What a sad little f*ck.
 
2019-02-24 08:13:25 AM  
and an address by your favorite President

Teddy Roosevelt?

me!

No, gross, go away!

When you have to immediately follow up your boast to remind people that you meant you, well, it's like really really bad sketch comedy tropes.
 
2019-02-24 08:19:10 AM  
He's going to invent Memorial Day, next.
 
2019-02-24 08:21:28 AM  
 Huh. I hope Dotard reserved the space before the people planning the Independence Day celebration reserved it.  It's even possible the people planning the annual Fourth of July parade  already arranged something!
 
2019-02-24 08:23:05 AM  
The Steve Jobs plan. Claim the credit for other peoples hard work. This is an interesting implementation

/wonder will the MAGAts realise that 4th July was already a thing
 
2019-02-24 08:25:19 AM  
Impeachment Day!
 
2019-02-24 08:27:50 AM  
Let me guess.
His newest theory is you can't impeach a POTUS who has invited you to the event of the season?

I'm torn.
Usually July 4th finds our small family enjoying a rare mutual day off.
I'll put our flag out on display. It will be 80 degrees by sunrise and it will rain, briefly, in the late afternoon hours, ensuring lung-sucking levels of humidity.
We will eat low-effort food - hotdogs, maybe. Potato salad.
Odds are I will be drunk by 7:30 pm - when we will walk (sweating and carrying a blanket, flashlight, bugspray and folding chairs) to the local golf course for fireworks.

We will sit and watch dusk draw down, children running with sparklers and glow-sticks, hugely pregnant moms, dads in goofy "day off" wear. At some distance we'll watch the professionals tend the fireworks, firetruck at the ready. There will be the sounds of John P. Souza rendered tinny over an outdated PA system, the smell of BBQ ($10 a plate for members) Then, fireworks. We oooh and aaahh and I will miss my mother, who taught me this tradition, in this same place, when I still needed to be carried on her hip.
I will marvel "oh - sparklies!" because they are my favorite.

We will walk home. It will be dark and there will be clouds of smoke and I will inhale the smell of spent powder and hear random booming from other revelers. I will squint and see the shades of past wars and be glad for peaceful streets. The cats will be deep in their bunker and slow to emerge.

I will think of our past, our wars, our fights for independence - and I will send a small wish to the Founding Fathers that we see a better POTUS - that we are worthy of another Washington, a Lincoln, still.

Gonna have to send my regrets, Donald.

Seeing as how I'm everybody's favorite mouse, we should celebrate my birthday on December 25th.

My birthday's not actually in December, but I am quite Christ-like, so it still works!
 
2019-02-24 08:36:20 AM  
I've decided to hold a college basketball tournament this March. Enjoy!
 
2019-02-24 08:40:14 AM  
I would speculate that he's not even Mitch McConnell's favorite president.
 
2019-02-24 08:43:12 AM  
if it's going to be preceded by about two months of rallies where he tries to learn his four minutes of new material, there at least might be a couple of months before those sh*tshows ratchet up again

"Hey, guys! I was doing some research and did you know that we signed something called a Declaration of Independence on July 4th, 1776? Wow! Why wasn't Obama celebrating this. It really makes you think! 🤔🤔🤔"
 
2019-02-24 09:00:14 AM  
So far, Trump has been wanting Frederick Douglass to appear with him onstage, but is frustrated that Douglass has not gotten back to him yet to confirm.
 
2019-02-24 09:03:58 AM  
What an idiot.  Everyone knows it's "save the date" not "hold the date".
 
2019-02-24 09:04:00 AM  
As fun as all this crap is, it is not the distraction the GOP is looking for.
If you want to hold something, hold the "presses" for the MONDAY DISTRACTION.
Come one, come all, step right in to the worst timeline of the century.
 
