Trump Will Host July Fourth Event At The White House Despite…Everything
Colleen Grablick

Despite pushback from local lawmakers and D.C.’s current coronavirus restrictions, Trump plans to host his Fourth of July celebration at the White House.

" target="_blank">The White House announced Friday that Trump, along with the Department of the Interior, will host the “Salute to America” celebration on the South Lawn of the White House and Ellipse on July 4 — complete with music, military flyovers, and a nightcap of “spectacular fireworks” over the National Mall.

The announcement comes after weeks of concern from local and federal officials. Trump said during a late-April coronavirus briefing that he had no intentions of cancelling his second-annual Independence Day event, and a month later, Members of Congress representing the National Capital Region came out against plans for large public celebrations in a letter sent to the secretaries of defense and the interior.

2. I see it as...

Presidented XiUnTrumputin's celebration will be a salute to Fascist America. A dictator fest, for sure. A tribute to the defeat of our democracy. A military tribute to tyranny in office.

They should have a YUGE! Mussolini cake and then hang it upside down in a couple different places. Serve some good old despot flavored ice cream on genuine Hitler Ice Cream Cones as well.

4. Will the fences go back up? Threatening low flying helicopters for Trump's amusement?
