I think that the title of "Grand Poobah" would be more appropriate.

Grand Poo Bah

A Grand Poo Bah is any overbearing and pompous authority, often claiming numerous titles, roles or distinctions and frequently overplaying their hand. An overstuffed shirt. Someone who expects others to lick up to them for nothing. From a character in the 1885 Gilbert and Sullivan operetta The Mikado.

It's basically a troll move from the troll president. Most of what he does is trolling. If you're against it, you're a traitor. His base will eat that up.

Someone recently reminded me Trump was a multi-time draft dodger. Isn't this a stretch even by HIS low standards?

Trump's ideas all follow a similar pattern

 

1. They are simple. Usually boiled down to one sentence. "Repeal and replace." "Build a wall." "Lock her up."

2. Trump is not concerned with the detail.

3. Trump is not interested in doing the hard work or negotiating to make the idea reality.

4. They are not thought through.

5. When they fail because of reasons 2 - 4, it is somebody else's fault. Tweets of hate follow.

6. A driver for his limited number of ideas is competition with other leaders or previous presidents.

7. They are not beneficial for the nation or society nor philanthropic.

China continues to turn the South China Sea into its militarized lake.  The Taliban has solidified its hold on much of the countryside in Afghanistan and is now staging bloody attacks in the Kabul, in spite of Trump's troop surge.  Turkey has attacked our Kurdish allies in Syria, which may lead to a military confrontation between a key NATO ally and the US. 

 

Trump has diverted attention from these and other military issues by talk of a parade.  I still think he is an idiot, but he is a master of diversion.

Interesting prediction on what the date will be for trump's proposed fascist dictator parade. His birthday! :shock1:

This, and not the Bastille Day parade Trump witnessed in Paris last July 14, is likely the true inspiration for Trump’s parade idea. He does not so much envision an army at quick step but himself reviewing it. It is this that so offends — the American military as a Trump prop, its heroes, its wounded and its dead drafted to serve the needs of a squalid ego, and its somber tradition of martial modesty turned to bling by the vainglorious president. The appropriate date for such garishness is Trump’s own birthday — the former Flag Day, the future Trump Day, and, to some of us, the new Halloween.

Even the Trump supporters have gone quiet on this.  Doesn't anyone want to try and explain why this BS parade is a good idea?

Yeah, but if this goes forward the "trump supporters" will be calling anyone that thinks it's an awful and dangerous idea un-American treasonous traitors. Bank on it.
