Popular vote loser Donald Trump is basically the used care salesman of American Presidents.
But instead of exploiting a holiday set aside to remember and show respect to the brave men and women who have given their lives in service to our country, Trump is exploiting it to sell ugly hats and bumper stickers. #MAGA, am I right?
Saturday morning a post went up on Trump’s official Facebook page announcing a Memorial Day sale at the official Trump online store.
“In honor of Memorial Day, we’re doing 25% off all MAGA gear! Use code REMEMBER” to receive this the deal, the post exclaimed.
Trump clearly has no idea that Memorial Day is a sacred holiday that should not be used to peddle crappy products from his website. It’s a day that doesn’t celebrate at all. It’s a day to honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for complete strangers like me and you. I guess Trump likes to do that by persuading his voters to give him money in exchange for a crappy product.
Trump’s supporters give him a pass for disrespecting women, Democrats, immigrants, anyone without white skin, etc. Think he’ll get a pass on such blatant disrespect for America’s fallen heroes? That’s a rhetorical question. Of course he will.
Of course, Trump’s defenders will argue that this is no different that a retail shop holding a Memorial Day sale, but it’s WAY different. A retail store owner isn’t the Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America who’s trying to pad his political wallet. If you can’t see the difference in that, then you are truly blind.
