US troops, and if my memory serves me correctly, has been given by the people of France to US as American soil. The US flag flies over the cemetery, just like it does at the other US cemetery for the World War II dead.

He couldn't take the time to actually do his job. He's a coward, and a pathetic excuse for a man, and any excuse for his behavior is equally pathetic.

21 ( +22 / -1 )

It's kind of funny that we are on the thread of an article that demonstrates Trump disrespects the military and have a direct example of that in him disparaging McCain and the gold star family, but all you have is an unsupported assertion. ROFL! Smh.

Not at all, the Democrats for many years of disrespected the military, didn’t care about funding it, didn’t care about the veterans or the VA and now all of a sudden they worry about what this president is saying or that he’s canceling a historical event?

It demonstrates his lack of respect for the military.

His two year record as President says otherwise..

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

President Fatty isn’t putting himself in harms way by walking under an umbrella, and there’s no need to send an ambassador when - say it with me! - he’s in Paris RIGHT NOW.

He just doesn’t care about the troops. Why not admit it?

22 ( +23 / -1 )

He again shows he's not a real President....

Newsflash - not taking the time and effort to attend this ceremony honoring those who served their country and made the ultimate sacrifice offends all Americans, whatever your politics.

Yep, that's how I see it, along with most of our military members and vets - par for the course with this President.

Some might see it as a snub and others and may not.

If you wore our nation's uniform, or honor those who did, then this is a snub...

Yeah... It's not JUST the military.

10 ( +11 / -1 )

"Donald Trump complained about having to stand in the rain, to speak about the massacre in Pittsburgh, because it messed his hair up (more)," the VoteVets veterans lobby group tweeted.

A left of center veterans PAC criticizes Trump. Big deal, but that won’t stop the Dem tool, the MSM, from using it to score some divisive points.

Commemorating the end of WW1 understandably means a heck of a lot more to Europeans than it does for the US. The Brits tout out those red paper flower lapels each year right?

-21 ( +1 / -22 )

His two year record as President says otherwise..

His 'two year record as President' shows that he doesn't care one whit about the US military beyond using them as his personal puff piece, a political tool for him to puff out his chest and try to swagger like the wannabe tinpot generalissimo that he fancies himself to be.

11 ( +12 / -1 )

not taking the time and effort to attend this ceremony honoring those who served their country and made the ultimate sacrifice offends all Americans, whatever your politics.

But we don’t know what the reason is, I could be the weather, it could be your security issue, you and I have no idea why this is been canceled and we shouldn’t speculate.

If you wore our nation's uniform, or honor those who did, then this is a snub...

To some perhaps, to others not.

He never attended the MILITARY so why would anyone expect him attend a ceremony honoring many who joined and fought for the country he claims to love so much.:-/

11 ( +12 / -1 )

Schopenhauer,

“For Trump, his profit (in this case his health) is first. For a person in his 70, he was too busy recently.”

In other words, he suffered a major lapse of judgement in running for the office of President at his advanced age. And he will be even older and unable to fulfill his duties at the time of the next Presidential election.

Keep yourself in top condition, President Trump.

Because the country he claims to love so much wouldn't be what it is today without them. But your point is fair.

I'm getting pretty sick and tired of Trumpsters here saying this Impostor President is somehow a supporter of our military....he forfeited all rights to that when he did two things;

Disrespected the service and sacrifices of John McCain when he said he "he's not a war hero"...

Criticized and insulted a Gold Star family...

Those two things say it all - he can never recover the respect of those who served or are serving...

18 ( +19 / -1 )

So if The Secret Service for whatever reason canceled the event or had to make last-minute changes, then what is the president supposed to do? Do you know if there’s a threat somewhere around him? We don’t know anything and if there is danger surrounding the president, he wouldn’t necessarily know immediately, there are all kinds of scenarios that could take place or play out that we don’t know about and anything or any comment after that it’s based on pure speculation.

-29 ( +0 / -29 )

In every picture, if he’s not sneering and raging, he sits there slouched and unengaged. When he’s with our allies he looks hostile, bored and sulky. The only time I’ve seen him looking happy and engaged with world leaders was when he was with the Saudis, the Russians, and the North Koreans.

Trump can't honor fallen American soldiers because it's raining?