2019-02-24 09:17:25 AM  
Somewhere in another timeline Fox News talking heads are apoplectic because Obama wrote in a tweet that he is your favourite President. Their Sean Hannity is angrily asserting that Obama has insulted the legacy of the great Presidents who came before him. Laura Ingraham informs us that his ego is out of control. Fox and Friends devote several minutes to discussing how this tweet proves once again that Obama has shown himself unworthy of the dignity of his office with his self-serving grandstanding.

Meanwhile their viewers at home take it all in and mumble to anyone unfortunate enough to be within earshot that they knew that boy was uppity.
 
2019-02-24 09:24:04 AM  
Sad cringe material, right there.
 
2019-02-24 09:31:29 AM  
I'm sure Fox News' Memory Holes are working overtime removing all references to past Independence Day celebrations and editing in footage of random holidays when the government was closed "this is what the 4th looked like under Democrat presidents but Trump's new holiday will finally celebrate America. Next up: Donald Trump invents something he's calling 'fireworks'"
 
2019-02-24 09:33:16 AM  
February 27th.  Trump's personal lawyer is testifying to Congress.  Hold the date.
 
2019-02-24 09:37:26 AM  
What happened to the parade of troops and nucular tipped submarines through D.C.?

criscodisco: What an idiot.  Everyone knows it's "save the date" not "hold the date".


It is a small hands thing. Holding anything is a big deal.
 
2019-02-24 09:40:05 AM  

DannyBrandt: What happened to the parade of troops and nucular tipped submarines through D.C.?


Trump changed plans and went for the Space Force Department instead?

Any dictator can have a military parade. It takes a true master of the universe to start an entirely new branch of the military.
 
2019-02-24 09:43:17 AM  
So, when some ahole neighbor decides midnight is a good time to salute America by setting off a barrage of cherry bombs, Trump accepts the blame?

Does make it hard to watch the parade though you won't wreck the infrastructure with ground units.

Unless he will accept being paid with spa visitation rights, is a lost cause.
 
2019-02-24 09:52:43 AM  
No one watch. No one go. Everyone do something else.

Ignoring him is the best way to hurt him.

I don't believe a word of this.

Drunk by 7:30 pm? And you call yourself a Farker...
 
2019-02-24 09:53:47 AM  
Maybe Trump will shut down the government so all the federal workers will get the day off.
 
2019-02-24 09:53:55 AM  
Great. Another thing he's going to ruin.
 
2019-02-24 09:54:12 AM

Even the facepalm mosaic isn't enough facepalm
 
2019-02-24 09:56:11 AM  
My favorite part was that he had to remind everyone that HE is their favorite President.
 
2019-02-24 09:56:15 AM  
Government can't afford to do annual pay raises to keep up with inflation, but can throw a massive July 4th celebration to in honor of Trump. Makes sense.
 
2019-02-24 09:56:34 AM  
Isn't that the 12th of June?
 
2019-02-24 09:56:41 AM  
Translation:
Deplorables Meeting
July 4th, Lincoln Memorial.
Bring your hate and your MAGA hat.

kling_klang_bed: Favorite President?

[img.fark.net image 425x288]


the style and signs in the back made me think it was an al jaffee fold-in from MAD
 
2019-02-24 09:57:16 AM  
So, a typical 4th of July?

Gubbo: When you have to immediately follow up your boast to remind people that you meant you, well, it's like really really bad sketch comedy tropes.


Maybe he's saying it ironically. Maybe he's also hoping he's not in jail by then?
 
2019-02-24 09:57:17 AM  
And anyone not there, Fox will call unpatriotic.
 
2019-02-24 09:57:20 AM  
Don't make any long term plans, Dotard.

Keep your eye on the real objective. Hurting Trump is not at all difficult and the rush would be over in seconds. Taking down the premier human trafficking network that is large and in charge of several governments is the real target.
 
2019-02-24 09:58:10 AM  
I suspect the plan is to hold a really kick ass 4th celebration, come out and give a stupid campaign rally speech, and then tell himself that all the people were there for the campaign rally.
