Why didn't we do this before?
On July 4, we celebrated with friends at a lake house in North Texas. It turned out to be a great idea, especially when it was time to watch the fireworks.
Around 5 P.M., we started to watch President Trump and the parade. It pleased everyone present at the gathering.
It was great for a couple of reasons:
1. The Democrats cannot control themselves. They overreact, and their predictions don't come true, such as these comments via Lukas Mikelionis:
Trump's fervent critics, meanwhile, resorted to erecting a "Trump baby" balloon to protest what activists saw as his intrusion in Independence Day and a focus on military might that they associate with martial regimes.
"We think that he is making this about himself and it's really a campaign rally," said Medea Benjamin, Code Pink's co-director. "We think that he's a big baby ... He's erratic, he's prone to tantrums, he doesn't understand the consequences of his actions. And so this is a great symbol of how we feel about our president."
How silly does Medea look the day after? (Particularly after the balloon failed to fly?)
It was not a campaign rally, unless you think remembering past heroes and historic moments is now suddenly a Republican political ad.
2. The people loved it. My friends at the party saw it as a celebration of U.S. symbols and military.
3. President Trump did not make it about himself. He restrained himself and spoke a patriotic message.
Once again, President Trump makes a trap, and the crazy Left falls right in. These people hate Trump so much that they can't think straight.
None of the dire predictions came true. The parade was great!