Trump thinks geopolitics are like his irrelevant real estate deals, in which he can bully and insult people, screw everything up, walk away if he doesn't get what he wants, and then do a different deal somewhere else. So stupid.

17 ( +17 / -0 )

Yes we do - President Trump is a lazy idiot who doesn’t respect the military, the troops or their sacrifices. It’s that simple. Trump and the GOP don’t care about the troops.

President Trump respects the military by funding it and building up its resources.

It is better to show support through actions, than hollow photo-ops, and empty words.

In other words, he suffered a major lapse of judgement in running for the office of President at his advanced age. And he will be even older and unable to fulfill his duties at the time of the next Presidential election.

I challenge any man half his age, to keep up his schedule.

I challenge any man half his age, to keep up his schedule.

No office hours until 10:30 AM with long periods of 'personal time' starting as early as 6 where he holes up with his McDonalds to watch Fox News and send off Twitter rants?

I do double that amount of work 6 days a week, and three times that amount of work on Sundays.

Spoiled class marshmallow, draft dodging mommy's boy donnie.

@bas4 He’s not the only President that did, so what the point?

I understand that someone from a rich family, able to have his own private jet, and who's never served in the military would have a very different opinion from a veteran's. You're entitled to your opinion, as of course are veterans.

13 ( +14 / -1 )

No surprise that the orange couch potato balked at going out to stand the rain to listen to politicians speechifying in unintelligible tongues before a bunch of graves when he could be watching it all from his hotel suite with a cheeseburger and coke. Plus, he doesn't even know how to close an umbrella, as we saw from his hilarious behavior when boarding Airforce 1 recently.

11 ( +11 / -0 )

White House insiders noted that organizing a presidential motorcade, typically involving dozens of vehicles, would be a tall order at the last minute.

There was no contingency planning! Change due to rain is a pretty obvious planning thing

Meanwhile our PM delivered his speech by putting down his umbrella in the rain and using it to effect and also laying a wreath. Putin stands in the pouring rain during his ceremony as well.

On the 100th anniversary, you don't get a do-over. USA is officially a world pariah

13 ( +13 / -0 )

The main reason Trump was going was to commemorate the end of WWI by paying his respects at such war cemeteries and he couldn't fathom the thought of his implanted orange coiffure getting a bit wet? Trying to defend such indefensible behavior is pathetic.

16 ( +16 / -0 )

Bass4funk says:

But we don’t know what the reason is, I could be the weather, it could be your security issue, you and I have no idea why this is been canceled and we shouldn’t speculate.

Then less than 30 minutes later speculates:

So if The Secret Service for whatever reason canceled the event or had to make last-minute changes

If you don’t like speculation, stop speculating. In any case, we know what the reason was, because we were told what it was: the weather. President Trump didn’t want to get his hair wet and is too stupid to use an umbrella. His comfort is more important to him than honoring the troops. Because he doesn’t care about them.

So what “service” was McCain performing when he met with Ukrainian neo-nazi leader Oleh Tyahnybok?

Thank you for providing another example of Trump and his supporters utter disdain and disrespect for our military heroes....

I'm well over half Trump's age, and I keep up a way busier schedule than he does. Not even comparable.

That said, I've had a life of fitness, and I'm not a fat disgusting lazy slob like a certain president.

Trump laid out his intentions in August:

go to the Paris parade, celebrating the end of the War, on November 11th.

I suspect Trump thought the cemetery visit would be too boring, and that he'd save his energy for the big parade he's been expecting, where he can work on his Mussolini impersonation.

13 ( +13 / -0 )

Sports star not kneeling for the anthem = Disrespecting our armed services!

Commander in Chief not visiting war graves = No problem!

How do conservatives even expect normal people to follow their twisted logic when it follows these rules?

13 ( +14 / -1 )

Stranger: That does make sense, thank you very much. Unfortunately I doubt that this:

And to be clear, this is not an insult, this is simply clearly stating the position he has established for himself here through his own choice of words.

Will keep your comment from being deleted. The moderators delete my comments where I literally read Bass’ words back to him for being disrespectful. Bass has called himself a coward and a racist, and when I thank him for his candour, my comment is apparently not respectful. Go figure.

11 ( +12 / -1 )

Dump, the draft dodger who dodges his responsibilities as President, is conning his supporters like always. He is a "Nationalist" when it benefits him.

