tRump's Old Pearl Harbor Tweet Resurfaces At The Most Awkward Possible Time

The presidentís unusual attack on Barack Obama is getting new attention as he visits Japan.


- HuffPost


On Memorial Day weekend, 3 years ago, Trump criticized Obama for not discussing ďthe sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while heís in Japan.Ē I wonder if a journalist might want to ask him whether heís going to bring it up now that heís in Japan, as president, on Memorial Day weekend?

DJT - Does President Obama ever discuss the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he's in Japan? Thousands of American lives lost. #MDW -

6. Of course not - if he did not like "loser" McCain

for being captured, why would he honor the ones that really "lost" and died in service? Blackhearted Demon!

He lacks honesty, sincerity, and good judgement. To understate the case.

Not to mention how anyone claiming to be a Christian can.

32. He has no idea that it happened December 6, 1941.

He thinks it happened during Obama's first term. Wasn't Frederick Douglass killed in that attack on Pearl Harbor as well? I think he was aboard the West Virginia, if I'm not mistaken.

39. Is it sarcasm to mis-state the date?

The attack on Pearl Harbor traditionally is dated as December 7, 1941.

14. Cowards like trump who evaded the draft

Sure like to be critical of others but they always show their true colors, and this is no different now. He didn't mention to putin about his attacks , and ongoing attacks on the USA, or to the leaders of Japan because he's too scared to confront people face to face. Just like he has others fire his top people, or by tweets or , again because he's a coward. Yet he like to claim America first, but that's just another obvious lie from trump. trump puts putin and russia first , not America.

cheating at golf.

He lacks honor, as well as the ability to recognize it in others, so he probably has already forgotten who and what Memorial Day is intended to salute. I doubt he could care less.

19. Reasons why Obama did not discuss it

 

1. What good does it do to discuss it?
2. Although the attack took many lives, and massive destruction, USA at the end came on top.
3. Should they also be discussing Hiroshima and Nakasaki?

Reason why the buffoon will not talk about it:
1. He doesn't know or understand what happened at Pearl Harbor.

Perhaps not. Trump's atavistic protectionism might suffer in the historical light.

"Fake news!" "Revisionist history." (That second quote would not come from Trump as the words have too many syllables.)

and why Germany rejected his grandfather's application to go back.
