Memorial Day 2019

More than 37,000 American flags are now on the Boston Common — an annual tribute to fallen military service members. 

 Each flag represents a Massachusetts resident who has died in military service since the Revolutionary War. 

 This is the 10th year that volunteers have planted the flag garden that goes up before every Memorial Day weekend.

This MEMORIAL DAY....Remembering those Black soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for a nation that did not honor them!

Never forget that the current POTUS mocked those who served in Vietnam by saying his fear of STDs was akin to facing a murderous enemy. 

Also, never forget what he said about a man who was tortured and endured unspeakable agony as a POW in service to America. 

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER FORGET what a horrible man DJT is:

God Bless all who served our country.

And shame on Pres. Trump for cheapening the sacrifices of our brave men and women in uniform.

Anon, President Bone Spurs has no shame. While out of the country, he made fun of a former American senator and vice president and joined in with a Communist butcher (his government killed a young American) in trashing Joe Biden.

Trump has no shame. He doesn't even know that cozying up to a Communist killer makes him and our country look stupid and disgraceful.

Here's the GOP's president making fun of an American and siding with the Communists.

Last week, the KCNA called former Vice President Joe Biden “a fool of low IQ” and mocked Biden for thinking he is a popular presidential candidate. “This is enough to make a cat laugh,” the report said. Trump on Saturday tweeted his support for North Korea’s views on Biden’s intelligence, though he spelled Biden’s name wrong in the process.

Where are his supporters on this? Oh, yeah. Nothing trump does, even siding with a Communist against America makes them uncomfortable. Because they're as corrupt and awful as he is.

That is a nice tradition you do in Boston. To bad honoring those who served our country has to turn into a political attack. Guess nothing is sacred anymore.

You're right, skudrunner. It is shame that DJT besmirched Memorial Day by trashing an American politician and siding with a murderous Communist tyrant. What a despicable, rotten American DJT is.
