“President@realDonaldTrump a no-show because of raindrops? Those veterans the president didn’t bother to honor fought in the rain, in the mud, in the snow — & many died in trenches for the cause of freedom. Rain didn’t stop them & it shouldn’t have stopped an American president,” wrote former Secretary of State John Kerry, a veteran of the Vietnam War.    [Politico]

 

Trump traveled to Paris to honor our vets;

To lay down a wreath so that no one forgets.

His duty was calliing

But  raindrops were falling

So Trump sent John Kelly along with regrets.

  • He apparently attended a dressing down by Macron in the rain. But I guess the real problem was that there wasn't a commemoration for military academy supply sgts.

  • Maybe it was a bad hair day? He doesn't know what to do with an umbrella, either....

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    Either.

  • "If ye break faith with us who die,"
    I guess we'll find out now, won't we?
    Sigh.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    The torch must be too heavy for him to hold high. Sad.
