Earlier today, CNN revealed that the treasonous, insurrection-inciting individual who we for some reason are still referring to as President of the United States is hoping for a big military-style sendoff when he leaves office. Trump, who has never served and who has demeaned and insulted our military servicemen and women time and time again, has long fancied himself as a strong commander-in-chief. Unfortunately for him, the days of his military LARPing are almost over.
Defense One reports that far from throwing Trump an extravagant, North Korea-style military event the Department of Defense will break tradition by not throwing an Armed Forces Farewell for him. Two senior Pentagon officials revealed to Defense One that none is being planned. While no official explanation has been given, it seems clear from Trump’s penchant for ego feeding and the desires he’d expressed earlier for an authoritarian-style military send-off that this was not the decision of the ostensible Commander-in-Chief.
The revelation comes in the wake of last Wednesday’s insurrection during which a mob of MAGA maniacs, urged on by the president, stormed the Capitol building in a harebrained attempt to overturn the election. Trump, perhaps too wrapped up in self[-pity, will not be joining Vice President Mike Pence as he delivers a speech about the administration’s imagined foreign policy accomplishments to sailors at Naval Air Station Lemoore. Pence will also travel without the president to speak at Fort Drum.
The lack of a proper farewell for this disgraced commander-in-chief is a fitting end to his tenure. Thankfully, we will soon have a leader in the White House who both understands and appreciates the sacrifices made by our brave armed forces. Our adversaries around the world know that the weak leadership of the past four years is finally coming to an end and a brighter America lays ahead.
