Trump to Lead 100th Veterans Day Parade in New York

Source: Daily Beast

Donald Trump will finally get his wish when he kicks off the 100th annual Veterans Day parade in New York City on Monday. Before he became president, Trump donated huge sums of money to the veterans group that organizes the annual parade in hopes he would be named grand marshal—which the New York Post reports never happened. The president and first lady are expected to kick off the event and lay a wreath at the Eternal Light Memorial at Madison Square Park. “The president has been great supporter of our veterans and indeed this parade here in New York City for more than 25 years,” said Bill White, 2019 Veteran’s Day Parade co-producer. “What he is doing now as president with regard to veterans choice, funding our military, and holding them and their families in the highest regard is truly extraordinary. He is loved by our veterans for sure.” Trump has been booed several times as he’s made public appearances in recent weeks, including at a pro-wrestling event and a World Series game.

1. What a slap in the face to Veterans, everywhere

Hopefully the 'Veterans for Impeachment' will be there, with many signs.

He is. They will and have tolerated just about anything from him, but losing...they hate losers. That’s why his numbers with his white male base is tanking

Go dotard!! Put yourself out there, on full display for everyone to jeer, carry signs and in general tell you to fu...k off

9. Can't believe it - Then again it's a good political ploy

If he isn't booed, he gets points in just being there with the vets

If he is booed, it will look bad across America - Our vets in a parade being booed by association in a liberal city . And you know that is how it will portrayed on Fox, Limpy Limbaugh, and Hannity.

Damn, he can fuck things up

10. Trump isn't about to walk a parade route

and I don't think he'll ride in an open car. That means he'll probably ride in a 25 car motorcade, waving through a small bulletproof side window. I don't think that's exactly what he had in mind in years past.

I don't think he'll do it.

On edit:
After reading the article there are no plans for him to participate in the parade. He'll lay the wreath and leave. Just like when he was draft age, someone is designated to go in his stead.

11. NB: Trump's not actually marching..

The NY Post article has more information:
https://nypost.com/2019/11/06/trump-to-kick-off-100th-veterans-day-parade-in-nyc-on-monday/

It sounds like he's just laying a wreath/giving a speech at the start of the parade, standing at a WWI monument just inside Madison Square Park, at 24th Street and Fifth Avenue. (GMaps: https://goo.gl/maps/iYiNTtGyuR9MP4Xb8) So, it will probably be completely controlled re: the audience that is actually there listening to him.

The groups marching in these kinds of parades are queued up on side streets near the beginning of the route, entering the parade in pre-determined stages. So it's not likely that there will be a crowd of marchers simply congregating where he is.

NYS/NYC elected officials usually do participate, but they'll probably be marching.

What the actual hell is White talking about? Obama is why we have choice. Funding his billionaire assholes in the Military Industrial Complex dies not send any additional pay to troops or vets. The families have had food assistance cut, and why the fuck do they have to have assistance. His two Con buddies, never served were Placed in charge of VA. Fuck this orange coward inserting himself into a day "I" earned, by joining with a draft number of 324. This veteran is sick deep in my cut from this shit. Fuck you White.

do you fucking think it is appropriate to send troops from this country to protect "oil wells" instead of , I don't know the word democracies......................or "allies".........................that are aligned with................ oh I don't know Nato............................this asshole with the tiny hands and the mop over orange hair, has not once gone to the Vietnam Wall Memorial, World War 11 Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial, Arlington........I bet one doughnut that your "guy" has no clue what Arlington means and how it was started as a grave site, not one fucking clue........he has yet to lay a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington, but your "guy" dude, thinks it is just fine and dandy to promote his worthless enabling son's book and have him going around and say that John F. Kennedy would be considered an alt-right nationalist today in the democratic party...........................JFK, was fighting against authoritarianism and fascists alignment that was trying to engulf the world..........................he is one of only two presidents that did not take the pay check from the taxpayers for the position of being a president, he wanted that money to go to social programs, you know like feeding the hungry and the homeless.......................but your "guy" is klepto fascists..........................

maybe you should take off your .................... ...............he has not once defended or protected the constitution ...........you know how he has openly asked foreign powers to interfere in our elections...........................he is a fucking traitor...................

November 3, 2020 cannot get here fast enough.......................or impeachment which ever comes first....................

"He is loved by our veterans for sure."

I'm a Vet, and I loathe his fat ass. He's probably just starting (again) to woo the military for his anticipated takeover, martial law, or simply canceling the election and our government. He can't do it alone.

I'd love it if he would get the same hostility at this parade that he has gotten the last two times he tried to grace us with his presence.

What is it that the parade arrangers need from Trump that caused them to drop to their knees and...??? A permit? Vets ought to boycott this parade.

California says hello, you fat, worthless fucker. Do us all a favor and eat another two dozen cheeseburgers.

This is something that all the tyrants seem to have in common: they end up wearing some kind of uniform. Watch for this indication of his plan to declare a dictatorship.

45. Headline is deceptive - consider the source.

The article of origin is from a Rupert Murdoch (News Corp) rag obviously completely lacking in editorial credibility.

If tRump truly lead a parade in NYC, the entire supply of eggs in the city would be exhausted in minutes.....

Link to original article in NYP: https://nypost.com/2019/11/06/trump-to-kick-off-100th-veterans-day-parade-in-nyc-on-monday/

Note the headline says "kick-off" rather than "lead".

This, too:
Trump won’t be marching in the parade after his opening ceremony speech. But Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger will serve as honorary grand marshal and will lead a contingent of Marines up Fifth Avenue.
+++
Trump recently bid adieu to New York City and named Mar-a-Lago his permanent residence. But the former New Yorker will stick around after the parade for a speech at the Economic Club on Tuesday.

KY.......