He is probably worried about acting AG Whitaker recusing himself and the Georgia and Florida recounts underway.

He is an old, unhealthy, fat man, with the attitude of a spoiled teenage girl. He is probably laying in bed pouting with his "Happy meal comfort food" and wondering why everyone in the world don't kiss up to him like his employees.

LOL!

The President and First Lady's trip to Ainse-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial has been canceled due to scheduling and logistical difficulties caused by the weather," a White House statement said.

Instead, Trump sent his Chief of Staff General John Kelly and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joe Dunford in his place to the site, which lies 80 kilometers northeast of Paris.

So there you go. You have both the official explanation for Trump's failure to attend the ceremony, and the debunking of it, all in two easily-digestible sentences. So you can boil Trump's thinking down to this:-

We can't go 'cos it's gonna be wet and uncomfortable, but these guys can go OK. What? What's my being President got to do with it?

Despite the fact that for America WW1 only started in 1917, 50,000 or so Americans died in it. That's nearly as many as died in Vietnam. I can't imagine that any US President would dare show the same lack of respect to those who died in Vietnam, however you might feel about the justification for either war.

13 ( +13 / -0 )

Maybe just having to think about war made his bone spurs play up.

10 ( +10 / -0 )

But we don’t know what the reason is

We do. Trump is too lazy to hold an umbrella. He also doesn't know how to operate one. Look:

Is this due to an aging brain? Being too fat? Both? Rain might mess up his orange fake hair?

Schopen and Hiro

Trump is different from traditional mediocre politicians and that is his charm. People are expecting him behave different from other leaders who are only following traditions considering influences that will result.

Most of his supporters like him because he is liar. They are mostly liars too living in a fantasy of their own creation. They see themselves the way he seems himself (narcisists). Like Dump, they don't like the truth or reality. It seems that he has been more successful at lying to others than most. They envy his accomplishments at being deplorable liar like Dump envies dictators.

When the Tea Party fizzled out, all of those lying "Joe the Plumbers" had to go somewhere. They are called Dump supporters now.

Perhaps the Secret Services have not let him go, to avoid that his vulgarity would sabotage a solemn ceremony.

Do they even have any idea just how many US troops died during this whole century alone?

What are you talking about? It was a US cemetery, honoring US deads during WWI. I am usually standing against strong patriotism and in military followers but this is just crossing the line. I feel bad for the families of the American combatants who gave their life in WWI to be ignored like that. There's a minimum decency to have. Whatever propaganda is spurred, west Europeans respect, remember and are grateful of North American combatants.

Hmmm...Thinking about it, I would too.

The only time I’ve seen him looking happy and engaged with world leaders was when he was with the Saudis, the Russians, and the North Koreans.

Is that a crime?

Trump can't honor fallen American soldiers because it's raining?

Again do we know the exact reason as to why he can’t? There could be a multitude of reasons

Trump thinks geopolitics are like his irrelevant real estate deals,

In a way, they are to a large extent when it involves us.

in which he can bully and insult people, screw everything up, walk away if he doesn't get what he wants, and then do a different deal somewhere else. So stupid.

No, I think it’s brilliant. He approaches it like a businessman and not like most of our previous scared and cowardly Presidents.

IT'S RAINING RAIN TRUMP PEOPLE. Not raining bullets and rain does not kill anyone.

Critics pointed out world leaders like Emmanuel Macron of France, Angela Merkel of Germany, and Justin Trudeau of Canada managed to attend events Saturday despite the rain.

(news source)

Next time Republicans, please pick a better man for your president. There were better choices. What were you thinking? What was wrong with Kasich or Chiristie? Yes, I understand Christie would have had trouble fitting under an umbrella but he still would have the decency to go. Trump is a lazy loser.

Yes, because we were told. Stop speculating.

The Armistice centenary tomorrow, and Trump couldn't be bothered to honour his country's war dead as it was raining. Other leaders managed it and tomorrow morning the Queen and many others older than Trump will be standing in the rain at 11am to remember those who died. Trump is a disgrace, how low can he go?

11 ( +11 / -0 )

Be fair, it's not the first time he was expected to show up for the military and he found other things to do instead.

