After Trump’s Awful Memorial Day Tweet, Obama Tweets What A Real President Should Say

President Trump chose to acknowledge the solemn occasion that is Memorial Day by tweeting about himself. He, of course, has not spent a day in military service; Trump has moreover berated and degraded true military heroes like Senator John McCain (R-AZ) who was held captive as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

The President tweeted saying:

“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!”

In stark contrast, former President Barack Obama tweeted to honor the servicemen and servicewomen who sacrificed their own lives for their country.

He said:

“We can never truly repay the debt we owe our fallen heroes. But we can remember them, honor their sacrifice, and affirm in our own lives those enduring ideals of justice, equality, and opportunity for which generations of Americans have given that last full measure of devotion.”

Obama’s message seems to point directly, without saying as much, to the appalling turn the country has taken under the leadership of President Trump. The ideals he listed, the reasons that brave men and women sacrificed themselves, are attacked by the Trump administration on a daily, if not hourly, basis.

The President has currently undertaken a campaign to destroy the independent Department of Justice. He has gone on the attack, questioning the probe and investigators looking into his campaign’s connections with Russians who meddled in the 2016 presidential election.

He attacks the free press continually. He admitted that he does so solely to protect himself. He told 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl “You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so that when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you.”
