Surely this will impress Vladimir


Donald Trump may be an idiot, but once he seizes on a really stupid idea, he certainly won't let it go -- so he's a consistent idiot, too. Take for example military parades: He wanted a bunch of tanks rolling around Washington DC for his inauguration, but had to settle for tractors, and that's just not good enough. So nobody should be surprised the idea is still animating what passes for his mind. While appearing with French president Emmanuel Macron, Trump couldn't stop yammering about how much he wants to do a military parade that would put France's Bastille Day festivities to shame:

You see, he was really impressed by how well France (Not Russia! Not North Korea! You're the parade!) puts on a great big public display of the defense budget:

“I was your guest at Bastille Day, and it was one of the greatest parades I've ever seen,” Trump told Macron, who sat next to him. “It was two hours on the button, and it was military might and, I think, a tremendous thing for France and the spirit of France.”

“To a large extent because of what I witnessed, we may do something like that on July Fourth in Washington down Pennsylvania Avenue,” Trump said.

And it was France, so you can't say it sounds totalitarian, now can you?

Emails obtained by HuffPo in March showed that despite denials from Team Trump, inauguration staff really had asked the Pentagon to show them a catalog of neato military hardware that could be rolled out to show that Donald Trump really loves him some tanks, so everyone will forget he was a draft-dodging chickenhawk who considered the struggle to not get herpes while sleeping around his "personal Vietnam."

Ultimately, the hopes for a big military parade came to nothing, although there was supposed to be a flyover of military aircraft. The flyovers were cancelled due to lousy weather, despite Mr. Trump's assurances that when he talked about it later, he'd say the rain stopped, the sun shone, and the biggest inauguration crowd in history watched in amazement as our beautiful planes flew over, each in a ray of sunlight sent by God.

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
