There are people that say every time Trump says something petulant that Trump is playing 3-D chess while the Democrats are playing checkers.
I can’t always believe that.
Every once in a while, I do believe that Trump is a master level Troll.
This is one of those times.
Trump’s State of the Union was fairly popular. There were some points in it that were nothing but patriotic pablum. Something so easy to like that there was no way it could be turned against him
The honoring of Preston Sharp, a boy who planted flags on the grave of veterans, was one of those moments. Every American should have been able to say “good job Preston.”
The Democrats had their assholes so puckered with #Resistance that they couldn’t even applaud that.
It looked bad.
So… fast forward. It get’s leaked to the media that Trump wants a military parade.
I honestly doubt that. His Secretary of
Kicking Ass Defense is James Mattis. Mattis isn’t the parade type. The parade was never going to happen.
What the news of Trump floating the idea of a parade did was make #Resistance fall all over themselves to #Resist.
DC Council members want a counter-military parade.
DC Council member @cmdgrosso says that if President Trump's military parade happens, he'd like to organize 'an equally large parade and march for peace' that would take place simultaneously in the nation's capital.

People are volunteering to lie in the streets like Tienanmen Square.
We now have nearly 50 Americans who have signed on to lay in front of the tanks if Trump brings out a Military parade. We are not an empire drifting towards extinction. Will you join us? Here's the call to action video https://t.co/gqxAoGJmAf

Saying that this is evidence of Trump being a despot.
Trump’s wannabe despot checklist:
✓Call press “enemy of the people”
✓Call to jail political opponents
✓Fire people investigating you
✓Politicize law enforcement
✓Lie to boost cult of personality
✓Host strongman military parade

Getting MDA founder (and I believe future CO Senate candidate) Shannon Watts to equate the military to neo Nazis.

I think this was all a ploy to get Liberals to #Resist so hard that they made themselves look like the military hating, anti-American nut jobs that they are.
Colorado is big Military state. The Air Force Academy is in Colorado. This tweet is going to come back and bite Shannon Watts in the ass, hard, with people.
I honestly believe Trump was baiting these jackasses into doing something stupid and they took it and ran with it.
He may not be playing 3-D chess, but he knows how to make #Resistance expose the awful shittiness within themselves.
