President Donald Trump announced a massive Fourth of July celebration to take place this year on Sunday.
You would think that the announcement is something that every American could get behind and support.
But this is President Trump and even him sneezing is something that would trigger liberals and Never Trump Republicans.
“HOLD THE DATE! We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C., on July 4th,” he said.
“It will be called “A Salute To America” and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!”

You would have to be a twit of epic proportions to not comprehend that he is talking about a new celebration that has not been done before.
And knowing President Trump and his penchant for showmanship it is a fair assumption that it will be grand.
But that is not how his detractors see it. They think that he believes he invented Independence Day.
Chief among them is Never Trump Republican Bill Kristol who makes tons of cash these days by bashing Republicans and in particular President Trump.
There should be a patriotic counter-gathering where excerpts from some of these wonderful speeches and writings on the real meaning of Independence Day are read, to remind us that we are better than Trump, and that America is better than Trump’s America.https://t.co/2aRXcj1J2d https://t.co/Sl5emQykP4

Independence day is about our celebration of freedom, not about you.

And we don’t want your “A Salute to America” celebration. We already have Independence Day. You are literally a slap in the face to our forefathers. You are trying to give our independence away to Russia.
