He Loves a Parade

POTUS45 cancelled his military parade that had been planned to take place on or about Veteran’s Day.  He used his favorite means of communicating with the masses to explain why the parade was canceled:

The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it. When asked to give us a price for holding a great celebratory military parade, they wanted a number so ridiculously high that I cancelled it. Never let someone hold you up! I will instead…

….attend the big parade already scheduled at Andrews Air Force Base on a different date, & go to the Paris parade, celebrating the end of the War, on November 11th. Maybe we will do something next year in D.C. when the cost comes WAY DOWN. Now we can buy some more jet fighters!

 

The total cost estimate for the parade has not been made public; however, some estimate it to be 80 to 90 million dollars.  The D.C. government says its costs will be around 21 million dollars:

Yup, I’m Muriel Bowser, mayor of Washington DC, the local politician who finally got thru to the reality star in the White House with the realities ($21.6M) of parades/events/demonstrations in Trump America (sad).

 

FYI…According to one of POTUS45’s favorite “Fake News” sources, the cost of one F-35 fighter plane is about 94.6 million dollars. 

P.S. In case you are history-challenged and don’t know which war POTUS45 is talking about, it’s the one that ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
