Instead of a costly parade to puff up Trump's insatiable ego ....

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by muriel_volestrangler (a host of the The DU Lounge forum).

I would like to see a group of prominent Democrats speak up about the heinous waste of money ($92 million ) that Dumpy's parade is costing ..... and propose that, instead of a parade, why don't we honor our military by using that same amount of money to increase their pay and take better care of our sick and homeless veterans?

9. Hear, Hear!

 

More needs to be said about this obscene waste of money and the shameful neglect of our vets. This is an absolute outrage. I am not even in the military and it makes me furious that a draft-dodging coward is spending almost $100 million of taxpayer money to pay tribute to himself and consequently deprive deserving veterans and military members of the assistance that they so desperately need. I can't understand how any decent person could possibly support this.

10. I can't understand how any decent person

especially lawmakers ... can stay silent on this! Why are they all so afraid of speaking up against the Orange Turd? This is an outrage! I still can't believe it!