And he had a well-documented difficult relationship with umbrellas.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avkkdrjDsTA

What astounds me is the logical disconnect Trump's fanboys - and worse, the Republican Party itself - can tie themselves up in to justify this blatant disrespect for fallen heroes.

Does anyone else remember when Obama was coruscated for wearing a brown suit to a press conference? A press conference, by the way, in which he answered questions from the press, instead of stomping away from the podium when he didn't like the questions?

This bald-headed poltroon is a disgrace to the office. Shame on the Republicans for kneeling to his unworthy bluster.

9 ( +10 / -1 )

Again do we know the exact reason as to why he can’t?

Because he can't operate the umbrella and too lazy to do so. Look:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avkkdrjDsTA

(again)

He is worried about messing up his orange fake hair. He is that selfish. Other leaders could do it and it shows how lazy Trump is since he could not.

He approaches it like a businessman

And his investors lost a lot of money. Should have nominated a real retired businessman like Bill Gates

Trump is a disgrace, how low can he go?

The worst thing is that no matter how low this, fat, lard-ridden idiot cosplaying as the President goes, his servile lackeys on this website and others will eagerly support his depravity. I’m ashamed of my country to see so many Americans become such lowly bootlicks to a Mussolini wannabe.

I managed to go to work in the rain recently.

@Bass

The reason given for not going was the weather. Other leaders managed to get to ceremonies in the face of violent and dangerous drizzle. Kelly seemed to get there okay.

I applaud your attempts to imagine another reason here but you aren’t really going anywhere.

"officials said the decision was taken due to the weather and cited security concerns in hastily arranging a motorcade".

Sounds like Dump didn't even have a plan to attend, hence concerns in hastily arranging a motorcade. I bet if they told Dump McDonald's was going to be offered he'd be the first one there.

The people who are complaining are the same ones who wouldn’t mind much if Trump died in a helicopter crash on the way to that ceremony.

Marine One is a VH-60 'Whitehawk' helicopter, or a VH-3D Sea King if it's one of the older models. Both are all-weather capable helicopters. Both can handle a light sprinkle of rain that didn't even stop Parisians from taking a jog along the sidewalks.

@blacklab So as I said you can make all these snarky comments because you wouldn’t care if his helicopter crashed.

Making up imaginary thoughts of imaginary 'enemies' once more.

rational people would agree with the decision that was made by his staff to protect him.

How does that square with 'no one tells Trump what to do, he's his own boss'. If that's the case, perhaps it was the Koch brothers, maybe Putin himself who told Cadet Cupcake to stay away.

rational people would agree with the decision that was made by his staff to protect him.

Rational people don’t think that the President needs “protection” from drizzle during one of the most solemn rememberances of all time. Irrational people make endless excuses for their stinky, bloated, idiotic idol.

Is there something in the Constitution that says he has to attend?

Is there something in the constitution that says he shouldn’t be a lazy coward who sits in a hotel watching TV instead of representing his country like every other world leader in France at the moment because it is raining?

Probably not, so this is totally OK. Because the standard for judging Trump now according to you is that unless the Constitution specifically says he has to do something, he can just take it easy and skip whatever that was, no biggie.

I guess he is on a work to rule strike or something?

Trump avoids attending a grave for Americans on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

This is shocking behaviour. Trump is totally disrespectful of our military and soldiers

It's for the best. This is his how Trump "honours" people who died serving the country:

"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!"

In 2015, before he became so presidential, he was evidently aware that there was something called Memorial Day, but not at all sure what it was for.

"I would like to wish everyone, including all haters and losers (of which, sadly, there are many) a truly happy and enjoyable Memorial Day!"

Let me get something straight: Trump flew to Europe aboard Air Force One, paid for by American taxpayers, and then he doesn't even engage in the activity for which he supposedly made the trip because he's worried about getting his feet wet? Okay, fine. Then let him reimburse the US Treasury for the cost of the trip and he's off the hook.

9 ( +9 / -0 )

He still has not visited U.S. troops deployed to a war zone — although he has spent 72 days at Mar-a-Lago and 58 days at his Bedminster, N.J., golf club. Now he won't even pay respects to those who gave their lives for their country. He evaded service in Vietnam 5 times, preferring to let others make his sacrifice for him. He is a hypocrite, a coward, a humiliation, a disgrace, and the worst excuse for a US president in history.

