Trump Goes On Epic Sunday Morning Rant, Tries To Create A Holiday That Already Exists

He has lost it!

Donald Trump has gone off the rails again today on Twitter, possibly to deflect after special counsel Robert Mueller filed a nearly 850-page sentencing memo that tore into the president’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort. Mueller’s prosecutors told the judge that Manafort is a “hardened” and “bold” criminal. This is a pretty big deal because Manafort will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.

So, naturally, Trump woke up this morning to announce that he’s starting a new tradition, that, after 240 years, obviously, no other president before him has been able to accomplish. America will now have fireworks on the 4th of July because of “your favorite president” so “HOLD THE DATE!”

The 4th of July already exists as an American holiday, though. Maybe Trump was announcing it to the group of Republicans who spent Independence Day in Russia last year. It’s hard to tell where the scandal-plagued president is coming from here.

“HOLD THE DATE!” President Exclamation Mark tweeted. “We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C., on July 4th. It will be called “A Salute To America” and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!”

Trump is hardly America’s favorite leader. He’s the least popular president in the history of polling. Only Trump’s base will believe that he just invented the 4th of July because the rest of us refuse to be gaslit.

Longtime Republican operative and Trump confidant Roger Stone was ordered by a federal judge on Thursday to not speak publicly about the investigation or case against him. That was after Stone posted a photo of the judge on Instagram with crosshairs in the background as if signaling his QAnon brain-trust followers what needs to be done. We mention Stone and Manafort because that’s what Trump is deflecting from and he’s really not doing a very good job of it.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
