President Donald Trump during the Fourth of July Celebration 'Salute to America' event in Washington, D.C.

I didn’t watch Donald Trump’s sad wannabe-dictator parade, how did it go? Judging from the photos, not well. Mother Nature despises Trump, that’s why she made his non-bigly despot parade a total washout. The photos of the fireworks display were equally ominous given all of the dark storm clouds over Washington last night. By the way, once Trump is out of office, I would definitely recommend going to Washington for the Fourth of July – there’s a big “smokeout” where kids get high and watch fireworks, and the fireworks display is really, really cool. They do a good job normally. But this year’s was pretty bad.

What also sucked was that Trump made the whole thing into a partisan event, like he thought he could turn the annual Washington DC Independence Day events into a white supremacist MAGA rally. They didn’t invite any Democrats or give tickets to anyone from the Democratic party. It was such a “partisan” event that NBC, ABC and CBS all decided not to cover it. Which is good – fewer outlets should cover his sad little Nazi rallies.

Apparently, the crowd size wasn’t great either, which is probably why Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda toiled for ten whole minutes to get the Photoshop just right on this photo:

Going off of Twitter, basically everything from the podium back is taken from old 2008 photos of a different event at the Washington Monument. Trump and his people were so salty about attendance that they even had the Washington Monument’s webcam turned off ahead of time:

And lastly, Donald Trump thinks that the Continental Army took over the airports in 1781. I… have no words.
