Why do the Democrats seem to hate celebrating America so much?
President Trump announced he was throwing a huge 4th of July celebration this year.
You’d sure think everyone could support that.
Not Kamala Harris.
Here’s what Trump announced (see if you’re offended by this when you read it):
Sounds like a great party to me!
A Salute to America!
But not to Kamala Harris.
Here was her reply:
The Hill explained more:
"I think the President needs to realize it’s America’s birthday, not his birthday,” she said Sunday while at a campaign event in Iowa.
Trump on Sunday urged Americans to "hold the date" on Independence Day — which is already a federal holiday — for "one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C."
"It will be called 'A Salute To America' and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial," Trump tweeted. "Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!"
The nation's capital already has a range of annual festivities on the Fourth of July, including a fireworks show at the National Mall, a free concert and a parade down Constitution Avenue.
Trump first floated the idea for a Fourth of July celebration earlier this month when he brought it up during a Cabinet meeting. It is unclear how Trump's proposed idea would coexist with the existing D.C. Fourth of July celebrations.
Harris joined a number of Democratic lawmakers who poked fun at Trump's proposal on Sunday, noting that the nation's capital already holds a number of Independence Day events.
"If this goes well, I think we should follow it with a big party in Times Square the night before New Year’s Day," Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), who is said to be mulling a 2020 presidential bid, tweeted.
Keep it up Dems, and I believe you're walking yourselves right into the biggest loss in election history in 2020!
Nobody wants to vote for Eeyore!