So the repugnant excuse for a decent human first calls its a celebration rather than a commeration, then bails at a hint of rain? Should we offer some thoughts and prayers for him, in vain hope his attitude and common sense improve? Much like other problems where we offer thoughts and prayers?

I can understand from Trumps viewpoint. He is elderly (73)and not so fit anymore. Do these critics really want the USA President to catch a Pneumonia or Influenza, by being exposed to cold rainy weather? He can pay his respects in private, and keep building up a strong USA Military, economy and Stockmarket. Why all the hate?

-10 ( +3 / -13 )

We know Trump was too much of a coward to join his own war, but wow, not to honor Americans fallen and the soldiers of other nations as well because of a bit of rain -- that redefines "COWARD". I guess we know why he loves to grab P&&&y... he can never find one quite as big as he is himself.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Anyway, since Mr. "I Know more than scientists" can't even close an umbrella, I guess it's no surprise he didn't want to get a little wet. His hair might run and he'd find a Chinese-made US flag to wipe it with and let those colors run. May as well spit on the Americans' graves when he gets home... and before heading out for golf again.

bass4funk: "Is there something in the Constitution that says he has to attend?"

Oh, so suddenly you care about the Constitution again? You didn't earlier this week, and haven't every time Trump has broken it or claims he can ignore it with his powers. Sorry, bud, but you wouldn't care if it WERE in the Constitution. You'd say some executive order can simply override it and stand behind him while he does it. If I'm wrong, feel free to agree he cannot override Article 14 with an executive order.

6 ( +9 / -3 )

I am just infuriated by this poor excuse for a human being. My hometown is on fire, people caught and dying fleeing in cars, and he makes a political attack (hint: there are forests in that area). And then he won't brave the rain to honor American soldiers who endured the trenches in rain as their fallen were consumed by rats beside them.

What an extremely sick individual.

Oh how you must be sweating more than normal in front of those YouTube channel cameras in your basement! You are defending a man who spits on the people you claim to honor.

Trump could have looked Presidential today by honoring those who helped to ensure his freedom. Instead he put on his "Super Chump" outfit and would not go out in the rain when all other world leaders did their duty for their honored fallen. Chump puts himself before his country, before his family and before every living thing. Not a man you want leading the local boy scout troop let alone the USA.

I can accept the election if Robert Mueller says there was no collusion - but given Don Jr and Roger Stone imminent indictments, that seems unlikely...

What I can't accept is the constant racist dog whistles, the undermining of the free press, but most of all I can't and never will accept the continual lies and fabrications. Any one heard anything on the "invasion force" caravan since last Tues?

Trump doesn't have to attend, but it's not very manly to not attend because of rain

The US government always has backup preparations, including a rain option

Mere rain would not catch the US government unprepared - that would have been gross incompetence on their part

This is simply a personal decision

The only bowing and scraping I've seen is Trump groveling before Putin at their last meeting. Stay tuned for a repeat at the upcoming Summit.

Trump is so against NFL players who kneel when the national anthem is played and think that is being unpatriotic. Yet, he has the gall to pass up an opportunity to honor U.S. soldiers who gave their lives in battle. If that isn't being unpatriotic, then I don't know what is. And why? Because of a little rain. Heck, Obama once gave a speech honoring dead U.S. soldiers in an absolute pouring rain without an umbrella. Why was other world leaders like Merkel and Macron able to attend, and not the orange monkey?

True, he did dodge military service and isn’t worthy of much respect (though anybody can step on that hallowed ground, even spoiled draft dodgers). I guess it is a bit unfair for the public to expect their president to have both not avoided military service and to show up at events honoring the war dead even when it is raining.

That is way too high a standard to expect of course as very few within Trump’s demographic (failed real estate mogul turned TV star/ runner of fake university scam) could meet it.

The US and Russian leaders listened in silence as Mr Macron took a swipe at the rising tide of populism in the US and Europe, warning: “The old demons are rising again, ready to complete their task of chaos and of death.”

During a gathering of dozens of world leaders to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War, the French president went on: “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. “In saying, ‘Our interests first, whatever happens to the others’, you erase the most precious thing a nation can have, that which makes it live, that which causes it to be great and that which is most important: its moral values.”
