President Trump tweeted out a Memorial Day message noting that those who died serving this country “would be very happy and proud” at how well the U.S. is doing today. . .
Happy Memorial Day! 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!

Naturally, Trump’s message – like all his tweets which are analyzed by the left for every nuance to be used against him – sparked a round of backlash. Critics attacked the president for daring to use his Memorial Day message as a platform for celebrating the accomplishments of his presidency instead of focusing on military service members who died in the line of duty.
My advice, FWIW: If you happen to have encountered this tweet, as I did–put it out of mind. There are so many appropriate expressions of respect and appreciation on this Memorial Day that deserve your attention, and that reflect well on the country. Attend to them. Ignore Trump. https://t.co/w5O7Ik0VUD

Many people question this president, but it’s no small achievement to write the grossest, most inappropriate, most self-flattering Memorial Day message in the history of the US presidency https://t.co/t8JN7JNwdg

But Trump’s supporters saw nothing wrong in his tweet, just happy to have a president who even cared about members of the military.
Exactly??? Not one thing all these butt hurt snowflakes know how to do is attack greatness… they really have a problem with US doing well.
